In the US, they have what they call April Fools Day which happens to be today. For this year, the Google Maps team brought back PAC-MAN as MsPacMaps. Here’s how to play it.
- Go to maps.google.com
- Look at the lower-left corner of the page, click the “Pac-Man” icon besides the “Satellite” icon
- Play the game!
Here’s a tip. The game will use the map area centered in your view. If you want a challenge, look for plenty of curved, zig-zag, circular roads, before clicking the Pac-Man icon.
