Action and Adventure

On the protagonist's birthday, but the parents can't stay home. Instead, they hire Dr. MacDeath to take care of the events and he's planned a horror-themed party. But he's an evil man and he seems to have some strange powers. He turns one of the kids at the party into a balloon and traps everyone indoors. The birthday cake doesn't look too inviting either, it's full of bugs and worms. At least there're the party games and the presents, but what the protagonist tries first is entirely up to the reader!
