About The Game

Pac & Pal is an arcade video game.

Pac-Man has a new friend named Miru, but she tries to steal stuff for her own use. Pac-Man now not only has to collect the stuff lying around the board, but he also must watch Miru to make sure she doesn't take the stuff for her own use.

Trivia

Released in July 1983.

The 'Pal' in the game's title is named Miru.

An alternate version of this game features Chomp Chomp, Pac-Man's dog from the animated cartoon series, in place of Miru, and the game's name is changed accordingly : "Pac-Man & Chomp-Chomp".

First "Pac-Man" game to have music during gameplay.
