Google gives over Olympic doodle to interactive hoops game

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google has given over its Olympic doodle to hoops on Wednesday, August 8 morning. This time, visitors to the Google homepage get to lob basketballs through a hoop by pressing the space bar, The Guardian said.

It's a slightly more demanding simulation than Tuesday’s. You hit the bar once to prepare the shot, then again to launch the ball, and the timing between the two strokes denotes the power. As the seconds tick down, your player moves further from the basket, so you'll need to minutely adjust your tapping speed – if you're skilful enough you'll be able to get in a couple of three pointers before the clock runs down.

While the hurdles game was clearly inspired by eighties coin-ops such as Hypersports, Wednesday's challenge is much more similar to all those smartphone titles where you lob crumpled pieces of paper into a bin.
