"Mr. Squidly" follows your cursor around an underseacape littered with pumpkins, candy, and dead costumed children (really). When it swims over things, it picks them up--implying that those eight arms are all covered with suction cups, as they should be. The goal is to keep the candy and avoid the kids.
The squid is cute, but missing its tentacles. Being able to shoot out two tentacles would greatly aid in candy capture! But greatly tax the game's physics engine, I fear.
I like that the squid is supposed to stay away from the voodoo doll kids, because they are a) creepy and b) not good to eat.
