In case you didn't know, Doodle on Google are small tributes made by the company on some commemorative dates. Thus, the company logo on the Google homepage ends up turning into something different, like a photo, video or even a hidden Google game. Most games can be found on the Google Doodles page. Check out some of them:
One of Google's most popular games is soccer, released in 2012. The game simulates a penalty shootout where you control the goalkeeper and need to defend penalties. You use the arrow keys to control the character and space to defend by jumping. The more charged balls you defend, the more time you have to play.
This Doodle was created to celebrate Garden Day in Germany. A legend of the country says that the gnomes bring protection and good luck, so it is common to find small statues of them on the lawns of the country. Thus, this was the theme chosen by Google to commemorate the day.
Your objective in the game is simple, you need to throw the gnomes using a catapult as far as you can. You control the catapult's movements just by pressing the spacebar on your keyboard. The secret of the game is to press at the right time, not too late and not too early. In this way, the gnome will be able to go further and further.
Perhaps one of the most interesting and educational on the list. Doodle celebrates 50 years since the first time a child had access to the programming language. The objective of the game is to teach, in a simple and playful way, the first steps of the language and the programming process.
The protagonist of the game is a rabbit and, as a player, you need to use the code blocks so that he can get the carrots.
By doing this, a trail will be set up for the rabbit to reach its goal and you need to set up the correct trail so that it doesn't get lost. As you might expect, the game level increases every time you level up. There will be blocks of code specific to each action you want to take.
Of course, a Valentine's Day game could not be missing from Doodles. The 2022 game has two scaly anteaters (Pangolins) as protagonists, it is worth noting that these are the only mammals with scales in the world. At the time, the game also sought to address the trafficking of these animals.
The player's objective is to escape obstacles with the characters, collect flowers and objects, in addition to several other missions. The message that the game sends at its end is that spending time with the people you love is the true gift anyone can want.
Magic cat academy
To celebrate Halloween in 2022, the game chosen was Magic Cat Academy. As its name suggests, the protagonist of the game is a cat and, with five stages in total, the story takes place in a school of witches and the cat itself is also one of the witches.
To pass the level, you must defeat each of the ghosts. You do this by drawing on the screen the symbols that each of the ghosts have in their heads. Due to having multiple enemies, sequels will sometimes be required.
