I know I have written about PAC man in an earlier article and reviewed some some great shirts. Some of these are even in my top 50 video game shirts. However I felt the need to revisit PAC man, and not because I am getting a preverbial hard on for PAC man.

It is because recently I have found some fantastic PAC man inspired shirts so I thought I would bring you my Top 7  twisted PAC man video game shirts. All of these have a unusual twist on PAC man, making these shirts look fantastic and some of them you might not even ‘get’ the PAC man reference.

You never know one or two of these shirts may even find their way in my top Top 50 countdown. There are a lot of shirts to choose from but the seven that I have chosen are the ones that would look good on anyone. For more reading on what makes a great video game shirt, check out my article of the same name.

Ok, now lets get on with the shirts. This countdown will be in order of preference, with number 1 being my favourite shirt.

1. Pakku Man Shirt

This shirt has to be one of my favourite shirts, inspired by ancient Japan and PAC man. The Pakku-man shirt has a fantastic design and may take some people a while to get it but that aside the artwork is amazing. The designer has created a shirt that he would wear. Beast wear is the name of the label. Look out for more great designs coming from this talented designer.

The shirt is based on an ancient Japanese print, that belonged to the creator of PAC man. The print was thought to be lost but recently turned up in a warehouse and is now thought of as the original inspiration for PAC man. The common misconception had been PAC man was inspired by a pizza with one slice missing.

2. Busted Shirt

I really like this Ghostbusters/PAC man mash up. There are a few different designs for a ghostbusters and PAC man cross over. This Is my favourite, I just love the clever design of this shirt, I always say the best designed shirts need little or no wording at all.

3. PAC Moon Shirt

The artwork in this shirt is amazing from the designers at ???? (the French version of Threadless). The moon is PAC man esque. This shirt is limited to only 500. I would strongly recommend you get yours as soon as possible.

4. Munch Time Shirt

Replacing the dots for skyscrapers in Tokyo this shirt again has some excellent artwork. A great addition to any video game shirt collection.

5. Arcadeology Shirt

An excellent shirt that has another great twist on the PAC man theme. Again notice the lack any wording as the imagery speaks for it self.

6. The Madness Of Mission 6

Another PAC man shirt with a twist. This time there is a apace mission theme. This shirt is has a certain atmospheric theme to it.

7. PAC Man Level 256 Shirt

The final shirt is more obviously based on the game itself.
[break]
Let’s have a quick History lesson first.
[break]
Level 256 simply does not exist, it does sort of. Let me explain myself more clearly. Once you complete level 255 and reach level 256, the game simply breaks. The level 266 screen will appear seen in the shirt below. The shirt also displays the highest possible score on he final screen of the game.
[break]
Now all the shirts were obviously heavily influenced by PAC man. They all demonstrate the rich tapestry of ideas that can be gleaned from the video game industry, where they take their inspiration to create some fantastic designs. For more PAC man shirts, check out article name,

Let me know what you think. Or is there a shirt that you feel should be included in the list.
