Google’s 15th birthday celebrated by interactive doodle Game

Google completes 15 years and it is celebrating its birthday with an interactive Google doodle that features a piñata game.

A piñata is a fancy container that is filled with sweets and goodies which is later broken as part of a celebration. Piñatas are popular in Mexico. Friday’s Google doodle features a piñata that sports the colours of the Google logo. The alphabets in the Google logo are part of the celebration and the blindfolded, second ‘G’ alphabet holds a stick with which users have to hit the piñata when it comes close, to try and extract the maximum number of sweets that fall with each hit, in ten limited chances. Users can play with the Space bar key of their keyboards or even with the computer mouse. They can even share the score on Google+.Google

Last year, Google’s 14th birthday was marked with a doodle that featured a cake with 14 candles. The cake transformed into a Google logo, as each candles was blown out.

In addition to the doodle, there’s an Easter egg that lets you search on Google’s 1998 search avatar. Enter the term ‘google in 1998’ and you’ll see how Google used to look in 1998.

The first time Google created a doodle to celebrate its birthday was way back in 2002, to mark Google’s 4th birthday. It’s worth pointing out that September 27 is actually not the date of the company’s incorporation. Google started celebrating its birthday on this date after 2005 when it made an announcement about indexing a record number of pages. Google acknowledges that the exact date when it celebrates its birthday has moved around over the years.

Google was founded on September 4, 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. At that point in time, the two were Ph.D. students at Stanford University.

To mark its birthday Google has also announced an updated search algorithm called Hummingbird. The algorithm was rolled out a month back and aims at making Google search better at answering long, complicated queries. It has also introduced comparison filters, improved exploration for songs and revamped mobile apps for search.
