There Is Playable Pac-Man In Your Google Logo

Google has a proud tradition of modifying their logo image to commemorate special occasions, but for the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man, they've gone from image manipulation to game creation.

Pac-Man was released in Japan on May 22, 1980. Back then you'd regularly find arcades packed with players eager to guide the pizza-faced hero through his mazes. Nowadays you can play Pac-Man on just about everything, including the Google logo.

The mini version of Pac-Man has all the bells and whistles of the original game, though the maze has undergone a few changes of course, including the addition of a fifth power pellet in the G.

You can even team up with a friend by hitting the "Insert Coin" button a second time, busting ghosts with the aid of Ms. Pac-Man!

This could be the best Google logo manipulation ever created. Check it out for yourself!

And no, I'm not giving you a link. Google it.


    Last night I booted up FF and it started making pacman sounds. A confused 10 minutes later someone relayed via facebook it was 30 years, so I went to google and found this.

    When I started playing it on google it was a SECOND set of sound effects. Maybe it was magically piped through my searchbar somehow? Regardless, it creeped the hell out of me and isn't happening this morning.

    Click the Insert Coin twice and you get a two player with Ms Pacman...

    WASD are the keys for the Ms.

    Hahaha. Love it! :D

    Wait, it has sound effects too? Why doesn't mine?

    "And no, I’m not giving you a link. Google it."

    Google's so advanced, the search result came back before I searched :P
