    Gameplay - 3/10. Graphics - 6.5/10. Sound - 4.5/10. Overall - 4.7/10. Really just not a good game. 4.7 speaks for itself: Just below average. I had a good time playing it, but I will seriously never play it again. There

    The trailer seemed much more convincing, that's for sure. First I'd give this game 10/10 sound. Instantly. The music is absolutely enchanting and really gets you inside the game, the introduction is great the character's designs are great, The story was okay, but that's as good as it gets. The gameplay, whether you walk or battle is entirely stylus based. Buttons in this game are almostThe trailer seemed much more convincing, that's for sure. First I'd give this game 10/10 sound.

The gameplay, whether you walk or battle is entirely stylus based. Buttons in this game are almost useless. You get random battle encounters like in final fantasy, which is pretty annoying here since the stages are huge and are entirely puzzle based, so you want to avoid battles as much as you can, and get to the boss cutscenes for more story since after the introduction you rarely get any talking. This may be one of the easiest RPG's ever, just the "use the same effective spell until the target dies" strategy. To get the real ending of the game you have to beat it twice, which will be significantly faster on your second run, more than twice as fast but still, it is kind of unlikely that the player will have patience to beat such a repetitive game twice=s That was my honest review, all n' all it's an okay game, definitely one I must say is "NOT for anyone".

    A Witch's Tale is the teacher who says 'look, but don't touch.' [Sept 2009, p.97]

    It is quite possibly the easiest RPG ever made, which will unquestionably turn off many people, but if that isn't an issue for you, there's plenty of style and charm to be found.

    As cute as A Witch's Tale is, its weak gameplay and slopped-together feel aren't to be appreciated by anyone. [Nov 2009, p.86]
