Google has decided to commemorate the 114th birthday of legendary director Eiji Tsubaraya with an interactive Google Doodle. The doodle is an insane interactive game that takes you to 10 stages of fighting planes and breaking buildings to make your very own short monster movie.

He made several wartime propaganda films, and later started his own production company. He made 250 films in total, but Godzilla won him several accolades.
For his special effects in the film, Tsuburaya won his first Film Technique Award as he changed tactics and used effects to superimpose his monster, on a man wearing a rubber suit. Earlier, effects were created using stop-motion techniques.
With this doodle, Google takes interactiveness to a whole new level by incorporating as many as ten stages into a crazy game designed by the company. The game allows you to break houses, stamp on tanks and annihilate planes to make a small custom monster movie of your own at the end.
