Halloween may be long gone, but Headup Games is keeping the spirit alive and bringing Pumpkin Jack to PlayStation 4 on February 24.
A throwback to the platformers of years past, Pumpkin Jack sees the gourd-headed menace fulfilling a contract with the devil himself and getting himself into all sorts of trouble in the process.
The world of Rainbow offers a wealth of puzzles, not to mention dastardly enemies, precarious minecart rides, and a very devious crow, among other friends and obstacles that Jack will encounter on his journey.
From physics-based puzzles to bosses with shiny weak spots, Pumpkin Jack is an ode to classic game design, but that's on purpose.
Creator Nicolas Meyssonnier calls Pumpkin Jack the love child of MediEvil and Jak & Daxter, and it's a comparison that works. Despite the clear design inspirations – or perhaps because of it – we called Pumpkin Jack a spooky, dazzling adventure for young and old in our Pumpkin Jack review.
