Google has also a game embedded in the doodle. The game is all about cooling down the chillies by throwing ice cream at it. This is done by clicking the mouse at the correct point on the sliding bar; all you need to do is throw ice cream at the chilli to calm it, with the game getting more difficult as the chilli gets hotter. The sliding bar starts moving even faster at every level.
The doodle is created by doodler Olivia Huynh.
