Pac-Man is a popular Namco maze-chase game, and is the debut game in the Pac-Man series. It features the titular character Pac-Man (a yellow mouth shaped character, similar to a pizza with a missing slice).

Known as Classic NES Series: Pac-Man, Nintendo would publish a port of the game, for Game Boy Advance.


Pac-Man must eat all the dots in the map while avoiding the ghosts Blinky (red), Pinky (pink), Inky (cyan) and Clyde (orange). Special larger dots known as Power Pellets will (upon being eaten by Pac-Man) scare away the ghosts, turning them blue and allowing Pac-Man to eat them and gain more points. Once all the dots are eaten, a new level will load, and the aim is simply to obtain the highest score.
