PAC-MAN’s 30th birthday: Google uploaded first-ever playable Google doodle on homepage

PAC-MAN, by Toru Iwatani stood out as one of the first video games aimed at a broader audience, with a cute story of pizza-shaped character gobbling dots in a maze, colorful (literally!) characters, friendly design, very little violence and everlasting fun. Today, PAC-MAN’s 30th birthday, “you can rediscover some of your 8-bit memories—or meet PAC-MAN for the first time—through first-ever playable Google doodle. Just go to google.com during the next 48 hours and either press “Insert Coin” button or just wait for a few seconds. Marcin Wichary and Google doodler Ryan Germick included original game logic, graphics & sounds, bring back ghosts’ individual personalities, and even recreate original bugs from this 1980’s masterpiece. Also added a little easter egg: if you throw in another coin, Ms. PAC-MAN joins the party and you can play together with someone else (PAC-MAN is controlled with arrow keys or by clicking on the maze, Ms. PAC-MAN using the WASD keys),” noted Google.
