This is arcade classic Pac-Man as you’ve never seen it before: played out across not one maze, but (at the time of writing) 3,159 mazes, all linked together.
The World’s Biggest Pac-Man was designed to show off Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9, and allows users to design and upload their own Pac-Man levels to a rapidly expanding patchwork quilt of mazes. You can log in by linking the page to your Facebook account, or just play for fun. Every maze features an exit point on each of its four sides, leading to the neighbouring maze.
At least 90% of these user-created maps are obviously rubbish, with people incorporating messages such as ‘LAWL OMG’ or ‘STEVE LUVZ DUBSTEP’ into their maze. Still, the scale is certainly novel, at least for the first eight minutes, by which time it becomes a bit boring to play.
Now, did I hear someone say “PAC-MAN MMORPG!!!“?
