For this year’s April Fools’ Day Google treated us to a prank that’s all fun and no groaning or frustration. It’s an awesome new feature called PAC-Maps, a playable Pac-Man version of Google Maps. Think of a location, any location, from the neighborhood you grew up in or where you work to, you know, any mapped place on earth you’d like to visit, and you can turn it into a Pac-Man game screen with the click of a button.

To launch the game, find the desired location in Google Maps and activate the Pac-Man button located in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen next to the Google Earth button, or select the Pac-Man pin on the map when available.

Right now we’re playing Pac-Man around the Archie McPhee store in Seattle. Waka-waka-waka!
