World’s Biggest PAC-MAN Game Announced at MIX11 Conference

Microsoft announced The World’s Biggest Pac-Man game at the MIX11 conference as a HTML5 demonstration — developed in Australia through the power of Internet Explorer 9, but nostalgia has fueled more than 118,000 plays with gamers eating more than 11 million dots.


The original PAC-MAN had 240 pac-dots, four power pellets and 255 mazes. Thirty-one years on, NAMCO BANDI and Microsoft are taking this legacy to new heights. PAC-MAN has millions of fans all around the world and the world’s biggest PAC-MAN allows them to create and play their own mazes and those submitted by fans.

Adding a new layer to the classic, the website allows users to build and submit custom Pac-Man levels in a shared community that has inspired some interesting and fun designs. Over 1000 mazes have been submitted already.

, this megaboard is using HTML5 Canvas which takes advantage of IE9’s built-in hardware acceleration to deliver a slick web experience. “The project team has been working tirelessly on this game for weeks, but it’s been such an exciting project and we’re delighted with the result. Although we’ll be glad when we don’t have to listen to the PAC-MAN sound FX every day” said Ashley Ringrose at Soap Creative.
