Ms. Pac-Man and Dig Dug heading to the PC
Infogrames will release two games based on the popular arcade characters this holiday season.
Infogrames has announced that it is developing two new PC games based on the popular Namco arcade characters Ms. Pac-Man and Dig Dug. The games are titled Ms. Pac-Man: Quest for the Golden Maze and Dig Dug: Deeper.
Ms. Pac-Man: Quest for the Golden Maze will let players once again try to keep Ms. Pac-Man alive as they run away from ghosts and try to collect special fruit that will unlock the final prize: the golden maze. The game is being designed to add more interactivity and replay value while maintaining the critical gameplay elements that made the original Ms. Pac-Man the best-selling arcade game ever.
In Dig Dug: Deeper, players must guide the hero, armed with his drill and extermination pack, through underground areas in search of gems while avoiding his enemies, the pookas and the fygars.
Ms. Pac-Man: Quest for the Golden Maze and Dig Dug: Deeper are in development at UK-based Creature Labs, and they are scheduled for release this holiday season.
