Two years ago to the day, Google dropped a little April Fools’ Day joke by integrating Pac-Man with its own Maps app. This year, the tech giant is reviving the old gag, this time calling upon Ms. Pac-Man for an arcade-inspired throwback. Like its predecessor, the collaboration is a welcome revival for a video game icon and as easy to play as ever: Maps users can simply load up the app or webpage to turn any locale in to a full-blown, playable Ms. Pac-Man map.

Try it out for yourself now on either iOS or Android, or over at google.com/maps .
