Google Pacman Logo - Its Playable

Did you notice the Google logo today? I guess almost everyone has, so this is for them who are yet to notice the main feature of the logo - it's playable. Yes, you can play the real game which you used to play on the video games.

Commemorating the 30th birthday of the popular video game of the 80s and the 90s, Pacman, Google has used the Pacman logo (or should I say the game) on its search engine homepage. By clicking on the "Insert Coin" button or simply keeping the page open for around 10 seconds will start the game. The direction(arrow) keys are used for control. So what are you waiting for? Open the search page and start playing instead of searching.
For more information about this logo, and about Google's strategy to use HTML, CSS and JavaScript instead of Flash to develop the logo, please visit Questechie.
