For my internet archive game I chose to do pac-man because I feel as though that game is something that many people are familiar with, but don’t really know the background on it. When researching pac-man I learned about what it means when the ghosts turn blue. i knew that when they are colored it means that they can kill you but I didn’t know that when you get to the energizer balls the ghosts turn blue so you can try to eat them and try to not get yourself killed. There is a lot about Pac-Man that I didn’t know and that I learned doing this assignment.
Pac-Man was originally called Puck-man, which originated from a Japanese name. In the beginning when it was first created the snack pellets were originally cookies before it changed. Also, the names of the ghost both had Japanese and English names. In Japanese it is fickle, chaser, ambusher, and stupid. In english it is inky, blinky, pinky, and clyde. It was also created as a cute game to include good and bad characters. Each of the ghosts is responsible for a different behavior. It also has a Guinness World record of “The Most Successful Coin-Operated Game.”
Also based on Plan, Practice, and Improvise I would classify this game as something where you need to plan and practice in order to get it right. In order to not die you need to figure out which way you would want to go so you can avoid the ghosts. It also takes practice to be able to get all the coins, while avoiding the ghosts and not dying.
