Google Features Pac-Man Game on Homepage
Posted on May 21, 2010
Google has the actual Pac-Man game as a doodle on its homepage. Google's first interactive doodle is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man, which debuted in 1980. ABC News says the game can be played for the next 48 hours on Google's homepage.
The game was only on Google's homepage for a couple days but you can still find the game and play by clicking "insert coin" on the Google Doodle archive page. The game was created to celebrate Pac-Man's 30th Anniversary.
The post by Google senior UX designer and developer Marcin Wichary says, "Google doodler Ryan Germick and I made sure to include PAC-MAN’s original game logic, graphics and sounds, bring back ghosts' individual personalities, and even recreate original bugs from this 1980’s masterpiece. We also added a little easter egg: if you throw in another coin, Ms. PAC-MAN joins the party and you can play together with someone else."
