Google doodles celebrates Chinese New Year 2013

 Google Doodle celebrates Chinese New Year 2013 today. Google has posted a interactive Snake themed doodle game on its  Asian Google Search Engine homepages.

Chinese New Year 2013 Snake Game

Chinese New Year 2013 Google Doodle

It’s snake themed because this is the year of the snake in the Chinese calendar, replacing the outgoing year of the dragon. The Google doodle snake game plays a bit like the old Nokia snake game: you control the snake’s direction while grabbing items. Avoid grabbing the festive fire crackers though. You have 60 seconds to play but I don’t think you will get any rewards regardless of how many points you score. The game also comes with a traditional Chinese New Year tune, adding to the festive mood.

You can try the game on Google’s Hong Kong, Singapore, Brunei, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Thailand and Hong Kong homepages right now.

We’d also like to take this chance to wish all readers a very happy and prosperous Chinese New Year.
