Namco/Google Help Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of PAC-MAN

Namco Network is going all out to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the yellow icon himself, PAC-MAN, with a contest, plenty of deals and a little help from Google!

Fans can go to the official PAC-MAN website and see all of the special events to celebrate the anniversary of the yellow ball that started it all. Gamers can enter a contest to win a PAC-MAN themed smart car – because even PAC-MAN is going green, download and play a PAC-MAN flash game, purchase PAC-MAN for 99 cents with the purchase of other Namco titles, and even purchase PAC-MAN apparel for 10% off.

Google has joined in the celebration as well. This weekend you can go to the Google homepage and play PAC-MAN in the Google banner. Just hit the insert coin button, next to the search button, and you can kick it old school – using the arrow keys or the WASD controls on your keyboard. Actually, if I have to tell you how to play PAC-MAN you shouldn’t be reading this article and you should throw your gaming console in the street! Happy Anniversary! What are your memories of PAC-MAN? I can remember the Saturday Morning cartoon…actually thinking that far back is making me sleepy…I need a nap.
