If you haven't noticed from Google's homepage, or from our post today
, it is Pac-Man's 30th birthday. Strange that he hasn't seemed to age a day. You would figure his yellow complexion would wane by now. In celebration of his birthday, Namco Bandai conducted a sort of Jay Leno Street Walking episode where they put fans to the test of their knowledge on Pac-Man
. I can understand the confusion in some of their responses, but you really can't guess just a few of the ghosts' colors? Watch the video below for some abysmal answers.
Beside the parody of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Namco is also celebrating Pac-Man's birthday by putting out a slew of sales and deals. In addition to the iPhone/iPad/Android sales that you can catch after the jump, Pool Pro Online 3
for the PC was just launched with the iPhone's Pac-Match Party
to follow soon after. Another PC title, Puzzle Quest 2
, will be releasing this summer. I had fun with it at PAX East
, but more information should be released at this year's upcoming E3.
Finally, the last announcement from Namco is of a sweepstakes to win a Pac-Man themed smart car in celebration of his 30th Birthday. Visit the site
and fill out the entry form from May 21st to August 20th for a chance to win.
