Look for Averill’s full report in the July issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors, but here’s a sneak preview of their awesome adventure.last_img

Google Doodle makes you an Olympic goalkeeper

first_imgGoogle has entertained us for several days now with its Google Doodle Olympic games, and today is no different. We’ve already had hurdling, basketball, and canoeing. For Friday, Google chose soccer, and more specifically taking on the role of an Olympic goalkeeper.I have to admit this is my favorite of the Olympic doodle games so far. You control the goalkeeper and have to try and save the ball repeatedly shot at you by the striker. The fun comes from the variation in shots, which come straight at you, try and catch you out in the corners, or require a jump as he attempts to chip one in.My best score so far is 36 and two stars. To begin with it’s quite easy, but his shots get ever quicker and the chips become the most problematic to time your jump for and save. Due to the variation I also think this is going to be a tough one for the programmers out there to automate like they did with the first two Olympic doodles.With only two days of the Olympic Games left there’s limited options for new doodle games. If we do get two more, I’m going to guess they will be BMX and Taekwondo, but we may also see volleyball or boxing making an appearance.As was pointed out in the comments for yesterday’s doodle, you can play all the doodles Google has created over on a special Google Doodle webpage. So even if you don’t get to try them out this week, you can always play them to your heart’s content later on.via Googlelast_img read more
