A "Pac-man" style game with Pac-Man and Pocket Monster (Pok'n) characters. Player 1 controls Puckman and Player 2 controls Pikachu's head. Trying to catch you are the Ghost Monsters from the Pac-man games along with some Pocket Monsters. Get the 'power fruit' and you can eat them instead. When you complete a level, you are shown a digitized photograph of an Asian woman for some reason.

The game's creators probably did not get permission from Namco or Nintendo to use the characters, since there are no copyright notices indicating otherwise. While 'Pockimon' is a misspelling of 'Pokemon', "Puckman" is "Pac-Man"'s original name in Japan.

Most of the sound effects and music were taken from "Ms. Pac-Man".
