Google’s Pac-Man 30th Anniversary

Friday, May 21st, 2010

In case you missed it, starting yesterday, Google‘s home screen doodle is a full fledged PacMan game:

Google's PacMan Doodle

What is interesting (to me anyway), is that the game is full encoded using HTML and Javascript – each ghost or pacman and also all the dots are graphics assigned using CSS to HTML DIV elements, which are moved on the screen using Javascript (source code is here at the moment – it is minified but its not hard to figure out what is going on).

[Update:]

As per the schedule, the pac-man game was removed after about 48 hours.
