About The Game

An evil witch doctor has kidnapped Master Higgins’ true love, Tina!

You must venture through eight perilous areas filled with enemies determined to stop you.

Smash eggs to find useful items like the axe and skateboard to help you progress. At the end of each stage, face off against the witch doctor’s various guises. Go, Master Higgins, go!
