As the world reels under a lockdown and the innui reaches a fever pitch – Google Doodle has released a range of popular games online to help folks around the world to grapple with this pandemic-induced lockdown boredom.Through the years, Google has released a classic string of games and minigames on its homepage, all of which have been preserved and archived on the Google Doodle Blog. From 27 April and running for two weeks, Google is launching a new series of ten Doodles, each one a callback to one of the company’s popular games.
As COVID-19 continues to impact communities around the world, people and families everywhere are spending more time at home. In light of this, we’re launching a throwback Doodle series looking back at some of our popular interactive Google Doodle games!
Top 5 most popular Doodle games1. The first day’s featured popular Google Doodle game, “Coding for Carrots,” dates back to 2017, and originally celebrated the 50th anniversary of Logo. The game lets you create simple combinations of commands that will tell your rabbit how to collect the carrots on each level. 2. Celebrating the 117th birthday of Oskar Fischinger, this Doodle gives you a simple way to make music with accompanying visuals.

3. This game offers a chance to easily play a song on a signature instrument from the 1930s, Clara Rockwell’s theremin. By moving your mouse or finger over the notes, you can perform your own masterpiece on the theremin, which was a precursor to today’s electronic instruments.
4. Coming off from the music themed Doodles, this one brings us a marvellous game in the ever popular genre of catapult games. Originally celebrating garden gnomes for Garden Day 2018 (a German holiday), this game is a beast that lets you use a trebuchet to fling a gnome hundreds of meters, bouncing on clouds, mushrooms, and logs along the way.
