The little yellow guy we all know and love is 30 years old! Launched on May 22nd, 1980 in Japan, the game Pac-Man swept the world within just a few months. The Guiness Book of World Records lists it as the most successful coin-operated game ever. To celebrate, Google has unveiled an interactive logo that is a playable Pac-Man game. Just click the “insert coin” button on the Google homepage, or wait ten seconds for the game to start automatically. Click the “insert coin” button twice, and Ms. Pac-Man will load (play using W A S and D). If you use iGoogle, you’ll need to go to Google’s classic homepage. The game will be available until 11AM US Eastern Time Sunday, or until midnight Saturday night in Japan.
