It’s official – I’m old! How can we be celebrating 30 years of Pac-Man? Seems like only yesterday we were playing the game, chasing ghosts and eating fruit.

Well it’s true, and to celebrate the anniversary, Google, in the midst of a week of major announcements from their Google I/O conference, is honoring us lovers of the old school with a playable version of Pac-Man on their home page.

It’s pretty authentic too. Google’s Marcin Wichary says, “[we] made sure to include PAC-MAN’s original game logic, graphics and sounds, bring back ghosts’ individual personalities, and even recreate original bugs from this 1980’s masterpiece.”
