November 13, 2020 - PAC-MAN™ is iconic; one of the most famous video games ever developed. And Caterpillar is bringing it back center stage, 40 years after its release, as only the Cat® Trials can: at a scale of epic proportions! The Cat® Trial #9 puts Pac-Man and the ghosts back on the board. It brings the virtual world into a live action version of the popular video game.
The goal is simple: gobble up all the pellets before the ghosts can get you. The classic, electronic chase scene features some unique power pellets and bonuses that only Cat® Dealers can provide. So, you’re watching so much more than a reimagined version of the game; it highlights the technology, the versatility, the agility and the power you demand in the real world.
Building the Board
Before we could start playing, we had to build a life-sized game board. Skilled operators using Next Gen Excavators with Cat® Grade 3D, Mini Excavator with new Tilt Rotating work tools and additional Cat® gear were up to the task.
Ready Player One
The game itself features the important work you do every single day. Just like on the job site, there’s a challenge waiting around every corner!
The Cat® Trial #9: PAC-MAN™ is powered by autonomy and automation – a way for you to be safer and more efficient. Players are using remote controls to operate Pac-Man and the ghosts, just how you’d use it for work in an area where you’d rather not have an operator in the cab. It’s all about safety for your crew.
Power Up With Cat® Services
Just like the power pellets allow PAC-MAN™ to charge up and take on the ghosts, the ones you see in this game correspond to services that help you to power up, to meet tough challenges and get the most out of your Cat machines.
