Google Doodle celebrating Halloween 2018
Halloween falls the day before All Saint’s Day, a Christian festival to celebrate recognized saints.
Celebrated on October 31 every year, its activities involve trick or treating and dressing up in fancy dresses.
Google, which celebrates important events and celebrities with Doodles, has come up with its first-ever interactive Doodle for Halloween.
Google shared Happy Halloween Doodle!
Today’s annual Halloween Doodle marks a wickedly exciting milestone: our first-ever multiplayer interactive game Doodle, powered by Google Cloud! Join in as ghosts around the world gather to play their own version of Trick-or-Treat: The Great Ghoul Duel! Ghosts team up and compete to see who can collect the most wandering spirit flames before the moon is gone….but not without some unexpected twists along the way.
Players around the world join forces on one of two teams of four in the Great Ghoul Duel. Exploring one of several spooky maps, players must collect as many wandering spirit flames as they can in two minutes and return them to their home base. After time’s up, the team that has collected the most spirit flames wins. But beware! – opponents can intercept spirits from one another as they bring them back to home base.
As an added BOOOOnus, ghosts who collect the most spirit flames will unlock special powers such as speed boosts, night vision, and much more! Players can also share personal superlatives awarded to them at the end of the match based on their scary good – or just plain scary – performances.
