Gobble, Gobble!

Big Screen event gets high score in Wharf Green
 
Pac-Man in Swindon, Wharf Green, Swindon town centre
I'm coming to get you!:
the 'human' Pac-Man game
in Wharf Green
The scourge of ghosts, dots and power pills munched his way into Swindon town centre today to celebrate the 30th anniversary of all-time video game classic, Pac-Man.

Three unique events were organised by the Museum of Computing in Wharf Green to mark the milestone - including a specially constructed maze for a unique `Human Pac-Man' event.
 
A game where members of the public were be able to control a real life Pac-Man on the Big Screen, trying to avoid the giant ghosts while collecting dots.
 
"The day has been as brilliant as the weather," said Simon Webb, organisor and curator of the Museum of Computing. 
 
"There's so many mums and dads here that remember Pac-Man I hope it's brought back a few memories!"
