Google has come up with a great interactive Doodle to commemorate the opening of the Tokyo Olympics – the game, which is now available, mix 8 bit RPG with different Olympic events. And it can be played perfectly on mobile.
Large dates and ephemeris usually have a commemoration in the form of a Google Doodle, a change in search engine coverage that usually adapts its logo to the theme being celebrated. Usually it is an image, sometimes an animation as well. And, on very rare occasions, Google is developing a game that you can enjoy just by going to its search page
Japanese culture, anime, 8-bit RPG and seven Olympic disciplines
The control of the game is the usual one of the Elaborate Doodles: you can use the keyboard and the mouse if you are playing from the desktop, although it’s on the smartphone screen that you get the most out of it. Touch control contributes to this: in the current game, the left part of the screen is used to control our character; the right part is the action button.
The story behind the Olympics Doodle takes place in medieval Japan in true classic RPG style. Similar in cut to an original Zelda or Final Fantasy, the Doodle is loaded directly from the browser
Our protagonist (the Lucky cat) will land on the Island of the Olympic Games and will have to defeat seven opponents in these seven respective sports (table tennis, skateboarding, archery, rugby, synchronized swimming, climbing and marathon). For that evidence will need to be located on the island by exploring it in true 8-bit RPG style
Talking with the characters that abound on the island is essential, while also moving throughout the available area. And the practice of sport is not exempt from experience, that there are seven events to play. In addition, we can choose a team that is currently competing around the world: blue, red, green or yellow. Google’s colors, wow.
