The case of the missing O – a Google online puzzle

August 23, 2011

I love puzzles, I have a drawer full of those metal nails that are stuck together and you have to find a way to take them apart, and I love online puzzle games.

So today I came across The Google Puzzle. Not sure how long it has been up, but I only saw it today.

So I pressed the Get it back button and wasted spend a good hour on solving the 5 puzzles to get it back.

It is a Chrome experiment, written in HTML and it has some really quirky stuff in it.

if you get stuck there is the friendly Hint button – thank god for that one.

so if you are into puzzles, make sure you give it a go
