Pumpkin Jack was released back in 2020 on PC and previous-gen consoles. This New-Gen edition freshens up the ole Pumpkinhead to better suit the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Scott reviewed this game last year on the PC, and you can read his impressions here.
When you think of games that represent Halloween without being over-the-top gory, full of jump scares, or otherwise not family friendly, few will come to mind. Pumpkin Jack is one that all ages can play. Though it’s not a clone, it’s very much inspired by games like MediEvil and Jak & Daxter from the PlayStation 2 era, yet stands on its own as a highly enjoyable 3D platformer. It’s no trick, Pumpkin Jack leaves a lasting impression to be an instant Halloween classic.
