Depends on what console you were playing it on. The original Packman
home version was designed for the Atari 2600. They later produced
sequals like Mrs. Packman and Packman Jr. for the Atari 7800 series
consoles. As it happens they also released a new 2600 console, before
they went out of business, with slightly newer/updated versions of
their 2600 series games. One of those was of course Packman. Since
then there have been several clones and retro remakes of Packman
designed by a number of companies for every operating system and
console you can imagine. So the little yellow guy is very much a
classic that continues to get passed on from generation to generation.
