Yet Another Playable Olympics Google Doodle – Soccer

Google brings the 4th mini game doodle for 2012 Olympics!  This time it is a soccer game.  As a gatekeeper, your task is to block the shots.  Move left and right and jump to catch as many balls as you can.

The game ends when you lose 3 points (i.e. 3 goals by the computer-controlled player).  There will be five footballs on the grass, but don’t think that you only need to block 5 shots.  If you successfully blocked the ball, it may bounce back and ready for the other player to kick it again.

What makes this doodle interesting is the way the G o o g l e alphabets are displayed.  Unlike in most other doodles, the letters are divided into two groups, i.e. “Goo” and “gle”, and placed on both sides of the gate.

Soccer (called as “football” in the United Kingdom and many parts of the world) is a hot topic for doodles.  Over the years Google created some soccer doodles.  You can have a look at them by searching for keywords like “football”, “soccer” and “goalie” in http://www.google.com/doodles.

You can play this game at http://www.google.com/doodles/soccer-2012 or wait for 10 August 2012 comes in your local time.

Striker Manager

This online game has over 100,000 users installed in their Chrome browser.  It is a multiplayer football manager game.  Although it is not Euro-specific, I like this game since you can play it with your friends.
