HURRY!! Google's got Pac-Man in 30th Anniversary Celebration Today!



google.com

Pretty cool, eh?  Note that you can actually play.

I imagine it will be gone after today . . .  So probably a few days ago.

UPDATE:  Google went all out on this one!  Turns out this simple home page game has 255 levels (like the original), employs a number of quarks like being able to tell where the ghosts are going based on where their eyes look (like the original) and actually allows for two player (like the original)!  Wow.

Read this for more:  http://news.cnet.com/8301-13772_3-20005528-52.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20

Oh, and it turns out that it will actually be up for 48 hours.  But man, people had better be pretty dang, uh, skilled to pass all 255 levels and still carry on normal human functions in that time period!

F-Word, Stmad, Ren of the Wolves, are you up for the challenge?

I was so in love with this and figured you probably were promoting it ;)

Yes,indeed.

I heard it uh, compiled, at least 4.8 million hours of, um, entertainment.

Not sure if that was the whole weekend or when.

I'll have to test it.

I am truly shocked and appalled you haven't.

You call yourself a former/currently less available gamer!?

It's been over a week.

For shame.
