Google maps introduces PAC-MAN view for April Fool’s Day

If you thought switching your google maps to satellite view was exciting, try the new PAC-MAN view. It’s exactly what it sounds  like.

The Google search giants have brought online interactive maps to a new level. Users can type in virtually any address into the Google Maps search bar and click the PAC-MAN option to view the streets as a PAC-MAN game level and actually play the game using any street of their choice.

The PAC-MAN view was introduced on Google Maps in celebration of April Fool’s Day, but it is no joke.

For those who don’t know what PAC-MAN is, it’s a highly-addictive game where a yellow-ball character follows paths with the objective of swallowing pellets and avoiding ghost-shaped enemies.

Say goodbye to productivity and try your luck on the streets of downtown Toronto and eat your way past the Eaton Centre.
