Google Maps Quest Mode – April Fools!

I managed to catch the latest giggler from the brains at Google, which was a fully functioning, 8-bit version of Google Maps complete with rocky mountains, square trees and cute castles. Thank god I printscreen’d earlier on in the day, it’s no longer on the Google Maps section anymore, although if any of you managed to catch it then I’m sure (like me) you ‘navigated’ for a good few minutes to see what everything looked like. I love the ole games like this (giant floppy disks being inserted into old computers come to mind) and anything like this is just pixel-art greatness!

Here’s the other April Fools jokes which other well-used websites and companies used too, I didn’t manage to spot all of them though! What a nice way to start the week, eh?
