    After all these years, and despite it being such a well known and popular game, I don't recall ever actually playing Pac-Man (that wasn't a clone on a phone)....... Pac-mania, well that's another story, I should have nominated that if I had remembered that game earlier ......

    Anyway first attempt at the original pac-man..

    This game is much harder than it seems but really does get better the higher the levels just because of the speed.
    This game is patternable but I never learned any of them.

    I'm not a fan of the Pac games and I feel I will have to put in a huge effort on this game for the whole two weeks.

    @churgs likes pacman. I fear churgs on this game.
    This will do for starters. Bring it on 'Number 2'.

    Very nice candies ... how much per pound? ... Swedish Fish1.jpg ... and these ... jolly_ranchers.jpg

    We had Redskins (not the ones from Washington) in my time, fantales, red and green frogs ... and fruit tingles ... Fantales.png

    I visited a mini arcade with about 8 machines on George St in Sydney in the very early 80s, before Orbit 600 and Westworld opened, and there I was looking at these guys playing Galaxian and Crush Roller (yes can you believe it). I heard a strange but addictive police siren sound coming from the right corner of the mini arcade and there it was ... Pac-man ... a very fresh breath of air, as almost every game that came out for a few years was shoot the aliens and so many varieties of that theme ...

    The ghost colours were terrific, the concept of eating pills seemed great at the time, eating ghosts was terrific and the cute bonus fruits and items (I mean who can forget the cherry) ... the bonus cherry and bell reminded me of the slot machines! And what followed with all the other Pac-man games was great.

I began selling the harder to find stickers for 10 cents each and the "Kiss My Pac-Man" one for 20 cents. I was later called in to the Principal's office and reprimanded for selling these stickers. To this day, I don't think I did anything wrong - I just took advantage of a market opportunity!
    Trading in collectibles was common in all schools, just maybe your Principal was jealous and wanted your cards!

    I don't have anything of Pac-man from those days, other than the memory of the game eating my coins, but I do have today, Inky sitting on my gaming desktop giving me the thumbs up ... good to see he's on my side for a change!

    Anyone else have a tragic Pac-man story?
