Google offers a free online Pac-Man game to celebrate the games 30th anniversary.

It’s the Pac-Man 30th anniversary this weekend, and Google is celebrating as only Google can: with a free online game embedded in its homepage logo.

The ever-changing Google logo – called the Google Doodle – which often celebrates holidays and notable birthdays, was updated Friday to look like a screen from a classic Pac-Man game.

But in a delightful twist, the logo actually is a Pac-Man game. Alongside the “Google Search” button, today the site offers an “Insert Coin” button.

Click it once – you get Pac-Man. And click it twice – you get Ms. Pac-Man for two players.

Google and Twitter search trends were burning with Pac-Man related key words as word spread – and (we suspect) work in offices across the nation ground to a halt as gaming fans paused to play.

But if you’re playing at work, make sure your computer speakers are off. Google Pac-Man comes complete with the original sounds.

To play Pac-Man on the Google home page, click “Insert Coin” and when the word “Ready!” appears, use the arrow keys to control your Pac-Man.

If you add Ms. Pac-Man to the mix, Player 2 uses the “W-A-S-D” keys as controllers.
