London 2012 Google Football Doodle: How to Play?
Playing the football Google doodle is quite simple. All you need to do is click on the play button to start the game. You being the goalkeeper, the aim is to save as many goals as possible, as the player on the other end starts shooting the ball in random directions.
You can use the left and right arrow keys to move the goalkeeper in left and right directions respectively. Alternatively, you can control the keeper with your mouse, which is a lot easier than the arrow keys. To save a goal, you can press the space bar, or click the left mouse button, which will help you block the ball. However, if the ball is shot at ground level, simply block the ball by moving the player toward the ball’s direction.
For every goal saved, you will be awarded one point; however, for every goal that you’re unable to save, you get a “X” mark indicating that you’ve lost a chance. If you get three “X” on the top left counter, that’s the end of the game.
