In honor of April Fools’ Day, Google has added a new icon to the Google Maps page that transforms the user’s map into a Pac-Man version of that location—and it’s completely playable right now.

Now, Google Maps can’t transform every city into a playable stage, but it does offer an “I’m Feeling Lucky” option if your chosen area isn’t compatible. The game can be played in Google Maps on desktop computers or mobile devices that have the latest app update for Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android software. This isn’t the first time Google has changed its functionality for a playable Pac-Man plug-in, as it made a Pac-Man themed playable doodle for the game’s 30th anniversary. Among other things, Google previously has promised to introduce search by smell, provide a translation tool for animals and posted notices for jobs on the moon.
