Happy 30th Birthday Pac-Man

Internet giant Google marks the 30th birthday of Pac-Man by featuring the classic arcade videogame in the first-ever playable doodle on its home page.

Web users who open Google’s homepage after 1500 GMT Friday will be greeted by a small-scale Pac-man game set around a barely discernible “Google” in the middle of the game’s colorful maze.

The game designed by Toru Iwatani was first released by Japan-based Namco into arcades on May 22, 1980.

The Google doodle Pac-Man comes complete with the arcade game’s trademark music and sound effects, and an “Insert Coin” button where Google’s “I’m feeling lucky” button usually is.

    If computer games had any effect on the real world…..then we’d have… as kids spent days running around in darkened rooms, listening to repetitive music and munching power pills 😉
