On November 20, 2020 at around 10:47PM PST Mr. Race successfully laid claim to the title of first Perfect Pac-Man of the weekend leading up to the 40th anniversary of the game.


A perfect pac-man game is a rare achievement. Eating every dot, every fruit, every ghost, without dying ONCE, for 256 levels straight-non-stop is an exercise in absolute gaming mastery.

It is important to understand that an average player attempting to achieve such an accomplishment would simply be reaching beyond their ability - embarrassingly struggling for hours and hours, day after day, resetting the game, to try over and over again with nothing but frustration and failure.

BUT DAVID RACE IS NO AVERAGE PLAYER, and on November 20, 2020 at around 10:47PM PST Mr. Race successfully laid claim to the title of FIRST Perfect Pacman of the weekend leading up to the 40th anniversary of the game, live on his twitch stream:

The entire gaming community continues to be floored by David's consistent ability to Killscreen Pac-Man with a perfect score on demand.

Particularly impressive is that this time Mr. Race only used the first (and one and only) credit to accomplish his feat during a livestream performance.

That's right, he only played once!

To be clear: Walking up to a Pac-Man machine, placing 1 credit into the machine, then playing once and achieving a perfect game on that single attempt is as good as it gets. This incredible achievement shows why David Race is the world record holder for fastest perfect pac-man and arguably a contender for the controversial title of the "Greatest Pac-Man Player That Ever Lived."

During his performance, David made a point of not using any "patterns" for the first 21 boards of his impressive achievement. After that, Mr. Race would "break pattern" from time to time throughout his entire performance, likely just to keep things spicy.

While many top Pac-Man competitiors struggle to achieve a perfect game just once in their lives, this achievement represents David's 10th Perfect Pac-Man game.
