Finally! The 8-bit version of Google Maps is here
Yesterday was a fine day for joking and prank-pulling – yes it was April Fool’s Day, although it turns out that our Mof actually IS pregnant with twins. Wow – congratulations mate – now we know why you’ve been eating nothing but sprouts and charcoal for the past three weeks.
But our favourite April Fool gag came courtesy of Google, who used the special day ‘o’ laughter to launch their new 8-bit version of Google Maps, with this demonsration video that shows how your trusty Nintendo NES can now run the global mapping system.
For the small handful of you who DON’T have a Nintendo NES, you can check out the 8-bit Google Maps by visiting the site and clicking on the ‘Quest’ link. Impressive stuff.
