This is the easiest and fastest way to play a game that is over 35 years old. The method works on any computer device, no matter its performance specs. As long as it has a keyboard with functional arrow keys, you will be able to play PacMan.
Follow the next steps to play Google PacMan:

  1. Start your browser of choice.
  2. Go to Google’s search page.
  3. Type in ‘google pacman’ in the search box.
  4. The first result will be the Google Pacman doodle.
  5. Press ‘Click to Play’
  6. Control PacMan with your arrow keys.

If you haven’t played the game before, the main goal is to eat all the dots spread throughout the level course without being hit by the ghosts chasing you. When you eat the fruit you are able to eat the ghosts instead. They will respawn after a short while so hurry and collect all the dots.
