Taking on the role of Lucky the calico ninja cat, players can enjoy a series of Olympic-themed mini games.
To commemorate the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Google has teamed up with Japanese animation house Studio 4°C to create the Doodle Champion Island Games, an Olympic-themed 16-bit game composed of different mini games players can enjoy.
Similar to classic Game Boy titles, it brings back a wave of nostalgia that many used to enjoy.
By clicking on the doodle available on the Google homepage, players will be able to explore the game as your avatar Lucky, the calico ninja cat.
Players can try their hand at seven different activities: table tennis, artistic swimming, climbing, archery, rugby, skateboarding and marathon running.
In addition, players can join one of the four teams – Blue, Red, Yellow and Green. The scores earned through each game will be added to a real-time leaderboard between the four teams. Although it is unclear if the winning team will receive a prize at the end, it certainly makes the game more engaging as players compete against each other.
The controls are simple, only needing the arrow keys and the spacebar to complete the game. As it is accessed through Google’s homepage, all gameplay is cached and players can choose to join back at any moment without losing any progress.
Interestingly, the game does not end after defeating the seven sport champions as there are numerous side quests and hidden challenges to unlock with varying levels of difficulty.
The tasks can be as simple as helping an NPC find a missing item or as challenging as conquering the secret advanced climbing wall in record time.
We’re not sure how long this game will be available on the Google homepage, so be sure to get started quickly if you want to beat the game and snag all 22 side quest trophies!
