Pac-Man comes to Google Maps ahead of April Fools’ – Chicago Tribune

As if finding excuses to not be productive at work were needed, the folks at Google made goofing off on your computer that much easier.

As a joke, or not, Pac-Man has been integrated into the popular Google Maps ahead of April Fools’ Day.

Check this out from the Chicago Tribune.

We interrupt this regularly scheduled work day to bring you a very clever distraction, courtesy of Google.

Google Maps is playing an April Fool’s Joke a little early by allowing users to play Pac-Man directly in the program. Pac-Man can run through the streets of any city you choose, dodging ghosts and collecting fruit with the guide of your computer keyboard.

The Pac-Man game is an option at the bottom of the screen next to the option for satellite view. It’s unclear how long it will stay.

Google employs practical jokes every year on April Fools’ Day, and it featured an interactive Pac-Man game for its Google Doodle in 2010, the game’s 30th anniversary.
