A Dose Of Entertainment

The search engine giant has launched a throwback Google doodle game series. These interactive games from the past popular doodles are being released every day by Google.

Make Virtual Garden Bloom

On day five, google comes up with Garden Gnome game that charms its way straight into your heart with cute little gnomes. Before you could start playing the game, you are shared with a brief history about the tiny red-capped gartenzwerg, or garden gnome. These statues are so popular in Germany that they can be found in every garden. 

To play this game, all you have to do is to launch the gnomes as far as possible using the catapult. The more distance, a gnome covers, more flowers will bloom in your virtual garden. This, in turn, will result in earning more points. 

Once you clear the first stage, you get six gnomes to select from. You can try each one of them - with varied shape, weight and bounciness - to check which one can help you grow more flowers!

You can also check out more google doodle games from the archives available on their website. Once you are on the site, click on the interactive section. You will find bazillions of fun games.

So stay at home, break the Coronavirus chain and play these games to keep boredom at bay and stay entertained!
