Pacman – Classic Arcade – Old School Fun
Pacman was originally developed by Namco and first released in Japan on May 22, 1980. It was licensed and distributed in the USA by Midway and released in October 1980.
When Pac-Man was released, the most popular arcade video games were space shooters, in particular Space Invaders and Asteroids. The most visible minority were sports games that were mostly derivatives of Pong. Pac-Man succeeded by creating a new genre and appealing to both genders. Pac-Man is often credited with being a landmark in video game history, and is among the most famous arcade games of all time. It is also one of the highest-grossing video games of all time,having generated more than $2.5 billion in quarters by the 1990s.
Midway Manufacturing Co., the Pac-Man maker, released 124 different machines in our database under this trade name, starting in 1959.
Other machines made by Midway Manufacturing Co. during the time period Pac-Man was produced include Space Encounters, Space Invaders II, Extra Bases, Space Zap, Space Invaders Deluxe, 18 Wheeler, Submarine, Phantom II, 4 Player Bowling Alley, and Super Galaxians.

HOW DOES THIS GAME WORK?
Pacman, Pacman Jr and Ms. Pacman play is quite similar. Simply score as many points as you can eating the small dots all around the maze. You use your joystick to manuevar around the maze gobbling up the small dots. 10 points per dot (240 of them). Big points come when you eat 1 of the 4 Big flashing dots called Energizers worth 50 points located in each corner of the maze. You can gather a possible 14,600 points for each level, and if can gobble up a few fruits you add to the level. The first fruit, the cherry, gives a small bonus of 100 points, progressing to higher levels like the Key level you can receive as high as 5000 point per fruit eaten.
Once you eat an energizer, all the monsters in the maze turn blue and run away from you. At this point you can eat the monsters for points effectively doubling the points from 200 to 1600 per monster you eat. The monsters will only stay blue for a limited time, or until you eat them all. Once you eat a monster it’s eyes are the only thing left until they return to the monster bull pin, and the monster regenerates back, comes out of the monster bull pin, and is on the move again though the maze.
It is fairly easy to eat all the monsters during the limited time of the Energizer phase, however the more mazes you clear, the shorter the Energizer phase is. Since the movement is so fast, its a good thing that fruits are worth more points because the monsters start getting so fast that you almost can’t even see them turning blue, and even later they do not even reverse at all.
