Pac-man

1980

Namco

The worlds most popular videogame

A yellow, pie-shaped character named Pac-Man runs along inside a maze, eating dots as it avoids four ghosts. Each ghost has its own unique personality and gobbling one of the four super dots makes Pac-Man invincible to the ghosts for a given period of time. Each maze has its own unique bonus fruit or object with bonus points increasing as the game progresses.

When Bally Midway licensed the game in North America, they changed the name to "Pac-Man" to avoid the possibility of vandalism turning the name into something vulgar.

Description

Gobble, gobble, gulp! Who's munching Power Pellets? Who's zipping around the maze at top speed, chomping up ghosts and scoring big points? It's Pac-Man, the world's hungriest character! Devour a fruit treat and get a big bonus score. But if you're caught by the little haunters, you're ghostflakes! Use the warp tunnel for a quick escape. Hours of ghost-chomping action!

How to Play

The purpose of the game is to eat all the Pac-Dots from each maze while avoiding the attacks of four ghosts. When all the Pac-Dots are eaten up, Pac-Man can proceed to the next round.

Simply push the joystick in the direction you want Pac-Man to move. If you hold the joystick in a direction that is blocked by a wall, Pac-Man will continue to move in the direction he is going until he reaches an opening where he can turn that direction. Use this to turn corners as soon as you reach them
