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.

Google's first interactive Doodle was back in May 2010 when the company made the logo on its homepage into a recreation of Pac-Man to celebrate the arcade game's 30th anniversary.

"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.

The Great Ghoul Duel lets teams of friends or strangers compete against each other as ghosts trying to collect the most wandering spirit flames in two minutes.

In the game, you play a cute ghost whose objective is to collect "Spirit Flames".

Demaryius Thomas trade rumors: Why the Patriots make sense for Denver
As Thomas makes his way to Houston , his former team wishes him all the best. The Broncos also might get something decent in return from the Patriots.


To play, move around with arrow keys, collect little flame thingies, which add up behind you, creating a tail of sorts.

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

So, this Halloween, we've got the Great Ghoul Duel. "The team built several systems to enable this multiplayer gaming, all running on the Google Cloud Platform, including integrating Open Match, a highly-scalable, open source matchmaking framework cofounded by Google Cloud and Unity". The spirits follow you around in a trail like JRPG characters, and if an opposing player collides with it they automatically steal that portion of the spirits you've collected.

Today's Google Doodle multiplayer game is a first for the tech giant. Click on it to start the game.
