Google's Playable Pac-Mac Logo Lives On
In celebration of Pac-Man's 30th anniversary, Google on Friday converted its doodle to a playable version of the arcade classic. But you knew that already. It was all anyone could talk (or tweet) about for several hours.
Due to its overwhelming popularity, Google is keeping the doodle online forever. Google.com has reverted to the standard multi-colored Google logo, but a visit to Google.com/Pacman will reveal a recreation of Friday's homepage. Click "Insert Coin" to fire up the game. Click it twice to bring up a two-player version of the game, complete with a playable Ms. Pac-Man.
"Thanks to [Pac-Man maker] NAMCO for helping to make this wonderful collaboration happen," Marissa Mayer, vice president of search products and user experience, wrote in a blog post.
