Just in time for April Fools Day — Pac-Man has invaded Google Maps!

The classic arcade character will traverse the streets in some of the world’s most recognized places, scurrying away from the deadly ghosts with every key stroke.

After five lives have been used, it’s game over and players can choose to share their score and play again.

It’s not the first time Google has built an “Easter egg” into Google Maps. Last year, the search engine giant gave everyone the chance to catch 151 hidden Pokemon for the chance to become Google’s “Pokemon Master.”
