Mashup video game: Zero-G Pac-Man

If Pac-Man and Asteroids were to somehow breed a hideous mutant love-child of a video game, it would probably look something like Pac-Man Physics.

If Pac-Man and Asteroids were to somehow breed a hideous mutant love-child of a video game, it would probably look something like Pac-Man Physics. A seriously deranged programmer designed this little applet, which throws Pac-Man, the ghosts, and the maze into a parallel dimension where gravity doesn't exist, and everything but the walls of the maze float freely. Pac-Man alone has the power of thrust, but if he gets within ten pixels of a ghost, he's dead. And as for the power pills? They no longer make the ghosts vulnerable, they just magnetize one random wall of the maze, slamming everything into it. It's almost impossible to play, but it must be tried. Download Pac-Man Physics here (PC only; sorry Mac/Penguin people).
