Dungeon Quest is the newest game in Haste Arcade
A medieval take on Pac-Man with a few twists
The most common example we use to describe how the arcade works starts off with something like:
“you put a quarter in a Pac-Man machine…”
Problem is that up until now, we haven’t had Pac-Man in the arcade. Having said that, we’re excited to announce the release of the newest game in Haste Arcade, Dungeon Quest on March 13, 2023, at 10am EST! Given our common example, we felt like it was only appropriate to add a Pac-Man-themed game to the arcade, with a few extra twists to revamp this classic that you’re really going to enjoy!
If you’ve ever played PacMan, this game should feel very familiar aside from the medieval graphics.
Guide your character around the map collecting the coins, avoiding or killing the slimes, and capturing the treasure chest. The scoring has several bonuses built-in:
- Collect a coin = 1 point
- Collect a sword = 5 points
- Kill a slime with the same sword = 10 points per kill, increasing by 10 points
- Capture the treasure chest = 50 points per capture (chest keys spawn after you collect 30 coins, and 70 coins per level)
Once you collect all the coins on the map, you beat the level and advance. The speed of the slimes increases on each level making it more difficult the more levels you beat. But don’t worry, we’ve given you a secret weapon for when you’re in a really tight spot…
When you find yourself trapped, you can summon fireballs to kill any slimes in your vicinity (press the “V” key on desktop, or tap the fireball emblem on mobile). You only get two of these boosts per game so use them wisely!
We’re also excited to announce a collaboration with @mageta_art to create the arcade’s first third-party game collectible. The collectible is a pack that changes the background, power up, key + chest, and slimes into a psych ward, pill bottle, laptop, and an inmate.
The game collectibles won’t be immediately available upon launch, but we anticipate adding them to the Haste Marketplace in the very near future.
