Pumpkin Jack review
But the Lord of Hell also has a trump card up his sleeve - he summons Jack, Lord of the Pumpkins. He is the main character of the story. Throughout six chapters, he will fight the forces of good.
The project combines elements of a 3D platformer, slasher, and runner. There are even episodes with arcade races. Locations are linear, although there are also quite spacious places.
Each chapter takes place in a unique setting with a specific theme, including a besieged city, a mysterious forest, a cemetery, caves and even the North Pole. Everywhere the player is greeted with new opponents and special elements that are not found in other territories.
Also, there are friendly characters everywhere, giving tasks. At the end of each location, a boss awaits. Despite the fact that Jack acts in the interests of evil, he will have to fight mainly with other demons, ghosts and undead. This is explained by the fact that the soldiers of the underworld are so stupid that they do not distinguish between friends and foes, therefore they attack everyone.
A stinging crow will become a faithful companion throughout the passage of Pumpkin Jack. She not only gives caustic comments and tips, but is also capable of attacking enemies.
The combat system is simple: Jack can deliver light and heavy blows, block and dodge from attackers. The arsenal consists of a shovel, spear, enchanted sword, rifle, scythe, and a magic sphere. Each sample has its own strengths and weaknesses, so it is important to correctly assess the situation and pick up the right tool. Also scattered across the maps are collectibles needed to purchase alternative costumes.
