Enjoy A Quick Game of PAC-MAN on Google Maps

And the year of Pac-Man continues! It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or where you’re going, because today on Google Maps there’s a little Easter Egg that has the potential to stop you dead in your tracks. Today, you can indulge in a game of Pac-Man straight from your web browser, using anywhere with roads as your playground. If you go to Google maps right now, you’ll notice a Pac-Man icon on the bottom-left side of your screen, like this:

Okay, so not the most ideal place to start a Pac-Man campaign. It really didn’t take much for the ghosts to corner me in this area of Google Maps. If the game was this difficult in Burbank, I can only imagine how tough it would be to play this anywhere in Boston. It’d be like playing Bloodborne with a blindfold on!
