It’s April 1, and you know what that means: Time for Google’s annual prank.
This year, Google has a good one. Head over to Google Maps, find a map with a lot of roads (the more oddly shaped, the better), and click on the Pac-Man icon in the lower-left portion of the screen. The map will transform into a classic Pac-Man level.
If you want to give your ghost-fleeing skills a real workout, find a map with a lot of curvy streets densely packed together, such as portions of Boston. If you’d rather rack up the victories that always eluded you in the Pac-Man arcade game, select a map that translates into an easy-to-navigate grid.
We bet people are going to find some crazy maps to play this on.
