The Alphabet owned search giant Google just released a treat for Halloween. The Google Doodle Halloween mini game is super fun.

Monday is Halloween and Google has just released a fun treat. The Google Halloween Doodle is an amazing mini game starring a little cat wizard at Magic Cat Academy. This year’s Halloween Doodle follows freshman feline Momo on her mission to rescue her school of magic. In the game you need to draw the symbols above the ghosts’ heads to kill them. At first it is easy as only one symbol like a dash or an I appear. Soon though a ghost has a whole code on his head like V-V-|-|. This little game gets difficult pretty fast. 

I had immediate fun playing this game. It is a real nice treat from the Google Doodle team. This game is especially great to play on a smartphone or tablet. The drawing of the symbols with the mouse on a desktop is less fun. This is a great game for kids of any age and for adults. Pro tip: If  you see a flash sign above a ghost head, draw it first as it kills more than one ghost.

The inspiration for this year’s cat spell-casting game came from a real-life black cat named Momo (photo below) that belongs to Doodler Juliana Chen. It seemed like a good opportunity for a cat hero, since the winner of last year’s Candy Cup Doodle was Yellow Witch and her black cat.

The original concept for the game involved a magic cat making a soup that was so good, it raised the dead. Connecting soup to Halloween proved too abstract, so the team shifted to the idea of a wizard school. This opened the door to a more robust world filled with interesting characters and paw-some themes. 

The game includes five levels set in a school environment: the library, cafeteria, classroom, gym, and the building’s rooftop. We had lots of fun ideas for the resident foe of each level, including a chef ghost, a venn diagram ghost, and a big whistle ghost that summons other spirits. 

"Doodling for a whole Doodle game was very exciting for us. We had so many ideas for elaborate symbols to draw, like a witch’s hat that would appear on the character’s head after it was drawn! In the end we decided that for a short game against the clock, simple was better. Plans like the “Eiffel Tower spell” were abandoned, and similarly, gag spells didn’t make the cut. Regardless, we loved the process of dreaming up the possibilities," said the Google Doodle Team in the announcement of the Halloween Doodle.

Play the Google Halloween game on the google.com homepage. Not sure how I will get any work done today because of this little game. Momo needs my help!
