A new Puckman cab - 23/08/2004
  Wow, I just noticed that it has been more than a year since I last updated this site. I never managed to get the NSM wallmounted cab over from Germany, breakdown in communications I guess which is a shame as the owner smashed up the machine :(
It's not all doom and gloom, thanks to the marvelous bazzfish I now own a Zaccaria Puckman from Italy. A real sweet looking purple cabinet with some bizarre artwork. Go check it out in the cabinets section and expect lots of artwork online soon. So far I have mannaged to scan the entire bezel, marqee and control panel overlay.

I have been contacted by Namco Legal - 07/04/2001
  After 2 years of sending emails and snailmails to Namco Ltd Japan they have finally decided to be so polite to write me back. Asking if I have acquired the right's to place Puckman material online.

Now I have been in contact with Namco US and UK for some time and they both like my site, even more, they think that fan sites are a compliment to what they do.

I have now emailed Namco Ltd Japan back asking how I can get the OK from them to have this site. If not I will be forced to shut down :(

Feel free to [email] me with your thoughts on the matter.

Puckman site gets mini review - 07/04/2001
  Just found out that someone wrote a mini review about this site ^_^
Would have been nice if they had send me an email, but thanks anyways. [click here] to visit the site.

This is the stuff they wrote, just in case they remove it from their site.

No, this isn't some clone of Pacman, but a site dedicated to the actual Pacman game. As any classic game fan knows, Pacman was named Puckman over in Japan, but the name was changed when it was brought over here due to fear that vandals would change the lettering to a profanity. Anyways, this site is dedicated to the original game and has quite a bit of stuff about it, including a ton of pictures of the original machine, in both standup and cocktail machines. So if you ever wanted to learn a little more about Puckman, then check out this site
