Google celebrates Pac-Man's 30th anniversary with playable logo
21 Apr 2010 - Tags: Turn off Pacman on Google | Turn off Pacman on Google Home Page | Pacman on Google : A playable ... logo? That's exactly what web giant Google has today, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man's Japanese release. The doodle (Google's term for its event and holiday-specific logos) is accessible on its main page and is a full 255-level game complete with a 256th level "kill screen," just like the original coin-op.
The interactive doodle -- a first for Google -- is the brainchild of senior user experience designer Marcin Wichary, whose earliest exposure to Pac-Man came at age five while traveling across his native Poland with his father, a game technician, to repair arcade machines. Wichary worked with Google doodler (yes, it's a real job) Ryan Germick to create the finished design.
So, for today at least, you can tell your boss: "I may be browsing the web and playing a game, but I'm also being part of something historic." NOW SEE HOW TO: how to disable the pacman on google page! Disabling pacman on google.
Turn off Pacman on Google
Solution 1: Firefox and Safari users are complaining about the annoying sound and most people can't find a way to disable it. Just disable "Cool Previews| from Tools/Add-Ons on Firefox and PacMan Sound is gone for good. Update: The Cool Preview developers have updated their extension and say that the bug has been fixed in the new version which can be downloaded from their homepage. Click Here
Solution 2: Set your homepage to http://www.google.com/firefox. At least you get a static FF logo instead of a whiny Pac Man POS.
