The Doodle has been turned into a really cute game, which is based on a love story of two Pangolins soulmates who are away from each other.

The Web giant has a new Valentine's Day-themed doodle game aimed at bringing awareness to the plight of the pangolins, the world's most poached and trafficked mammal. "So it was a flawless theme for Valentine's Day". We hope that by playing this Doodle game, you can learn a bit more about these wonderful creatures.

In real life, pangolins do roll up into balls, but they do so in order to protect themselves from predators; their scaly exteriors fight off gnashing fangs.

"There are eight species of pangolin, four each in Asia and Africa, and all are under threat, including two species listed as Critically Endangered". You can click the heart icon in the main menu to learn more about the pangolins and donate to support the World Wildlife Fund's conservation efforts. But to make sure that they do fall in love in person, you have to help one of the pangolins go around the world and learn from different countries what makes the ideal date.

So go to and play it, if you have time. The last stop is in the Philippines where you will learn how to create the ideal bouquet to thrill the other half of this pangolin love team. It features a multi-level game starring a small rolling pangolin; using the arrow keys and the space bar, people can send the little pangolin rolling across Ghana, India, China (where it swings from ribbons attached to lanterns) and the Philippines.

Google actually recommends you play it on mobile when you try to play on desktop.
