Paques is a reimplementation of PacMan/Snapper for
32-bit machines. It's a simple port that sticks to the original game with
no thrills, other than than some pleasant high-resolution graphics. The
main game character is a bit bland, but the ghosts are nicely drawn.
If you're not very good at PacMan then you'll love Paques, but
anyone else will soon discover that it's home to the dumbest ghosts in
maze-game history! I spent so long playing the game that without having lost
a life by level 12 I got bored and gave up. These ghosts are so stupid they
come towards you whilst edible and run away from you when chasing you. Oh
There's a desktop front-end with a high score table and a couple of sound
options, none of which do anything about the appallingly annoying sound
effect played when you eat a power pill!
Still, it looks quite nice and it's a very quick download...
