Google's latest Olympics 2012 doodle: Slalom Canoe

London 2012 Slalom Canoe: Google’s 3rd playable doodle

Google has yet introduced another interactive doodle today, but a different one, as it takes you to the water course with a Slalom Canoe game. The London 2012 Slalom Canoe is the 14th and the third interactive Google’s doodle after Hurdles and Basketball in the ongoing Olympics. 

The playable doodle features a paddler with a yellow-coloured canoe which allows you paddle a canoe down a water course on your computers that has 10 downstream gates, marked with green striped poles. 

To adjust the speed of their canoes, users can use left and right arrow keys. The game goes like this- the speed of the canoe slows down on hitting the banks, water animals and sedimentary rocks, and you will score more if you paddle faster.
