Storyline

Players guide a yellow, pie-shaped creature around a single maze, munching dots while avoiding four roaming ghosts. Four energizer dots are on the board, one in each corner. Eating one of these special dots will temporarily empower Pac-Man to turn the tables on the ghosts. Each time all the dots in a maze are eaten, play resumes with a fresh screen.

Trivia

The highest possible score in Pac-Man is 3,333,360 points. The first known person ever to achieve a perfect score was an American named Billy Mitchell on 3 July 1999. It took him six hours and he had to endure 256 levels. On the final level, and due to a programming limitation, there is only half of the maze, the right side of the screen contains garbage characters. Once the ultimate score is reached, the game locks up, and would require a restart. See more »

The nostalgia it burns!

Here is a game that everybody should know.

The 1980s Video Games started with a bang.

Despite a scar few years later with Atari Pac-Man and E.T. these are now cult.

Pac-Man is so simple.

You are a yellow circle munching pellets in a maze with ghosts.

There you Can get a pellets so you can eat the ghosts for a while.

No over the top CGI and huge VG bosses here.

Just a fun old game with no end.

The Pac-Man music includes of course the famous theme.

Try to find a place where they still might have arcade games.

And, eh have a dozens of coins.

10/10
