5 Obscure Platformers You Probably Didn't Know Existed

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

I know that Pac-Man isn’t exactly an “obscure” entity in video games by any means but he’s definitely had his fair share of spin-offs that have left the confines of his pellet-packed mazes. One of those particular excursions is a 3D Platformer that was based off of the short-lived cartoon of the Japanese gaming icon, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures.

Hopping and bopping through vibrant backdrops of Pacopolis, players will be leaping and chomping through a myriad of ghosts and challenges with the use of special Power-Up pellets that will temporarily grant our titular hero special abilities that he can use against explicit obstacles that require their use. Taking on new forms like Chameleon Pac-Man who can use his long tongue to latch onto special poles, and Ice Pac-Man who can cool wildly hot terrain, the abilities muse some of its dynamics from the Super Mario Galaxy franchise solve some of its perilous missions much like that of a 3D Platformer.

The Ghostly Adventures will have collecting pellets, food, and special fruit that will give you access the special fruits that act as an object for Sir C to expand Pac-World with new areas for the hero to take on, the game is more than an easy going abstract of its peers, and definitely deserves a look.
