Description

Pumpkins from all over the planet stole Earth's candles to their home planet. Now, as an axe yielding maniac, you must destroy them and collect the candles back.

This is a simple 2D action game where you must travel through mazes, kill pumpkins and collect candles. Its fame comes from a newsgroup running joke about a (at the time non-existing) game that would be a Doom killer, but could not generate enough hype due to its horrible sounding name. Reportedly, the developers wrote it in 48 hours to capitalize on the joke.
