:: Jack-o's Revenge ::

What happens when you combine the elements of the C64 classic game 'Cauldron II' with the Coin-op or NES classic Super Mario Bros.? Well, Jack-o's Revenge that's what! An evil witch has cast a horrible spell, transforming you into a Jack-o-lantern! Now you must jump, shoot and bash your way through 15 challenging side-scrolling levels of her castle in search of the five enchanted items: A pair of scissors, a hatchet, a golden goblet, a kings crown and a spell book. Once you have collected all of these you must leap into the final cauldron to reverse the spell - Thus, beating the game. My kids loved this game back 2005 and spent countless hours playing it and I believe never beat it. Now grown up and moved out, they still love it today (especially my youngest) making it yet another 'best game' in my collection.
