PAXOnline 2020

Sep. 18, 2020

In this gameplay video, Ready Set Indie Games plays Pumpkin Jack Demo on PC.

This is the PAX X EGX 2020 Demo of the game and therefore it is best to realize that this may or may not be the final version of the game.

Pumpkin Jack is a very interesting platformer. The reason it is so interesting is that I had the luxury of playing the demo back on itch.io before it got its overhaul, and let me say I am not disappointed with the way the game has gone now.

In Pumpkin Jack you play as Jack, a con artist and mastery of tricks who has been risen from the dead by the Devil, in hopes to help the Bad conquer the good. The graphics are more polished and the gameplay is awesome. I said it before and I'll say it again this to me is a successor to the Medievil games and I am a huge fan of Jack.

I highly recommend checking this one out and this is probably my top favorite from all the demos I played during the PAXOnline 2020.

If you would like to play Pumpkin Jack Demo for yourself, you can get the demo during PAXOnline which is Sept. 12 - Sept. 20, 2020. Be sure to wishlist the game on steam, if you enjoy it as well:

At the end of the video, I have suggested the 2019 Demo of the game to watch as a comparison between the two demos.

In this gameplay video, Ready Set Indie Games plays Shing! Demo on PC.

This is the PAX X EGX 2020 Demo of the game and therefore it is best to realize that this may or may not be the final version of the game.

Shing! is a beat 'em up with a unique fighting style. Instead of using the traditional buttons to fight your foes you actually use the right analog stick to fight your enemies. I was a little indifferent to the controls as I am a fan of the old school beat em ups, but the controls started to grow on me as I continue to play.

I like the fact that when you die you do get to switch to another character instead of it being a game over, and the playstyle appears to be how many waves you can get through and after each wave, a checkpoint is created.

I recommend the game and this is one of my favorite demos from PAXOnline 2020.

If you would like to play Shing! Demo for yourself, you can get the demo during PAXOnline which is Sept. 12 - Sept. 20, 2020. Be sure to wishlist/purchase the game on steam, if you enjoy it as well:
