Play This Interactive Basketball Game at Wednesday's Google Doodle

This Google Doodle marks the 13th day of London Olympics and it is really fun to play this interactive basketball game.

To play the game, simply visit (or see below) and click on the blue icon which will start the game. You will now be presented with the instructions, which tells you to press the Space bar to put the basketball into the basket. The longer you press the space bar, the more force will be used to shoot the ball. Therefore you will need to do some practice to master the perfect timing. If keyboard is not your thing, then you can also just use the left click of your mouse to throw the ball. Be it keyboard or mouse, timing is very important in this game.


The game shows the scores on the left hand side and after the game is complete, you can play the game again, search on Google or share the score on Google+. The best I can score is 18, but I think anyone can beat this score. Go ahead, try it out and let me know what’s your high score.
