If you haven’t noticed, Google Maps on the computer has the option of going 8-bit for those who want to check it out, especially those who have an affinity for old school/retro graphics! All you need to do is to click the icon in the top right and switch it to Quest!

After the last podcast I just did with Markus, it got me thinking that we should go back to the classic. The talk about Pokemon going back to Generation One (Red,Blue and Yellow) and Two (Gold,Silver and Crystal) as Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and then, I got the idea to play Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES.
