Google honors the birth of 'Pac-Man'; share your memories
Interested in playing Pac-Man, in honor of the classic arcade game's 30th anniversary? Just head over to Google.
Readers who go to the main Google search page will notice the logo has been replaced with a game of Pac-Man. Just hit "Insert Coin" and gobble away.
"PAC-MAN seems like a natural fit for the Google homepage," reads a post on the official Google blog. "They're both deceptively straightforward, carefully hiding their complexity under the hood. There's a light-hearted, human touch to both of them. And we can only hope you find using Google at least a quarter as enjoyable as eating dots and chasing ghosts."
Pac-Man debuted in the arcades in 1980, and can be found on pretty much every platform imaginable.
