Playing Pac-Man on the Streets of My Home Town on Google Maps
This is so much fun! For April Fool's Day, Google has enabled a Pac-Man that let's us play on any street! Just go to Google Maps. Search for a location in your city, or any city. I went to Capaha Park in Cape Girardeau. Click the little Pac-Man icon at the bottom of the page.
I was confused at first because when Pac-Man went off the edge of the map, I could not get him back! Then I realized he would come in somewhere else on the map on another edge! Ah!
You use your mouse to move Pac-Man around.
Game play notes (for those who have forgotten, like me!):Collect all of the tiny white dots called "pellets" to complete a level
Eat one of the larger "power pellets" to turn the ghosts blue and give you a small amount of time to chase them down and gobble them up
Apparently, I've gotten worse at this game as I've gotten older. Or maybe I was never that good at it!
