Search engine major Google is back to what it does best. Making bosses angry and game addicts happy with its playable doodles.

Another interactive doodle, it's fourth consecutive game doodle for the London Olympics 2012, on Friday. The doodle this time features soccer or football - the most popular sport of the world.

This is Google's 15th consecutive Olympics doodle.

The doodle features a shooter and a goalkeeper. The user dons the role of a goalkeeper.

His job is to simply ensure that shots - for the goal - are saved. And in order to do that you have the left and right arrow keys and the space bar on your keyboard. The left and right keys will ensure your sideways movements (the goalkeeper) while the space bar allows you to jump.

The game is over if you let three shots in - or rather there are three goals.

Alternatively, you can use the mouse to play the game too. Left and right clicks make the goalie jump while moving the cursor to the right or left makes him move in the corresponding way.

If you consider yourself that fast, try experimenting by using both the keyboard and mouse controls to save goals.

Click on the play button first to ensure that the game begins and if you want, flaunt the score on the social networking platforms.

The Google logo appears on the side of the goal posts. Three letters - GOO - appear on the left hand side of the screen, while three others - GLE - appear on the other side.

Happy playing!
