20th anniversary Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga machine.

Pac-Man Anniversary Machines refer to arcade machines released to celebrate the anniversary of a Pac-Man release. Machines have been made for the 25th, 30th, and 40th anniversaries of Pac-Man, and one for the 20th anniversary of Ms. Pac-Man (and Galaga).

Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga - Class of 1981

Released in 2000 by Namco. This machine features both Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga, both of which were developed in 1981 (although Ms. Pac-Man was actually released in 1982). The original Pac-Man is also an unlockable game, playable by entering a joystick combination. To date, this is one of the most commonly found arcade machines in all of North America.

Codes

  • Pac-Man: Enter Up, Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left. Blinky will turn into Pinky, and selecting Ms. Pac-Man will load Pac-Man.
  • Speed adjuster: Enter Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Fire. The speed will be changed to slow or fast (speedup chip), depending on what mode is already set by default.
