1PekoponTASSun 10th Nov 2013 I previously made a thread bashing Witch and Hero, but I'm afraid to say I have to take it all back. This is a case of me having no excuse, I was 100% wrong, and I must correct myself. Read the tale of how a video game puzzle so devious trolled all of its players at the risk of terrible feedback. To start, let me plant in your mind for later that walkthroughs for eShop games are a rare occurrence. Basically if your eShop game doesn't have "Shantae" in the title, chances are good no walkthroughs exist. With big retail games (pretty much no matter what it is) someone has bothered to write an FAQ. Being stuck in a video game or not knowing a trick to a boss fight is not that common anymore thanks to the internet, but on the eShop, you have to really question if you've reached the real ending, or if you're doing something wrong. Keep this in mind for later. Witch and Hero is a game that has gotten mostly bad press for being a slow and tedious level grinding game. For those who didn't have to review the game, that was where Witch and Hero was good. It was a great time waster to play while doing something mundane like waiting for water to boil, waiting for the bus, or something pretty simple to play in bed. Eventually once you've acquired enough upgrades, the game gets pretty easy for its remaining levels until the final boss fight. The final boss is the most ridiculous final boss ever. It takes far too many hits to kill, you have no where near enough health even at the level cap, and the final parts of the fight basically depend on dumb luck to survive. I eventually beat it, and swore I'd never play it again. Yet for some reason I kept going back, as if I knew something was missing. Of all the insanely difficult games I had played and beaten, why was this game so unreasonably hard? I then took the task of recording myself beating the final boss to prove it was possible, despite being so insanely hard. It took many attempts, but I eventually got a lucky run where I beat it a second time, this time on camera! It was a perfect video with a steady camera, great lighting, perfect audio recorded directly from the 2DS headphone jack into my computer, and so on and so forth. As I was uploading the video to youtube, I still couldn't shake the feeling something was missing. I again started thinking about if I really did just miss something, and if the video would end up being an embarrassment. After quite a fair amount of time google searching the game, I discovered what was making me feel the way I was. There was indeed a trick to it, and it was a big one. I shouted "WHAT?!" and immediately tried it out. The boss suddenly became a complete joke compared to what I had been doing, and the reality was sinking in that I was totally tricked. Never in my life had I felt as completely embarrassed and stupid as when I learned the trick to the final boss of Witch and Hero. The final boss fight is against a giant eyeball, and it tracks your movements and fires projectiles. However you can position where the eye is looking by using the L and R buttons, thus altering where it shoots. It may sound like something impossible to figure out, but they give multiple hints that should be enough for anyone to get it, and honestly it's a reinforcement of the most basic gameplay tip of all time, and the overall moral of the story. Press every button to see what it does. The boss is so much easier with this bit of knowledge, and it totally fixes the one part I hated about the game. So I now have to correct myself and say that anyone interested in Witch and Hero, I first suggest downloading the demo. If you don't enjoy the demo, don't download the game. If you DID enjoy the demo, I wholeheartedly recommend Witch and Hero, so long as you remember that the key to the final boss is L and R . One thing's for certain, I definitely got my four dollars worth out of Witch and Hero, as well as a life lesson about things not always being as they seem. I at one point called the final boss of Witch and Hero impossible. The best response to that is still from a wise muppet in a swamp, would would have said to me "That is why you fail". No matter what the game is, try your best to find enjoyment in it for whatever reason. Sometimes a bad game just needs a bit of a shot to the arm with the imagination of a goofball :).
