Turn Vancouver into a PAC-MAN grid with Google Maps

DH Vancouver Staff Mar 31, 2015 8:59 am

Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde are back and taking over the streets! Google Maps lets you play the classic arcade game PAC-MAN as you swerve the streets of some famous places around the world.

The game will only be around for a little while, so play before it’s too late!

Figure out the best places to play

  • Don’t drop the ball on the eve of your victory!
  • Triumph is délicieux.
  • Does a Galaxian bonus await at the top of those 272 steps?
  • Chomp your way to independence down seven lanes of July.
  • PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN can’t agree on which side is prettier: the American or the Canadian. Which side do you fall on, eh?
  • After a chat with the Sphinx, PAC-MAN sounds more like “Dokki Dokki”.
  • Pause game play to admire Chagall’s stained glass windows and have a bit of chocolate.
  • Can you score 10^(10^100) points?
  • Whether they’re flashing blue or sporting their natural colors, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are always kakkoii. Even Vogue agrees they’re living in the trendiest of neighborhoods.
  • Previous PAC-MAN lives don’t get to rest in a white marble mausoleum.
  • Head to the valley of the sun and earn your grade in the art of the game.
  • How well can you navigate the radiating streets of the distrito federal?
  • Victory is like gothic glockenspiel musik to our ears.
  • Pay special attention to Blinky – he might blend in with the dreaming red kangaroos!
  • You’ll find the Beach PAC-MAN World Cup here before long.
