Google Turns Maps Into Pac-Man Levels For April Fools’ Day

To celebrate April Fools’ Day tomorrow, Google has added the option to turn streets on their Google Maps website into a game of Pac-Man. Just search for your street of choice on and click the Pac-Man view on the bottom left.

For example, here’s a game of Pac-Man played around Dame Street in Dublin.


While Irish streets may not have the straight lines you’re used to in games featuring the yellow three-quarter disc man, it’s nonetheless a bit of fun to play the game on streets you know well, so give it a go. Let us know in the comments if you find any really good “levels” based on roads in Ireland.
