Google Doodle Halloween

Here is all you need to know about the Halloween Google Doodle game including what is it, how to play it and win it, and what is a Google Doodle.

The search engine giant Google dedicated doodle to Halloween day on Tuesday.

It's pretty impressive considering it's just a doodle, so head to and give it a try. Instead, you simply run around small mazes trying to collect more spirits than the other team. The game is available now, but if you want to play it, don't delay.

The more flames you return to your base, the more power-ups you get.

To enable multiplayer gaming, the Google Doodle team used systems running on the Google Platform, including Open Match - an open source framework for matching up sets of players around the world. They form a long trail behind you and disappear when you bring them back to home base. Flames can be collected in two ways-by acquiring them directly in your search or by stealing them from other ghosts. At the start of a new game, click "Host Game". The former uses the mouse or arrow keys to move, and the latter uses a touchscreen joystick. You can send the link to as many as seven people.

It's called The Great Ghoul Duel and it's a 4-on-4 online multiplayer game, that combines capture the flag and Pac-Man and snake to make an addictive new experience.
