Pacman as Google Doodle


Google Doodle turned into Pacman game on its 30th anniversary. Famous video game Pacman turned 30 on Saturday. Pacman’s 30th anniversary has been celebrated by the search engine giant Google.
The Google doodle is the first interactive Pacman game, which users can directly enjoy from Google home page. When you go to Google’s main page you will notice that the logo has been replaced with a game of Pacman. All you do is hit “Insert Coin” and play away. Enjoy yourselves….
What I find interesting is that the game doesn’t seem to be coded using Flash. It definitely seems to be created using HTML5, CSS and Javascript. i hope to see more of such interactive doodles on Google. Maybe its just a start.

PACMAN as Google Doodle

From Google Blog:

PAC-MAN seems like a natural fit for the Google homepage. They’re both deceptively straightforward, carefully hiding their complexity under the hood. There’s a light-hearted, human touch to both of them. And we can only hope you find using Google at least a quarter as enjoyable as eating dots and chasing ghosts. You know, without actually needing any quarters.
