goglpaNew York - 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 logos - called Google Doodles - which often celebrate holidays and notable birthdays, was updated Friday to look like a screen 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 added bonus - click it twice - you get Ms. Pac-Man for two players.

Google’s 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 and game fans paused to play.

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.

That was an incredibly random way to lash out. Calm down. Maybe step away from the computer for a while.

Maybe that's why they came out with MS. Pacman!

There's also Pacman Jr., so kids won't feel discriminated against, and Super-Pacman, so that superheroes won't feel discriminated against.
