Indie Retro News: Blockman Gets
It wasn’t long ago now that here on Indie Retro News, we did multiple features of both the hit classic’s Pac-Man and Ms Pacman over to the Amiga by JOTD as two great Arcade conversions. Well here we are with another Pac-Man style of game, as thanks to Saberman and Per Ola Eriksson contacting us via Facebook, we have been told Jayenkai has released a new clone of that classic called ‘Blockman Gets – Amiga Edition’ developed in BlitzBasic. To coincide with this news, not only has Saberman done a gameplay video, but Per Ola Eriksson has done one as well!
This looks to be a good Arcade homage for those of you who remember the classic from 1982. As not only does it have all the dot chomping goodness you could want in a Pac-Man style of game, but unlike the hit classics with added ghosts, in this one you must help Blockman to eat as many pellets as he can up until he reaches his hunger-goal which helps him move onto the next level! So yes a very entertaining looking game for the Amiga and one I think you’ll be playing most of this evening.
