Google Turns Logo Into 'Doctor Who' Game for 50th Anniversary

Even Google is getting in on the Doctor Who anniversary fun -- well, as long as you live outside the U.S., that is.

If you visit Google.co.uk today, you'll be treated to a special version of the company logo that, when you click on it, lets you play what should be a simple game where you collect the various letters that make up the word "Google" by pulling levers and wandering onto platforms while avoiding Daleks.

Note that I said "should be" a simple game. Because those Daleks are sneaky little pepper pots, and before too long, you'll find yourself obsessed with trying to outrace/outwit them to the detriment of everything else.
