A downloadable game

This is a remake of the classic 8-bit game Cauldron from Palace Software. 

You have waited a long time for tonight and now you could become the witch queen, at last. You will need the golden broom but it is guarded by the pumpkin king. Only a special potion from your cauldron will give you the power to put an end to his reign. 

You know that the ingredients are scattered throughout the crypt, the volcanic cave and the underground river, but first you will need the keys to gain entrance to those dangerous places.

Don't crash into the trees, and avoid the bats. Evil plants and many other creatures will try to stop you. If you face these dangers with courage and wisdom, you will achieve your goal.

Wow, lovely work!! Very stylish reinterpretation.

What crimes did the plants commit? Why are they evil? :0


HOlaaa. Está muy bien. tiene todos los ingredientes. Puedes ir por el aire y caminar por el suelo, disparar por el aire, hay plataformas móviles y muchos objetos y tipos de enemigos. enhorabuena!

Hola FitoSoft, ¡qué bien que te guste el juego! :)

Gracias por probarlo.

Un saludo.


I would like to play the game on my real ZX Spectrum 128 or on the Spectrum Next: could you make a .tap version to use it with a DIVIDE or with a NEXT? Or even a .wav (or mp3) to put it on a real tape?
I think many users would be happy to don't play this game on emulators.

Hello SpectrumKomix, the .TAP files have been included in the download and they should be available now.

Thank you for your interest in the game.



Thank you guys! So far, my gf and I are loading your game on my real Speccy using PlayZX. I will download the .tap version asap! You rocks, the game looks great!
