Pac-Man, the arcade classic, turns 30

Pac-Man, the arcade video game, was released in Japan 30 years ago this week. The game came to the U.S. in the fall of 1980 and became a pop-culture sensation. Pac-Man spawned more than 400 products, from bed sheets to breakfast cereal. In 1999, a Florida man became the first to achieve a perfect Pac-Man score — 3,333,360

And now, you can play at Google.com! Click the “Insert Coin” button for two-player. Your arrow keys on the right-hand side control Pac-Man, and the W-A-S-D (first person shooter games, anyone?) controls Ms. Pac-Man.
