soccer-2012

In the series, Google came up with doodle named Soccer on August 10th 2012. Soccer being a very famous sport got a lot of fans playing this doodle game all around the globe. The game was not involving players to do goals on opposite team like what happens in FIFA game but was a short version where we play as a goalkeeper and try to block the goals coming from other side.

Direction keys on the keyboard are used to move the player horizontally and space bar is used to make the goalkeeper jump for blocking the ball coming at a height.

The objective is to block as many goals as possible. Game is over when a player fails to block three goals

The game keeps going more and more challenging as the speed of ball keeps on increasing till the target of three goals is achieved.

All the games created by google in a form of doodle were very interesting and addictive.

For every game stars are awarded depending upon the set of rules and performance by the player, three stars being highest are given to player with flawless victory and is very challenging for some player to achieve.
