Hello MIUIers,

Google the old search engine has some fine taste and sense of humor in its design department. Over the years Google’s amassed a veritable trove of hidden games, many of which first appeared in connection with anniversaries but continue to be available to play today.

Here are the best secret Google games you can play right now.

1. Google Gravity

Just how much of a “game” this is is questionable, and some may choose to call it a meditative or compellingly time-wasting “experience”. Whatever you call it, Google Gravity is strangely good fun.




Just type “google gravity” into the search box, then click “I’m Feeling Lucky” to watch Google fall apart before your very eyes. You can throw all the bits of Google around the screen.
2. Garden Gnomes

On 10th June 2018, Google celebrated Garden Day in Germany by releasing a Google Doodle themed around garden gnomes.


Anyway, clicking this Doodle would start a deviously addictive game where you’d catapult gnomes as far as you could using a sort of trebuchet. Sounds a bit cruel, but it’s a bit like Angry Birds really, and you never heard them complaining.

The Doodle is now gone, but you can find it in the Google Doodle archive and play it whenever you like.

3. Solitaire (Google Search)


Just type “solitaire” into the Google Search, and hit Enter. It’s the same old game you’ve always remembered – about stacking cards in descending order and in alternating colors. It looks nice, too, with a dash of Google’s design swagger.

4. Smarty Pins (Google Maps)

Once upon a time, Google’s in-house geography trivia quiz was accessible directly through Google Maps by typing “smarty pins” into the search box. For whatever reason, this wonderfully designed little quiz game is no longer there, but you can find it at smartypins.withgoogle.com.


The game uses Google Maps to ask you all manner of questions (ranging from moderately easy to super tough), which you answer by placing the Maps pin on the location where you believe the answer is located. Points are collected in the form of “miles,” and if you’re struggling, then it gives you witty little hints. Compelling, yet kind of educational, so you don’t feel too bad about wasting your time with it.

5. Flight Simulator (Google Earth)

It’s been around for years, but Google Earth is still kind of mind-blowing, letting you whiz around the planet and zoom in on just about anything, anywhere in the world.

Better still, Google Earth has a built-in flight simulator that lets you travel around the world using an actual plane. You can even choose whether to fly an SR22 or F-16 jet and play using a joystick if you have one. Our advice is to turn on 3D buildings as well, which means you’ll get to experience cities like San Francisco (pictured) in their murky-textured but nonetheless 3D glory.


To access it, you need to download and install Google Earth on your Windows, Mac or Linux computer, and then from the menu click “Tools -> Enter Flight Simulator” at the top.

                                                 6. T-Rex Run (Google Chrome Browser)

Google knows that the absence of the Internet can make people lose their minds. Luckily, Google hopes to stave off violent reactions with this cute and addictive game. One of the more well-known “hidden” games, this one requires Google’s Chrome browser.

Starring a lone T-Rex in 8-bit glory, you jump over cacti and evade flying pterodactyls in this endless runner.


To play, shut off your device’s WiFi or fire up Chrome when you have no access to the Internet. When presented with the “Unable to connect to the Internet” screen (featuring the aforementioned T-Rex), hit the Spacebar (or tap on your screen if you’re on a tablet or phone). Get ready because the deceptively-easy game is about to begin. Just keep hitting that space bar to jump.

7. Zerg Rush (Google Search)

Referencing the seminal real-time strategy game Starcraft, Zerg Rush is a little simple than Blizzard’s seminal game. For those who have never played Starcraft, the Zerg are a race of insect-like aliens. Performing a “Zerg Rush” requires a player to quickly amass a
large army of weak units and use them to overwhelm an enemy.



Search “Zerg Rush” in Google and prepare yourself as Google Os swarm in from all corners of your screen. Eventually, the Os will destroy the search results, but you can eliminate them by clicking on them with your mouse. How long can you last?

8. Pac-Man (Google Search)


This custom Pac-Man game appeared as a Google “doodle” on May 21, 2010. This playable version of Pac-Man was made to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the incredibly popular arcade game. To start munching on pac-dots, simply Google “Pacman,” and you can get down to the timeless business of avoiding Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde.

  9. Snake (Google Search)



Prepare to feel like Marty McFly and go back in time. The Google Doodle commemorating the 2013 Chinese New Year features a classic game from Nokia-era mobile phone dominance. That’s right, a version of Snake is playable within Google’s search engine. To play, punch in “Google Snake Game,” and click on the top result.

10. Breakout (Google Search)


Breakout is a 1972 arcade game developed by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. Players control a paddle that bounces a ball into bricks arranged at the top of the screen. The goal is to volley the ball back and forth between the paddle and the bricks until all the bricks are knocked out. To access this classic, type “Atari Breakout” into Google’s Image Search. All of the search results will morph into bricks. Control the paddle with the arrow keys or your mouse.
