Famous Indian Places Turned Into PAC-MAN Arenas In Google Maps Is Game Heaven

On April Fool’s Day, Google Maps introduced a very unique thing to their highly helpful product. That slight tweak turned some of the most famous places of the world into a PAC-MAN arena – the renowned video game.

Not because it is in India, but one look at the interface is enough to tell you that perfectly square Taj Mahal makes the most traditional arena for playing PAC-MAN.

Google Maps did not reveal the names of the places but dropped clues to make the curious gamer find the location. You may read this post to know all of them.

The best thing about this is that the PAC-MAN game interface is applicable on the entire Google Map universe. It means you can go to any location of your choice and, if it has enough roads, click on the PAC-MAN box at the bottom left of the map page to turn it into an arena.

So we explored nine famous Indian places and discovered that they made for challenging PAC-MAN arenas.

We found that you cannot play in places such as Char Minar in Hyderabad. And others such as Sun Temple in Konark do not make for a smooth playable arena. Why don’t you explore your favourite places and see if they turn into PAC-MAN arena?
