To commemorate the 30th birthday of the beloved arcade game Pacman, Google has revamped its search page to include a playable game, inside the Google doodle.

Google aren’t shy when it comes to paying its respects to certain public events and occasions and today is no exception. To play the two-player game, the user need to head over to google.com and either double-click the Google doodle to start or click the “Insert Coin” button where “I’m Feeling Lucky” would normally be.

The game was redesigned by Google developers Marcin Wichary and Ryan Germick and is be available for 48 hours. One day of Pacman isn’t enough…is it?!
