Google Pac-Man WordPress Plugin

| 20 Comments

I was bored today and decided to create a quick WordPress plugin that I have been wanting to do for ages. Google celebrated Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary by showing the Pac-Man doodle on its front page for 48 hours. Now you can embed the same mini game into your blog with a simple shortcode.

Just include [pacman] into your post and it will result in:

It even has the original sound! Sweet :) Use the arrow keys to move the pac-man around and click the link twice to include a 2nd player (which uses the A,S,W,D keys to move around). And yes, I know it’s a complete waste of time, but it’s a fun waste of time and it brings back some great memories.

Download the plugin from the WordPress.org plugin site.

Enjoy!

It's great @themergency !! But could you telle me how I can make de width of the Pacman-game a little bit smaller. It's now over my right sidebar.

Thanks a lot!

What a great "blast from the past". I "forced" my daughter to create a blog (since she spends so much time on the net) and I found your plugin and added it to her page--finally something we can both enjoy! Thanks so much and we are sending a donation pronto!

Great idea for a plugin. May have to find somewhere to put it.

How about the next version letting you put your own text instead of Google... :-D

Awesome! Thank you for this. Is there an easy adjustment to the code to choose if you want the sound or not?

 @Sally_Oh Either remove the shortcode from your page or deactivate the plugin

hi George - just delete the file "pacman10-hp-sound.swf" located in the folder "..\wp-content\plugins\google-pac-man\swf\"

I am hoping to add a plugin options page in the next version.
