Google: The Doodle of the 2020 Olympics is now the subject of speedrun


Google recently launched the celebratory Doodle for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics which is in effect a real video game, so much so that it has now become the subject of speedrun, with ongoing challenges between various players to set the completion record.

We have seen how the latest doodle is a full-blown role-playing game dedicated to the Olympics, a 2D browser game that recalls the classic graphic style of the JRPG but with various mini-games that refer to it. to different sports disciplines, which also require a certain skill in terms of timing and precision.

By leveraging these aspects, the challenge has been unleashed among the speedrunners, who are taking completion records to truly impressive levels . At the moment, the best performance is a tie between three, namely those of ExaminationMassive95, stratpat1964 and dishadow99, which apparently all managed to complete the climbing game in 11 seconds.

Inside the Doodle there are seven sporting events: marathon, rugby, table tennis, skateboarding, synchronized swimming, archery and climbing. Each sport is the protagonist of a short mini-game with a different setting and gameplay, but being able to complete them in such a few seconds is truly a remarkable undertaking.

There are currently several challenges underway for each of the specialties , meanwhile you can see an 11 second speedrun on the climbing mini-game at this address, as proof of the performance.
