Happy B-Day Pac-Man


How many times did Pac-Man die today and how many ghosts did he eat? Well, hopefully he ate more of Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde than he died. Afterall, it is the P-Mans 30th birthday.

If you didn’t already hear, Google changed its homepage logo into a fully playable version of the game. People all over the world were playing Pac-Man when they opened their browser. Users visiting the world’s most popular website could play the game online for the game’s 30th anniversary.

 

 

 

Pac-Man was one of the most famous arcade games of all time. Pac-man was developed by Namco and was distributed in the U.S. by Midway on May 22, 1980. The game was a pop culture icon that spawned an animated television series and the top-ten hit single “Pac-man Fever” by Buckner & Garcia. That single peak at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982.

 

VH1 ranked the single at #98 on their list of 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 1980s.

Over the years there were several Pac-man spin-offs, including Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man Plus, Jr. Pac-Man, Baby Pac-Man, Professor Pac-Man, Pac-Man Vs. and Pac-Man Championship edition.

 

Pac-man has the highest brand awareness – 94 percent – of any video game character among American consumers, according to the Davie-Brown Index. Pac-man is only one of three games displayed in the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. The others are Pong and Dragon’s Lair.
