As expected, we have another Google doodle today, and there’s no time to rest your fingers. Today, Google presents the London 2012 Slalom Canoe Game, also known as White-water slalom, where the main goal is to navigate a decked canoe through a course of hanging gates on river rapids in the best time possible.
Canoe Slalom made its debut at the Munich 1972 Olympic Games. However, it wasn’t considered a regular Olympic sport until Barcelona 1992. In this sport, the athletes negotiate a 250 metre white water course, flowing at a rate of 13 cubic metres per second, and dropping 5.5m from start to finish.
Over the last two days, Google has creatively come up with two interactive doodle, which were not only exciting to play, but has also provided users the best killer way to pass time. Google presented the first Olympic interactive doodle, which was based on the Hurdles race that certainly kept us hooked for quite some time. And last night, Google came up with the Basketball shooting hoops doodle.
The search engine giant continues to present its interactive and addictive doodles on its home page. In today’s London 2012 Slalom Canoe Google doodle game, all you need to do is navigate through the water channel, avoiding small hurdles in-between, and make it to the finish line in the best possible time.
How to play London 2012 Slalom Canoe Google Doodle Game?
Visit the Google homepage and click on the play button. When you’re all set to go, press the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard repeatedly to control the canoe as well as to increase the speed. You need to navigate the canoe through the hanging gates in order to fetch more points or stars. If you fail to pass through the gates, extra seconds are added to your final time as penalty.
Also, you need to avoid small hurdles that you come across, which not only slows down the canoe, but also damages it, with cracks appearing on it from the front. The goal — try completing the lap as fast as possible.
