Happy Birthday, Pac-Man!

Today is the 30th anniversary of the iconic game, and Google have celebrated by making their “Google doodle” a fully playable version! The “I’m feeling lucky” button has been replaced with “Insert coin” which does exactly what you’d expect.

You control the little yellow guy with the arrow keys. But wait, there’s more! Double-click on it and you get a two-player version, with Ms. Pac-Man being controlled with the WASD keys!

UPDATE: The game is now permanently available at http://google.com/pacman for your 8-bit delight!
