Pac-Man a series of video games produced by Namco. Beginning with the first game, Pac-Man, most games feature the player guiding a character through a maze collecting dots and avoiding ghosts. Some later games broke out of this genre, incorporating platforming and other elements into gameplay.
Pac-Man also makes numerous cameos throughout Namco Bandai's Tales series, such as being an ice sculpture in Tales of Symphonia, and being on Jade Curtiss' belt in Tales of the Abyss as well as others.
Pac-Man was made into a similar game called Pak-Rat on one of the episodes of iCarly. Players controlled a rat instead of Pac-Man.
For the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man, Google featured a playable Doodle Pac-Man game. The letters of "Google" formed the maze. The I'm Feeling Lucky button was replaced by an Insert Coin button, which allowed for one- or two-player gaming. In the two-player mode, Ms. Pac-Man appears simultaneously with Pac-Man.
