Default Pac-Man is 30! Celebrate along with... Google?

Visiting Google's homepage today will get you a fun surprise: a full, playable version of Pac-Man above the search bar. The logo is the center of the maze and the game recreates the sights and sounds of the game while leaving the smell of cheap pot and regret behind. How I miss arcades.

Authenticity was important. "Google doodler Ryan Germick and I made sure to include PAC-MANís original game logic, graphics and sounds, bring back ghostsí individual personalities, and even recreate original bugs from this 1980ís masterpiece," Marcin Wichary, senior UX designer and developer wrote. If you put in another virtual coin, Ms. Pac-Man joins the fun for co-op play. Use the arrow keys for Pac-Man, WASD for his wife, and you're having a good time.
