With Google Maps Becoming Pac-Man for April Fool's, Here Are 10 Dallas Neighborhoods To Play.
In case you haven't heard, the geniuses at Google went and dropped the coolest April Fool's Day surprise of 2015 — and maybe ever — by offering up an option in which Google Maps users can toggle over and play Pac-Man on the real-life streets of the world.
So how does Dallas look in the world of Pac-Man? Like something of a mess, really. With only a handful of exceptions, it turns out that very few Dallas streets run on a direct North-South or East-West line, thus making traversing the city kind of nightmarish for our hero.
This isn't to say that Dallas doesn't boast some super-interesting Pac-Man levels, though, because it definitely does. Below, we look at ten fun neighborhoods/levels worth playing for yourself.

Hey, roundabouts are a nightmare in Pac-Man's world, too!
So many surface lots!
HOLY HELL, DEATH STAR.
