Play Ms. Pac-Man On Google Maps

This year it's turning Google Maps into a game of Ms. Pac-Man. The Google Maps phone app will let you transform anywhere into a playable Ms. Pacman stage.

Google is giving its users a treat for April Fool's Day. After that, you'll be able to collect power pellets and run from ghosts up and down familiar streets. Because really, what's April Fool's Day if you can't drag your friends into the gag? It will all be familiar to anyone who has ever played a Pac-Man game.

Warning: It's not the easiest game to play and it's also very addictive.

Check out the game, but don't blame us if you procrastinate at work. Unlike both of its Maps celebrations, the Doodle allowed simultaneous multiplayer, with Player One controlling Pac with the arrow keys on the keyboard, and Player Two controlling Ms. Pac with WASD. It's no stranger to embedding games as part of its Doodle program and elsewhere, from other versions of Pac-Man to a Halloween game, Starcraft and more. Why not do the same thing for Pac-Man?

If you want to take a crack and playing on a map showing the area you actually live in, you'll have to load up Google Maps on your web browser.
