Prepare your mouse-clicking finger for what might be the best collaboration since Madonna, Britney and Christina Aguilera snogged live on stage – Google Maps has transformed into an interactive and completely playable version of Pac-Man, and it’s bloody brilliant. You can take the yellow-faced protagonist to your local high street, New York’s Time Square, or hop right over to Niagara Falls and run riot in those streets too. Basically, wherever Google can go, you can play.
We’re not quite sure why everybody’s favourite mapping service has momentarily transformed into a global arcade machine – just for fun? Is it April Fool’s day in California already? – but we’re not taking any chances when it comes to looking gift horses in the mouth. I’m dedicating the next hour to eating cherries and escaping tiny baddies in the streets of Tokyo, helped by Google’s handy guide to the best places to play. I’ll be back on my emails later.
