Cauldron II: The Pumpkin Strikes Back, Commodore 64

The sequel to Cauldron, Cauldron II: The Pumpkin Strikes Back was a brilliant ‘curveball’ from Palace Software, back in 1986, and is still a great game to play now.

Whereas the first Cauldron game put you in control of a witch who was searching for the ingredients of a potion to defeat the evil “Pumpking”, Cauldron II puts you in control of a bouncing pumpkin survivor of the Pumpking’s defeat, and whose aim to defeat the witch who deposed him. The game takes place in the witch’s castle and hidden around the various different rooms are items that enhance the pumpkin’s defensive and offensive capabilities.

Cauldron II: The Pumpkin Strikes Back is known for its high level of difficulty, but the key to survival is in finding those defensive items as soon as possible. When you start the game you can begin in any number of different places, so having a map to hand might help you quickly orient yourself.

Cauldron II is a Commodore 64 classic from British software house Palace Software.
