30th Anniversary of Pac Man Doodle – 2010

As one of the first interactive Doodles, this is the game that started our obsession. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Pac Man, the game took our favourite arcade character and allowed us to relive our childhood memories as we navigated the ins and outs of the Google logo, all while trying to avoid those pesky ghosts (which have got no less annoying over the years). Providing us with many a nostalgic memory, this Pac Man Doodle is a firm company favourite.

In honour of the London 2012 Olympics, Google created this classic but addictive slalom canoeing game. Allowing users to navigate the fast-paced waters of a river, while avoiding obstacles and trying to make it safely through as many gates as possible, it’s a classic athletic themed game that never fails to hit the mark. A simple but addictive Doodle, this sporting game is a must for anyone looking to chill out after a particularly stressful morning.

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Doodle – 2013

Based on the classic and beloved British television show, the celebratory 50th anniversary Doctor Who game is everything we love about Google Doodle summed up into one. An intriguing mini puzzle game, the Doodle follows 6 levels where the Doctors over the years face Daleks and traps on a quest to find all the letters of the Google logo. Fun, compelling and at times infuriating, this is a Google Doodle that’s simply out of this world.
