    Gobble gobble

    He may be as old as the hills but Pac-Man still manages to entertain after all these years.

About The Game

Move Pac-Man through the maze, avoiding ghosts and eating all the Pac-Dots. Beware though, each of the ghosts behaves differently!

When Pac-Man chomps a Power Pellet, he becomes invincible, and is able to eat the blue ghosts. The more ghosts Pac-Man eats in a row, the higher the score. Don’t forget to eat the bonus fruit, too!

Released in 1980, Pac-Man is the most well-known video game in the world. In 2005, “Pac-Man” was acknowledged as the “Most Successful Coin-Operated Game in History”. Enjoy this masterpiece of gaming history today!
