A few days ago, Google featured a new Doodle on their search page to celebrate the 30 year birthday of Pacman. Unlike other Google Doodles, this one was actually a real game that you could play right on the search page.
Lots of people enjoyed playing the game and lots more people were annoyed at the game sounds that played when the page loaded. Those who enjoyed playing the game might have been disappointed to see that it is now gone from the Google search page.
Earlier today, I saw a post by Shankar Ganesh which told me how I could download a copy of the Google Pacman page. I wasn’t satisfied with a downloaded copy and I decided to look around for the original page and after a few minutes, I found it.
The new permanent home for Google’s Pacman is:
Now there’s no need to download a copy of it. All you have to do is bookmark the page. You can even set this page as your default search engine if you really enjoy it.
If you still want to download a copy of this game, just go to the link above and use the Save Asmenu in your web browser to save a copy of the page.
Here are three tips for playing the game:
- It can now be muted by clicking the sound icon on the left corner of the game board.
- You can play a two player game by clicking the Insert Coinbutton under the search box.
- You can easily resize the game by holding down a CTRL key and scrolling your mouse wheel.
Many people think that this is the best Google Doodle ever made. What do you think?
