A playable Pac-Man on Google

It’s been a tradition in Google to re-decorate the Google logo on the homepage of the search engine. The designs usually commemorate an anniversary or celebration of historical significance.

Most of the time, it’s just a play on the letters of the word Google but this time, the entire logo is practically playable.


 




Just check out this Pac-Man game over at the homepage of Google. Might take several seconds for it to load but once it does, you’ll be surprised. This is probably the most interesting of all the Google Doodle I’ve seen.

    @Yuga
    There’s an easter egg on the site. If you click the Insert Coin button twice, Ms. Pacman will appear and you’ll be able to play in two-player mode.

    @Bullet Yap – Wrong place to post. There’s such a thing as “Job Listings” on this website. Learn how to read.

    Kahit ang tagal na ng PacMan, I can’t still master it. Hehe.. Shame on me!

    We even played this in the office. IT can’t accuse us of browsing a non-business related website because we use Google in searches.

    that was the most annoying thing last night, the sound that goes with it. I had to switch to igoogle as my homepage to escape the irritating sound

    @Kevin: HTML5 can’t do that. It uses Javascript and Flash for the audio.
