The search engine site, which sometimes uses its homepage to observe special occasions, is giving a special nod to the spooky holiday with an interactive, multiplayer game.

The game is called “The Great Ghoul Duel,” where players compete as two teams of four. Each group must collect the spirit flames that are scattered around the map and return them to their homes before the moon is gone. But of course there are some obstacles along the way as players can steal flames from their opponents.

Those who snatch up the most spirit flames will unlock special powers like speed boosts, night vision, magnetism and more. Each match lasts only about two minutes. You can play with family and friends by sending an invitation link or can compete against randomized players across the globe.

Google announced it's the company's first-ever multiplayer interactive game doodle powered by Google Cloud. Give it a try now, and learn more about the fun here.
