Looks like Ms. Pac-Man has paid a visit to the Google Maps app. Every year on April Fools’ Day, Google puts out a bunch of prank videos and Easter eggs, and it looks like the team is revisiting an old idea for 2017.
To find Ms. Pac-Man, open up your Google Maps app and click on the pink button on the right. Unlike the Pac-Man integration from 2015’s prank, it doesn’t turn your current location into the game level. Instead, you’re taken to a random spot in the world and get five lives to outrun the ghosts.
If you prefer to choose your own location in Google Maps to turn into a Ms. Pac-Man game, the web version does support pick-your-own levels. I personally wish Google did something more original than rehash an idea from a few years back, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be spending the whole day running around the virtual globe.
