Last Friday marked the 30th anniversary of one of the most beloved and recognized video games of all time, PAC-MAN (released in Japan by Namco). In celebration Google changed it's logo to resemble the board from the game that marked an era. This tribute to PAC-MAN on Google's home page will end today so if you haven't already done so, go to the classic google.com home page and click the button "Insert Coin" to enjoy a blast from the past.

Hit the "Insert Coin" button a second time and you enjoy the 2-player mode that will take you and a friend back to your childhood video-gaming days of Atari and Commodore 64. Player 1 uses the arrow keys, player 2 uses W A S D (the same keys used in today's PC shooter games). Be sure to crank up the volume and let in that classic, original game music and enjoy!

kewl I played for a little bit but could no remember any of the patterns still pretty cool . although makes me feel a little old.


30 long years after it was made and google is the best way for an application or game to celebrate i suppose since billions visit google frequently. I think the addition of the playable game made it extra special.
