As part of Pacman 30th-anniversary celebration for this game, Nintendo released a limited edition red Famicom, modified to play the Pacman 30th anniversary game, complete with original packaging and instructions.
Google has just celebrated the Pacman 30th anniversary. This iconic arcade game is now more popular than ever to players all across the world, with more American children playing it than kids ever did back in 1980. This amazing and impressive success comes at a time when many other video games have fallen off popularity ladder, such as Candy Crush and Angry Birds.
The Google Doodle is a bit similar to the original Pacman game. The player can navigate Pacman using the arrow keys, with each key representing a horizontal line of pixels. As the player eats, they must avoid the Fruits and all the Ghosts that haunt them.
The Google logo has been reimagined as an all-powerful Pacman. They have to eat the Key and Power pellets so that they can steal batteries from their arch enemies – Froogle (Google shopping) and Gmail. The game also features a single clear fruit on each level, which you must eat in order to complete (although it only appears once). You can play Pacman in your browser by going to www.google.co.uk or the Google Doodle page, which can be accessed by clicking on the Doodle tab at the top of Google’s homepage.
How Google Celebrated Pacman 30th anniversary? How to play?
Google is celebrating the Pacman 30th anniversary with an interactive doodle. Players can control the iconic character (in its historic yellow form) as they make their way through a maze of dots, avoiding ghosts and gobbling up power pills. There are also three different speeds/difficulties to choose from; competitive players may be most interested in high difficulty, where “eating” five dots in a row earns you an extra life. To play, just head to www.google.com
The Google doodle brings back some nostalgia from the old days. Many of us have played this game, racing to get a high score and even bragging about it. This is a great way for Google to connect with its audience. It also shows how relevant Pacman still is after 30 years. There are countless blog posts, tweets, and Facebook posts talking about how much fun people had playing the game or reminiscing on the good old days.

Where to Download PacMan 30th Anniversary for PC?
PacMan is an enduring classic, one that people of all ages can enjoy. The game sees you running around a maze eating dots and chomping ghosts before they eat you, and as such has been played over 30 million times! From 2001 until now it has had many different versions across multiple platforms – PC, Mac OSX, Linux, etc. Which version should you download: the original or the enhanced edition?
The Enhanced Edition comes with 120 faster levels so if you’re looking for a nostalgic trip down memory lane while also enjoying new challenges then this may be the game for you. However, this version does not feature the original Pac-Man levels and it doesn’t include the colorful graphics of the second and third generations of Pac Man so if you’re looking for a pure experience then download the original. This game is full of fun and will have you reminiscing while at the same time delivering new challenges to keep you playing long after you’ve completed all 120 levels.
