If you love Copenhagen and are also a fan of the classic computer game Pacman, you’ve just hit the jackpot.

The US IT giant Google has launched a new game-mode possibility that allows the users of their Google Maps service to play Pacman on the map of Copenhagen.

The Pacman opportunity was released yesterday, allowing users to devour the yellow dots as Pacman while being chased by the four ghosts down the streets around the Kings Gardens.

Hints and challenges
Users can also play the game on maps in other cities, including Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong and Bangkok. Google has posted a number of hints to the location of some of the hidden challenges in the game.

It’s not the first time that Google has been up to such shenanigans. Last April 1, Google Maps changed Google Maps to a Pokémon where users could catch the characters.
