pacman, the 21st c. edition

While reading Mother Jones today, I found this new version of pacman. The makers have revamped pacman and put it in an enviromentally-friendly mood. The graphics aren't that great, but the intro is pretty nifty. Retitled, "Packaging Man" this new pacman has very few differences from the original.

(Eep, he's gonna eat ya!)

The story line of the game: evil corporations are destroying are Southern United States forests for their non-sustainable packaging. But have no fear Packaging Man is here to take down the evil corporations (who they specifically name as McDonald's, Wal-Mart and Taco Bell, among others). Packaging Man looks like your local UPS driver, but in green. He is recharged and able to "destroy"/eat the corporations when he eats the recycle symbols. I really suck at pacman, always have, so I was no contender for the game, but it was an interesting one to try out. At the end of the game, you can click on "take action" where the game leads you to a pre-written message you can attach your name to that is sent to the major packaging and enviroment offenders. It's interesting concept and one that seems to be catching on lately.
