Celebrating Halloween practically, Google has brought the iconic “Magic Cat Academy” Doodle game back to its homepage. The game, which was once originally released in 2016, features a cat called Momo that is on her mission “to rescue her school of magic” from “mischievous spirits”. Aside from the Doodle game, Google has brought Halloween characters in augmented reality (AR). Google Assistant in the USA could also be getting a spooky-themed riddle room to make this Halloween a fun for people while staying indoors because of the coronavirus outbreak.
With the Magic Academy Doodle game, you’ll fight with spirits in the virtual world of Momo. The game comes in four distinct levels and is to be had for access through the Google homepage for the next 48 hours in regions including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the USA, among other places where Halloween is widely celebrated.
You’ll be able to use your finger on a touchscreen device or a mouse cursor on your laptop or desktop to attract symbols and defeat ghosts. The more you’ll be able to kill the ghosts in the game the more success you’ll be able to get. Alternatively, with each and every successive level, you’ll be able to get more specters, including a vampire squid in addition to an anglerfish.
To cause some distinction over the 2016 version, the Magic Cat Academy sequel comes with an underwater theme. Momo looks the same as before, though. Alternatively, you want to “reach new depths in her adventure against the Big Boss ghost and its school of ghouls.”
Google has given access to Magic Cat Academy through its committed Doodles webpage to make it playable in the regions where people don’t seem to be in the Halloween temper to a large extent.
You’ll be able to also play the original version of the Magic Cat Academy Doodle game from the Doodles webpage. That game also notably made a comeback as a Google Doodle in May to help people limit their boredom while staying at their homes.
Alongside the Magic Cat Academy game, Google has brought AR Halloween characters to the Google app and its mobile site. You’ll be able to check them out by in search of terms such as Halloween, Jack-o-lantern, human skeleton, cat, dog, and German Shepherd.
Google Assistant has also received a spooky-themed riddle room adventure for people in the USA. It may be experienced by saying, “Hey Google, tell me a riddle.” You’ll be able to also ask, “Hey Google, sing the Halloween song,” to hear approximately Google Assistant helping a werewolf, ghost and vampire get their haunting skills in a position for Halloween. The song is to be had in Arabic, vinaigrette, Indonesian, Japanese, Spanish, English across the globe and Portuguese in Brazil.
Additionally, you’ll play Halloween sounds in your house or on your Assistant-enabled hearables by saying, “Hey Google, hang-out my house.” Google Assistant also helps you bring a Halloween flavour to your room by flashing violet, green, and orange through your smart lights once you ask, “Hey Google, what must I be for Halloween?”
Google Nest Hello could also be adding spooky doorbell tones that are namely, Black Cat and Werewolf, alongside final year’s ghost, vampire, monster and witch. These will be to be had globally through November 1.
