Review: Which witch is which?


Now that the Game Boy Color is standing on its last legs, the release of new games has begun to slow to a trickle. However, every once in awhile a good game may slip through the cracks; Wendy: Every Witch Way is just one of those games. Way Forward Technologies has put together a game showcasing their unique style and pizzazz in a not-so-ordinary platformer, starring Wendy the Good Witch from the popular Casper the Friendly Ghost. Wendy accidentally reverses the gravity of earth and she must set out on a quest in search of four Moon Stones that have the power to once again set things straight.

Even though Way Forward technologies incorporates the same graphics engine displayed in some of their other games, such as WWF Betrayal and Xtreme Sports, they have been able to change just enough to give Wendy a style all its own. Wendy boasts some crisp visuals and clean, but still detailed graphics and is also one of the most oddly colored games you have seen in awhile. This game also features some very unique creatures as well as a few well-crafted levels.

While the game may look like a traditional platformer the small ability to reverse gravity adds a ton of strategy to this game. This simple addition to the game has changed it from a standard platformer to one that involves a bit skill. You will need to control the gravity to maneuver around the mazelike levels contained within the game, but also to eradicate some of the many ghouls you shall encounter throughout your journey.

Though the game is aimed for younger kids, it provides a great deal of fun for anyone that would want to play it. But even though it is fun, since it is aimed for little kids, it is not that difficult to beat, even on the hardest setting. The game could quite possibly be beaten in close to an hour. As an added bonus to those of you who play this game on a GBA, there are 3 extra levels that are only playable on a Game Boy Advance.

Bottom Line
Though the game is short, it provides a great deal of fun for anyone who is willing to pick it up and give it a try. This would be a great game for anyone to get but especially it they were a younger child. The ability to manipulate gravity is a great addition to this otherwise standard platformer.
