They’ve done it before (and they can do it as often as they like as far as we’re concerned), but in honour of April Fools’ Day, Google have added Ms. Pac-Man to Google Maps.

Open up the Google Maps app on your smartphone, for example, and you will be greeted with a Ms. Pac-Man icon to start playing the game immediately on the actual map itself.

Better yet, you can choose where you want to play it on the map, whether it be in the area surrounding your own home, or fancy far-flung destinations such as New York or Paris.
