CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Just in time for April Fools Day Wednesday, Google has unveiled a fun gimmick and potentially a serious time drain.

Users who go to Google Maps will suddenly see a Pac-Man icon in the bottom left. Clicking that button turns a map of downtown Charleston, Summerville, Mount Pleasant or anywhere else in the Lowcountry into a Pac-Man video game.

The game functions the same way the classic arcade game did, and even allows users to move across diagonal streets by pressing combinations of the arrow keys.

According to the Google Maps blog site, the Pac-Man game overlay works on desktop and on the latest versions of Google Maps on Android and iOS.

Go to Google Maps here and look for the Pac-Man icon to play: https://www.google.com/maps/
