HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Folks claim that Hardy Street traffic can sometimes be like a game of Pacman, but thanks to Google Maps, that metaphor can become a reality. 

As an April Fool's Day joke, Google made some changes to the Maps platform, giving the function an arcade makeover. 

To play, all you have to do is go to Google Maps on your computer or mobile device and pick the street you wish to play on.  Then, click the Pacman button in the bottom left corner. We chose in front of the University of Southern Mississippi! 

Start the game by using the arrows keys, and use the neighborhoods to avoid the ghosts! 

If you lose your five lives, you can share your score with other players in your area. 

Remember, have fun and don't let your boss catch you playing! Tweet us your best score with the hashtag #wdampacman.
