Namco Iconic Pacman Meets Wendy's

Last year, Namco Bandai released Pac-Man Party, a party game which featured mini-games similar to those found in the Mario Party series. In an interesting tie-in, the publisher has rolled out a new tie-in for the venerable franchise in the form of toys from the large North American fast food chain Wendy's.

There's five toys to choose from, which are listed below:

PAC-MAN Bowling: Set "˜em up and knock "˜em down! Wind-up PAC-MAN and aim for the paper ghost and fruit targets. Can you knock them all down?

PAC-MAN Dash: Pull PAC-MAN back, and set him free. Which way will he go? You'll just have to see! Wind-up PAC-MAN and try to avoid the colored Ghosts or knock over the "turn-to-blue" Ghosts to win!

PAC-MAN Hide & Seek: PAC-MAN is always on the move! Take turns hiding PAC-MAN under one of the Ghosts and shuffling the Ghosts around to confuse other players. Where's PAC-MAN? The player that guesses right gets their turn to hide PAC-MAN!

PAC-MAN Maze: It's a race to collect the fruit as you roll the die and move around the game board. But Ghosts Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde will try to keep you from moving around the board and collecting your fruit. The game includes all the pieces and instructions for 1-4 player games.

PAC-MAN Tag: Get ready to chase or be chased with the PAC-MAN Tag Game! Toy includes 1 PAC-MAN and 3 Ghost tags. Players can clip on a tag to play 3 active, exciting games that will get everybody up and moving around!

It should also be noted that said toys come with a coupon for the downloadable version of the original game that started it all, so even older fans can find something to like here.
