Google Doodle for Olympics – Basketball Mini Game

Mini game Google Doodle for the 2012 London Olympics again!  After reviewing yesterday’s hurdle doodle, today I have yet another interactive Google doodle to share with you.  The doodle of the day (8 Aug 2012) is basketball!

Google Doodle - 2012 Olympics Basketball

Same as yesterday’s doodle, click the central play button to start the game.  Simply press the left button of the mouse or the space bar, hold and release to shoot.  The longer you hold the button or key the stronger the power is.  You need a few shots to get the feeling.  As the game proceeds the player will be moved away from the ring, making the game tougher.  You have 24 seconds to fire as many shots as possible, you can see the time countdown and the score you get on the score board at the back.  The own audience in the doodle are the 6 “G” “o” “o” “g” “l” “e” alphabets, but if you feel like sharing the game and your score with your friends, you can click the Google+ button at the end of the game to shout it out.

Again, the game is available on 8 August 2012 at local time.  If you want to play the game before it is made available to your time zone, go to this place: http://www.google.com/doodles/basketball-2012 to enjoy!  Before I end this post, let’s review the previous Olympics basketball doodles.  It is probably easier to pick an “animal” to represent China and Australia (dragon and kangaroo) than to find one to represent the UK, right?
