Bitdude is a virtual reality arcade game. It commemorates the 1980’s arcade game everyone knows and loves: Pac-Man! But things are not exactly what you are thinking.
This game is like Pac-Man though with various differences. The game is set in a 3D environment and played from a first-person perspective. Since this is a VR game, it is played with a virtual reality headset.
Bitdude is the classic story of our favorite little dot-chomper. Sure, eating dots and fruit to get more points seemed harmless. But did you ever stop to think about their lives?
You play as a “bit” (one of the dots from the game) and you need to watch out for Chompman. He is like Pac-Man… But here is the twist: He is the bad guy. And he is hungry! So you play as a dot and you need to survive, avoid being eaten by Pac-Man (Chompman). I am sure you already think this game sounds interesting. And yes, it certainly is!
Your objective is to guide your fellow bits (the other dots) to safety. You can also eat the fruit before Chompman gets a chance. By rescuing fellow bits and eating fruit is how you get high scores in this game.
