Google is celebrating Halloween with its iconic 'Magic Cat Academy' doodle this year. It was originally released in 2016 featuring a cat called Momo who is on her mission  "to rescue her school of magic" from "mischievous spirits". This time Google has Halloween characters in augmented reality (AR) with the doodle. With Momo the cat, "you can help new friends and reach new depths in your adventure against the Big Boss ghost and its school of ghouls...underwater". With the Magic Academy Doodle game, in the virtual world of Momo, you can fight with spirits. How to Play Magic Cat Academy in Popular Google Doodle Games Series?
