Stop what you're doing and play Google's Halloween cat game


This is why Al Gore invented the Internet

Harry Potter, eat your heart out. Google made a cat wizard game and it's so cute you're going to want to punch your eyes in. It might be easy to miss: Google has rolled out a new homepage that looks like a Halloween cartoon movie, but there's a full game after the film. (not sure if this link works outside of the US). Skip the intro if you're dead inside.

The mechanic is simple: Ghosts will begin to surround you with a simple pattern over their heads, and you must draw the pattern with your pointer before they touch your pussy. This starts easy enough, but soon you'll get into boss fights with sentence-like patterns a-la Parappa. Just when you think you've got the hang of it the bastards will dash with increasing complexity and speed, and there's five different zones to move through. You can draw the pattern anywhere on the screen, you don't have to touch the enemy. In some cases you can get combos if enemies with the same pattern emerge.

If you waste an hour of your weekend as I have, post your high scores in the comments. Happy Halloween! The cat somehow reminds me of the boss that appears in back of What The Heck (which has the best elevator music of the 90's).
