How to play Aprils Fools' Pac-Man in Google Maps
Now, you can play Pac-Man in Google Maps on both desktop and mobile.
It's an awesome way to kill some time, so here's how to do it.
First, you simply go to Google Maps and sign in.
Signing in is not required, but who knows?
There might be a leader board.
Next, choose pretty much any destination on the map.
We chose to play at Disneyland.
On the bottom left of the screen, a Pac-Man icon will appear.
Click on Pac-Man and your screen will morph into a playable Google Maps version of Pac-Man.
With sounds, fruits, points, and everything.
[NOISE] The controls are simple, but they make it a little difficult to turn your Pac-Man in the right direction, but it's still a lot of fun to play.
All you have to do is clear the screen of all the pellets and you win.
And you level up.
On the mobile version, Pac-Man is only available in certain locations.
And Google Maps has left a list of hints to help find the tiny pellet eating Pac-Man.
We find him in Times Square.
Once you find an area where Pac-Man is present, you can click the icon in the app and begin swiping in the direction you want Pac-Man to go.
It's actually a bit easier than than the desktop version.
Now this isn't the first time Google Maps has done something like this.
Google loves April Fool's Day pranks and in 2012, Google Maps was morphed into Legend of Zelda mode.
And last year, Pokemen were hiding among the maps for users to find as part of an elaborate April Fool's Day prank.
So that's how to play Pac-Man in Google Maps.
Pac-Man should be available to play for at least a week Thanks for watching.
