Doodle Fruit Games — The 2016 Olympic Games open in Rio de Janeiro today, celebrate it by opening the Google app on your phone, tapping on the Google Doodle logo, you can start playing the fruit games.

Google has got into the celebratory mode by promising one new doodle every day for the next seven days. These doodles are interactive and sticking to the spirit of the games, the theme is ’2016 Doodle Fruit Games’. As the name suggests, these Fruit Games are basically a mock Olympics of sorts featuring some delicious fruits.

Doodle Fruit Games How it works:

Google hopes you will find these fruits as “apPEELing” as it does (yep – Google wrote that, but I’m sure it’ll make sense when you play the Apple game). From what I can see,you can run as a strawberry, swim as a lemon, play tennis as a pineapple, there is a biking game (you play a coconut on a BMX bike), water polo, spider hurdle jumping and more. You can also play a cute berry that is trying to avoid getting turned into a smoothie by an overly aggressive (yet oddly happy) melon that doesn’t exactly exhibit the Olympic spirit.
