This is the original Ms. Pacman game. The sides and front of the game have been touched up. There may be some fading in the artwork as it is original and over 30 years old. You can choose either the speed up version or the original speed. You can get it in an original cabinet that has the sides and front painted blue for $200 less.
Ms. Pac-Man was one of the very first spin-off games, but it didn’t start life as a sequel to Pac-Man. It was originally called Crazy Otto as an elaborate enhancement of the Pac-Man maze created by a small company called General Computer Corporation, who pitched it to Bally / Midway, who bought and changed the programming into Ms. Pac-Man. This did not go unnoticed by Namco, owners of the Pac-Man brand, and in an effort to appease them, Bally turned over the rights for Ms. Pac-Man to Namco, but this was end of the Namco License for Bally who had also developed other unauthorized titles such as Pac-Man Plus, Baby Pac-Man, Jr. Pac-Man, and others. Ms. Pac-Man retains its popularity today, and the titular character was selected as the spokesperson for the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organization in 2000. Unlike most cabinets of the era, Ms. Pac-Man is screen painted, not a decal.
