I’ll admit the game title did raise an eyebrow when I first saw it. The developers could have potentially sourced for a better app name. The premise of the game is a little over the top too. An anthropomorphic lump of pudding navigating around a haunted house. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting to you The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic Reloaded.
The whole gist of the game involves moving the plate of jello around what seems to be amusement park tracks. Along the way, players have to knock out ghosts with party poppers and whatnot. Accompanying all this has the game play spooky music that will send a few shivers down your spine.
Design wise I found that the developers did a great job with recreating the haunted house, as it did seem very similar to real life amusement park rides. This is complete with a trap door at the end of each level that opens and quickly accelerates the track.
I found the graphics really nice too, with the smoky and hazy effect giving a degree of scariness to the seemingly bottomless pit at the bottom of the tracks.
I suppose the whole jello concept was just a try-hardy and backfired attempt at being unique. An awesome game nonetheless, and it’s free now.
Would I Buy Again:Yes
