  • Despite a cute look and budget price this Metroidvania adventure struggles a bit on Switch

    I found Witchcrafty to be a bit of a conundrum in terms of how to feel about it. There’s no doubt that visually it has a great look, and in terms of the price it’s a decent value, but at the same time it has just enough quirks and issues that I found it hard to get excited about it. As you’d expect for the genre, you’ll have to do a fair bit of exploring, perhaps a little grinding to earn new spells you’ll need for success, and then backtracking here and there in order to allow yourself to move on. This is definitely an area that was a letdown through a combination of save points were a bit too spread out, general level design that never felt very inspired, and control mechanics that never quite felt right. The result is certainly a playable game if you’re willing to be patient with it, but aside from a lingering thought on some of its faults I’m not certain that it's a really memorable experience either, and even at that price there are better options available to you on the system.
