Pac-man is one of the maze arcade games developed and released by Namco in 1980. The name Pac-Man is for the international version, which has been modified from the “Puk man” session. The original is from Japan. Midway Games release this international version. The player is tasked with controlling Pac Man to eat all the dots in the closed mazes and try to avoid touching the ugly brown ghosts. Some flashing dots are considered energy boosts, causing the spirits to turn blue and allow Pac-Man to eat them all for bonus points.
The game exploded in 1979. The designer Toru Iwatani then recognized that it needed to change the game’s approach to be able to attract men and women to play together instead of the approach. Proximity warfare is classic, like other regular games. The game characters are made relatively attractive and have a colorful feel to attract younger teenagers. Puckman’s Japanese title comes from the different shapes of the name in the hockey game.
