Google is celebrating April fool’s day by letting users play the iconic Pac-Man game on its Google Maps service.

Every year, the tech giant puts out a bunch of prank videos and Easter eggs, however, it now seems that the team is revisiting an old idea it first tested in 2015.

“Starting now until April 4, you can chomp fruit, avoid ghosts, and collect PAC-Dots along city streets in Google Maps worldwide—all as Ms,” PAC-MAPS product manager David Hendon said in blog post.

To play the game users simply open up the Google Maps service and click on new Pac-Man button that resides in the lower left corner of the screen. Clicking the icon will transform the area into a gaming grid which means players can choose desired locations as a map for the game.
