LEGO INTRODUCES PACMAN ARCADE
Although the 1980s aren’t known for their stylish fashion or gorgeous hairstyles, it has given us so many awesome things.
From great music, think Tiffany, Pet Shop Boys, Bon Jovi and Madonna, to gaming devices like Nintendo and games like Donkey Kong and Pac-Man.
The latter is about to make a massive comeback as Lego is about to release a Pac-Man arcade set consisting of 2,561 pieces.
On its website, Lego said the set is based on a real 1980s arcade game cabinet and comes complete with a light brick to illuminate the coin slot.
Although the Lego set doesn’t have the ability to function like a gaming system, Lego says it’s “loaded with retro game details you’ll want to devour”.
CNN reports that “Pac-Man” was launched in Tokyo in 1980 and went on to become the most successful arcade game of all time. Players control Pac-Man, a yellow, cheese-shaped character who is tasked with eating every small dot inside a maze while at the same time avoiding four ghosts.
“Pac-Man” has cemented itself in the world of gaming history. So much so that it was among the titles added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2012.
