Google Doodle: Basketball 2012


Google's basketball Doodle for Olympics 2012

Google continues today with another Doodle - Basketball 2012. This is after their highly interactive doodle launched yesterday - hurdles 2012. Again like in the hurdles if you do well you stand to win three gold coins. You can win either none or 1 to 3 gold coins. You also have 24 seconds to shoot a many hoops as possible. 24 seconds is the short clock time used in basketball. Short clock was designed to quicken the pace of games and is used especially in basketball. 

How to play the basketball 2012 doodle from Google
Head over to Google and click the play button. You need to press the space bar once to hold the ball and press it again to release. This is where your skills lie, hold the space bar for too long and the ball goes right over the ring. There is a timer counting down your 24 seconds with a score board with the points you have earned. There maybe a way to slam-dunk but we haven't figured out how. 

This is definately not going to be the last interactive London 2012 Olympics doodle from Google and we can expect a few more in the coming days. Make sure you keep earning those gold coins. So give it a spin and if you come across any tips and tricks to make the doodle better, do let us know in the comments section below. To play head over to Google or if you want the permalink to play whenever you want, here it is https://www.google.com/doodles/basketball-2012.
