How to play Ms. Pac-Man on Google Maps
The game is available on desktop, as well as Android and iOS.

As part of April Fools' Day, Google has Ms Pac-Man chomping fruit, avoiding ghosts and collecting Pac-Dots in Google Maps worldwide.

This is no April Fools' prank, but the game will only last until 4 April on both Android and iOS operating systems.  

To play, open Google Maps and click on the pink Ms Pac-Man icon. This will change the viewing mode to mirror the game layout.

Users have reported that once the game mode is on it will send them to a random location in the world, however some iOS users have been able to select a specific location. Users will have five lives to collect fruit and avoid the ghosts.

Ms Pac-Maps product manager David Hendon said in a blog post that a desktop version is also available: "Click the Ms. PAC-Maps button at the bottom left on desktop, to enter the maze and start chompin'. Sign in to save your top score on the leaderboard and share with friends."
