Maria the Witch is a game by Naps Team. It grabs your attention by its cute graphics which look amazing and right at home on the Nintendo Switch! Let’s get to the review!
Maria The Witch
The game’s premise is that you control Maria’s Broom and try and get to the end of the stages. The story behind the game is that an Evil Monster has stolen all the mail and it’s your Job to try and get all the mail back! You do this by collecting coins and mail and reaching checkpoints where you can deliver the mail and buy unlockables. In each stage, there are different tasks that you can have to do achieve to be able to get all three stars per level.
Controls are a Mess! Luckily Maria Has a Broom
This is where the game starts to have its flaws, not within its premise but within its controls. I cannot adequately explain the controls because they are so unnatural. So, you move the broom forward by tapping the A button or Y button if you are going left on its 2D plane. Or you press the buttons for longer you start to turn upwards and this is where the problem lies. The controls are terribly frustrating to use, and you need the patience to learn the controls adequately. Later on in the game, this becomes a huge problem later on in the game where there need to be precise movements.
Should it have stayed on Mobile?
This game is one of the many games that are starting to appear on the mobile. Some say that these types of games are a senseless cash grab. However, I feel like this game fits the Nintendo Switch really well with its cute design and if you are prepared to master the controls then the game is great. The game is only £4.49 ($4.99) and right now it’s on sale for half price! So, if you were ever to get the game it would be now. This game just scrapes into the Pass Category.
