Infogrames Hits The Stores With 3 Classic Arcade Titles

by Rainier on Feb. 22, 2002 @ 6:06 p.m. PST

Three of Namco’s most popular characters from the golden age of the arcades are on sale now. The three games, entitled MS. PAC-MAN Quest for the Golden Maze, DIG DUG Deeper and COMBAT have been developed for Infogrames by Creature Labs, Ltd. in the UK and will be the first games starring this dynamic team made exclusively for Win95/8/ME-based PCs. COMBAT has been developed for Win98/ME.
  • MS. PAC-MAN Quest for the Golden Maze. Ms. Pac-Man is again on the run from the pesky ghosts and must use her wits to survive. Experts and newcomers alike will be challenged to help Ms. Pac-Man get the highest possible score while attempting to collect special bonus fruits that will unlock the coveted Golden Maze. Innovative features will increase the level of interactivity and replay value while retaining the elements that made MS. PAC-MAN one the top selling arcade games machine ever.
  • DIG DUG Deeper sees our hero, Dig Dug, return to his old underground territories in search of precious gems. But, as in the arcade original, he is not alone. The Pookas and Fygars are there to stop him. Armed with a drill and extermination gear, Dig Dug drills his way into the right spots while avoiding his enemies, dropping boulders on them, or destroying them with his extermination pack.
  • COMBAT is the modern update to one of the best "old school" Atari titles of all time. Based on the mid-70's Atari arcade game Tank, Combat allows turret jockeys to go head to head in a battle of simple shoot or be shot in 23rd century tank-like vehicles. Bounce over crate-pocked terrain, joust and maneuver in order to get a clean shot at your foe without taking an armour piercing round yourself.

These simple to pick up and play titles have endless action-packed levels and deliver a satisfying game experience every time. Sit back and enjoy the good old times!
