Popular Google Doodle Games: Google is currently running its ‘Stay and Play at Home with Popular Past Google Doodles’ initiative. Under which it is bringing back some of its most popular interactive Google doodle games for its users to experience. With this initiative, the company wants its users to stay entertained while self quarantining at home.
Google has published nine interactive gaming doodles to date. One doodle game remains to be published under this initiative.
The first doodle under this initiative was ‘Coding Carrots‘, the second one was ‘Cricket‘, the third one was ‘Fischinger‘, the fourth one was ‘Rockmore‘, the fifth one was ‘Garden Gnome‘, the sixth is ‘Scoville’, the seventh one is Loteria, the eighth one is ‘Halloween 2016‘ and the ninth one is ‘Hip Hop‘.
Users can access all of these doodles from the archives bar that appears at the bottom of the current day’s doodle. If you like playing all of these and want to try out more interactive doodle games, you can head over to the Google Doodle archives, where you will be able to find some very popular interactive doodles. Apart from playing with these doodles, you can also read their description to know the history behind them and why they were created.
If you are heading over to the doodle archives, you need to definitely play the ’30th Anniversary of PAC-MAN’ doodle. It was created back in 2010 to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of PAC-MAN. It is basically the PAC-MAN game that you used to play in your childhood, with the Google logo in the centre.
Inside of the Coding Carrots game, users have to put in a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) code, to make the rabbit move and collect carrots. This is a game that will help users understand the basics of coding and if the users like it, they can start checking out some coding tutorials to see if that is what they want to do.
The Cricket doodle is fairly simple. You just have to press the bat icon, when the snail throws the ball and the cricket (insect) will then hit it and start taking runs. Your aim is to score as many runs as possible.
With the help of the Fischinger doodle, you can create your own background music, by placing notes on to an instrument that keeps on playing. It allows you to create music with four different instruments at a time. You can also share your creation with your friends and family.
The Rockmore doodle allows you to create music with the help of a gesture-controlled instrument, called Theremin.
Garden Gnome is a fun little game that lets you toss garden gnomes across a garden, which then plant trees. Your target is to get the best coverage when you throw the gnome to plant the most number of trees.
Scoville is an interactive doodle game that makes you learn about chillies alongside a fun little game in which you have to freeze the chillies by throwing ice cream on it. If you fail, the chillies will burn your character and end the game.
Loteria is a Mexican game of chance, which was taught to us and played online by Google back in 2019. It is similar to how Indians play Tambola and the popular game called Bingo from the US. This is also the first doodle in the series, to group people together to compete with each other.
As of now, Google is yet to reveal the last interactive Google doodle game. Post ‘Stay and Play at Home with Popular Past Google Doodles’ initiative Google might bring in a new initiative to tackle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The new Halloween 2016 doodle is somewhat like a Harry Potter. You are a wizard cat that has to perform special spells to kill ghosts before they kill you. It is a fun game and has five levels that you need to cross. With each level the difficulty increases.
Google’s ninth doodle under this initiative is the ‘Hip Hop’ doodle from back in 2017. It celebrates the 44th anniversary of a 1973 party at which DJ Kool Herc created hip hop’s distinctive sound. The doodle lets you know about the whole back story via an animated illustration of Fab 5 Freddy at the start of the game. Inside of the game, you can shuffle through various records and try making hip hop tunes using them.
