Pac-Man Google Maps

Google is always coming up with quirky ways of sprucing up their services, and their latest project is PAC-Maps. This turns any Google Maps view into a playable game of Pac-Man, and to launch it, just find the desired location and activate the game by pressing a button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen next to the Google Earth button. Or, just select the Pac-Man pin on the map where available. Try it out here. For those who don’t have access to Google Maps for whatever reason, continue reading to see what it looks like when played on a smartphone using the app.

Google Maps Pac-Man

With local place information and Street View, it’s easier than ever before to find where you’re going but there’s never been anything to let you know where *not* to go.

With this update, we’ve added imagery of dangerous virtual beings, starting with Pinky, Blinky, Inky and Clyde. When navigating fruit-filled streets, determine at a glance which turns to pass to evade ghosts and get where you’re going safely.

When you’re feeling a bit peckish, you can simply gobble up a few pac-dots or a cherry and keep on nommin’.
