    Let the office productivity fall even more.

    If March Madness wasn’t enough of a distraction, people can now play Pac-Man from the convenience of their desks.

    Google Maps introduced a new online rendition of the classic arcade game on Tuesday in celebration of April Fools' Day. Click on the Pac-Man icon in the lower left corner beside the Earth icon, and use your keyboard arrows to move your little yellow man through the maze.

    Not all addresses typed into Google Maps are playable areas. Cities, including New York, N.Y., appear to work best because of the number of roads. Pac-Man can’t play in some rural and suburban areas such as Hoover, Alabama, and Burlington, Massachusetts, because there aren’t enough roads for Pac-Man to get around.

    Click here to try your hand at Pac-Man and see how high a score you can earn. Just make sure your boss isn’t looking.
