You remember Namco Bandai's Galaga
, don't you? The very mention of it should conjure images of a lone spacecraft darting through unrelenting waves of giant insects, with bullets whizzing by
and an unusually pleased Pac-Man rolling past. Oh, you don't remember him being there? That's because you haven't seen Namco Museum
for the Wii yet -- the "Remix" part referring to the inclusion of gluttonous gaming icon, Pac-Man
, into every one of the revamped titles.
The image above is from Galaga Remix
, a point-and-shooter (yes, really) that forms part of the five Wii-vitalized games included in Namco Museum Remix
. Others detailed
by IGN are:
- Pac 'n Roll Remix -- Much like the early DS game, Pac-Man has to roll his obese body to the end of the level while overcoming enemies, obstacles and a self-image problem.
- Pac-Motos Remix -- Pac-Man knocks his opponents out of dangerous arenas. He'll eat them later.
- Rally-X Remix -- It's a 3-D version of Rally-X, only with Pac-Man driving the car (miraculously sans arms and legs).
- Gator Panic Remix -- Whack-a-Mole, but with gators. And Pac-Man.
, Dig Dug, Mappy, Xevious, Gaplus, Super Pac-Man, Pac & Pal, Pac-Mania
and Cute Q
will also be included, though they'll all have to make due without a "remix." Namco Museum Remix
releases on Wii this Fall.
