CottonGame’s empty-headed protagonist is back for a new round of puzzle-filled fun in Mr. Pumpkin 2: Walls of Kowloon!
Brought to you by Shanghai publisher Lilith Games, this indie point-and-click adventure will take you back in time to explore the chaotic maze of human life that was Kowloon Walled City.
Cyberpunk elements add a touch of the fantastic to the world’s memorable characters and realistic scenes. Everyone has a story to tell and a mystery to unravel–are you up to the challenge?
When it was finally demolished in 1993, Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City was the most densely populated place on the planet. Fifty thousand people lived and worked in an area the size of an average city block. A patchwork network of transportation systems, crude but efficient, connected the City’s labyrinthine passageways and buildings.
The Walled City gained infamy as a lawless, densely populated ghetto, a jungle of dilapidated concrete and grimy neon signs echoing with the thunder of jet engines flying low overhead. Many historical accounts have focused on the darker side of life there: the gangs that ruled in lieu of police, the damp, sunless apartments whose inhabitants ate and slept alongside rats and cockroaches.
Yet life in Kowloon was not without virtue. Most of the City’s residents made an honest living–working as dentists, shopkeepers, mechanics, etc.–and were intimately connected with their communities. They recognized the deficiencies of the place they called home, and they fought tooth and nail to give their children a chance at a better life, but they were not ashamed to live in the Walled City.
Today all that remains are the glimpses of that marvelous existence captured in old newspaper clippings, home videos, and photo albums. But the City still lives in the memories of its former residents–and in the imaginations of cyberpunk fans worldwide. Mr. Pumpkin 2: Walls of Kowloon brings these memories to light once more...
The Dragon Gate has been opened. Are you prepared to enter the City of Darkness?

Quirky & compelling!!
Not sure why this game or this developer doesn’t get more reviews but it prompted me to write one-these guys & this game deserve it! First, a major shout out to this historic depiction of Hong Kong culture! The seedy or sometimes desperate characters who are just trying to do their best to survive, the gorgeous intricate artwork, the funky locales & back alleyways of the Walled City were mind boggling. This game took time & great effort to make! The soundtrack from the onset pulled me in & who knew a cartoon pumpkin headed protagonist could be so compelling! The gameplay was intuitive and the puzzles were fun and sometimes challenging, yet not so difficult that I couldn’t figure it out with a little head scratching. Thank you Cotton Games for this beautiful piece that pays homage to a time in Chinese culture that may otherwise be forgotten. It prompted me to explore other Cotton Games (for which I am now a FAN!) as well as learn more about the Walled City of Kowloon. Can’t remember the last time a game prompted me to learn more about history!
From the credits to the first scene it’s clear that this game is going to be great. I’m a big fan the of Isoland series and really enjoyed the first Mr. Pumpkin. Knowing the devs, I am sure this sequel will not disappoint! Will update later.
Update, loving the game, but using items is very frustrating on iPhone 11. Sometimes it takes 20 tries to hand a character an item or apply it to an object, and now I am stuck with the two kids and the water since I can’t give the gun to them.
Entertaining...but too simple
Overall I enjoyed the game, but it is too simple. I am a big fan of puzzle games. Mr. Pumpkin 2 is similar, but different from Mr. Pumpkin 1. In the second version there were less puzzles. The best puzzles of the game came after the ending credits, where you find yourself back in the bedroom of Mr. Pumpkin 1 for a round of puzzles. Mr. Pumpkin 2 is more of a scavenger hunt where Mr. Pumpkin 1 is more puzzles. I found that 1 was better than 2. The scavenger hunt in 2 was simplistic...way too easy to connect the dots. Rather than figure out what characters need, they tell you. Like, “go find my remote control”. Way to simple and easy, not challenging enough. If they do a three, they need to have more puzzles and a more challenging “scavenger hunt”.
