What would happen if Pac-Man got fatter while he ate? At some point he’d go big, he’d get stuck in the maze, right? How would you get unstuck? In Pig Eat Ball you get to barf your way back down to size!
Action puzzler Pig Eat Ball is coming to PS4 Spring 2018 and Nathan Fouts from Mommy’s Best Games has shed some light on what we can expect..
“There are hundreds of action-puzzle levels in Pig Eat Ball. And in each one you simply need to eat all the balls in the level to win. But things get tricky here! As you eat, you’ll get fatter. And sometimes you’ll need to barf and shrink back down to size to fit through certain areas. But you’ll still need eat all the balls – even those barf-covered ones!
Growing fat, getting stuck, and barfing is the first twist in the game. But I’ve worked with my small team for four years to pack in tons of interesting gameplay. I love the feeling of getting to a new world in a game and seeing ALL NEW things. New art! New enemies and NPCs to interact with! In Pig Eat Ball there are five GIANT worlds like this and each one is packed with new fun things to do.
The challenge in the game is moderate. This is not the Dark Souls of anything (okay, maybe of Pac-Man?) What keeps the game interesting keep playing is the heaps of hand-crafted levels, and the balance between exploration and chaotic action.
Besides fighting cool monsters, I love games with exciting secrets. I want something cool to find! Not just basic collectables. So in Pig Eat Ball we have “disguises”. In the story, your character “Bow” is incognito, entering into a special contest. She has to wear a disguise the whole time. These disguises are not only fun because they change your appearance, they also alter your gameplay!
Each disguise has at least one Pro and one Con. For instance, the Robot Head disguise has a Pro of “ball magnetism” (which is great!) but a Con of lowering your ball suction. When you find a new disguise hidden in an over-world, it’s a big treasure!”
Nathan elaborates more here on what to expect, but yeah we’re sold on this one. More news as we get it!
