Ms. Pac Map

Ms. Pac Man’s just exiting from the Bay Bridge.

This year’s Google April Fool’s joke, or at least one of them, is an implementation of Ms. Pac-Man in Google Maps.

Navigate to an area on your phone, tap the Ms. Pac Man icon, and you’ll see the city streets re-drawn as a Pac-Man maze, complete with pellets, power-ups, and ghosts. It’s a fully playable game, and I enjoy imagining ghosts running rampant through the streets of my town.
