What does Elgoog website offers
Elgoog has been made for fun purpose only. Here is the list of fun stuffs you can do on this website.
1. Google Underwater (also known as Google Gravity Underwater)
It shows the Google Search engine floating on water. Google word has been mirrored to make it look like elgooG. Everytime you click on I’m Feeling Lucky, one G word in gold coin shape falls down into the water, sometime a full box and or/crown fall down. The boxes, coin, crown etc. respond to clicks.
2. Google Gravity (Also known as Zero Gravity)
This fun feature let you see whole Google Search engine falling down. It looks like a building has collapsed. When you click on I’m Feeling Lucky option, the color on the page will be inverted, and you can click on Search or I’m Feeling Lucky option to go back to normal color.
3. Google Terminal
It shows Google Search Engine within Terminal (or Command). It shows data processing like old computers, and you are asked to press S to start a search, or Press L to use “I’m feeling Lucky” search option, and then it let users type any word to search. Then the data processing sign (……..) is shown in the screen, and finally you see the error. 😛 Last time I checked, it was able to show search result as well, but no longer now.
4. Google Mirror
Google Mirror Shows you a mirrored version of Google Search. Google Logo, Search button and even the letters you type all get mirrored. However, this one really works. You can type anything in the search field to google it, and the search result will also appear the same.
5. Google Packman
Google Packman was actually a Doodle that Google had released on May 21, 2010. Elgoog has used the same game on the website. You can Click on PackMan option on their website to start playing game.
6. Google Guitar
This option let you play a virtual guitar, you can also record and share link with your friends. It can be played using mouse cursor or keyboard key. The website shows the keys for a couple of music/songs that you can play. We have already written a separate article with the key of 25 music that you can play on Google Guitar.
7. Google Snake
Google Snake Game is also a Doodle that was released by Google on February 10, 2013. Elgoog also allows to play this game on their website. You get 1 minute of time to eat as much as you can, you have to avoid bomb or crackers. The more you eat, the more score you make.
8. IP Location
Finally, something that is not for fun. When you click IP location option on Elgoog website, it will launch a new webpage where some information related to your current location will be shown, like Your Geo Location, IP, Latitude, Longitude etc..
