It's Halloween in Green County, USA, and six friends are out trick-or-treating. They have reached the house of old Mrs. Crawley, who is rumored to be a witch. As they ring the doorbell, the streets are suddenly filled with masked men, stealingo ther trick-or-treaters' candy. Six of the assailants corner our kids, who smack them upside their collective heads with their candy filled sacks. They grill the scumbags, and learn that they're working for Rodney Robertson III, the rich kid living across the town, who wants all the candy for himself. Mrs. Crawley watches the kids intently, and decides they have "the right stuff" to save Halloween. Yep, the rumors are true. She's a witch, and the official representative of Halloween in the UAH(United Association of Holidays). She imbues their costumes with magical powers to help them, and sends them on a quest spanning Green County to stop the rich brat.
Bobby the Vampire: The most well-rounded character. He can fly by turning into a bat(natch).
Glenda the Fairy: She's weak physically, but very fast and a pretty good jumper. She can shrink to fit into small places. When shrunken, she's too small for enemies to notice her, but she can't attack.
Luke the Spaceman: He's pretty strong and a good jumper. He can use a laser gun. It's rapid-firing, and has great range.
Lucy the Kangaroo: She's fairly fast, and the best jumper. She can execute super-jumps which allow her to reach high places, and cause enemy-damaging tremors when she lands. She can also hit enemies with devastating punches.
Sophie the Dragon: She's the slowest character, but also the strongest. She canuse fire breath, which has a short but wide arange, and is VERY powerful.
Jack the Football Player: He's strong, but somewhat slow and a lousy jumper. However, his magic power is charging at high speed to hammer enemies and break down weak walls.
Rodney's Gang: A bunch of bullies who like to steal candy. They're easily subdued.
Trick-or-treaters: They're so desperate for candy, they're willing to mug kids for it. When they see you, they go into a frenzy, and dont' stop until either you lose them, or they beat the tar out of you. The easiest way to avoid them is with Glenda's shrinking or Jack's charge.
Dogs: Dogs are like trick-or-treaters, except they can actually be beaten.
Candy: It's either found lying around, or obtained from defeating enemies. Collect all the candy in a certain level, and you can give it to trick-or-treaters so they won't attack you.
Apples: They restore your strength. Hey, candy rots your teeth!
Razor Apples: Avoid these! They damage you. Examine apples for razors before you grab them.
Eggs: These can be thrown to damage enemies.
Toilet paper: Throw it at enemies to tangle them in it and slow them down.
Flaming bags: Like TP, except it makes enemies stop for a short time.
Buttons: Mrs. Crawley's pet cat. You'll find him floating on a broom at the beginning of each level. Mrs. Crawley can contact you through a crystal on his collar to give you advice or save your game. You can also use him to go other levels, or back to Mrs. Crawley's house, the only place where you can switch characters.
UAH Transmitter Pieces: Find all of these, and Mrs. Crawley can call in the other UAH representative, which then become selectable characters.
