Productivity in offices around the world is probably way down today. That's because Google just turned Google Maps into a super fun time waster. Right now, anyone can head over to the digital mapping site and turn any neighborhood grid into a game of Pac-Man.
It sounds like an April Fools' prank, but it's not. Instead of tricking folks, Google decided to create this fun little game. It works just like a normal game of Pac-Man, but instead of the regular game grid, you direct the little yellow character through real city streets.
Adding city maps to the equation can actually make the game a lot more difficult. That's because you've got to deal with odd angles, diagonal streets and dead ends. The Internet is already full of suggestions for the best maps to use when playing Pac-Man.
