WASHINGTON — It’s no April Fool’s joke: You can play Ms. Pac-Man on Google Maps until April 4.

For a limited time, the follow-up game to the arcade classic Pac-Man is available on the desktop version of Google Maps, as well as the Android mobile app.

The desktop version allows users to play the game from their current location, while the Android version redirects players to a random part of the world.

Unfortunately, those who wish to play the desktop version from a less road-heavy region will also be redirected to a random location, according to Android Headlines.

It’s not the first time Google injected a bit of the Pac-Man family into Maps.

Two years ago, Google featured the game on Maps just in time for April Fool’s Day.

In 2010, a Doodle version of the game was available for Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary.

Naturally, social media users were pretty excited.

Try your hand at the game on Google Maps.
