Pac-Man Arcade Games

Many people donít realize that Pac-Man is the ultimate arcade game. The game is built on an old Japanese folk tale, and it was created by Toru Itwani, while licensed by Namco. 

The object of the game was simply to move through a maze, while gobbling the dots and avoiding ghosts. Pac-Man is such a success that it is still in the makings of having hundreds and even thousands of cult members. 

It was picked up for production in the US by Midway.

Pac-Man is a game that is for the player who is bored with the typical arcade games and also those who are bored with the space invading games. The game soon went on to strip ĎAsteroidsí as the greatest selling game of all time.

The player maneuvers the protagonist through a maze eating dots. You will proceed to the next level once you have gotten your image to eat all of the dots without getting eating itself. 

There are four ghosts which roam around the maze trying to catch Pac-man who is the character maneuvered by the player. The point of the ghost is that if Pac-Man is touched, he dies. 

The game ends when no lives remain.

If you were to look at the corners of your maze there are four power ups. These power-ups render Pac-man a short-timed ability to gobble up the ghosts.

Then once the ghost is eaten it will return to the pen where it will be revived. The regeneration time for the ghosts shortens as the game advances through the stages.

Even though you may think that the ghosts are moving in a random direction, basically you will find that they are completely predictable, but it does take time to find a pattern. 
This allows experienced players to devise precise patterns of movement that enables them to complete levels without being caught ever.

The game is so simple, but you will still be able to get that adrenaline rush from it. You will notice that a lot of people will become addicted to the game. It is actually one of the most played games of all times and it is also one of the most enjoyable game to play.
