Product Description

Pac Pix is a fun new platform adventure starring the first great hero of the arcades! One day a mischievous wizard invented "Ghost Ink." Everything drawn with the Ghost Ink turned into Ghosts. As the Ghosts cause havoc around Pac World, Pac-Man moves in to beat them with his Magic Pen -- but he's been captured in a piece of paper! Now it's up to you. Draw Pac-Man and control him with your stylus, bringing peace and quiet back to the world. You can even blow things up by drawing bombs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great basic arcade-puzzling game July 1, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you've got a DS and enjoy classic arcade style games, then be sure to give Pac Pix a try. You get to draw your very own pac-man and watch it gobble up ghosts!

Let me say first that this is a basic arcade game - it's NOT a game with complex soundtracks, with high quality anime fighting characters. If you're looking for shoot-em-up adventure, this just isn't it. It's more a complex puzzle game that gives you an artistic outlet. For me, this is just perfect.

In essence, you are drawing arcade weapons on the bottom part of your DS screen, to gather up goodies and eat up ghosts. You start with a pac-man. You can draw a big one that moves slowly, or a tiny one that moves super-quick. You can draw him with a big mouth or little. Whatever you draw, that's what takes off after the ghosts!

Now you draw lines to help your pac-creature move around. You can also draw arrows that fire off, bombs, and more. The puzzles grow more complex as you go - but part of the challenge here is to replay levels to try to do them as quickly as you can. This is where the puzzle-like aspect really comes in. Do you draw two tiny pac-creatures and try to keep them both going - or do you draw a larger one to eat all the ghosts in one pass? By knowing the order in which the ghosts come out, and their placement, you can plot to get them in the most efficient manner possible.

I will say that someone with poor coordination might have trouble making a pac-creature properly. You of course have to have a general circle shape with a mouth. But the game does start in beginner steps so that you can practice and learn how to use the stylus, in order to get the hang of this. Really, with so many DS games involving fine stylus control, think of this as a practice game, to get your skills built up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pick Your Pac July 18, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You'll need coordination, quick reflexes and good aim if you plan on getting anywhere with Pac-Pix. Probably the most innovative title yet for the Nintendo DS, Pac-Pix has you drawing your own character and weapons for use in the game play. Few games before have been able to generate this level of connection with the player. When you see the Pac-Man you drew come to life and begin chomping baddies it's quite a thrilling experience.

The game play is almost more puzzle based than action or platformer based. You will have to figure out how to defeat enemies, get around brick walls, open doors, figure out how to defeat the boss baddies and try to collect extra lives and bonuses all while using the least amount of Pac-Mans. That's quite a lot to keep track of and it might make the game a bit daunting for some players.

There are many virtual cards that get unlocked as you play the game, but it would have been nice if a few more unlockable items were included. Also although the drawing interface is a wonder it doesn't always work well. I have a very hard time getting the game to recognize my arrows for some reason. Many times I have died on a level because my drawings weren't up to snuff.

If you are looking for an addictive, innovative game then look no further. There has never been a game like Pac-Pix before. It's probably not the best game for younger gamers, but moderate to experienced gamers can expect hours and hours of Pac-Man craziness.

A Kid's Review
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is awesome for those classic nintendo lovers. It brings back the old pac-man feeling and is a never-put-down-game-in-my-life game. I love the way it resembles the old pac-man games but also has a new kick in it, to since you can use the touch screen to conroll all of pac-man's movements. Be sure to get this game. Many reviews out there are very wrong. No offence, but u people who wrote bad reviews for this game, you dont know how to enjoy a simple classic game so why do u even bother getting it??? NEway, I reccomend this game for all, especially for thos classic nintendo lovers as I said earlier. Be sure to buy this game. Trust me, it is a must.

Thank you, and have a nice day :) :) :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun twist to the original Pac Man game. May 27, 2005
By K. Nash
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been having a lot of fun with this game. It is very innovative and really utilizes the touch screen. I mean, how fun to draw your own Pac Man and watch it come to life to play the game with! The object of the game (yes, there is one contrary to what other people have said) is to fight the ghosts and turn them back into "ghost ink". They had invaded all the pictures and books, but Pac Man was able to conquer most of the ghosts with his "magic pen" and put the rest of them together in one last book. But before he could turn them back into ghost ink, they put a curse on him. Now he is in the paper and it is up to you and Pac Man, along with the "magic pen" (your stylus), to finish the job and save the last book. You go through the chapters of the book and each chapter has levels to where you have to eat all the ghosts in order to advance to the next level or chapter. As you advance you earn weapons to help you along the way. There are also other fun things involved in this game but I don't want to spoil it for the people who get it. My favorite part of the game (besides making your drawings come to life) is trying to beat the bosses at the end of each stage. My only gripe is that if you don't beat a boss, you have to go back to the beginning of that stage and do all the levels in that chapter again. But that I think is a minor thing. The game gets harder as you go on and there are new things added and more to do to keep you interested. I don't find this game boring at all and it keeps me real busy and interested. Overall, I think Pac Pix is a cool game and is worth getting. It even makes me laugh at times, like if I draw a really funny Pac Man or he goes the wrong way. I don't have any regrets with buying this game.
