PAC-MAN is 1980 built arcade game which was licensed for distribution in the US by Midway. Microsoft & Internet Explorer 9 joined hands with NAMCO BANDAI in order to create World’s biggest PAC-MAN. Pacman is that much famous that on its 30th annivesary Google changed the Google logo and on its homepage fully playable version was for that weekend. So as to keep that 80s flame alive, its been designed based on IE9s hardware acceleration and HTML5 support. At MIX11 WorldsBiggestPacMan.com was launched and in its first week 242 millions PAC-DOTS were eaten, 2.2 million mazes were played and over 10 thousand new mazes were created. With Internet Explorer 9 users can easily pin the site to their taskbar and can have one-click access to the game in addition to quick-view of their personal stats.
And on 18th of this month game crossed 1 Billion PAC-DOTS and with the same spirit now target is to touch the line of two billion.
