Hearken witches everywhere, play this game if you dare, defeat the Evil Pumpkin King to regain the broomstick from within. In Cauldron, from Palace Software, the instructions are contained in eight rhyming verses which describe the basic scenario - it is up to you to figure out the puzzles.
Crash! (Jun, 1985)
I’ve nothing but praise for this game, graphic detail is marvellous and colour is exceptionally well used. Animation is great too. It’s not an easy game by any means — flying through the air seems fun at first until ferocious bats (vampires?) try continually to drag you down. Finding the well spread and randomly placed keys isn’t easy either, using them is even worse — as you open up one of the colour-coded doors a new underwurlde appears, offering you screens in a platform — or should I say ‘stepping stone’ — game. This is even more difficult than the aerial sequences, because for half of the time you don’t know where you’ll land up when you step blindly off one screen into another. Eight hags might seem a lot of lives to you, but you could have eighty and it wouldn’t be enough. A delightful game that is bound to prove popular.

[Re-release] Despite being a bit wrinkly however, Cauldron still doesn't play too badly and there are far, far worse games to be seen walking to the cash register with. If you haven't got a copy yet, Cauldron is well worth looking into. Just watch out for the eye of newt.
