GAME DESIGNER:Ancil Anthropy



Copyright 2003, Ancil Anthropy

Piquin is a neat and unique game from Ancil Anthropy, game designer who kindly made this game open source as well as freeware. If you think you have seen and played every kind of Pac-Man game, Piquin will surprise you with its original concept and delight you with its gameplay. Piquin is essentially a “turn-based” kind of Pac-Man: your goal is still to clear the mazes of dots and avoid the ghosts, but you now do it in turn-based gameplay, moving from one square to the next. The ghosts also move in turn-based, so planning and strategy become essential element of gameplay. Too bad the designer did not take this concept further – a combination with the gameplay of DrRoboWhoids would have made the game more challenging and interesting – but as it stands, Piquin is still entertaining enough to hold your interest, whether or not you are a die-hard fan of Pac-Man. The game comes with only four levels, but hopefully with its open-source nature, we will see more levels and enhanced gameplay in the future. Recommended!
