In the game you play as Vince, a voodoo doll who can perform an assortment of moves to make his way through the levels. Vince can perform standard moves such as jump, punch, and a spin attack. The game revolves around Vince’s ability to use voodoo powers, which the player can get by finding special voodoo icons scattered through the game. When Vince’s voodoo power meter is full, the player can use a voodoo power to destroy every enemy nearby. Each voodoo power hurts Vince in a unique way, but they all have roughly the same effect on Vince’s enemies.
Scattered throughout the game’s levels are special items for Vince to collect: Zombie Dust Bags, which upon collecting 100 will increase Vince’s health bar; Hearts, which give Vince extra lives; Beads, which are collected from fallen enemies and fill Vince’s voodoo power meter; and Skull Pages, which upon collecting all in a certain level will reveal a Skull. If the player manages to find, chase, and capture the Skull, it will increase the number of voodoo powers Vince can perform at one time. Many levels also offer a trolley station, which allow the player to travel between different levels of the game.
