There are many interactive Google Doodle games out there, many of which celebrate a particular holiday or important person. Here are just a few of the Google Doodle games that we enjoyed in 2017.
Valentine’s Day 2017
This Valentine’s Day-inspired game is about a pangolin that travels to Ghana, India, China, and the Philippines. He wants to express his love to his sweetheart and devises many ways to show how much he cares for her. Roll the pangolin through each country using the arrows on your keyboard, and jump over obstacles by clicking on the up arrow.
Celebrating 50 Years of Kids Coding
December 4, 2017
This Google Doodle commemorates the 50th anniversary of the introduction of kids’ programming language. This fun game has you arrange pieces to move a bunny along different stages. It’s an easy program that allows kids to understand the basics of programming and what it consists of.
ICC Champions Trophy 2017
June 1, 2017
Google celebrates the 2017 ICC Championship Trophy by allowing users to play their tap-and-click game. Play the game as a cricket and hit the baseball as a cricket. You just use your finger to slide down on the wicket to hit the ball. This was a nice fun way to celebrate the ICC Championship.
June 22, 2017
This Doodle celebrates the 117th birthday of Oskar Fischinger. He was a German-American animator, filmmaker, and painter known for creating abstract musical animation before computer graphics and music videos were popular. Here, Google put out a Doodle that lets you create music. Tap the different shapes to create different sounds as you click.
44th Anniversary of the Birth of Hip Hop
August 11, 2017
This Doodle celebrates the anniversary of the birth of hip hop. In 1973, at just age 18, a Jamaican-American DJ named Kool Herc threw a back-to-school jam in the Bronx, New York. He didn’t play full songs; he just played their instruments in sections. His friend got the crowd excited with just a microphone. Thus, hip hop was born. This Doodle allows players to scratch different records by tapping and clicking on the corresponding buttons and records.
Google is very creative when it comes to celebrating holidays or acknowledging so many people who have made history. Giving its users something special for every occasion just makes you appreciate the little things. These are some of the coolest Doodle games I personally missed this year.
