Pacman Google Logo Video

Pacman is taking over Google! The iconic arcade game celebrates its 30th anniversary on May 22, and Google has created a one-of-a-kind Pacman Google Doodle in his honor.

Google frequently changes to its primary color logo to celebrate the birthday anniversaries of the fittings, the pop culture icons and major innovations (Sesame Street and barcodes have been one of the honorees), but Pacman Google logo is unique in that it is the first playable Google Doodle.

According to Google, Pacman logo has a total of 256 levels. Users can click on "Insert Coin" for the game, or click twice to launch a game for two players. (See it in action in the video below.) Pacman will be up in Google for a total of 48 hours - from 8:00 a.m. PT on Friday and Sunday morning. The developer behind the Doodle Pacman was allegedly the son of a pinball game and the coach and used to accompany his father to help salons and arcade games to play.
