Google Maps goes retro to 8-bit for April Fool's Day
The map below is the 8-bit Google Maps representation of New York City, so you can see exactly what we are talking about here. We're not sure how long Google will leave this up for, but it could be down as soon as Monday morning. If you want to be amused, you might want to check out a number of locations on Sunday.
Continuing the joke, Google released a video touting this new 8-bit Google Maps for NES. For a surefire belly laugh, click on the video below.
