Google turned to our childhood friend, Pac-Man, to help all those lost, foolish souls navigate their way around — just for April 1, that is.

As part of its barrage of April Fools’ pranks, Google Maps has created a hack that lets users turn any city into the pixelated, classic arcade game, complete with multi-colored ghosts and iconic music. Simply click on the icon on the lower left of the screen to begin playing in your desktop browser.

Google Maps’ support page even includes a list of clues to guide you to the best locations to play Pac-Man. You can even play in the Google Maps mobile app, but only in those special locations.

This isn’t the first time Google has relied on a childhood videogame for April Fools’ inspiration. Last year, users could catch Pokemon via Maps.
