Metatarsal offers version 1.03 of " PacMan E ", excellent adaptation of the famous arcade game" Pac-Man "for the Nintendo DS.
I started this game early summer 2010, blasted at it for a week or so then left it pretty much untouched for a few months, spent another week or so on it and then didn't come back to finish the last bits off until now, January 2011. It has been a great project to work on for programming, pixel art, game design, problem solving and more skills and through it I've come a long way in improving myself. If I were to recode I'm sure I could do a lot of things better now but I am ready to shelf it and move on to bigger projects.
The 'sound effects' I took from the original arcade game, copyright for them belongs to Namco.
The music in the game is a song called 'Exhale' by Mr.Lou of Dewfall Productions, found at the site http://indiegamemusic.com/, which is a fantastic resource.
I made my graphics using MSPaint and Photoshop when I needed more zoom. I've found DSGM a really useful tool for prototyping pixel art, especially animated works also.
It's not perfect, and I know about some rare and hard to produce bugs (why I had to avoid saving the high score) but without a rewrite they aren't feasible to correct at this stage. In any case I hope you enjoy playing, the making of it was a blast.
