8-bit Google maps

A hacker made a nine-year-old Google April Fool’s joke a reality. In 2012, Google “released” an 8-bit version of Google Maps as one of the company’s then-annual April Fool’s Day jokes.

There was a low-res 8-bit style of Google Maps to play with, but the company didn’t deliver on its promise of a cartridge you could pop in your old Nintendo Entertainment System. Nine years later, someone has figured out how to pull this off.
