Play PAC-MAN Forever! using Google


 
Last week, Google turned its logo into a mini-version of the game PAC-MAN, as a tribute to the arcade classic’s 30th birthday. But response to the game was so high that Google created a page Google.com/Pacman to keep the game going.

From now on, whenever you need a PAC-MAN fix just point your browser to Google.com/Pacman and you can enjoy the search giant's version of this iconic video game any time you like.

Google posted the homepage doodle in celebration of PAC-MAN's 30th anniversary, and the game was only supposed to remain available for 48 hours. But enthusiastic user feedback to "Pac-Google" inspired the search giant to rethink its plans.

Numerous sites popped up offering free download of Google's PAC-MAN for those who wanted to keep their own copy once Google took the game offline. When Namco and Midway games introduced Pac-Man to North America in 1980 it quickly became a fixture in American popular culture.

PAC-MAN inspired numerous video game spin-offs, board games, lunch boxes, a Saturday morning cartoon and several versions for home video game systems.
