The game is fast, approachable, and allows for just enough strategy to keep things fresh. But ghosts on the other team can steal flames you've pick up by bumping into your collection before you get back to the base.

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

Marking Google's first-ever multiplayer interactive game Doodle, the Halloween game, called the Great Ghost Duel, pits users around the world against each other in two teams as they try to amass as many points as possible.

The game, titled The Great Ghoul Duel, can be played from Google's homepage and features two teams of four ghosts competing against each other to see who can collect the most spirit flames. The former uses the mouse or arrow keys to move, and the latter uses a touchscreen joystick.

To enable multiplayer gaming, the Google Doodle team used systems running on the Google Platform, including Open Match - an open source framework for matching up sets of players around the world. You also get a few for passing through a teammate.

A special link will be generated that you send out to the people you want.
