This is what happens when you mash together three classic arcade games

It’s called Pacapong and it’s more fun than you would think.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN you take three of the most iconic arcade games around and put them all in one game?

You would probably end up with something like Pacapong, a two-player game which takes Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Pong and mashes them together.

Controlling the Pong paddles with your keyboard, you launch Pac-Man into the maze and try to make it to the other site without running into ghosts.

If the player manages to catch Pac-Man when he reaches the other side or you run into a ghost, they get to serve. While all of this is happening, you’re battling space Invaders using the paddles themselves.

If this sounds confusing, don’t worry as it works better in practice.

The game was created as part of a developer game jam with the theme based around Pong. The only rule was not to build an exact duplicate of the original game, according to Engadget.

The only thing is it’s a two-player game (much like the source material) so if you’re on your own, chances are you won’t have as much fun.

You can download the game for Windows, Mac, and Linux on the developer’s site.
