Meet Billy Mitchell the Man Who Beat ‘Pac-Man’


Back in July 1999 Billy Mitchell did the seemingly impossible, he beat Pac-Man by getting the perfect score of 3,333,360 points. It meant he had to complete 256 levels of the game and play for over 5 hours straight without dying once. It also meant he “broke” the game, because when you hit level 255 it runs out of memory and only displays the left side.

It was such an achievement that not even the game’s creators knew it was possible, and he was award the accolade “Video Game Player of the Century” for his effort.
