History of The PacMan game

One day Iwatani went to the restaurant and ordered pizza. The moment pizza came and Iwatani looked at it, the idea for the PAC-MAN shape was generated. If you look at the PAC-MAN you will find that PAC-MAN has two parts that resemble the two slices of Pizza. In Japanese it is known as ” paku-paku taberu”. In the game, there will be a PAC-MAN which will fight with monsters or ghosts with a motive to eat 240 dots.  Designed by Toru Iwatani in Japan with a motive to design something unique, a kind of video game that is not yet on the market. With this vision, he started working on making a video game that will break all stereotypes and will be for both men and women.

Pacman 30th anniversary How to Win

Long into the race, PAC-MAN isn’t that easy to play. To win the game you will have to approach with full planning and a competitive mindset. Here are some simple steps to win the game- 

Step-1: keep your eye on your opponent 

The very first rule to play and win PAC-MAN is to keep a watch on your opponent especially on the Blinky and Pinky (fastest and skilled). As the game has only four ghosts, run with planning and do not take the wrong turn as the ghost might catch you. 

Step 2: Realize that you are  smarter than the game

Thanks to the artificial intelligence of the PAC-MAN, the ghost can appear anywhere anytime. One time they might appear as if they are chasing you and the other minute you’ll find them on totally different paths. Try to be in areas having multiple routes and turn-offs. In case it seems that you are going to be caught trying to move in the direction in which the ghost is moving. 

Step-3: Concentrate on earning more points

Try to collect all possible numbers of fruits that come on your path along with keeping an eye on the ghost. On destroying each ghost you get a point. On destroying all the ghosts on one power-up you can earn 200 to 3000 points. 

Step-4: Beware of the eyes

All the ghosts you eat or destroy on power-up will become a pair of eyes that can be found in the center. Try not to get caught by them. 

Step-5: learn how the ghost thinks

There is no randomness in the movement of the ghost. Whether they come from behind or from the front their main motive is to catch you. So! Try to understand their strategy and keep yourself away. 

There are lots of games launched every year but none survive for such a long period as PAC-MAN.
