A cooperative maze game introducing the piecepack matchsticks.

The Story So Far

Once upon a time, four ghosts lived peacefully in a cozy house at the center of a maze powered by four magical coins. Every day, they cultivated the corridors of their maze with energy cubes, a pleasant-tasting geometric fungus that harmonized with each ghost’s ectoplasmic signature. But one dark night, while the ghosts cuddled together in their little ghost house, a treacherous disk-shaped creature known as Piecepackman invaded the maze. Now he’s tearing the place apart, indiscriminately eating their energy cubes and devouring their power coins in frenzied ghost-eating rampages. Worst of all, he can regenerate himself with his stock of extra lives. But ghosts know a thing or two about returning from the dead. And now it’s time to fight back...

Object of the Game

Players cooperate as the ghosts with the objective to take all of Piecepackman’s lives, or end the game with more Energy Cubes than Piecepackman.

Meanwhile, Piecepackman is trying to collect all the Power Coins and Energy Cubes on the board and stay alive until the board is cleared.
