Today marks the day of Ludwig Van Beethoven’s baptism and boy did Google go all crazy with their doodlers to honour this day.
“It’s unclear when Beethoven was actually born, but December 17th marks the 245th anniversary of his baptism. Today provided us a rare opportunity to construct a game in step with beautiful music, whose evocative moods, drama, lightness, and depth made conjuring visuals to match it rollickingly fun. Here’s to one of history’s greatest artists, and to hoping that, wherever you happen to be travelling this holiday, your life’s work isn’t eaten by a horse,” Google mentioned on their blog.
In general a Google doodle consists of series of images or an animation which lasts for 10 seconds or less. This one is pretty different; you need to solve the musical puzzles in the doodle in order to reach the end. Beethoven’s most famous compositions like the fifth symphony, Moonlight Sonata, Ninth Symphony and Fur Elise are used in the Doodle.
You move on to the next stage only when you can arrange the musical notes in the right order.
