As far as Google's
doodles are concerned, the search giant has been upping its game, both literally and figuratively. The latest doodle
is a point-n-click adventure celebrating the famous Roswell UFO incident that occurred on this day in 1947, a full 66 years ago. U.S. officials contend that what crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico was a high-altitude surveillance balloon that, at the time, belonged to a classified program called Mogul, but many believe it was actually an extraterrestrial spacecraft.
Regardless of what really happened, Roswell is now a tourist trap of sorts with plenty of alien themed establishments. It's a fun place to visit if you happen to be in the area or passing through.
To celebrate the mysterious that happened so long ago, Google's newest doodle shows a UFO crash landing on a ranch, after which you take control and help the alien creature assemble his spacecraft in a short point-n-click adventure. It's not a difficult game, though it's far more entertaining than the last time we played a title based on a similar theme. Anyone remember E.T. for Atari
