awesome bubble pet game

A neat Halloween entry. The music was rather charming, if only for a Halloween game. I can't help but think I have seen this format of game one too many times, but a fun time-killer none the less.

Quick time killer I could see this game being more fun for younger kids especially around Halloween season...nice graphics, cool music, and cool sounds...cant see myself playing this more than once though...

While this game has a pretty good Halloween themed concept and smooth controls,it lacks in content that will make it more enjoyable.
The way the pumpkin is launched is quite a problem as there is no way to show the direction the pumpkin is going to fly,and because the pumpkin is falling down,the player has to guess when to hit or the pumpkin will just fall to the ground(This system should be changed back to the old system of keeping the object in a fixed place to get a full chance of hitting it instead of waiting for the pumpkin to laugh and restart again.)
There should be a power meter to get to the furthest,even if without it,everyone has an equal chance of getting the pumpkin flying at the same speed,it fails to truly test the player's skills of knowing how hard to hit to get the best distance.
The gameplay depends on luck as three skulls are needed to get an extra shot which the player can hope to get none,less than or all three when the pumpkin is flying and that luck is also needed that the pumpkin does not hit any land obstacles when it is too low.Upgrades are not only needed to improve the performance of the player but also to give the game more replayability and not just get a high scores position in another website(maybe a skill to smash through obstacles which seem to appear a little too often and a higher chance of perks to appear in the level like speed boost.)
This game could really use some improvements but still quite good anyway.

Frankenstein graphic does not interact with pumpkin.
