About the game

„The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic“ is a humorous, fast-paced action puzzle game for gamers of all ages (USK: 6). Hero of the game is the jelly-like pudding J. Jitters, who is trapped in a spooky haunted house. The player’s task is to puzzle his way through the maze of rails to find the exit, before the jelly loses his courage energy and faints from fear.
To help the anxious dessert out of disaster, the gamer needs to swap out rails at junctions and protect the pudding from the terrors waiting on the tracks: Angry witches, clattering skeletons and fire-spitting dragons roll over the rails and need to be defeated with an arsenal of madcap weapons. Coins need to be collected for the re-charge of the weapons and valerian to strengthen the pudding’s nerves...
