Google Maps Will Now Turn Any Street Into a Playable Pac-Man Level

No joke.

April Fools’ day isn’t until tomorrow, but Google has added a silly new feature to maps early: play Pac-Man on any streets you please.

Pictured below is the end of the street I grew up on—because who wouldn’t want to play a giant game of Pac-Man on their childhood neighborhood streets—but you can navigate anywhere on Google Maps and roll over the new Pac-Man button to select an area to play. Bonus: it’s way easier than setting up an actual giant game of Pac-Man, and you don’t have to clear all those little dots out of the road when cars are coming.

Please, more April Fools’ jokes that result in actual fun like this one.
