Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics, which officially kick off this week. Google is making sure you won’t miss out on all the fun by offering free mini-games in which you get to play different fruits participating in mock ‘Fruit Games’ along the lines of the traditional contests held at the Olympic Games, including track and field, swimming, and cycling.

To celebrate the opening of the Olympic Games in Brazil, Google has introduced the 2016 Doodle Fruit Games, a series of interactive doodles in which you can race as a strawberry, swim as a lemon, or play lawn tennis as a pineapple. You’ve lots of options such as a biking game in which you get to play a coconut on a BMX bike, water polo, spider hurdle jumping, and tennis. If you’re a fan of track and field games, then you’ll like the mock Olympic decathlon where you can be a strawberry trying to get past the finish line before being crushed by a gigantic rolling watermelon.

Google plans to keep you entertained for the entire week by featuring a different game in the Google App for iOS and Android every day for the next seven days. So if you get bored racing as a strawberry, you’ll also be able to run as different fruits, such as coconuts, strawberries, and watermelons, over the next couple of weeks to grab the title of “freshest fruit.”

If what you’ve read so far sounds like fun, then just keep Pokémon Go aside for the moment because Google will be offering the Fruit Games only till August 21. To participate in the Fruit Games, all you have to do is tap the Google Doodle on your Android smartphone or tablet. One, two, three, go!
