I really enjoyed playing this game.

Story: Funny. Search and rescue. Fight the evil one and monsters on a turn based fight .
You will dress up as a robot, a vampire... and each of them will have powers to use against the monsters.

Music: Not the best I have seen but... it's ok.

Game: Isometric view except the fights.

When to play it? Halloween will be the best moment xD

Unfortunately, i really can't give this game a good review.

I tried to enjoy it, i really did, i mean its Double Fine right?

The gameplay is almost non-existant and all three of the chapters have the same bobbing for apples minigame over and over again. There was no originality. Why could we not see three different mini games?

The variety of monsters was also very lack luster, they introduce new species that have only about 4 or 5 varieties each for a total of under 20. Plus all most of them do is just attack you, no special moves, no variables, just one attack. I get that it was supposed to be simplistic, but it was just too much so for my taste.

The supposedly clever humor also fell flat in my opinion, the writing was not NEARLY as good as what i am accustomed to from this studio. I loved brutal legend and i loved Iron brigade not only because the games were fun, but they were hilarious as well. It also hurt that the dialogue is not voiced.

If you are looking for a cutesy little game for a young child who has 6 hours to burn, i say go for this as long as its under 10$. Otherwise unless you are a Double Fine fanboy (which is not necessarily a bad thing, they make good games) then just walk away.

Charmingly cute turn-based RPG. The game has a simple comic-book aesthetic, and is full of silly characters and clever dialogue.

Through the power of the children's imagination, in battle they transform into towering fighters, based on the costume they are currently donning. These fighters include a robot, a ninja, a unicorn, and a giant crab made out of french fries.

The four hub areas feel visually distinct, but the quest types in each zone are very similar. You will find hidden children, bob for apples, knock on doors to "Trick-or-treat", receiving either a handful of candy or entering into a battle.

The battle system in this game is almost stiflingly simple. Each costume has a basic attack and a special move that can be used every three turns. Attacks and defense are managed through simple quick-time events, and there are no items or resistances to keep track of in battles.

Your parties stats are limited to HP, Attack Power, and Defense. Levelling up increases these stats by a fixed amount. The only character management lies in deciding which costumes to wear, and spending candy to obtain stamps which give various perks in battle. Each character can only equip one stamp at a time, and some are undoubtedly more powerful than others.

Difficulty is very low, especially once you have a full party.
