Publisher: CIRCLE Entertainment
Genre: Adventure, Retro, RPG
There's a lot of retro revival going on lately. Be it through high-definition remakes, long-deserved sequels, or even just aesthetics that hark back to a time when things were blockier: that 8-bit look is the new black.
So, it didn't surprise me one bit when I came to review Witch & Hero to discover an 8-bit game built upon the principles of retro-based fun.
What I wasn't expecting, however, was something quite so quirky underneath those beautiful - but forgettable - old skool aesthetics.
Having set off to fight Medusa - that snake-haired Gorgon of Greek mythology - Witch and Hero (those are actually their names) realise they aren't up to the task at all.
It may be simple and it may rely far too heavily on its lush 8-bit visuals, but Witch & Hero provides you with some simple, silly fun on your 3DS in short bursts
