8-bit Google Maps
Google’s April Fools’ Day pranks are usually pretty epic, and this year’s was no different.
For April Fools’ Day 2012, Google previewed an 8-bit version of its Google Maps service, designed for the old-school NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). This version of Google Maps is no longer up, but it was available via the regular Google Maps website, using the “Quest” button in the top right corner.
What was even cooler is that this 8-bit version of Google Maps also had some fun Easter Eggs hidden inside it.
