Today is a big birthday for one of the original icons of video gaming.

Pac-man is 30 years old.

The game is credited with making video arcades popular, and is listed as the most successful coin-operated game ever by Guinness.

To celebrate the anniversary, the company that makes the game has released the championship editions for i-Phone and i-Pad.

So waht was the inspiration for such a simple, but successful game? Pizza.

The man who created is says he ordered a whole pie one day, took out a slice and a light went on.
