Apparently, it’s Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary, and that’s the reason you’re able to play the iconic arcade game right on the front page of Google.
The ever-changing Google logo was updated on Friday (May 21) to look like a screen from the classic game, but with a twist — the Google logo is implemented into the actual Pac-Man game. Yes, it’s playable too.
If you look next to the “search” button, there’s a button that says “insert coin”. Push it, and you get a free play of Google’s version of the Pac-Man. If you push the button twice, you get Ms. Pac-Man for two players!
The game is complete with the game’s original sounds.
Pac-Man was originally called Puck Man, but when it launched in the U.S. in October 1980, it was given the Pac-Man name you know today, and it went on to sell more than 100,000 units in its first year of production.
It is even listed by Guinness World Records as the world’s most successful coin-operated game.
Head over to Google.com to play Pac-Man for free. It will only be there for 48 hours!
