In 1981, Midway continued the success of Pac-Man with their new arcade game Ms. Pac-Man.  Ms. Pac-Man’s feminine touches, the cabinets’ blue and pink colors and the new female main character, were aimed to lure more female players to the game.  The faster, more challenging play of Ms. Pac-Man in which players could no longer predict the movement of the ghosts or memorize the mazes, made Ms. Pac-Man as the decisive test of video gaming skill.  Ms. Pac-Man sold over 115,00 units, making it the most popular video arcade game in history.
