Pac-Man is a game ported from the arcade game of the same name to the Atari 2600 platform. It was first launched on the arcade by Namco in 1980, and later on the Atari 2600 version by Atari in mid-March 1982.
The earliest stage name of Pac-Man is Pakkuman, which is derived from the pronunciation of “パクパク食べる”, paku-paku taberu. Paku-paku means the movement and sound of the mouth opening and closing, and it portrays the life attitude of “I eat, therefore I am”.

Pac-Man is a classic arcade game in the history of video games. It was designed by Toru Iwatani of Namco and released by Midway Games in 1980. Pac-Man is considered to be one of the most classic arcade games in the 1980s. The image of the protagonist of the game is even used as a symbol of popular culture or a representative image of this industry. Its developer Namco also used this image as its mascot and company logo, and it has been used today.
The background of the game is mainly black. In the picture, the six letters of “Google” form a corridor-like maze picture. Four ghost face symbols of red, yellow, blue, and green shuttle through the maze, seeming to be looking for a half-open and half-closed yellow circle symbol. When the reporter pressed the azimuth key on the keyboard, he found that the yellow circle symbol could walk and swallow the small soybeans on the path of the maze, but he would be eaten when he encountered the ghost face symbol.
