Description

Orphan Feast is set in London circa 1886. The player controls Creaky Tom, who is hired by Oliver Twisted to capture as much orphans as possible, so he can make pie out of them. Three levels, each containing a few different stages, are to be tackled. It's only possible to proceed to the next stage when enough orphans are locked up in Tom's lair.

The gameplay is that of a standard jump-and-run platform game. Tom has got two attack types, melee and ranged, to knock orphans unconscious or to neutralize enemies. He also carries with him a large sack, which can contain up to ten unconscious orphans. When Tom is hit by an enemy, this gives some children the opportunity to flee from the sack. To prevent this from happening, black umbrellas floating around throughout the levels can be used. Catching one will make Tom transport all orphans in the sack to his lair.

However, if too much time is spilt, orphans can also escape from the lair. A warning will be issued on the screen, and Tom will be given fifteen seconds to find a red umbrella. This will take him back to his lair, where he as to defeat three constables in order to keep the children.
