Summary

Now my memory is a bit hazy but I think a game came out whereby you hid as a cardboard box or something and people had to find you? Anyway Witch it, it’s a game whereby the witches can turn into any prop in a level and hide whilst the hunters can roam the level and throw potatoes at props and if a witch is hot they will scream. From then on it’s a case of using skills like grappling hooks or flying or throwing chickens as the hunter to catch the witch. The witch just has to survive the clock. That’s one game mode and the others are variations of that like Mobification where once a witch is caught they become a hunter and so on. Fill the pot is a more tactical game as you need to turn into set props and fill cauldrons. The atmosphere of the game is that of a happy go lucky game and feels warm despite the slight horror aspect of it all. I found the game to be a lot of fun with friends or randoms as it’s very accessible and doesn’t rely on teamwork too much. I didn’t like how much the controller would stop working in menus or how low the population was that limited how much I could play the game. It’s a game that’s perfect for Halloween as it leans into it heavily and if you can get a group of mates in then you will have a lot of fun otherwise it’s a gamble as you will never know when or if you can play the game when you want.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
