Google logo themes usually make me smile… this one went above and beyond. I dig how they not only decided to integrate the logo into the Pac Man game UI but also made it fully functional!
The best part: instead of the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button… it’s an “Insert Coin” button that reloads the game.
The little things are what make stuff like this awesome.
