Google Maps lets you play ‘Snake’ on the app for April Fools’ Day

Remember Snake? It’s back and in Google Maps form!

Google is temporarily adding a version of the classic game Snakes into its Google Maps app for April Fools’ Day this year, according to The Verge.

Snake is an iconic Nokia game first introduced on the Nokia 6110 in 1997. You can play it on the iOS and Android versions of the Google Maps app. Just touch the sidebar option on the left of the search bar and you’ll see the “Play Snake” option.

If the option doesn’t show up for you, try closing and reopening the Maps app. Instead of a snake, though, you’ve got to move a train around the location of your choice. You can choose between Cairo, Tokyo, Sydney, San Francisco, London, São Paulo or the entire world.

The objective of the game is to pick up as many passengers as you can on your train while not hitting yourself or the side of the map.

Google said in a blog post that the game will be available for a week on the app, but the browser version will be available much longer after April Fools’ is over.
