To celebrate the opening of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, Google launched the largest doodle game in history, “Doodle Champion Island”. When you click on the graffiti on the search homepage, the game will start and it will take you to an island where a sports festival is taking place. The protagonist is called Lucky, a feline character, who begins to explore the island and completes all the games and side quests. Doodle Champion Island is full of seven sports mini-games, legendary opponents and dozens of bold side missions.
Lucky, the protagonist in the Doodle Champion Island game, must defeat every sports champion to collect all seven sacred scrolls and complete additional hidden challenges on Champion Island. Sports champions include Table Tennis Tengu, Skateboard Tanuki, Archery Yoichi, Rugby Oni, Artistic Swimming Princess Otohime, Rock Climbing Fukuro and Marathon Kijimuna. You can use the arrow keys and space bar on the keyboard to perform any operation to play the game.
The cutscenes and characters of Doodle Champion Island Games were created by Japanese animation studio STUDIO4°C. The company claims that it has identified stories and folk tales from all over the country, and its character images have been highly recognized. Then, they linked these folk tales and characters with each sporting event included in the game, and selected each event champion from these unique stories. The team’s mascot and the characters in cities such as Kappa, Iori, and Lion Dance are also selected based on their popularity in Japan.
The coverage of Doodle Champion Island is shown on Google’s interactive map, which seems to be accessible to most parts of the world. More than 200 countries/regions will participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. In the 17-day competition, countries will compete in a series of sports to compete for the gold medal. Athletes representing India such as Mary Kom, Sania Mirza, Saurabh Chaudhary and PV Sindhu are all in Tokyo.
In addition to playing the Doodle Champion Island game on the search homepage, users can also play on the Doodle blog. The game will still be playable for a long time after being deleted from the homepage.
