You have been tasked by the Great Necromancer to maintain his pumpkin patch. As an acolyte in training, you decided to summon spirits from the nearby graveyard to help you harvest the pumpkins. Sadly, you were unable to control the wild spirits, and then now threaten to steal your harvest. Quickly grow and get your pumpkins to your cart.

Beware! The recently summoned spirits will steal your pumpkin if you're carrying it. Should you have no pumpkin to appease them, they'll settle for your soul.

SPACE BAR to plant pumpkins WASD or Arrow keys to move. Bump into pumpkins to harvest them when they're fully grown. Walk into cart to deposit pumpkins.

    It's kinda clunky, especially due to the collisions. I'd often get stuck on obstacles leading to my death :(

    Is it just me, or is the music kinda tinny / scratchy?

    Always fun to see people use sprite-stacking for a fake 3D effect though, very charming art style. Love the Halloween vibe.

    I love the simple gather things and avoid things gameplay, it's an easy to understand game that you can get straight in to and enjoy - the only problem I found is the collision detection with the movement was a little restrictive, but I'm sure that's an easy fix - beyond that, great entry :)

    This game captures the Halloween spirit very nicely with the pumpkins and music. I enjoyed playing it

    Collisions were super wonky and there didn't seem to be much incentive to collect or plant pumpkins in different spots. Overall not a bad submission. I enjoyed the halloween theme!

    Congratulations on your entry, Scott!

    I played a few times and enjoyed challenging myself to actually winning a round (it was tough!).

    The concept is fun, but it feels a bit clunky - I think the reason I feel that way is because the collision masks on pumpkins / graves are really innacurate and can be frustrating.

      Yeah, the collisions masks were a difficult aspect with the pseudo 3d. It was my first time trying that effect. Thanks for playing!
