Google Maps Goes 8-bit!

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!

[UPDATE: APRIL 2, 2012] It seems this 8-bit feature has been taken off Google Maps after the weekend and was one of those April Fools jokes. It was a pretty neat feature to have. I’m hoping Google puts it back into their Maps function as a fun way to go about using their maps even though 8-bit maps may not be something that will be used every time someone looks up a location or directions.
