Need Pills?

Thanks nin for pointing out that if you wokka wokka wokka over to Google you can see they have a logo celebrating the 30th anniversary of Pac Man. The fun in this is that the logo is playable. According to Wikipedia the game launched in Japan (using the name Puck Man) on May 22, 1980.

Although it is no longer on the main Google webpage, I did a search and found that the Pac Man Doodle is now at this link: http://www.google.com/pacman/
GOOD JOB!

I too would like to see this Google Doodle saved for posterity. Perhaps it will be archived in http://www.google.com/logos/
Yeah, I find it weird that it is not in archive as well. IU have a bad feeling it will be gone tomorrow (only up for two days from what I read from its official blog).

But is there a direct link to this Google's Pac-Man game since it will go away after today? I wonder how much Namco got paid.

Yeah a direct link is critical since there aren't like 1 million other ways to play this ancient game legally for free if you wanted to. Oh, wait...

True! Because I've played this game for years with a maze in the shape of a Google logo. Oh, wait...
Anywho, I'm thinking that's why he wants a link, for the Google maze.
I wonder if they did it on purpose due to cost and licensing with Namco? But Google is rich!

anyone have sound? it apparently has sound but mine doesnt play with sound.
It didn't work in my Mozilla's SeaMonkey 2.0.4 Web browser, but did work in IE8 in an updated 64-bit Windows 7 HP. What was your Web browser?

I'd love to link to it for AQFL and future, but home page linkage isn't acceptable.
