Gameplay

Follow the journey of Bailey!

I absolutely loved the gameplay for Switchcraft. You follow the story of a girl called Bailey who has a vision of her best friend Lydia. To move through the story, you have to play match-3 games which isn’t the most creative concept in the world. However, this game also allows you to make your own decisions, reminding me of Choices.

On top of this, the story is actually a lot of fun to follow. I couldn’t help but desperately want to know what happened to Lydia!

Graphics

The graphics are unique!

The graphics are what stood out to me the most – I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. Each scene looked like a drawing and it really stood out from other similar games. Even the match-3 mini-games were cute and witchy!

Music & Sounds

The audio is pretty eerie at times, showing the mysterious aspect of the story. It fits well with a game based on a bunch of freshman witches!

Controls

Drag to control!

As you make your way through the story, you have to tap on the answer you want to choose. However, when in the mini match-3 games, you just swipe to match 3 or more gems together.

The Verdict

What did you think?!

I mostly enjoyed this game because of the storyline, however, the merge of two games along with the stunning graphics made it even more worthwhile. I really enjoyed Switchcraft and think you will too!
