Coin-Op : Arcade : Ms. Pac-Man (1981, Midway)

General Information

Overview

Hugely popular follow up to the hit Pac-Man. Ms. Pac-Man still earns her keep in arcades today, and it is not unusual to see a Ms. Pac-Man sitting right next to state-of-art arcade games.

Gameplay is simple: control Ms. Pac with a joystick, chomping on dots in the maze. Avoid the ghosts, but you can turn the tables with a power pellet. If you see a fruit bouncing through the maze, grab it for extra points. You'll cycle through several mazes, and see new intermission screens.

Coin-Op Details

Probably the most popular and profitable coin-operated arcade game of all time. The sequel to Pac-Man was a instant success and continues to do well today. Bally Midway released the game in an upright cabinet, cocktail and cabaret (mini) cabinet.

All Ms. Pac-Man PCBs are Pac-Man PCBs with a daughter card necessary for the extra mazes and software. A Pac-Man game can be upgraded to a Ms. Pac-Man by installing this daughtercard.
