Why wait for April Fools? This text prank is guaranteed to elicit a response from your mom - whether or not she disowns you for stupidity is another story.
Google is celebrating April Fool’s Day a little early.
A new option on Google Maps lets you turn the world into a playable game of Pac-Man.
From the support page:
Welcome, Player 1! You can now play the classic arcade game PAC-MAN in Google Maps with streets as your maze. Avoid Blinky, Pinky, Inky, (and Clyde!) as you swerve the streets of some famous places around the world. But eat the pac-dots fast, because this game will only be around for a little while.
You can plan anywhere with enough streets by clicking the icon in the bottom left corner of the screen, but Google also offers some clues to the best locations where a special Pac-Man marker has already been place.
You can expect the entire Internet to be flooded with April Fool’s Day pranks like this on Wednesday.
It says the game will only be available for a limited time, but hopefully they decide to keep the Pac-Man hack as a permanent option.
It’s like the new movie “Pixels,” only in real life.
