Thanks to a collaboration between Namco Bandai, Microsoft Australia, and Australian digital studio, Soap Creative, the “World’s Biggest PAC-MAN” is here. It was created to help promote future PAC-MAN properties and from the stats, there’s a lot of love out there. Over 274 million dots have been eaten so far in this online game (as of this writing).
Players can also create their own maps that get added to a growing collection of thousands. You’ll see love messages, giant PAC-MAN shaped fields of dots, a cat shaped maze, and giant faces all linked together to provide an ever growing playground of close calls and endless eating. It could be Billy Mitchell’s worst nightmare – or greatest dream.
It’s also free to play. All you need is a computer, a browser, and a lot of time to help wear down your arrow keys. Or a good sense of humor with a dash of devious cunning when you unleash your creativity – as long as you can keep it clean.
