I bought this game and well......It's not shiny.....It's not massive....It's gameplay is simplistic and involves one thing......GRINDING! You level grind on stages until you are able to move onto the next stage. Have any of you ever Item camped in an MMORPG like everquest or WOW? You will be right at home here. I'm actually finding some enjoyment from the game I was a level/item Camper from way back. LOL I'm even enjoying the Ys book 1 and 2 attack scheme and powering the witch to take down bosses. Now don't get me wrong I'm having a goodtime with the game and Would rate the game a 5 out of 10. They could have done so much to make this an absolutely wonderful game. It's repetative Grinding and if that's your thing you might like this as well. Really most RPG's are just repetative grinding this just removes all that's in between and makes it an arcade RPG. I like this better than Planet Crashers....Sorry Renegade Kid

I found it to be a fun game and thought the review was a bit harsh. I've maxed out my levels and am on the final boss. Anyone have any advice for this?

As I play Witch and Hero More and More I have 3 skills Maxed out i'm level 36 I find myself loving the game more and more. If I could I would Change my original Rating to 6.5 just for fun factor alone. I was playing last night and smiling while I played and that is what its all about. There really is some fun to be had with Witch and Hero. Give the game a Chance or Wait for a sale. There really isn't much to the game that's for sure. It's not fancy, it's not lengthy and its not Epic. But it has sure grown on me.

I've probably put 4 hours into Witch and Hero so far and haven't beat the game yet. my guess is about 5 to 6 hours. For me the game is just fun. The game really should only cost 1.99 or 2.99 max though so if you can hold off for a sale do that. This is definately not in the same league as Gunman Clive

I made it to the Last Stage last night. This game has been great fun. If your interested in getting it I would recommend it. 3.99 is slightly a steep price for this one. It should have been 1.99 or 2.99 max. The game will always be in the Eshop if you can wait it out for a sale or price drop. I love the level grinding to get to the next level gameplay. The levels play different every single time you play them. I feel there is definately some replay on each level. You will wipe out a level and feel like your all that, then play the same level again and have your butt handed to you LOL For me the 3.99 was worth it since I enjoyed the game so much. I'm not going to argue Nintendolifes review of the game, it's the way Thomas Felt about the game. I feel different and it's been fun. it is what it is :)

I do have 1 hint for everyone: When you get a potion from a chest. Try your hardest to let it sit out on the field until you absolutely need it. It makes the levels so much easier. However potions do not drop everytime you play a level. then the next time you play the same level 4 potions might drop. but let them sit as long as you can before you pick them up for healing

@Windy - glad you made this thread, because I've been playing Witch & Hero and enjoying it like you. While it took me a great deal more of grinding and upgrading than expected, the effort is mostly paying off and I'm able to hold my own during the final encounter. The extremely limited scope of the game (a whole level fits on one DS screen, the witch can't move, etc.) means you have to make the most of your movements, even planning your death so your corpse can revive in a favorable spot. :)

One tip to add: treasure chests sometimes appear with such frequency that opening them is too hazardous and would distract from your protection duties. In these cases I rely on the witch to blast them open with the fire spell.

Great Hint Optimus. I use it already and also trying to get my corpse to land in an advantage spot is another I use. I think fans of RPG's will like this game to tell you the truth. There isn't much to it for sure but Fun to me is one thing the game does acheive. Certainly a price drop down to 2.99 might be what the game needs . I tried to beat the final stage last night. 5 Times I had no luck. It's pretty tough. So im still trying to beat the final stage

I'm pretty sure that if you get Witch and Hero if your a fan of RPG's specifically the Ys book 1 and 2 series you will grind this game out until you beat it. I recommend it it's cheap. My oppinion is that the game should probably be in the 1.99 or 2.99 catagory of games but it's fun if you like the Ys series

I picked up a new copy of Ys 1 and 2 on DS at ebay for 14.99 I really like that version. Not bad at all. I'm really looking forward to Animal Crossing and Mario Golf. I wish I had picked up Soul Hackers over Etrian Odyssey IV. I really hate Mapping out my own dungeons. I knew that going in but it might be what makes me never want to pick up the game again

weird i love EO4 alot more then soul hackers BUT Then again maybe the other devil games spoiled me...where you can fuse demons on other games you can REBUY the demons in the shop for cash, but in Hackers you need magic to rebuy and MOST OF them are very high and cost way too much to rebuy and they dont even level up ....

I thought the trailer was funny, but the price didn't fit for me. It's good to hear more opinions about this game since it didn't review well.
I think I'll hold out for a sale.
