April Fools' Day: How to unlock Google Maps' Snake game

April Fools' Day: How to unlock Google Maps' Snake game

Just open a browser window and type "snake", "play snake", "snake game" and "snake video game", which all result in a modernized version of the game being available right in the browser window.

As much as you would like to think of this as an April Fools' story, it's not. The goal of the game is to pick up as many passengers as possible without running off of the map and without colliding with their own vehicle which is a train. This year Google has decided to make Maps the main platform of its gag.

Simply referred to as Google Maps Snake, the April Fools' Day gag game also has bonus items that appear on maps that add 5 to 10 additional bonus points instead of the single point you get by picking each passenger.

The first step to being able to play snake in Google maps is downloading the latest version of the app that includes the game.

He said: "His bottle went and he did some disgusting things that have not place in the boxing ring". Price slammed his opponent, saying the bite came as a result of Ali being on the verge of defeat.

"Google Maps shows you how to get around on foot, car, train and bicycle, and now, you can ssslither to your destination too", Omar Abdelaziz, Product Manager of Google Maps, said in an official statement.

Desktop users can try the same by heading over to the standalone website created for the game. You can choose between Cairo, São Paulo, London, San Francisco, Sydney, Tokyo, or the entire world map.

Google says Snake feature will be live in the Android and iOS app for about a week.
