For years, Google has celebrated Halloween with a special Doodle, and this year’s comes with a special treat -- an addictive game.

In it, a tiny adorable cat named Momo (one inspired by a Google Doodler’s own cat) tries to rid a Magic Cat Academy of mischievous ghosts -- and catch the one who took her spellbook. Players draw various symbols on the screen to make different types of ghosts magically disappear. Momo mimics each symbol’s movements, showcasing intricate and excellent wandsmanship in the process.

We’re glad for it. The magic academy was actually the designers’ second concept. In the first, Momo made a soup so good that it roused the dead. While charming, we think soupmaking falls short in the action department.

Today’s game has five levels, and players -- likely already distracted by Halloween fun -- can’t seem to get enough and are putting work aside.

Players can't help but share their scores. The game is providing no small source of pride.

Players have been so charmed by the cat, they’ve been inspired to create their own artwork.

One fan already make a Momo Jack-o-Lantern.

Think you can resist the game’s addictive powers? Give it a try -- if you dare.
