    pumpkin jack is a cool indie game that is an awesome spooktober addition

    story you play as the great jack sent by the devil to defeat the human wizard so that the devil can finally rule earth and that's kinda it

    pros:

    -the music and art style is very cool

    -the platforming and the puzzles are a cool addition

    -really charming characters although cringy at some points

    -the amount of weapons you get actually surprised me i didn't expect so many to be honest

    -really funny jokes and a lot of pop culture references and a lot of Easter eggs to find

    -cool skins that don't reacquire in game purchases *ahem ahem*

    cons:

    -the combat is very clunky and weird

    -the movement and platforming is very bad most of my deaths were only because i was struggling with it

    -game felt way to short i finished it in like 4 hours

    -no skill tree what so ever so that vest arsenal of weapons felt kinda pointless because i could just spam the shotgun and that's that

    in conclusion pumpkin jack is a very cute indie game for the spooktober vibe yet it is a little pricey at the moment but i would still recommend it however only for a lower price
    so my final score to pumpkin jack is a 7.5 out of 10

    In the end, Pumpkin Jack is a game that is flawed but still enjoyable. The platforming is solid if you don't mind the unsteady camera and loads of objects blurring your view. The sections where you can only control your head and the chase sequences add some variety to the adventure, but they feel overused. The combat is basic enough to get the job done. If these things aren't enough to drive you away from the title, and with the game running roughly six hours or so if you're thorough, it is easily digestible for a weekend and worth checking out for those who don't want something too deep.

    Without wanting to offer a truly innovative experience, Pumpkin Jack is a tribute to old 3D platform games. Nicolas Meysonnier's title is inspired by the greatest and offers a satisfactory experience although marred by a limited lifespan and a somewhat repetitive aspect.

    A fun old-school platform game, full of fresh ideas and hilarious references, which if not suffering from a lack of resources, it would easily stand among its genre’s big heads.
