Относно тази игра

Meet Lemuel Barnabas. He is not a protagonist in our story, but just look at him - he’s scrappy and funny, talks to himself, likes music and long walks behind the bar. In a word - he is quite mad, but as mad as he is, he’s the one you come to for help. Help? What happened? You didn’t hear? Apparently there is this thing called Halloween. I know, I know, it sounds stupid. But there’s candy involved! Now I have your attention. The city of Dern is ostracized from the Halloween community. Everyone around you seem to know something about it, but you’re a boy, nobody is going to tell you. In this step away from the classic HO gaming take things into your own hands and find out whatever happened to Halloween.

Yes it's kinda campy in terms of theme, but campy is fun for Halloween. The artwork is pretty cool and I really enjoyed the puzzles. A couple of the mini games were irritating as heck, but they are skip-able if you get too frustrated. I did enjoy the plot too. I would grade it as a 9/10 for me.

This is one odd game. It's a casual adventure with a lot of puzzles and hidden object scenes, but it's certainly not meant for casual players. The 'hints' for the puzzles are riddles itself (like for example a three letter puzzle and the hint is 'what do I need?') and this makes the game really way harder than it should be. The adventure elements aren't really logical and involve a good amount of try and error which gets frustrating rather quick. The voice 'acting' is laughable and while the backgrounds look nice, the characters close-ups are bad. I could have abused the hint and skip function of the game to see the end, but I think I'd rather play a good game than this.

If you like really obscure puzzles and unintuitive adventure elements give this one a try, but don't expect a casual adventure.

Evil Pumpkin is a seemingly harmless hidden object/puzzle game, but under the cartoonish surface hides a merciless entity with the sole aim of torturing any casual game fans… or even seasoned adventure game veterans.

Long version:
If I’d have to sum up Evil Pumpkin: The Lost Halloween in one word, I would choose ‘confusing’. It seems like an average hidden object game, but in reality it’s something made for the most hardcore puzzle game fanatics.

Why? For example the hint system doesn’t give you clues or straight answers, it gives you riddles. The description of the puzzles are also written as riddles; sometimes you struggle to even find out what the aim of the puzzle is, let alone trying to come up with a solution.

The story isn’t faring any better. It goes all over the place, things happen out of nowhere, lead nowhere, and suddenly you just find yourself watching the end credits. Also, as a final insult, the voice acting is atrocious.

If you are looking for a nice casual game, steer away from Evil Pumpkin. But if you miss the torturous puzzles of the old Sierra games, then you just found a good spiritual successor in this hidden object title.

B-E-A-UTIFUL game, a tad different to your normal hidden item and point and click games. Cheeky humour and awesome art work.
I HIghly recommend this game to everyone. Even if the ol' point & click or Hidden object game isn't for you, the story and characters will suck you in.

10/10 glad it was Green lit :)

I do recommend this game but only if you really like Halloween, have lots of patience with puzzles, don't mind mixed quality graphics and sound, and can purchase the game for 5 dollars or less. Worse parts were the boy's voice and the ending. Best part was all the cool Halloween related scenes.

FANTASTIC Game, some of the puzzles are a little.. well, 'obscure' to put it lightly, and you REALLY do end up going map hopping, from one action point to another, BUT

Other than that, it's a really solid, well drawn game

Now, to the only downside. Having played 8 hours, I've managed to find a game breaking bug in the FINAL battle, Literally.

No spoilers, but it's completely broken, and without any ability to choose an earlier save? yes, 8 wasted hours.

if they can fix this little hiccouch? then it's UTTERLY worth every penny they want :)

Keep it up!

I love this game! I am so sad because I cannot finish it. My game is glitching at the puzzle in the "upside down labrynth" when I am doing the object search. There seems to be no key to open the chest to get the necklace. I have watched a walkthrough for the game, and my game just doesn't have the key to open to chest. Looks like I can't complete this game that I paid for... and I was really loving it too.

It is obvious that this game has a great potential.
The really neat, cute-yet-spooky artwork and the Halloween-themed story alone could make you easily addicted to this. If you're a fan of Nightmare Before Christmas, you may want to consider giving Evil Pumpkin: The Lost Halloween a try! :)


Wait for it to be on a HUGE discount before buing it, though, because absolutely no one thought the puzzles through O.o
The "mini games" are either painfully unintuitive or broken (or both). The game doesn't provide many clues, and when it does, they usually aren't exactly helpful.
This, combined with the annoying voice acting, becomes a major nuisance rather quickly.

One of the worst puzzle games ever made, a puzzle means there is some way to solve it weather its puzzle pieces fitting together or matching colors on a rubiks cube. The biggest problem in this game is there is nothing telling you how to solve half the puzzles. At anytime players can skip the puzzles that are nonsensical but why bother hitting the skip button just skip this game entirely and click "Not Interested" at the top.

The game must be old its stuck on 4:3 and worse is you go around picking up candy to use for upgrades to your backyard which seems fun, but the candy is barely a few pixels big in many parts. The Hidden Object Puzzles suffer from many of the worst designs in these types of games, from objects being covered by the UI to them barely being visible at all with other objects in front of them.

An example of the nonssensical nature of the game is you get a book and a piece of paper in your inventory, they do nothing. The book needs to go on a shelf to progress the story. Not just any shelf but the very shelf it came from, so you basically pick up a book and put it back on the shelf right? Wrong, you can only place the book arbitrarily back on the shelf after going through a specific series of story related events which make no mention of the shelf, the book, or the crumpled paper in your inventory. Then from your inventory you place the crumpled piece of paper on the book in the shelf. Why this couldnt be done in the inventory is unknown the shelf isnt some kind of workbench like in other games, its just randomly puked together nonsense. The book must then be opened and you click the crumpled piece of paper and now you get an article. Even solving the puzzles leaves a void inside the player, solving an idiotic puzzle only succeeds in making the player feel like an idiot.

Perhaps a prequel will be made for this called "Evil Keyboard: Lost Game Development" because it appears there is none involved in the making of this abomination.

If you're in the the Point-n-Click genre of games, I definitely recommend you pick this one up. Fun little experience.

This game is cute, and CAN be fun. But the fact that they tell you NOTHING, is not fun. They don't give you any exact direction or instructions. When you play a mini game you are not told HOW to do anything. In the search and find it's pretty self explanatory, but the with the others it took multiple times just to figure out what HAD to be done. Some of them nearly impossible, I am specifically talking about the candle. It would have been SOOOO much better had it explained to me my objectives.

I have to give this game a thumbs down with an overall score of a 4 or a 5 out of 10. The game is alternately split almost 50/50 between being clever & brilliant in some parts, with other parts where the puzzles are a little obscure or non-intuitive to the point of requiring a guide. There were 1-2 puzzles per chapter that were basically unsolvable through logic. Most of these I managed to strongarm my way through just by trying everything, including things that didn't make much sense and weren't really achievable through the game's own logic system. Yet they were ultimately reachable through large leaps of logic and past adventure game experience.

But there were probably 3 or so puzzles in the game overall that were unsolvable without a guide, and that, even if you had an expansive knowledge of the puzzles and their origins (like the astrology/torch puzzle) the final solutions still lacked logical sense. And then of course there was the fact that the game experienced a final, game-breaking glitch in the last puzzle/final boss that prevented me from finishing the game; and the fact that there are no saves involved, which means for me to get the last two achievements in the game, I'd have to play through the first 3 chapters again to try to get the candle achievement, and if I messed it up again, have to play through the first 3 chapters of the game for each additional try. Hell no.

I would have rated the game around a 7 or so, but the game-breaking glitch at the end and the ludicrousnessness of the candle achievement in a game without saves results in me taking away at least a point for each. There's no good reason that either of these things are still issues and haven't been fixed by the devs by now. There's definitely talent and inspiration behind this game, but there's also a final level of polish lacking to make the game cohesive and fully functional. For adventuer game fanatics, it's probably still worth a look, and you may go for large stretches of the game remaining very satisfied and entertained. But be forewarned about the eventual problematic puzzles and game glitches that will have spin you around and be resentful that a game this good for much of its run doesn't have the last several wrinkles ironed out.

The graphics are neat, as is the story. But the voice-acting is mediocre, compared with other games. Plus the gameplay as such and the puzzles annoyed me. Some of the mini-games didn't make any sense to me, I found many of the puzzles/item combinations/solutions counter-intuitive. I think there's never been a game where I had to use the help-function more than in this one.

I enjoy Hidden Object games, so considering the good price...I decided to try out Evil Pumpkin.

It wasn't very good. The graphics were nice enough, but the storyline and ending felt incomplete.

In my personal opinion, the best sort of hidden object games are the ones where you find items in your surroundings and puzzle out how to use them (as compared to going straight from one hidden object scene to another hidden object scene with no plot or puzzle in between.) This game does follow those guidelines; however, the game doesn't play out quite right.

You have to do things in a cetain order to trigger events (which isn't unusual) but if you haven't finished something..you aren't able to continue on in the game until you do. An example of this is when I found a crop of flowers that I needed to get my hands on. In my possession I had a knife, scissors, hatchet, and pruning shears (or something like that.) Yet, it told me that I was using the wrong items. About 30 minutes later, I got to a point where I needed the flowers , I searched for an agonizing amount of time because I hadn't picked up anything extra that seemed like it would work. Of course, it was one of those very items that I was supposed to be using! It had kept telling me the item was wrong so I guessed that I was just missing a crucial item I didn't see. I am not sure why I couldn't just cut the flowers and carry them around in the inventory for a bit, but that is the nature of this game.

It doesn't tell you what is required with puzzles...you just have to guess correctly. Including the ending...it was extremely frustrating and then it was just....over.

Sorry, I had a lot of hope for this game, but it just didn't hit the mark.

The game itself is quite good. However there are way too many bugs in the mini-games that prevent you from progressing further in the game. Since you can't save in stages, this means that your only option when you encounter a bug is to restart the game from the very beginning.

I restarted the game twice before I just gave up.

I play hidden object games with my wife as a way of bonding and having a good time after the kids go to bed. This game suffered from translation issues, poor design and a repetitive background music. A lot of the puzzels are unfair and to difficult, other are ridiculously simple. Half of the time I felt like a genious the other half I felt like I was the dumbest person in the world. Clickable zones are a mess, reusable items are great but why not rope, or the lockpick you get halfway through the game. Bad design, inconsistent difficulty, and poor translation make this a game to pass on.
