Construction Equipment Pac-Man

These days, you can play Pac-Man on your phone. But it’s way more fun to play the classic arcade game using heavy-duty construction equipment.

Twinkie the Jack Russell Terrier loves to chomp on balloons, so her popping obsession served as the perfect setup for a game of Pac-Man, in which she gobbles up every single power pill in the maze, finishing a level much faster than most humans could do.

Pac-Man: Come out to Play

Pac-Man: Come out to Play

A lighthearted take on the 1979 classic The Warriors replacing the original’s street thugs with Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde, and Pac-Man himself. It’s a fun action-packed short from Fury Fingers, though we were hoping the Furies would turn up to play some R.B.I. Baseball.

Pac-Man Smash Air Hockey

Pac-Man Smash Air Hockey

This insane variant of air hockey subjects players to a barrage of pucks instead of just a single one. Much like multiball mode on pinball, most of them will drain quickly, but the longer you can hang on, the more you score. For 2 or 4 players.
