Google Turns Maps into Pac-Man for April Fool’s Day
Google loves April Fool’s Day. The search engine giant always has something fun up its sleeve when it comes to pranks. And Google knows what makes a good gag: simple, clever and harmless. Of course, when you have the vast resources of Google, you can do pretty much whatever you want. Like turning Google Maps into a fully playable Pac Man game. Have you tried it yet?
For the rest of April 1st, there’s a small black box in the corner of Maps. Click it and Pac Man will appear, wandering the streets that you’ve searched for, gobbling pellets and avoiding ghosts.
When you get your fill of playing Pac Man literally anywhere on the planet (though areas with lots of intersections work best), you can relax with a simple search at com.google. Google calls it a “change in perspective.”
