Google Maps 8-bit QUEST View- 03.31.12

map0.jpg So. FUN. I can barely stop looking up random places on the map. Everything from giant Androids to t-rex skeletons and flamingos to eames houses and more… For a super amusing April Fool’s come early, Google Maps has gone 8-bit QUEST View! Complete with silly video introduction about how to play it on your NES with cartridge (which may need blowing to fix problems) and all. The little guy is my favorite ~ too cute in all of his various angles. Take a peek at screenshots, fun finds, and the video on the next page!

p.s. I feel like the only thing missing is a soundtrack playing while you go on your quest!
