PAC MAN 256 Rated For PC and Consoles In Taiwan

By   /   Apr 26, 2016

A leaked image has surfaced on the internet which reveals that PAC MAN 256 might be coming to PC and consoles. According to the leak, the game has been rated in Taiwan for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Originally PAC MAN 256 is a mobile game for iOS and Android. The game is based on the famous glitch that occurs after completing level 255 in PAC MAN.

This glitch is otherwise known as “Split Screen level” or a “Kill screen”. This glitch happens when players reach level 256 and the right of the screen becomes jumbled mess of numbers and letters but the left side is normal. This level is impossible to beat.

In Ms PAC MAN the screen goes black with nothing but ghost left on the screen, it also happens in Jr.PAC MAN except there are bits of the sprites of the houses and balloon in the cut-scenes. It also occurs in PAC MAN Google Doodle as an easter egg.

As to why this glitch appears is because of the level counter in the original PAC MAN is stored as 8 bit integer, meaning the highest value it can hold is 255. However, a bug in the game causes the game to reach at level 256, resulting in an integer overflow and causing the glitch on the right side of map.
