Into the Spider's Web: Pacman in Google Search Page

I was already in the office when one of my coleagues informed me to open the Google page. Upon opening it, I saw that the Google logo has been changed into the classic Pacman maze. Upon further checking, you can actually play the game in the Google logo.

Google pays tribute to Pacman as the game celebrates its 30th anniversary and includes it to the number of its Google Doodle series. The game was developed by Namco and was released in Japan on May 22, 1980.

The Pacman Google Doodle was launched a day earlier of its anniversary and can be enjoyed for 48 hours because Google believed that a day will not be enough to reminisce the beloved classic game. The game also features Ms. Pacman when you click the Insert Coin button during the gameplay. Google Philippines had a customized "Ihulog and Barya" button to have a local touch in the tribute..
