Today's Review: 8 Bit Google Maps

Best April Fools joke ever. Well, perhaps not ever, but certainly this year. There was some tough competition though. We had YouTube's new DVD catalogue mailing service, Firebox's Tentanic, but the ad accompanying this awesome new Google Maps layout is awesome, with all the excited Japanese kids planning routes with their Famicoms. 

But while Google have certainly delivered by allowing you to select the overlay on the Maps website, I would've loved to have the sound effect and 8 bit music while I was searching for my low res landmarks. Oh well, maybe I'll have to wait for the Google store to start selling the cartridge. That's gonna happen, right?

My rating: 4/5
