World's Largest Pac-Man/ Galaga
« on: June 03, 2019, 07:19:57 am »
So everyone probably knows about the Worlds Largest Pac-Man and Galaga giant screen game at Dave & Busters and other places like that (probably). Anyway, the version of Galaga on there seems to be the normal arcade Galaga. Two players alternating. That's actually dissapointing, since the Pac-Man is simultanious, sort of like Tengen's Ms. Pac-Man on NES.

My question is this- does anyone know if that is a special version of Pac-Man made just for this "World's Largest" thing? I think it would be cool to play at home, even if on a "normal" size TV or monitor.

Yes. Game play is a dead giveaway.

I know it's not the original Pac-Man, but is it on any other collections/ remixes/ whatever, or just this one cabinet?

Not that I know of.  Considering the cab is $11k  it might be a while before it's dumped.

Thanks. Well I guess Tengen NES Ms. Pac-Man is the closest for now to a co-operative Pac-Man.

Only played the first one, but the sequel boasts a co-op mode.

I don't think this is the same game. The championship versions are available on the PC, I think someone was looking at re skinning them a while back. There is a version of PAC man here in the UK that awards tickets after you clear the map and enter the centre box, not sure if this is the same as the worlds largest.

For simultaneous play, what would really be fanstastic is a MAME port of Pac-Man Battle Royale:

But this thread says that it's not coming any time soon.   :(

A few years ago, there was a thread about a crappy Xbox crappy version:

And this crazy dude wrote his own game modification and built a replica cabinet to go with it:
