Google added PAC-MAN as its logo on the 30th anniversary of the game and due to huge popularity, the search engine giant has decided to keep it up online permanently.
Google said in a blog post, "We've been overwhelmed - but not surprised :) - by the success of our 30th anniversary PAC-MAN doodle. Due to popular demand, we're making the game permanently available at http://www.google.com/pacman. "
