Google Maps Celebrates April Fool's With Twist on Classic 'Snake' Game

Google Maps Celebrates April Fool's With Twist on Classic 'Snake' Game

You'll then be given the choice of seven destinations: Cairo, São Paulo, London, Sydney, San Francisco, Tokyo, or the entire world. Well, let's say that a very improved version of that game can now be played by Android and iOS users directly in Google Maps. The joke Google is making is that Snake-a game that's decades old-is somehow new. The goal of the game is to pick up as many passengers as possible without running off of the map and without colliding with their own vehicle which is a train.

Snake, the iconic Nokia game first introduced on the Nokia 6110 in 1997, has been reimagined for Google Maps in celebration of April Fool's Day. You can also pick up famous landmarks, such as the London Eye, to earn extra points. Scroll down and tap on "Play Snake". You can also play in in your web browser.

You can now play the classic game Snake in the Google Maps app, just by hitting the top left menu button in the app, and selecting the option to play.

Latest Brexit deal defeated, Canadians warned of protests
It must either cancel Brexit, seek a longer delay or leave the European Union bloc without a deal. Author Ian McEwan told us that he would support a second referendum "every minute of the day".

You can play in a number of different cities.

Google Maps' new game can be played on Android, iOS and on desktops.

So instead of a little blue ball, for one whole week, people could choose to be guided by Mario. As with the original version, picking up items (in this case it's passengers) will see your body length increase, and crashing into yourself or the game boundaries will bring proceedings to an end. So this seems to be a bit of an annual tradition, we need Sonic next guys.
