The arcade version of Pac-man had a highest possible score of 3,333,360 which was achieved for the first time by Billy Mitchell on July 4th, 1999 in Weirs Beach, New Hampshire. Billy is a native of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The highest high score can only be achieved by eating EVERY fruit and EVERY blue ghost on every one of the 256 levels in addition to every dot and energizer. Without losing a life.

He arrived July 1st, with the sole purpose to beat the Canadians to the highest high score. He refused to eat until he had won. "I had to be the first," Mitchell explains. "It's like Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. No matter how many people who accomplish it afterwards, it will always be Armstrong who will be remembered for doing it first. And best of all, it was an American."

A few months before, Rick Fothergill of Hamilton, Ontario fell just 90 points short of the highest possible score.

Mitchell also holds the world record on the classic Donkey Kong game (as of July 4th, 1999).
