It's a first person collector! The game plays like a first person
shooter but the purpose is to collect things – namely pumpkins!
Set in a
town populated by skeletons, your task is to gather pumpkins hurled
at the town by the local witch. Deliver them to your local chefs
at the mills to make pies and earn points. Perform well and the
witch will leave you alone – that's until the next full moon!
The pumpkins have to be collected (you can carry 5 at a time) and
delivered to the chefs at the mills.
The pumpkins come in three colours and three sizes. You'll get more
points for blue than red pumpkins and even more points for the yellow.
Red pumpkins have to be delivered to the red chef, blue pumpkins
to the blue and yellow to the yelllow chef.
The larger the pumpkin the more points you'll get – but the larger
they are the heavier they are and you'll move slower.
Plus you'll get bonus scores if you collect pumpkins in batches
of the same colour (three or more). So collecting pumpkins in the
order; red, red, red, blue and yellow gives you a higher score than
a red, blue, red, yellow, red collection.
When you deliver your pumpkins to each chef you will get bonus points.
The chefs will start to work making pies. Once a pie has been made
you can visit the chef to pick them up. You can use these pies to
buy stuff to help you get your job done!
Each level you will be set a target, which could be a set number
of red, blue or yellow pumpkins, and/or a set number of points.
Plus the witch is impatient and each level you are up against the
Pumpkins tend to go off quite quickly and burst! This means you'll
have less pumpkins to pick up – which might mean you can't complete
the level! Also if you happen to be near a pumpkin when it bursts
you'll get splattered which will slow you down! (Hint: visit the
doc at the hospital to get fixed up).
If you've got some pies you can go over to the townsfolk and they
will exchange your pies for stuff that might help you:
Gym – gain strength (for a short while). This will
enable you to carry those heavy pumpkins. Shoe shop – buy some running shoes which will let
you move faster (until they wear out) Saloon – take your chance at spinning the wheel
with the chance of winning more pies! Marketplace – acquire a compass from the pirate.
You'll find that it points to the nearest pumpkin. Old Father Time – visit them near the cemetary
and you'll get more time to complete the level. Blacksmith – he can provide you with a helmet which
will provide you protection from pumpkin splats. Voodoo – special charm that slows down time! Hospital – visit the doc to get healed. Mitten Shop – buy a mitten – very useful as some
pumpkins sent down are on fire! Without flame proof mittens you
won't be able to pick them up!
The Town has a rat problem
– watch out as those critters have a habit of getting in your way
and messing with your pumpkins!
How to Win – meet the level target! How to Lose – the clock reaches
zero and the game is over. Never fear you can repeat the level (and
you'll get some extra time to do it in).
Just go up to a chef and they will take all the pumpkins that match
Just go up to a chef and they will give you any pies they've made.
Note the windmill spins faster if there are pies to pick up.
The first levels will introduce the rules/elements that make up
the game. After that you get over 80 pre-defined levels before the
game goes into endless mode – producing random levels!
Same as a first person shooter. WASD to move around Mouse to steer
