Your favorite Google search engine giant is celebrating a very special day on Sunday, his birthday! The brainchild of PhD students Larry Page and Sergey Brin from Stanford University and founded in September 1998, it brings us (literally) a world of information in just a few clicks.
To celebrate his special birthday, Google Doodle on September 27 features a blue G logo wearing a birthday hat and sitting in front of his laptop, on a video call with his oogle buddy.
Doodles make an interesting point when people in the unprecedented day mode celebrate special occasions through virtual get-togethers.
While we enjoy the usual doodles that offer a wealth of information about people, places, and events around the world, there are a host of interactive games perfect for spending some time.
Let’s face it, there’s nothing better than some time doodling when you wait for the next office mail to arrive and before it overwhelms you with a truckload of work, we suggest you accept Google’s offer.
Some of these games are over 10 years old, so expect to feel nostalgic when checking out.
The Rubik’s Cube was the google doodle on May 19, 2014. It takes some time to get a handle on the digital cube pieces and one can tap to turn the cube all around and move the pieces around. The doodles were a tribute to Hungarian inventor and architecture professor Erno Rubik. Play the game here.
For crossword lovers, Google celebrated its 100th anniversary with its launch on December 21, 2013. For the love of words, nerds can now dive into the puzzle by clicking on it to fill in clues. Play the game here.
For all retro fans, this game is all you need to lift the nostalgia factor. This doodle was launched on the 30th anniversary of the arcade game on May 21, 2010. You have to direct Pac-Man around the map, devouring all the Pac-Dots you can. Play it here.
