It may not be Halloween yet, but 7 cute witches are already doing battle with magic and sorcery galore in the fast-paced puzzle game known as Witch Wars! It’s time to put your skills up to the test and find out if you have what it takes to be the best of the witches!
Witch Wars involves you battling against an AI witch in a Bejeweled-like setting. It’s fun like Bejeweled but many times harder than Bejeweled because not only must you link three similar items together, but you must do so while trying to prevent your opponent in hindering your progress.
What do I mean by that? Simple. You’re given a puzzle board filled with handcuffs, spellbooks, coins, potions, and swords. When you link three of a similar icon together, you get little power boosts. For example, coins earn you, well, coins that allow you to level up your different skills. Spellbooks increase your skills gauge, and after you fill up a gauge, you touch it in order to use the skill in which the gauge was filled up for. Handcuffs lock some icons in your opponents’ puzzle, swords damage your opponents’ health, and potions make you healthy once more. At times, keys will appear in which you will use them to unlock whatever icons that your opponents locked away. Wow, so busy.
It’s a really busy game. It requires that you keep your eyes open in like three different areas: your health, your puzzle, and your skills gauge. You really have no time to look at your opponents’ own puzzle box. And what’s worse is that each witch that you fight has her own different set of skills and they do provide for a nice distraction. And each day that you play it, you earn bonus points and a character that you unlock to play with for that day…and who costs a lot of coins to play.
I’d say that it makes for quite an addicting game but you might find yourself a bit frustrated at times. Scratch that - most of the time. It also makes you nervous because you’re trying to go as fast as you can…and it doesn’t really help that when you hit enough combos in a row, your puzzle turns gold…and it makes everything just that much harder to look at. It’s bad enough that you get the distractions and you stare at small screen for a few minutes but those icons are way harder to connect when they are all the same color. Good luck!
I did find it fun, though, but just after a while, I had to stop. My eyes were hurting, I was getting jittery. It provides for a nice adrenaline boost, but at the cost at perhaps your mind and eyes. Play it when you’re bored but not for a long time. You’ll be thanking me for that.
