Google Clouds is a version of T-Rex Dash aimed at mobile users. When you run out of internet on your phone or tablet, just open the Google search app and try to search anything. An animated cloud will appear. By clicking on it, you will be taken to that "cloud game".
The gameplay is very simple. You must command the cloud through the scenario, dodging obstacles. It's almost like the unforgettable Flappy Bird!
If you click on your Android version repeatedly, there in the settings, a game will open. Each version brings a different game, which almost always makes no sense. Try it for yourself and see how Google can sometimes be a little weird...
Maps and Earth Games
Games that use the technologies of the Earth and Maps applications. They require constant internet and that you have the geolocation service in on mode!
Google Earth Flight Simulator (Earth)
This is a much simpler version of Microsoft Flight Simulator, connected to Google Earth. Just have Earth installed on your PC. Then click on Tools and on Access Flight Simulator. You will then fly a plane all over the world! The graphics aren't good, but it's quite fun!
Santa Tracker (Maps)

While December isn't here, there are Christmas-related puzzles you can do when you access Santa Tracker.
Search for "Snake Maps" on Google. The first result is the game. In this case, you don't control a snake well, but a train, which passes through "real" places, such as São Paulo. The mission is to collect passengers and not crash into walls or into yourself. A classic reinvented!
