Pac-man's Redesign (Facebook Survey)

Rate this Entry

Back in 2010, during Pac-man's 30th Anniversary, we got a glimpse at what is Namco's attempt at Pac-man's redesign. Before this survey, Type A was used as the basis of the redesign, in which it is seen in the Pac-man CG animation trailer and Pac-man Party for the Wii. However, now Namco wants the fans help! You vote through Facebook, by the way.

So what do I like? Honestly, I love all these redesigns. Perhaps A a little less, but only because I seen it a tad more often. However, A manages to make the ghosts a bit scarier with their yellow sclera. I love how B hearkens back to the old days with a classic-styled Pac-man, and I do appreciate that they kept the ghosts' redesigns, because this is something I love about the new redesigns. C is lovely for its cartoony quality with an edgy style, and would fit best in a cartoon. For D, I just love how original it looks, and how menacing the ghosts look, although I fear that they will lean too much on the villainy side.

I do love to see how Clyde looks like in the varying styles, though... (If you don't know how Clyde is like, he is basically the biggest and silly-looking one)

So Bulbagardeners, which is the redesign for you?

Thanks for reading.

    Oh... Just like you I'm torn between C & D, but then again, I'm not that big a fan of Pac-man, so whichever one they go for will satisfy me when I don't play any of the games. How long has it been since I played Pac-man, anyway?

    Never mind; made my mind up. D is better, if only because the ghosts look really menacing in there, and Pac-man doesn't look like their friend. Seriously, in all the others, it's as if they are an army behind Pac-man.

    I actually like B the most, by far. It feels like a good mix between stylisation and old-school Pac-Man, for me. I do appreciate them all, though.

    C looks like something they would use for a ShiftyLook comic. I like it! I don't mind his 3DCG design, though - it's a nice leap to 3D!

    I like C's art style the most, but I voted D because everyone except the red ghost looks better there.

    I like the Pacman in C but the ghosts in B.
