Super Cauldron is yet another platform game by Titus, well fitting in their long list of games in this genre: games such as Prehistorik, Blues Brothers and Titus the Fox. However, Super Cauldron is far more imaginative in terms of gameplay and quite different to most of their other jump 'n' runs. You are a cute little witch on a mission to find ingredients for a particular super spell. Equipped with magical stones as your basic weapon, you will traverse a wide variety of levels, each set in a fantasy world with appropriately scary monsters and atmosphere. |
What sets Super Cauldron apart from other Titus games is the inventive level design and cool power-up items. For example, you can pick up a broom to fly around the screen, although it has limited use. There are many secret areas to discover, and the game's soundtrack is – for once – much better than the average PC speaker bleeps. Controls are user-friendly, and animations are very smooth. Overall, a fun platformer that IMHO deserves a lot more attention than Titus' better-known Titus The Fox. Recommended!
