Google is the go-to search engine for people looking for all kinds of information, but did you know that it also offers a plethora of games? While many are familiar with classics like Pac-Man and Snake, there are countless other hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
And in this article, we will explore the top 10 Google games that you may not have heard of before. From strategy to puzzle games, there is something for everyone to enjoy. So, let’s dive in and uncover some of the best Google games that no one knows about!
1. Atari Breakout
Many of us have grown up playing classic arcade games on arcade machines but they have become a thing of the past. However, Google lets you relive your childhood by letting you play Atari Breakout, one of the most popular classic arcade games without having to buy any tokens. It’s one of the hidden Google games that you can access by typing in “Atari Breakout” in Google Image search.
2. Champion Island Games
Champion Island Games is by far one of Google’s most in-depth video games that you can play. It’s an old-school RPG with pixel-art visuals with many quests, side quests, and a vast world to explore. For people who love classic RPGs but can’t afford to buy a WoW account, will feel right at home with this one. The best part? Google has updated the game with more content since its release.
3. Marshmallow Land
We have all played Flappy Bird at some point in our life, but have you played the Google version of the game? Well, the game is called Marshmallow Land and it actually came out with an Android Marshmallow version. And while the game has died down since, but you can still find it on Google. Not the most interesting, but still a pretty good game to keep in mind.
4. Basketball Game
Released all the way back in 2012, Basketball Game, as the name already indicates, is a simple basketball video game that lets you take your shots at the basket from varying distances with a limited amount of shots. You have to score as many baskets as you can by controlling the direction and the power of your throws to find the sweet spot. It’s another short game that you can play at any time, anywhere.
5. Google Earth Flight Simulator
If you are a fan of Microsoft’s Flight Simulator and looking for something low-key, Google lets you have a shot at it with its very own Flight Simulator in Google Earth. All you have to do is access Google Earth Application on your PC, navigate to tools, and click on Flight Simulator. It lets you choose from a number of airplanes, select flight routes from different countries and enjoy the ride as you soar through the skies.
6. Quick, Draw!
With AI slowly taking over the world, I think it’d be fair to include Quick, Draw on this list. It’s a Pictionary-style drawing game that lets you draw specific objects within 20 seconds. And as you are drawing the object, Google’s AI tries to identify it using its standout features. It’s a neat little game to spend your time while helping the AI learn. You can simply search for the game in Google and it will take you right to it.
7. Google Cricket
Cricket fans have nothing to worry about as Google has also released a Cricket game for its users. Of course, it has its own twists as the game features Grasshoppers and Snails instead of humans. You still get to enjoy similar gameplay mechanics where you control the bat and adjust the power to hit the ball in a specific direction. It’s nothing realistic but nonetheless, a fun little game to spend your time.
We have all been in a situation of utter boredom when our last resort is a piece of paper and a few boxes to fill. I am talking about Tic-Tac-Toe, one of the oldest yet greatest time-killer games of all time. Guess what? Google lets you play this game anytime, anywhere. All you need to do is simply type in Tic Tact Toe and Google will open up the game for you, saving you time and paper!
Solitaire is one of the most commonly played online browser games that many of us choose to play in our free time. But over the years, there’s been a ton of these games, each with its own set of rules and features. But if you are looking for a classic Solitaire experience, Google has got your back. Simply search for Solitaire on Google and the search engine will take you right to it.
Last but definitely not least, we have none other than the iconic Pac-Man game. The title that helped lay the foundation of modern video games with its unique and super challenging gameplay. If that’s something you are craving, you can relive your childhood by playing Pac-Man on Google without any hassle. Even after decades, the game is still pretty fun to play and should keep you busy for at least a few hours.
Google is filled to the brim with hidden features and video games that many of us are not even aware of. It’s a platform full of surprises where you can find anything and everything. And these games are just a small portion of what lies inside Google’s deep and unknown ocean.
