Google's newest Pacman Doodle is a tribute to the beloved game's enduring popularity among players. The Google Pacman video game franchise has been undivided in the top five of the best-sellers and highest grossing competition series of recent time, producing more than half a billion dollars in worldwide revenue and over $40 million in take-home sales each year.
Although, Pacman is the first game to be included in the Google Doodle collection, the fact is that many other games have been featured in the past, including the popular games like Tetris, Mahjong, and Word. However, it is Pacman which has captured the hearts of fans and been a favorite game on Google Play since 2020. The game is not only highly addictive but is also easy to play. With its addictive playability and simple controls, it is no wonder why Pacman has become such a hit with millions of users around the world.
As a tribute to Pacman, the Google Doodle feature has also been given a makeover, with its features now focusing on more modern games, including sports, comedy, and even trivia. In this case, the Doodle was dedicated to the classic board game Chess, as Google played host to an online Chess tournament, with its top contenders playing a virtual version of the famous game.
Chess has long been a favorite game among computer gamers, as it is extremely challenging to master. As one would expect, the game has long been known as a competitive sport, as it allows for players to engage in strategic moves against one another.
The Google Doodle feature also featured the game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, which are also a favorite among many online gamers. This particular game has become a staple of many board games, being featured in games such as Monopoly, as well as on game consoles, including PlayStation and Nintendo Wii.
Online gaming has long been popular, especially those games which are designed for both casual and multiplayer gaming. Therefore, it is no surprise that Google has now included its own version of the latter in its Doodle.
Chess, which is considered as one of the oldest games in the world, has a long history that dates back over four thousand years. The game, unlike most of its contemporaries, is still being developed and practiced today, making it an interesting and fascinating pastime to enjoy for fans who are fond of history. As a result, the popularity of the game has always transcended age barriers and has made it a perfect fit subject for online games.
This kind of dedication to history is not surprising from Google, considering the fact that it also includes a variety of games related to history. These include the Game of Life, the very first computer game, and the Game of Stones, a game based on a classic Chinese board game.
While Chess is still popular, it may not be long until it is replaced by a new game altogether, thanks to the recent popularity of newer games such as the newer version of the game, Fluxx. However, it is possible to still enjoy chess through other online games such as ChessNet, the popular online game for both chess players and non-chess players alike.
Although ChessNet is one of the most popular games online, Google has also launched a version of the game for those who do not have a computer, which it claims is more suited to the average consumer. With the help of a simple mouse-clicking system, the game is accessible for anyone who can download the software and install it on their personal computer.
This is not all that easy, however, as a player must be acquainted with the rules and must also know the layout of the game to play. This is one way that the company helps to make sure that its games are suitable for players of different skill levels.
Although the game is now available for the general public, it is still best to play through this version on a personal computer. For the best experience, one can consider using a game console, where it is easier to control the pace of the game, since the interface of the online interface is so similar to the original, arcade-style version.
