Google hails Pac-Man with retro gaming homepage
A logo you can actually play
Google, which famously changes the logo on its homepage to suit special occasions, has gone a step further to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man.
Out goes the standard Google logo - in comes a playable version of the game.

This 'Googlised' Pac-Man features a whopping 255 levels with sound and graphics based on the Namco original.
Go to google.com for a touch of nostalgia and have a bash. Be quick - it will only stay up for 48 hours. ®
Galaga - FTW!
You need to click the "Insert Coin" button ... duh!
The audio is in a swf file and is triggered by an external interface.
...so it might even work on the new Jobsian baby. :-)
At any rate, just wasted an hour with some retro feeling. Sweet!
Saving for later playing?
Ah, c'mon - there *has* to be a way to save this - perhaps the big G wouldn't mind issuing a more permanent link to something later on?
Great way to pass the time and a trip down memory lane. Thanks Google
