Pacman is a classic arcade game where a little yellow muncher guy tries to eat white dots while avoiding the monsters.
When you eat the larger white dots then you can eat the monsters for about 60 seconds before they become evil again.
This version of Pacman is both free and small in size and gives you direct access to the game right from your desktop.
Pacman is the best-selling coin-operated game in history. Forget Street Fighter 2 and Tetris. In the game's debut year alone, over 100, 000 Pacman machines were made and sold around the world.
Pacman was inspired by a pizza with a slice missing. Namco designer Tohru Iwatani went out for the evening with some friends and then dove for dinner. The rest is history.
Pacman has been licensed to more than 250 companies for over 400 products. There are Pac-Man air fresheners, cereal boxes, flip phones, costumes, record books, and even a hot rod.
In July of 1999, Florida resident and die-hard Pacman fan Billy Mitchell achieved the first perfect score in Pacman (3, 333, 360) after playing for six hours straight. He beat all 256 screens eating every dot, fruit, and ghost (all four ghosts were eaten with each power pellet) - using only one Pacman!
