Google’s latest Doodle celebrates Halloween as a multiplayer game

Google Doodle Halloween

Google's popped games into the "doodle" slot of its homepage before, but the new Halloween-themed treat you can play right now is easily the most fun diversion devised by the search/tech/ads/everything giant yet. You can scour the map for far-off spirits and keep a low profile, or you can strike at the last moment to steal the other team's spirits when they try to deposit them. Sogou posted their Halloween logo, we have our theme up as well.

The spooky mini-game allows you to form two teams of up to four ghosts, meaning you must work together to collect "spirit flames" and return them to your home base.

You can even receive power-ups like speed boosts and night vision by picking up turning in enough spirit flames, and you'll see just how well you did relative to the other players when the match comes to an end.

Check out the game here, and check out other Google Doodles over here.

Naomi Watts To Star In HBO's 'Game Of Thrones' Prequel Series
The British actress, 50, will play "a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret", reported Variety today, October 31. None of the actors from the original " Game of Thrones " cast will appear in the new show.

"In a Doodle first, players can choose to host a game with up to seven friends and family via a custom invitation link OR just play with randomized players around the globe", Google says. As a ghost, you are supposed to collect as many wandering spirit flames as possible.

To move around the map, use the arrow keys. You can play on a desktop or mobile device by heading to Google.com and clicking or tapping the colorful icon near the top of the page.

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.
