Google Doodle : Basketball

Google came up with a very interesting interactive Doodle this morning and we did give you a post regarding the same. The doodle dealt with the hurdles race which supposedly was the main event for today. Clicking on the doodle let you run the hurdles race awarding you a medal as per your timing at the end.

So we did a bit of digging and stumbled upon yet another interactive doodle by Google which will go up at 00:00 hours as per Indian Standard Time but for those of you who would like to play the interactive doodle before the rest of India does, go to this link.

Today’s Google Doodle or rather tomorrow’s Google Doodle is based on Basketball. Google’s Basketball doodle, just like hurdles doodle lets you enjoy the fun and play the game on Google’s homepage itself.

Once you go on the homepage of Google (, you will be presented with this doodle:

Once you click the play button, your objective is to score as many baskets as you can in the 24 seconds that have been allotted to you. As you go on scoring baskets, your distance from the basket hoop increases which gives the game a sense of difficulty as well. As the difficulty increases or rather the distance from the hoop increases, so does the number of points that you earn by scoring a basket. That’s pretty standard basketball rule isn’t it? The two pointer line and the three pointer line. That’s pretty standard stuff. You can use both the mouse or the space bar to adjust the power in your shot.

Once your 24 seconds of taking shots is complete, you are again presented with * ratings or medals is what we would prefer. From what we found, a score of 36 gives you 3 stars while a score above 20 gives you two stars and a score below that gives you a single star rating.

So Google has given you a means to pass your time second day in a row. So buckle up and start scoring baskets!
