Pac-Man Cabinet
Pac-Man is one of the most popular games of all time.  Gameplay is very simple: the player controls Pac-Man, moving him around a maze eating dots while being chased by four ghosts: Blinky (red), Pinky (pink), Inky (light blue), and Clyde (orange).  Each level has four larger dots which when eaten turn all the ghosts blue, making them temporarily vulnerable to being eaten by Pac-Man.  When a level is cleared of all its dots the level ends and the next level begins.

The game’s creator, Toru Iwatani, has said that the shape of Pac-Man was inspired by a pizza with a missing slice.  The game was released by Namco in Japan, and distributed in North America by Midway.
