On Wednesday, Google released Chrome Super Sync Sports, a collection of browser-based mini-games that players control by syncing their smart device to their computer. All you need to play the game is a computer with Chrome installed on it and a smartphone or tablet.

Once synced up, players choose from a variety of odd avatars -- including an eyeball, a hunk of PVC pipe and a bar of soap with a bite taken out of it -- to partake in a trio of sports-themed events including running, swimming and cycling.

The mini-games, which appear to take some creative inspiration from Nintendo’s WarioWare series, can be played either solo or with up to four other players during multiplayer. You can even rub your high scores in your friends’ faces on your favorite social media network.

While Chrome Super Sync Sports probably won’t hold your attention for more than a few minutes, it is still an interesting experiment in delivering simple cross-platform gaming, one we hope Google developers will continue to play with and build on in the future. You can check out the game here.
