April Fools Day 2015 : Pranks by Tech Giants Round Up

It’s that Day of the Year Again! The Internet is Exploding with April Fools Pranks, so I thought of Collecting the Pranks from the Major Companies and laying it out on this post. So get ready to see some Hilarious and Fun Pranks.

I will be updating this post as more pranks get added. Check back later for more.


1) Pac-Man on Google Maps

Google is giving us a Treat and allowing us to play Pac-Man on Google Maps for the April Fools day.

To experience it, Just visit Google Maps on the Web and click on the little Pac-Man icon on the bottom left on the screen. Google will render a level based on the center of your map and use the roads to render a level. If the map selection isn’t suitable for gameplay, Google will let you select a new area, or you can just click “I’m feeling lucky” to be transported to a pre-selected area. You can then control the game with the keyboard.

Pac-Man is also on Google Maps for Android and iOS.

Click here to Visit Google Maps on the Web to Experience it.

Here are some Screenshots.
