PacMap – play your favourite streets in Google Maps’ PacMan feature

Google Maps has released a highly playable PacMan game, effectively enabling users to dodge Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde in a street of their choosing.

By searching a particular area in Google Maps (The Drum recommends gridlocked streets) users can turn the high street into a PacMan level, complete with Pac-Pellets and predatory ghosts.

Upon selecting an area, users can enter PacMan mode by selecting a prompt at the bottom left of the screen.

The feature is part of Google’s annual April Fools Day hoax.
