Pacxon- Great Classic Arcade Mashup

Someone decided to take two classic arcade games and mash them together to come up with a nice hybrid concept.

The game is called Pacxon though it has nothing to do with Zaxxon, but rather it is the combination of the characters and powerups of Pacman with the gameplay of Qix, and what you end up with is a lot of unpredictable fun.

I loved Qix as a kid(which really shows my geek age there), and I think the underlying play concept still works, and it is refreshing to play this kind of game again after the flood of tetris/bust-a-move clones out there.

I've been having quite a bit of mindless fun playing this afternoon. In fact, I had trouble completing this entry because I was playing it a little too much. Sorry about that.

Damn! And I thought that I was the only kid that liked Qix. Uncanny...

Who doesn't like Qix... it is solid gameplay every time!
