Not much description needed here, Pac-Man was and still is among the most popular games ever. Pac-Man’s goal is simple: devour all of the pellets in each maze while avoiding the enemy ghosts: Pinky, Blinky, Inky and Clyde. Pac-Man went on to spawn nine sequels include Ms. Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man, Jr. Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man (a video/pinball hybrid), among others. New games are still being released today featuring the game’s characters for home consoles.
Among its other accomplishments, the game had its own animated TV show, its own song, “Pac-Man Fever” and a ton of memorabilia.
It was only recently that someone was able to achieve the perfect score on Pac-Man. In 1999, Billy Mitchell reached a score of 3,333,360 points, the highest score possible on the game, before the game crashes.
