You can play Ms. Pac-Man in Google Maps

Posted April 01, 2017

Google is giving its users a treat for April Fool's Day. Upon opening the Google Maps app, there should be a pink Ms. Pac-Man icon in the bottom right of the app.

Google has a long history (relatively speaking) with Pac-Man. For example, search "do a barrel roll" and the screen will do a 360-degree turn, in honor of the classic Nintendo series Star Fox.

Pac-Man right now! Seriously, Ms. Pac-Man was way better than the original. And now, they've gone back to the retro gaming well, although this time you can actually play!

Ford recalls 440K vehicles for fire risk, door latch trouble
Under the recall, a spring in the side door latch could break, which could cause the door to open while the vehicle is in motion. Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 111 2017 Ford Edge vehicles for missing windshield header welds.

You can also chose new locations to play like Los Angeles or Paris, and for the web version, you can pick your own levels beyond just your local streets.

The gameplay is pretty much exactly as you remember it, though since your laptop/smartphone doesn't have a joystick, you use the arrow keys to move around - and by combining two different arrows, you can move diagonally.

Pac-Man, the arcade game, was first released in May 1980.

It's worth noting that other recipes for homemade "slime" call for using corn starch or liquid starch, instead of Boric acid. Kathleen Quinn, 11, landed in the hospital after attempting to make homemade slime at her house in Rockland, Massachusetts.

Obviously, playing on a mobile device within Google Maps leaves something to be desired if you're used to arcade controls.

The game features the red-bow, lipstick-wearing version of Pac-Man, chased by four ghosts as she gobbles up pellets.
