It should be illegal to say such a thing. Besides Atari, Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man are probably the most famous games in video game history.

Pac Man on a phone isn't the same as playing it on an Arcade machine, but definitely fun. :)

"Namco explained the decision by noting that Android has the largest installed base today"
Good to see a major game company recognizes this. Most of the others apparently are oblivious to Android. Also if you notice, games from Japanese developers have been getting more aggresively released on Android, probably has to do with the android install base in Japan vs iOS, its a bigger gap there than it is in America or the world average. Karoisoft games for instance have been getting a lot more support on Android than iOS lately (they make some of the best mobile games, simulation based ones, mix of free and cost).
