Google is one of the biggest tech companies around. It has become so omnipresent that you encounter it almost anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you’re on your mobile phone or on your personal computer, you are likely using a Google product.
Even then, Google Search remains to be the biggest search engine in the world, making it an important tool for anyone who needs to browse the internet for any purpose.
Aside from the more practical offerings by Google, it offers some fun in the form of games. These games may not be accessible outright, but they definitely offer some fun. Up next we’re going to tell you about hidden Google games.
Here Are Some of the Best Hidden Google Games to Check Out
Those who aspire to Abecome a pilot or simply want to experience the thrill of flying a plane might want to check out Flight Simulator. It uses Google Earth to take players over various places across the world, and even allows zooming into areas you are interested in.
Google Earth has a built-in flight simulator that lets them take a, well, simulated flight around the world. It lets you fly an SR22 or an F-16. To maximize the gaming experience, you can even use a joystick.
With Google Earth’s 3D feature, you can really feel as if you are flying over these areas. Plus, it offers exceptional detail, so you can soak in the views that you would not be able to see in real life, at least not as of the moment.
Those who have owned old-timey phones are probably familiar with equally old-timey games like Snake. It is a game where you simply press on the arrow keys to control the snake. The thing is it grows, occupying the screen’s space. Plus, you need to avoid eating your own body.
If you miss playing this game or you want to experience it, just go to Search and type in “snake game.” This will give you a result featuring an image of a snake and an apple, and a button that says “Play.”
To start the game, simply press the button and use your keyboard’s arrow keys to navigate. This plays exactly like the original game.
Google Doodle Games
People who love playing games and learning something should checkout Google Doodle Games. These games are incorporated in Google Doodles of important historical events.
One example of this is Garden Gnomes for the celebration of Garden Day on June 10, 2018.
This game is a bit like Angry Birds, except it is set in a garden and uses gnomes on a catapult. There are many games like this in the Google Doodle archive and you are bound to find ones that suit your style.
Some of the most notable ones are educational including those that let you practice basic programming and many others.
Google Assistant Games
If you have an Android phone, you can simply ask Google to play a game with you. There are a lot of games you can play including Akinator, Call Santa, and a wide variety of quizzes. So, make sure to talk to your Google Assistant once in a while.
This one might not be so hidden after all, especially for users who have an intermittent internet connection. If you have ever tried to load a webpage without a connection, then you probably have encountered T-Rex Run.
Yes, we are talking about the 8-bit platformer game featuring the black and wide T-Rex we all have a love-hate relationship with.
This game is pretty simple to play as you just need to press the space bar to make the dinosaur jump over cacti and avoid flying dinosaurs.
While this may be simple to operate, it can be quite challenging as the game speeds up as you progress. What’s annoying, though, is you may lose your progress when the page automatically loads once you have an internet connection.
Google offers so much more than your typical operating system and office suite. With these retro games, you can have some fun with some of the tools you thought were only there for practical use.
