PAC-MAN Story

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
The commemorative, first introduction of Bandai Namco Games' popular character, Pac-Man. With its simple rules, intuitive controls, and cute characters, PAC-MAN took, not only Japan, but the whole world by storm.
1980
Ms. PAC-MAN
Ms. PAC-MAN was born in the United States, featuring a female Pac-Man with a ribbon on top. The game system is the same as PAC-MAN, and comes with added features, such as an alternating maze design system with 2 warp tunnels.
1981
SUPER PAC-MAN
SUPER PAC-MAN is born in Japan as the next PAC-MAN game. Instead of eating Pac-Dots, Pac-Man moved through the maze to munch on various fruits, while avoiding the ghosts. Consuming a Super Power Pellet transformed Pac-Man into the invincible, Super Pac-Man. The game is also the first to feature the series cameo bonus stage.
1982
PAC & PAL
The game is played by eating all the fruits on the stage, while avoiding the ghosts. The game introduces a new character, "Mil." The playful Mil moves around the screen to move the fruits away from Pac-Man. The game is unique in that it doesn't have any Power Pellets. In turn, Pac-Man can retaliate by eating special powerup items such as the Boss Galaxian and Rally X icons.
1983
PAC-LAND
The game marks the series first side-scrolling action platformer where Pac-Man goes on a journey to help a lost fairy get back to Fairyland, while avoiding enemy ghosts and obstacles. The cute and lively animations brought life to the characters, bringing about a new frontier to the PAC-MAN series with a hint of hidden secrets strewn throughout the rounds. The game's tagline in Japanese was "wonders around every corner."
1984
PAC-MANIA
The game reintroduces the basic mechanics that made the first PAC-MAN great - moving around a maze eating Pac-Dots while avoiding the ghosts. What takes the game apart is that the characters and the mazes are displayed in 3D. This introduced new game features such as Pac-Man being able to jump over the ghosts instead of simply running from them. With new types of ghosts and a variety of stages, the game thrilled players throughout the world.
1987
A unique action game
A unique action game where the player doesn't directly control Pac-Man. Instead, the player uses items such as a slingshot and Power Pellets to influence Pac-Man to clear various stages. Each stage holds a number of puzzle elements that requires planned use of various gimmicks. Watch as Pac-Man goes through his various mood spurts ranging from being happy to being angry as he clears the stages.
1994
PAC-PANIC
The very first puzzle game to enter the PAC-MAN series. The game's objective is to prevent the falling blocks from stacking to the top of the screen by placing them in rows for them to disappear. Ghosts also fall from the top, which can't be removed without the help of Pac-Man who can gobble the ghosts getting in the way.
1994
PAC-IN-TIME
The Ghost Witch (Abylusnetter in Japanese) casts a spell on Pac-Man sending him back in time.
