DW 50th: Google NZ celebrates Doctor Who with fun game!

Doctor Who

In honor of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary happening, Google’s New Zealand Doodle has placed an addicting Doctor Who game where the Doctor must save the GOOGLE letters and avoid the Daleks and Cybermen.

You get to pick any of the 11 Doctors (no, not the War Doctor) – just 1 through 11. You have six levels to go through and each becoming more difficult than the next. Many of the Whovians I know spent a great deal on this game.

Over 4000 Whovians signed a online petition to Google to get a doodle for the 50th Anniversary – which is this Saturday – and their hard work paid off. This Doodle was created and by Google engineer (and a Brit) Matthew Cruickshank and his “Whodoodle” team of five.

Cruickshank said about the game, “”The thing is that he’s a Time Lord, a time traveler, so I really wanted to get the feeling across that you could travel to different eras. I definitely didn’t want you to just play one level and that is it, I love the idea of the Doctor being able zoom around the universe.”

And that he did.

Now, go forth and play the game!
