Pumpkin Jack was first released on October 23rd last year, just before Halloween. I remember catching the trailer to the game on the Nintendo YouTube channel and said instantly “I need to play this”. As a massive fan of platformers and growing up with the Playstation One, the vibes I got from the trailer brought back plenty of nostalgia. It reminded me of MediEvil (what a game!).

As soon as the 23rd hit, I purchased the game and got straight into it. It’s not a long game, it took me a few hours to complete but could take a lot longer for completionists. It has a great story, innovative puzzles and lots of challenging gameplay. The game doesn’t overdo the nostalgia unlike some and will sure ignite that Halloween spirit!

Here’s why you should give Pumpkin Jack a go this Halloween if you haven’t already played it…
