For people who missed the game, this was entertainment of the highest order. For others, the Pac-Man doodle was just a distraction, plain and simple.
After having the game up for several days, Google went back to it’s familiar logo. And some were not happy with the change. They wanted Pac-Man back.
“We’ve been overwhelmed — but not surprised 🙂 — by the success of our 30th anniversary Pac-Man doodle,” Google VP Marissa Mayer noted in her blog. So Google being Google unveiled a permanent Pac-Man site, which is fun and addictive and entirely optional. If you are one of those who loved Pac-Man and want to play the game online, go to google.com/pacman. At that URL, Pac-Man fans will be able steer their little yellow avatar around that small arena until their eyeballs detach from their heads.
And if you have an iPhone you can download the Apple iPhone version of the game and choose from Pac-Man and Ms. Pacman in the iPhone App Store.
You can now play Pac-Man forever.
