You Can Play Ms. Pac-Man On Google Maps Until April 4

In 2012, Google made it look like Google Maps was done in an 8-bit style. Whip out your phone, open up Google Maps, and you'll see a little icon of Ms. Pac-Man on the right side of your screen. And with games like these on its apps, Google never fails to amaze us.

Ms Pac-Man is available to play online and through an updated version of the iOS and Android mobile apps. You can also sign in to your Google account to save your top score on a leaderboard and share it with friends.

April 1st is tomorrow, so it's only natural for the web to start the eruption of pranks and gags everywhere. You can then use the arrow buttons on PC or swipe on the screen on your smartphone in order to control Ms. Pac-Man. Getting a head start on the fun, Google has placed Ms. Pac-Man on the Google Maps similar to what they did previous year.

Google is known for adding date-appropriate surprises to its search interfaces, and April Fools Day is no exception.

Both games are virtually the same, except Ms Pac-Man has the trademark pink bow and a different theme tune. It now just puts a random location from any part of the world.

Google last pulled off this "prank" back in 2015, and this year's revival is in keeping with the same formula. However, only desktop users will get to choose their location. The app generates a dark background and turns the roadways into pathways for Ms. Pac-Man to navigate in order to avoid the meaning ghosts.
