In the original Cauldron, the player controlled a witch fighting the evil Pumpking. In the sequel, you control a pumpkin battling against the evil witch!

The pumpkin's objective is a magic broomstick hidden in a castle populated by objects magically animated by the witch to stop intruders. Five objects must also be collected and used at the right places in the game to make progress.

As in the prequel, graphics are very colourful and well-animated without too much clash. Progress is again very difficult, but excellent presentation inspires you to keep playing, 128 screens if colourful, playable action seems very good value for the budget price.
