You play Vince, a voodoo doll of Madam Charmaine who at the start of the game is kidnapped along with some of her zombie dust by a bunch of goons working for a guy called Kosmo. While taking this dust its magic powers begin to scatter out into the world, bringing Vince to life and is the start of his long adventure of making his way through a New Orleans type setting as he sets out to rescue his owner.
The game also has bosses too, but being an old-school boss fight these are more about completing a task to hurt it three times before it dies, rather than the HIT THESE RED BITS we seem to get a lot of in current games. For instance, one boss is a two-headed Aligator type thing called Janice, which to defeat this you'll need to climb and jump onto a trampoline on their back, then pull a switch on a platform above and then dive into a hole that opens up below to release some sort of gas. All bosses I've faced so far offer something different, and to be honest have been enjoyable to a certain degree.
Overall: Remastered is a strong word in the case of Voodoo Vince, with it only looking slightly better in the looks department and nothing else. They could have easily just released the old version and the same annoyances away from the looks would still be there. Much like the case of Yooka-Laylee, retro fans will of course still get a kick out of playing a game they enjoyed what feels like years ago now. As a guy who missed the game first time around, Voodoo Vince is nothing more than your average Indie release which we see fall onto the marketplace seemingly every other week these days.
