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 to keep the game going.

From now on, whenever you need a PAC-MAN fix just point your browser to 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.
