We can now add Pac-Man to the ever-growing list of anniversaries we didn't know were coming. Released exactly 30 years ago, the Namco-developed arcade game is being honored by Google with a very special Google Doodle logo.
 
Today, in place of the recognizable Google logo is a fully-playable, albeit somewhat squished, version of Pac-Man. To play, you select "insert coin," which is in place of the "I'm feeling Lucky" button. Click twice and Ms. Pac-Man appears next to Pac-Man. However, only Mr. Pac-Man seems to move; Ms. Pac-Man inexplicably stays behind and eats ghosts that inadvertently run into her. [Editor's Note: Ms. Pac-Man can be controlled if one player uses the arrow keys and the other uses "WASD" keys.] Controls are, naturally, your mouse or arrow keys.
 
All the game details are spot-on, right down to the impulse to ignore work, friends, familiy and play for hours. Curse you, Namco and Google.
