Metro Vancouver in Nintendo-style 8-bit Google Map


Google played an April Fools’ prank on Internet users, turning its Google Maps into a world of 8-bit pixels, similar to that of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), or Family Computer that was popular in the 1980s.

Users of Google Maps (maps.google.com) were greeted with a “Start Your Quest” box at the left side of the screen where users can view 8-bit landmarks, “be a hero and explore the world,” and “find hidden monsters.”
