Google Turns Their Maps Into a 3D Maze Game To Promote Google+

Social gaming was a big part of Facebook's success, so in a continued effort to get more people using Google+, the search giant has created a promo video for an upcoming game that turns their maps into a playable labyrinth.

I actually adore these types of maze games, and they're particularly fun on motion sensitive devices like the iPhone. But they usually have you directing a small ball towards an ultimate goal. The only objective I can see here is fulfilling Google's desire to boost Google+'s user-base. So in the end the only real winner is Google itself as it attempts to play catchup to Facebook. That still sounds fun right? [Google Maps via Mashable]

"The only objective I can see here is fulfilling Google's desire to boost Google+'s user-base."

So what's wrong with that, should that be the objective? Isn't that facebook or twitter's objective? To keep those who are on, on longer and to pull in new users. You make it sound negative if Google does it.
