AtGames is a company that markets various Plug 'n Play systems (often referred to as "flashbacks") and handheld devices featuring games from Atari, Coleco, Sega and INTV Corp (Intellivision). While these products may be licensed, they run on the same hardware that many clone systems do, and several of the games found on their various consoles are either unlicensed from the original copyright holder or are pirate originals.

In September 2019, Bandai Namco Entertainment filed a lawsuit against AtGames for attempting to release a bootleg Ms. Pac-Man arcade machine. While AtGames previously had the license to Pac-Man, they didn't at this time, and never had the Ms. Pac-Man rights under any form. According to the lawsuit, AtGames has even claimed that they bought out General Computer Corporation's partial rights to the game, a completely illegal move and a claim Bandai Namco is yet to even verify.
The lawsuit also mentions the Bandai Namco Flashback Blast, a licensed Pac-Man console. The version of the system Bandai Namco approved featured arcade games, while the version released had unapproved Famicom/NES games (including several from Tengen, with their copyrights intact). This console's release caused damage to Bandai Namco's reputation due to false advertising.
