Pac-Man Turns 30, Google Celebrates in Style (Updated)

Pac-Man turns 30 today, and Google is celebrating by changing their masthead as usual… Except this one is special.

Today, the Google masthead is a fully functioning game of Pac-Man. To get started, just click “Insert Coin” under the search bar. Click “Insert Coin” twice for two players.

Player one uses the “ASDW” keys, why player two users the arrow keys.

Even more impressive, the game is not created in Flash, it’s done entirely in Java (the sound is done with Flash).

Enjoy on google.com.

Update:

Google Pac-Man can be found at its new home: http://www.google.com/pacman/

  1. It’s both impressive and surprising what Google has done today for the PacMan’s 30th birthday. Well done for Google and happy birthday for PacMan.
