In each level, you are given a pumpkin design to copy, 5 vats of paint and a range of items. By putting on eye patches, masks and hats, you can control which bits of the pumpkin are doused in each paint application, allowing you to create intricate designs.
There are 16 levels on the web browser version, and 21 on the mobile versions, each level being more challenging than the ones before it. You need to carefully think about the best order to do each coat of paint, and decide which items you need to put on your pumpkin each time. Mastering the game will take some time.
It's a novel concept, that results in surprisingly difficult challenges that forces you to think carefully about each and every move you make and rewards patience, persistence and planning.
