Geocache Description:

The monsters are on the loose so Pac-Man is off hiding. Find him and the smiley is yours. Note that he is not at the listed coordinates but has run less than two miles away.


Pac-Man was an arcade game developed by Namco and licensed for distribution in the United States by Midway, first released in Japan on May 22, 1980. Pac-Man is considered one of the classics of the medium, virtually synonymous with video games, and an icon of 1980s popular culture. Upon its release, the game—and, subsequently, Ms. Pac-Man and other sequels—became a social phenomenon that sold a bevy of merchandise and also inspired, among other things, an animated television series and a top-ten hit single.


When Pac-Man was released, the most popular arcade video games were space shooters, in particular Space Invaders and Asteroids. The most visible minority were sports games that were mostly derivatives of Pong. Pac-Man succeeded by creating a new genre and appealing to both genders. Pac-Man is often credited with being a landmark in video game history, and is among the most famous arcade games of all time. Pac-Man has the highest brand awareness of any video game character among American consumers, recognized by 94 percent of them.
