Halloween Google Doodle scares up interactive creature feature

Halloween Google Doodle scares up interactive creature feature

It’s that time of year again to go trick or treating. with Google. And this year the search site has a haunting creature-feature Doodle that hides some of the animals that freak us out the most.

Google Doodles have been about for as long as Google has, altering the company’s logo to highlight necessary people, events, holidays and anniversaries. Google has also traditionally dressed up its Doodle to Famous Halloween, including games that feature an adorable black cat with magic controls and a Great Ghoul Duel that lets teams of players quiet wandering spirit flames.

With creepy carousel music heightening your suspense, this year’s interactive Halloween neighborhood presents a series of doors, behind which lurk fearsome beasts. To see them, you need only knock. err, click on the door. The animals you’ll encounter involved a bat, a tarantula and even an octopus.

After your host’s door opens, you’ll have the option of getting either a use or a trick (or both) from the creature inside. The tricks, as they should be, are fun (no spoilers here). The treats include sweet little factoids about your new friend.

Clicking on the home button in the upper left corner will take you back to the neighborhood. Be sure to check out all the doors and new hidden treats around the Doodle.

If you knock on all the doors, Google has a treat to reward your journey. appreciate your monster mash(-up)!
