Ms. Pac-Man

[Ms. Pac-Man on the Commodore 64, by Atarisoft]

Ms. Pac-Man remains one of the most popular classic arcade games, and even today it is common to see "Mortal Kombat III" and "Ms. Pac-Man" side-by-side in the local arcade. It inspired a group of people to spend some spare time trying to beat it--the Ms. Pac-Man Mystery.
