Today’s Google Doodle: Pac-ManCategory: Computers
This is the most unique Google doodle I have ever seen.
In honor of Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary (it’s not Manny Pacquiao’s birthday idiot!), Google today has in its homepage not just a doodle of Pac-Man but the actual game itself that is fully playable complete with all the sounds and lights and score. There’s even an Insert Coin in its interface.
Pac-Man is an arcade game developed by Namco and licensed for distribution in the U.S. by Midway, first released in Japan on May 22, 1980. Pac-Man is universally considered as one of the classics of the medium, virtually synonymous with video games, and an icon of the 1980s popular culture.
For 48 hours, the game will be playable at Google’s home page. Go visit google.com now to play the game.
If you were unlucky to catch it, you can still play Pac-Man online for free.If you want to receive my latest posts, please subscribe to my full feed RSS or have them delivered through email. Just enter your email address below and hit the Subscribe button.
