Google Maps looks a little bit different today. As part of an April Fools gag, users can now play Ms. Pacman on real city streets.




The vintage arcade game has a new twist, as real city streets are not laid out on a perfect grid.

Google did the same thing back in 2015.

To play from your phone, open up the Google Maps app and tap the pink circle with Ms. Pacman in the middle.

From a desktop computer, click the black square on the bottom left. Move Ms. Pacman with the arrow keys, collect the pac-dots and avoid the ghosts.

It has multiple levels, so when you get past level one, there are more ghosts and more pac-dots to collect.

If you needed something to pass the time at work today, you're welcome.
