Witch It – a new dynamic adventure based on magic which takes place just before All Saints Day. You immerse yourself in a rather funny and extraordinary atmosphere with an active gameplay. You will go to a dark town which is inhabited by treacherous witches. A lot of jobs are waiting for you, and the performance is given a certain period of time.
The whole point is to split into two different teams that are persecuting the witches. One of the teams can arm themselves with torches and pitchforks and then go in search of another team, which consists of witches, and they, in turn, have destructive magical powers. The whole feature is that witches have the ability to hide and can turn into anything, be it a jug or a bush.
Your task is to correctly guess the location of the treacherous warrior.
The game is very simple, so it does not have a full story. Hunters and witches, the age-old standoff, alone use magic and other various skills. And this confrontation will last forever.
For hunters and for any shooter, the standard is move, shoot and use one of the selected skills. Witches do not shoot but can fly as well, and the whole control is simple and intuitive.
Immediately get into an online battle. Teams are distributed randomly:
In their arsenal, they initially have only one skill, which, by the way, is the most effective. Hunters are always in the minority, and it is more difficult to win for them, but the search process is no less fascinating. Witches just run around the map or else turn into various objects in which they can also move.
Our task is to shoot at various suspicious lying objects in search of witches which are scattered everywhere as they’re in huge numbers. So, there are a few skills, and the best of them is chicken. Throw it and if the chicken feels the witch, it will starts glowing with a special aura signaling. So, we know that evil is somewhere near, but it could be right in front of your nose; maybe behind a house wall or on a roof which is not easy for the big guys to climb.
When we find the enemy, just shoot his potatoes. Witches are not so little health, so often if bad aim they manage to slip away and change the location.
There are always more players in this team. Witches are fast and agile, but their main feature is they can transform into any objects, except walls, doors and, of course, huge houses.
Turning into something, we can also move or change shape to another more suitable object. That is when the hunter finds us; it’s not the end of the game; you can jump away from him, dodging attacks and change shape to something else.
In the arsenal, there are a couple of spells. The most interesting thing is to cloud the enemy’s mind, the hunters then invert control, the left becomes the right, and the right changes to the left. The aim in such circumstances and especially the habit is extremely problematic.
While quite a few arenas have been made, we hope there will be more maps. The battle begins with finding a good place to hide. Hunters are in a closed room. Next, is the style of play of each participant. Someone who likes to hide on the roofs, someone to turn into the smallest objects and find the most inaccessible places, someone who can turn into something. So, between players, there is an endless game of mind, which makes the game fun and entertaining.
There are two game modes. Standard, two teams, hunters win. If you have time in the allotted time round to kill all the witches to one, the witches win; if the end survives, at least one. The system is very straightforward.
The second mode is a more complex version for witches. In this mode, after death, a witch becomes a hunter. At the end of the round is usually the hunters so that the poor witches simply have nowhere to go.
Interesting and very atmospheric graphics style is fully consistent with what is happening.
