Pumpkin Jack is an adventure game where you run, jump and explore a kingdom, fighting enemies and solving puzzles. Pumpkin Jack is a Halloween themed character, and the world and other characters underline this.

You pursue your quest through the 7 different levels, with different atmospheres, and to use Pumpkin Jack the spooky character to destroy the wizard who is trying to put an end to the Devil's curse. As you go on your journey you fight monsters and different enemies with various weapons you pick up along the way. In each of the puzzle levels you are presented with a riddle to solve and by finding the correct solution you allow Pumpkin Jack to progress through the game.

It’s different from other action platform games because rather than playing on the side of the heroes fighting against evil, you are playing on the villain side against the good.
