Get the goods on the Pac-Man video game: Pac-Pix with our Nintendo DS game review!

Pac-Man is one of the oldest video game heroes ever - older than Mario, older than Zelda and maybe even older than your Mom. He just celebrated his birthday on May 11, 2005 and Namco just released a new Pac-Man video game for the Nintendo DS, Pac-Pix. Here's the scoop!

What's the Deal With Pac-Pix?

Basically it's a game about drawing Pac-Man. You're supposed to save him from the evil ghosts and you do it by drawing a picture of Pac-Man. Your Pac-Man picture comes to life (even if it's really freaky looking!) and it's up to you to guide it around levels and through boss battles.

Does Pac-Pix Give Pac-Man a Dose of Cool?

It gets really close! You can draw any kind of Pac-Man you want and play levels with some serious freaks under your control. The whole game looks pretty cartoon-ish and it isn't too hard so it's a nice fun game to play that won't stress you out. Plus, you can get extra moves that'll let you draw shapes to do other things.

Pac-Pix Video Game Weaknesses

Do you like doing stuff over and over and over again? Well, you'd better cuz you get to do a lot of the basic stuff about 10 billion times in Pac-Pix. It's cool at first, but starts to get boring after a while and the plain graphics don't help.

Pac-Pix - Old School or Old Skool?

It's a little wacky, a little repetitive and pretty good. Pac-Pix is definitely a game worth renting and, if you dig the Pacmeister, worth picking up for some serious game time.

Pac-Pix Thumbs Up:

  • Freakishly mutant Pac-Men under your command.
  • Easy for any player.
  • Cool cartoony levels.
  • Pac-Pix Thumbs Down:

  • Only a few basic moves means it gets old, fast.
  • Pac-Pix Game Rating: 4
