Game plot and storyline
The game Witch It has hunters searching for witches. The witches have to hide, and the hunters need to seek them. The witches have magical powers and can turn into any object and hide. Seeking is not so easy because of the power the witches have. Hunters are determined to find the witches and leave no stone unturned to find the witches. You can play the game either as a witch or as a hunter- the choice is yours.
If you choose to be a witch, then you need to hide and look for innovative ways to use your powers to go undetected. If you face the threat of being caught, you need to escape quickly before the hunters capture you. Since it is a multiplayer game, there are two teams, one of ‘witches’ and the other of ‘hunters.’ There are different backgrounds and a large map with many places to hide.
You can choose to be a hunter, in which case you are a human who wants to hunt down the witches. Seeking is not as easy as hiding, which is obvious. There are many places a witch can hide, and since the witch can turn herself into anything, you need to work hard to find out where the witch is. You can throw potatoes at objects to find out if it is a witch in hiding. You need to keep your eyes open while playing. Once you spot the witch, you need to fire fast to prevent the witch from escaping.
This is a fun game that you can enjoy playing. Depending on whether you like to hide or hunt, you can choose to be a witch or a hunter. It is more fun being a witch as you have more places to hide and use your magical powers. Once hidden, you just have to sit still watching hunters run around desperately trying to find you out. When the hunter comes near, you can cast a spell and try to escape from the hunter. You need to be fast to evade the hunter, or else, you will be shot down. Playing the game as a hunter is tougher as you have more work to do.
The game has three modes that make it all the more interesting:
- a) Hide and Seek mode – Hunters should find all witches to win.
- b) Mobification – A witch captured becomes a hunter and joins the hunter team.
- c) Hunt a Hag – No skills and abilities activated in this game.
- d) Fill a Pot – Witches win if they fill three out of the five cauldrons.
The game has twelve maps with different backgrounds to make the game more interesting. The graphics and animation are good and allow you to enjoy the game. As you play the game, you can unlock new skills and new ingredients for use in the cauldron.
