Game Idea Pacland (working title)

Post by CarnivorousA on Sat Sep 05, 2009 7:33 pm

I'm making a platform version of pacman. It won't be just a normal pacman but platform game there will be stuff like land mines and turret guns trying to destroy you. It's in 640x480 resolution and 16-bit colour for a retro look, runs smoothly.

I'm not sure how this is going to turn out, so tell me now if I should continue making it or not.

I don't really have an idea for a story, but it starts off the old retro blue look then becomes real. Some ideas I have are:
Pacman realises gaming technology is getting way better so he tries to catch up.
Pacman somehow went to another dimension where there is gravity.
Pacman discovers there are way more dots in the gravity realm then the topdown realm so he goes there to get them.
Pacman... idk.
Ghosts hid all of pacman's dots in the platform realm and he goes to get them back.

I need some more story detail.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pac-Land Already done...sorta

It seems like an ok idea i guess. Here is a story suggestion

Pacman turns gay so Ms. Pacman kicks him into Platform land.

lol, nearly there, it could have something to do with Ms. Pacman/Pacwoman... Thinking faces everyone.

More ideas:
Ms. Pacman gets pacwomannapped by ghosts so he goes to get her.
Ms. Pacman goes on a holiday to platform land and hasn't come back yet, you learn she has been pacwomannapped by the ghosts.

Well any suggestions?

Idea:
Pacman learns that the ghosts have ditched trying to kill him and made their own empire in platform land so he goes to take it over.

And there could be secret areas that you have to conquer to completely finish the game, like a hole in the ground could lead to an underground level or a cave.

GOT IT

The ghosts migrated to platform land, same as what I said before. Pacman goes to take them over, so he asks his science teacher to make him a dimension mixer so he can go there where he finds that they're developing weapons that they are planning to use against him. So he takes over their ghost empire using their weapons (because they're obviously no dots there that make the ghosts vulnerable(so that way I don't have to figure out how to change the ghosts(YES)))

Now I need some names.
Ideas:
Empire of the ghosts
Pacman and the ghost empire
The adventure of a yellow ball with a mouth that goes into another dimension to kill ghosts which are making weapons of mass destruction that they are planning on using to destroy his home realm.
Pacman goes platform
Pacform
Platman
OMG PAKMANN IZ LIEK ON APLATFAWM LOLOKL!!1

Any ideas?

That's already been done with several versions of pirated super mario bros games.
I actually have a copy of Super mario bros for the nes, only based on sonic!

You could just not have a story and just have it as a random game, I mean Tetris never had a story now did it?

I may be lazy but I'm not that lazy.

I don't mind Pacman and the dimension thingy, but the game isn't really about the dimension thing, more about the ghosts' terrorism plot.

IDEA: Instead of playing as pacman you as one of the ghosts, each of them having a different ability, (speed, higher jumps, able to go through certain walls, etc.) and you have to navigate through several 2D platform mazes, WHILE BEING CHASED BY A GIANT PACMAN ON STEROIDS!

That's an excellent idea Sparx. I think that there should then be levels where you can control the Pacman and you have to catch the ghosts.
