Google is getting in the Halloween spirit with a first-of-its-kind Google Doodle that’s both interactive and competitive.
Up to eight people can compete in a multiplayer, interactive Google Doodle.
Users can either host a game and invite people they know, or get matched up in a game with randomized players around the world.
The goal of “The Great Ghoul Duel” is for teams to collect as many spirt flames as possible within two minutes.
Opposing teams can steal each other’s flames with a swipe, and use power-ups that get stronger as more flames are collected.
Considering it’s Google’s first-ever multiplayer Doodle it’s rather ambitious. There are even several different maps to compete on, and it all runs on Google Cloud.
Google also highlighted some other Halloween-related search features on its blog today, such as a list of commands that Google Assistant can respond to.
Last week Google also acknowledged several spooky Google Maps images that have been circulating the web and debunked the theories surrounding them.
Google is never one to pass up the opportunity to celebrate a holiday and it went all out for Halloween this year.
