Halloween 2020 is celebrated on October 31, on the weekend, but Google decided to “steal the start” of the celebrations with a doodle guide.
If you enter Google.com today, preferably from your mobile, your logo has been replaced with a reference to one of the most important import holidays. It was impossible for Halloween 2020 not to be celebrated in one form or another by the Mountain View giant.
But unlike a simplistic graphics or a short animation that you often see instead of the Google logo, the giant opted for a video game optimized for mobile. It’s not a very complex game with only four levels, but it seems to have involved a significant effort on the programming side, given posting on the company’s blog which details the process.
Unlike most Google Doodle creations, this is a “historical” reference to a very old doodle. The magic cat from the little toy was introduced in the online space in 2016, also through a Halloween doodle. If you are curious about the original version, Google keeps an archive of these creations, and 2016 Magic Cat Academy is available here.
From the player position, you enter the skin of the Momo cat, and your goal is to help your friends reach new depths in an adventure full of underwater ghosts. The climax is a confrontation with the Big Boss, because Google could not invent a more ugly name than the “big boss”. Until him, however, there is an army of small ghosts that you can eliminate by drawing on the phone screen the symbol illustrated above each “monstrosity”.
Basically, you swim and swipe to prepare to celebrate Halloween 2020. In any other conditions, maybe you would have dressed up and gone to a party, even in Romania, this year, the American holiday can be celebrated. and with the help of Google.
