Welcome to the enchanted land of Los Angeles.

Google's April Fools Day action is the release of an "8-bit Quest Maps" feature to Google Maps. But before you rewind your mind, consider the "upgrade" carefully, jokes Google, as your system "may not meet the requirements for 8-bit computations," notes PC Mag

Have fun storming the castle.
