Witch & Hero (3DS eShop)

Game Profile

Witch & Hero is an 8-bit style action game.

You play as a hero accompanied by a witch taking on the evil Medusa, whom has destroyed many villages and towns with the monsters that stand before her.

Medusa turned the witch into stone, so she is no longer able to move. So it's up to the hero to defeat the monsters and collect their blood in order to recover the witch for a limited duration. The witch's destructive magic easily destroys monsters, but you will have to rely on the hero's will power primarily. He is able to try and try again, but the witch cannot, thus the hero must protect her.


  • Retro 8-bit pixel graphics and sound, along with simple controls
  • Wipe out huge waves of monsters through 20 stages with 2 difficulties
  • Choose between Trial mode and infinite mode for an in-depth challenge

It looks nice, but the developer doesn't seem to have the best reputation, judging by the review scores of their previous efforts. Consider me tentatively interested.



BakaKnight said:

The retro style look so catchy!
Who said that HD visuals are the one making the stronger impressions? XP

Really hope it will be a game as interesting as the screenshots and the description hint

I downloaded it this morning and played it in the bus. It's kinda fun. But tough as well. At stage 4 at the moment.

@Boukman How did they do the 3d on the game? I'm very interested to see how a 2d top view game looks with the 3d screen effects. I love the 2d look of the game but really want to see a video how it looks



Windy said:

@KnightRider666 Let us know when you get this. I would love to see your take on it. I think your going to like it. It's already a cheapy but I wish Circle would drop the price about a dollar. It may appeal to more people if they do that. I think it would definately boost sales on Witch and Hero
