Google Celebrates PAC-MAN Birthday With Playable Doodle
By on May 21st, 2010

are often a part of the Google homepage, either to celebrate a great personalities birthday or a great invention. Today’s though is a unique one which celebrates the 30th birthday of PAC-MAN.

Google PAC-MAN 30th Birthday Doodle

What’s so unique about today’s Google Doodle? Well, you can actually play the PAC-MAN game by either using the Insert Coin button next to Google search or waiting for a few seconds. The game also has a Easter egg which is activated when you press the Insert Coin button twice in a game. Once you do that, a new character Ms. PAC-MAN will enter the game.

Another unique thing about today’s doodle is that, instead of the usual 24 hours, this doodle will be displayed to users for the next 48 hours.

However, I must warn you that keeping the Google.com page open for long can kind of annoy you since there is no stop button anywhere to close or pause the game, so make sure you go to Google to search :-P.

Rest aside, I have always been a big PAC-MAN fan and have played the game on arcades, consoles and even on an emulator. So my hearty birthday wishes to the little guy.
