Happy 30th anniversary Pac-Man, Google style! If you haven’t been to Google’s homepage yet today, check it out now before it’s gone. Hint: It didn’t look this hip when it debuted 30 years ago today.
Yep, it’s a fully functional Pac-Man game with Google-stenciled islands in a wide-angle maze with the t-junction and ghost repository serving aptly as the second ‘g’. There’s even an extra power pill per level.
Controls? Your keyboard’s arrow keys, what else? Tap the ‘insert coin’ button twice and you can play Ms. Pac-Man simultaneously using the W-A-S-D keys.
Does it have all 255 levels? The infamous split-screen “finale”? Other unexpected Google-styled easter eggs?
Guess we’ll just have to play to find out.
Update: It’ll be live for 48 hours, says Google, and apparently does include all 255 levels–even the glitchy 256th.
