“Sometimes love takes you by surprise,” Google wrote on its official Doodle page. It can be full of twists and turns, but it can still bring the world closer together despite its ups and downs (no matter the species). Look at the two smitten hamsters in today’s interactive 3-D Doodle. Can you piece their path together so they can scamper into each other’s precious paws? As the saying goes, “home is where the heart is.”
How to Participate in the Game
Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular festivals of the year, and this game features two love-stricken hamsters separated by a treacherous maze in the shape of Google’s logo. All you must do is solve the maze and support these love-torn hamsters to reunite.
People navigating the Google page can play the interactive game by clicking on the play button. Then, a maze will appear on the screen, from here you can help the two hamsters reunite by pulling a series of levers and switches until Google’s logo is complete. The completed Google logo will act as a tunnel for the two hamsters to reach each other. After the hamsters reunite, a heart appears with a message wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day on screen.
All you have to do is click on the play button to be taken to the next screen, which depicts two hamsters standing apart, with a Google made of pipe in the middle, which is not fixed or structured. Once the pipes are structured an appears as ‘GOOGLE’ the hamsters will make way inside the pipe, to meet each other. A very simple and cute game that can be played by both children and adults and takes only a few seconds to complete.
Users can also share the game’s outcome on a variety of social networking sites.
