Yesterday’s Google Doodle was a massive hit. Many Internet users spent hours together to win three stars and get the best time in completing the 110-meter hurdles. Today, Google has added yet another interactive doodle on its homepage, and it looks like Google will be publishing more interactive doodles in the next few days.
Today’s doodle is a basketball game (shooting hoops), which is published in order to celebrate the upcoming men’s basketball quarterfinal games in the London Olympics 2012. This is the thirteenth doodle, and the second interactive doodle, posted by Google during the ongoing London 2012 Olympics.
How to Play the London 2012 Google Doodle Basketball Game
In the Basketball Google Doodle, you need to aim and shoot as many basketballs into the hoops as possible in under 24 seconds. The controls are quite simple. You need to use the space bar key to set the shot, and pressing it again will shoot the ball towards the basket. You can also make use of mouse buttons to click and shoot. For best results, give a break between each click, or if you’re using space bar, the longer you hold space bar the further he throws.
When you reach 8 points, you will notice that the player moves far from the basket. This happens again when you reach 18 points. As the player continues to move back and reaches the three-pointer position, every successful basket thereafter will be awarded three points.
This is currently the best way to waste your time. Make sure you don’t get caught while playing during office hours ;) Go ahead and try your best, and don’t forget to mention your score below.
