Google debuts Olympic-themed interactive doodles --- 2016 Doodle Fruit Games

In coincidence with the opening of the 2016 Olympics Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 5, Google has launches a series of Olympics-themed interactive mini games --- the 2016 Doodle Fruit Games.

The 2016 Doodle Fruit Games are fun mini games which show up to the users when they open the Google app on either the Android or iOS devices. The users can click on the Google Doodle to play a number of games including tennis, mini golf, swimming, hurdles, and water polo.

All the Olympics-themed mini games rolled out by Google come with a fruity twist. They feature fruits like strawberry, pear, pineapple, or watermelon and go bananas competing against one another in track and field events, and also in activities which test skill, strength and stamina.

The gameplay of the 2016 Doodle Fruit Games requires players to maneuver the fruits through a number of courses. Most of the mini games require the players to tilt their Android or iOS devices and adjust their angles to control the game and the direction. When a game or event comes to an end, the gamers -- vying for the 'freshest fruit' title -- get a 1- to 3-star ranking.  

About the 2016 Doodle Fruit Games, Google said in a recent blog post: "For the next couple of weeks in the latest Google app for Android and iOS, journey to an otherwise unassuming fruit stand in Rio, where produce from all over the market are ripe to compete for the title of freshest fruit."
