Hi

 

It looks like the first available version for the Atari 800 was the one that shows Pac Man "with legs" on the box. There's another box version that shows Pac Man as we know him (Without legs). I always had this doubt of which one was released first.

 

Thanks for sharing your findings!

 

Luis.
