Google’s hurdle doodle is a return to form

You might recall that we weren’t exactly enamored with Google’s doodle on the opening day of the Olympic Games. It wasn’t bad or anything, just really boring. Today’s effort though is a very definite return to form.

The doodle plays out as a fairly straightforward mini-game, with you as a hurdler. The controls are about as basic as you can get: Press the right and left arrow keys in rapid succession to run and space bar to jump.

Once you’ve run the track, Google will give you a time that you can share on Google+, or just carry on using Google as normal.

We’d suggest giving it a few goes and learning how not to knock over the hurdles before you share your times though.
