PAC-MAN: A Legend. An Icon.

Today marks the 30th anniversary release of PAC-MAN computer game. It is universally considered as a legend and an icon of video-computer games. 


PAC-MAN was developed by Namco and became a popular arcade game on 1980s. It was primarily developed by a young Namco employee Tōru Iwatani, over a year, beginning in April 1979. The original title was pronounced pakku-man and was inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeic phrase paku-paku taberu, where paku-paku describes (the sound of) the mouth movement when widely opened and then closed in succession.


PAC-MAN has been awarded by Guinnes World Records as THE MOST SUCCESFUL COIN-OPERATED GAME and more.

Nintendo, Sony PS3 and Xbox creators and players should pay tribute to PAC-MAN arcade game, the Michael Jackson of virtual gaming.
