Top 10 Google doodles under the Play at Home initiative

Coding Carrots: This game was launched to inspire kids to code. It is based on What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) code. You have to select and place blocks to make the rabbit move and collect carrots.

Cricket: The Cricket doodle was made for all of the cricket fans across the globe. It is very simple to play and requires you to press the bat icon when the ball comes to you. The main aim of the game is to score as many runs as possible.

Fischinger: This doodle lets you create your own background music that you can share with your friends and family. The game provides you with four different instruments at a time that let you place notes on them and create music.

Rockmore: This doodle also lets you create music. However, it only lets you create music using one instrument, the Theremin.

Garden Gnome: This game helps you in getting to know the story behind the garden gnomes. It lets you throw garden gnomes across a garden, which then plant trees. The aim is to plant the most amount of trees using a throw.

Scoville: This doodle teaches you about chilies and their hotness. During the game, you are required to freeze the chilies by throwing ice cream on them. If you fail in freezing them, they will burn your character and end the game.

Loteria: Loteria is the Mexican version of the popular American game named Bingo. Both of which are quite similar to Tambola. In this doodle, you compete with others to win.

Halloween 2016: Harry Potter fans need to play this game. In it, you are a wizard cat that has to kill ghosts that are threatening your magic school. You need to defeat them by performing magic spells. The game has a total of five levels that you need to cross.

Hip Hop: The hip-hop doodle celebrates a 1973 party thrown by DJ Kool Herc, during which the distinctive sound of Hip Hop was created. Inside of the game, you need to shuffle through various records and try making hip-hop tunes using them.

PAC MAN: This one is just like the PAC MAN game that most of us have played earlier in our lives. In it, you need to eat the dots and stay away from the ghosts. If you eat a large dot, you can then eat up the ghosts and get extra points.
