Not An April Fools’ Prank: You Can Play Pac-Man In Google Maps
April Fools’ Day pranks are the absolute worst, and the eighth circle of hell is tech companies that make ostensibly clever ones of their own. But instead of their usual Gmail prank, this year Google is offering one of its best Easter eggs instead: Pac-Man.
All you have to do is fire up Google Maps and you’ll see it in the lower left corner of the screen, next to the Google Earth option. As Kotaku suggests, playing Pac-Man in a grid city like New York is ideal, but given that I suck at beating Pac-Man in my own neighborhood, might as well strike out to the forests of India anyways.
