Namco Pac-Man is an 8-bit arcade game system board that was first used by Namco in 1980; the second and third games to run on it, Rally-X and New Rally-X, were modified to support a larger color palette and scrolling. Three unauthorized Pac-Man sequels were later developed by Bally Midway, Namco's old US distributor, on this board between 1981 and 1983. In 1984, Namco released Pac-Land and ended its partnership with Bally Midway. In 1985, Namco developed and released Jump Shot (a basketball simulation) and Shoot the Bull (a darts game) on this board.
