01 April, 2017, 01:33 | Author: Sam Montgomery

In what is sure to lower workplace productivity on Friday afternoon, Google Maps is now allowing users to play Ms. Pac-Man on their phones.

The search-engine giant offered a Pac-Man version of the game in 2015 to mark April Fools' Day.

Once the change happens, you can collect power pellets and run from ghosts up and down any street you want.

"Ms. Pac-Man" has had a slightly uncomfortable position in the Pac world.

You'll get 5 lives to play with, and the game progresses as you remember, with a different fruit on each level (along with the inexplicable pretzel).

Functionality wise, it's not the easiest to play - and navigating roundabouts with the swipe controls is far from straightforward. Originally featuring the title character "Crazy Otto", the board was bought and reproduced by Midway Games, the US distributor of the original "Pac-Man", with Otto giving way to a feminized Pac sprite and pastel color schemes.
