Google’s 8-bit April FoolsApril 10th, 2012
Google topped online April Fools pranks this year with its Google Maps 8-bit version designed for Nintendo.
A video was released that promoted a new Google Maps cartridge for NES (Nintendo Entertainment Systems) and also announced that the 8-bit version would be available for online trial on Google Maps.
Featuring the old school low-res graphics, simple and intuitive controls and the timeless soundtrack that we all fondly remember, the Google Maps 8-bit version was a hit.
