Ψ Pumpkin Patch Ψ
Well, another bossless chapter! No fun!
Go to the right. The path will be blocked by Pumpkin Blocks. Since you can't proceed, go back to the first area and climb up the vine ladder. In the second area there will be two paths. Take the left one, and you'll come to a dead end. Then go back and climb up the vine ladders. I'm telling you to go to dead ends so you can fill in areas, so later you won't have to. In the fourth area you'll see a huge pumpkin on the Corpse Kid's head with roots sticking out. Approach the pumpkin.
Jack sees a large pumpkin head on a little boy's body. Suspecting it's a Pumpkin Prince the Mayor's cries are heard, and he spins to the scene. He explains that the Corpse Kid is stuck in a Possessed Pumpkin. Jack ponders on it and then figures out that if he weakens the roots of the pumpkin, then the Corpse Kid will be free! The Mayor then tells Jack that Possessed Pumpkins have three giant roots in all. Jack then goes off to find and destroy them.
Continue and go down the vine ladder to the next area. Save and heal at the scarecrow and the Electric Chair, then continue. Jump vine ladder to vine ladder (it's not so hard) and continue through the areas until you reach your first giant root. The best weapon to dispose of this is the Bat Boomerang. The root has only one attack, it throws thorns at you so duck and use your bat attack. After you kill it continue on to the next area.
The next giant root will be in a room with a spiked floor. Use the same strategy to defeat it as the first on and continue on. As you progress you'll encounter Beetle Bombs, little beetles will be on the ground and suddenly jump and engage on you. They'll eventually explode on you, so kill them from a far distance. Follow the arrow to the next area and defeat the last giant root. Continue on the path and you'll end up back at the Mayor and the now freed Corpse Kid.
The Corpse Kid is now free. The Mayor thanks you as well as the Corpse Kid. As a reward the Corpse Kid gives you your third weapon the Pumpkin Bom! The Corpse Kid then tells Jack that he can now destroy barriers with a pumpkin mark on them. Suddenly Lock, Shock, and Barrel speed through the scene and snatch the Corpse Kid! The Mayor tells Jack to go after them and he spins off in pursuit of Lock, Shock, and Barrel.
This time go right at the entrance to the blockage of Pumpkin Blocks I told you to go at the beginning. Now you can destroy them with your use of Pumpkin Bombs. Use it on the barrier and continue after the little rascals. Behind the blockage there is a present, approach it to get a Shrunken Head! Continue on the path, save, and then follow the arrows. When you get to a room where you have to climb flying pumpkins that explode in 3 seconds. Go through the room until you reach the last set, go down the vine ladder below. Don't bother exploring the area, so go back up. Then climb back on the ledge and use the pumpkins to get to the next area.
Continue down the path, avoiding obstacles. When you reach the seventh area right of the entrance, be careful, a huge skull will appear and start rolling at you. It will get bigger as it rolls so hurry to the next area. You'll have to do the same in the next area. In the tenth area you'll have to be quick, hurry and destroy the pumpkin blocks, don't wait. If it gets too close, just use your Frog Gun on it, to turn it back for a few seconds. Continue through the map until you reach another intersection, past the pumpkins is a large wall, which you cannot climb. So forget about that way and climb up the pumpkins to continue your chase.
You'll then reach a place where you'll see Lock, Shock, and Barrel holding a box. They see you and run off. Go after them! Save and go down until you reach the box, use your Pumpkin Bomb to destroy it and save the Corpse Kid.
The Corpse Kid is okay, and thanks Jack for his help. He then gives him a game that he was playing earlier. Jack promises that the trio will pay. Suddenly Lock, Shock, and Barrel taunt you from afar. Jack approaches them and starts to scold the brats but then the ground he is standing on buckles and he falls into a pit!
