Pickdun Is Pac-Man Meets A First Person Dungeon RPG

By Spencer . May 4, 2011 . 10:28am

If you ever wondered what Pac-Man would look like in first person… and as a dungeon RPG take a look at this video of Pickdun.



This dot eater action game (that’s the actual genre!) is made by Intense, the same developer behind the steamy point and find game Sacrifice of the Forbidden Room: Miki – High Tension Nite – for PSP. Carlton, the knightly protagonist, must run over arrows, which makes dots appear. Grab the dots and rescue the people with "HELP!" bubbles over their heads and you win a story scene.


While there are enemies to fight, your greatest adversary in Pickdun is time. Pickdun’s 40+ stages are designed for speedruns. If you have a Japan region Nintendo DSi you can get Pickdun for 200 DSiWare points ($2).

    Thats how smooth Wizardry PS3 and Etrian Odyssey should have been in terms of navigating

    Kind of unrelated, but I wouldn’t mind seeing a Forsaken or Descent or some other kind of maze navigator for the 3DS. Even if it would make me barf in fifteen seconds.

  • Code

    hm! Kind of slick! Kind of like the concept, although I’m curious how it’ll play out.

  • The music is nice, too. It actually reminds me of the wizard game in Game Center CX 2.

  • Did the title of this game remind anyone of Caldun at first? I thought it was related for a second there.

    • Zero_Destiny

      Cladun = Classic + Dungeon. Aka Classic Dungeon Crawler game. Pickdun = ? (Maybe Pick Like pick up Arrows?) + Dungeon. That’s my line of thinking. ^_^

    This looks like it’ll be fun.

  • Pro_from_Dover

    I… would really like to play this! Fun, fast, and cute!

  • Interesting gameplay, but I have a feeling I would have difficulty looking at the other screen because I’ll be so focused on the map on the bottom. :X

    • Barrylocke89

      yeah, just like in SMT: Strange Journey, and Etrian Odyssey.

      But it looks cool for 2 bucks.

  • In case you thought it was easier to play Strange Journey watching the map screen…haha

  • I’m under the impression one wrong move in this game and it’s gonna be like that Regigigas puzzle in Pokemon. >_<

    Regardless, this 1st-person dungeon RPG is fast-paced, and I like it.

  • Manonam

    This does not look good, but I am biased toward 1st person dungeon crawlers.

  • should’nt the correct term for the genre be “dots eater action game?”

  • PrinceHeir

    the music is soo jazzy :)

  • fullmildredpanic
