Pacman is the most popular arcade game in history. By the end of the 1990’s it had generated $2,500,000,000 dollars one quarter at a time. It has the highest brand awareness of any video game with 94% of Americans recognizing the character. Pacman can be played through 255 screens if you are good enough and have the patience.
Approximate 6 years ago as of this writing I got a Pacman machine. An original cabinet with Clay’s multi-pac daughter board system.
It worked fine for 3 or so years and suddenly without warning gave up the ghost.
This post gives a brief chronicle of the process I went through to restore it to working condition.
