    A lot of games have made a huge amount of success from the dismay and oftentimes sheer horror of a select group of people. Think how many World War II games are around. Yes, war is Hell. But there is another type: Big business. Which one is worse, I’ll leave up to you to decide. However one group seems to have more games made about it.

    Either way, the makers of the gorgeously bloody NaaC have turned the tables for their entry in a Retro Remakes competition. Chances are, if you’ve been around Acid-Play for even a short while you’ve played a remake from one of those competitions. This one is about on par, or slightly above, the rest of those. What this game features is fantastic graphics and surprisingly active game play.

    The idea is that… well, according to the game, a pink octopus walked into a pyramid and got itself attacked by fire which made it grow. Yep, that’s the story. Somehow, this attracted the interest of a big oil company who starts mining several island cities with Pac-Man on the end of a long tube. In the mines are monsters, some shaped like circles with feet, noses with wings or tied shoelaces with legs. If these touch the pipe, the Pac-Man/pipe retracts, but if the mouth end of the pipe touches the monster, it gets sucked in and travels to the oil company. Eventually you work your way through ten levels (including two bonus levels) to the island containing the giant pink octopus who you rescue by eating fire.

    It’s a crazy game, and believe me, the emphasis is not on the story. You’ll spend most of your time in the caves beneath cities with a giant tube sticking out of your butt. In these caves, along with the monsters are sporadically appearing bombs, which “kill” you if you eat them and a goblet which gives you bonus points if you eat it. On each level there is at least one “power pill,” while you can eat any monster at any time, these slow them down which gives you more time to collect pills to complete the level, or to travel back down your pipe and eat monsters.

    It is a remake and does suffer somewhat from the usual gamut of flaws a remake usually encounters, such as pretty average graphics and simplistic game play. However, these have been overcome in TuboPac by allowing you to choose your path to the boss and offering you multiple difficulty levels ranging from “Easist” to “Inferno,” there is replay value here, though not in abundance. Suitable for children, TuboPac is an enjoyable download.
