10 Throwback Arcade Games To Play Before Going To See Pixels In IMAX® 3D!
Jul 23, 2015
Our favorite 2D arcade characters such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Q*Bert, will make their three-dimensional debut this weekend when Pixels hits select IMAX® 3D theatres. Instead of coming back as heroes, these characters come charging in from outer space to play out a real life video game to destroy mankind.
 
Here’s our list of 10 arcade games featured in the movie for you to play before going to see Pixels in IMAX 3D! 
 
 
Game #1: Pac-Man
Who knew this iconic and lovable protagonist would turn out to be the bad guy?
