The oldest written reference to 3-Demon I can find so far, a few years after the first release of the game. https://archive.org/details/l-ordinateur-individuel-083/page/n143/mode/1up?q=%223-demon%22&view=theater

It roughly translates: "3-DEMON - The newest and most breathtaking variation on the PACMAN theme. The program generates a three-dimensional maze where you, PACMAN, run through corridors with realistic perspectives, with perhaps a ghost lurking around the next bend.

Magazine cover says 1986, upload has been incorrectly labelled 1983. "L'Ordinateur Individuel" I think would translate to "The Personal Computer". https://archive.org/details/l-ordinateur-individuel-083/mode/1up?view=theater
