Gaming Through The Years – 1980

80’s gaming – Pac-Man

Gaming in the 1980’s brought us some iconic games in the form of Donkey Kong, Tetris and, of course, the Super Mario Bros! To kick start this awesome decade of gaming was the ghost-munching Pac-Man. Released in 1980 by game develop Namco, the idea of the game was to control Pac-Man through a maze, eating Pac-docs whilst also, when giving the chance, eat the enemies. Due to its popularity, game developers Namco decided to release a Mrs. Pac-Man version only two years later.

Being among the most famous arcade games of all time, Pac-Man is surely one of the most recognized gaming figures in history.
