Google is celebrating the 114th birthday of Eiji Tsuburaya today with a unique Doodle that not only chronicles his contributions to the film industry, but it’s done across a series of mini-games that fans of Tokusatsu films, such as Ultraman and Godzilla, can enjoy.
The mini-games featured in today’s Google Doodle has players assisting in making a Tokusatsu film by taking part in a number of activities. Players will need to apply glue to a building miniature, dress an actor in a large lizard costume, and give the set proper lighting. There’s a total of 10 mini-games to take part in, which players can then share via email, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter if they’re particularly proud of their work.
We reviewed a game that pays homage to the popular Tokusatsu television series, Saban’s Power Rangers, which took much of its footage from the Japanese live-action show, Super Sentai. Chroma Squad does a great job of not only giving players a behind-the-scenes look at how a Tokusatsu is created, but it’s also a great strategy RPG fans of these kinds of films should check out.
