Pac-X released! - February 13,1999 by JoseQ
Update! The first version of PacX has beenreleased. This is a very preliminary version which still doesn't havethe 3D display working, but you can get an idea at what the game/emulatoris going to be like. You can visit the PAC-X Home Page to read about it and download it. Thanksto Retrogames whichhosts the Pac-X page, for the news.
By now you should be wondering what Pac-X is, right? It is mostly the work of Mike Balfour, of MAMEDEVfame.Well it is definitely something new and different in asense. Here's the definition from the page: "Pac-X is a 3-D first-person version of Pac-Man running off of the original game engine through the magic of emulation.". This meansthat you would still be playing Pac-Man while still lookingat a game that seems entirely different.
The game itself is the same as the original Pac-Manas it runs via an emulator core, and reading through theoriginal ROMs as well. It basically triggers differentthings than what the original game did. This means thateverything will "move" the same way, while in essence, thePac-Man maze may be in a Doom-Like perspective and theghosts are in 3-D coming at you.
I'm really looking forward to seeing this emulator, which will be released either today or tomorrow. It willbe interesting to see how the layout looks, and how youwould know what's coming behind you. I'm definitelylooking forward to having my enhanced Pac-Man experience.For the first time, we will probably see the game throughthe eyes of Pac-Man. I will post it here as soon as itcomes out!
