The Knight Witch is being described as a Metroidvania style of game, but this is unlike any other Metroidvania style of game I have seen. With bullet hell shooter gameplay, deck building, and a morality kind of system. This is one of the most unique games I have had the pleasure to play this year. I can see this being a game a double dip on if they do decide to release a physical version for the switch at some point. You can check out a demo right now and I highly recommend that you do.
The War Golem Invasion!
The whole plot of The Knight Witch is something that I am finding to be a lot of fun. In this fantasy world, your home is under threat from these War Golems and you need to get to the bottom of it and find out why and also stop it. Unlike other games of this genre, I like the way that this game can keep you focused on the main story by making sure that you are always on track when it comes to what you have to do next to move the story along.
Friends Make You Stronger
Remember how I said there was a morality system here? Well, what I meant by that was your witch gets stronger through gratitude and friendship. This means that you have to deal with some fun and unique characters that will help you become stronger and also help move the story along as well. You ultimately get to decide how you want to help people and you can sometimes not be as “squeaky clean” as you would want to be. It is a neat gameplay mechanic and something quite unique for this genre.
Shooting, Carding, Exploring, And More
I could probably write 1000 words on how cool, unique, and fun the gameplay of The Knight Witch is! To start with, you have a lot of exploration here as you would expect from a game that has Metroidvania as one of its tags. However, you also have this fast-paced bullet hell shooter gameplay too which will keep you on your toes and make you want to get better and better at the game. Then we have the deckbuilding aspect, you can cast all kinds of spells in the game via these cards, and building the perfect deck ensures that you have a loadout that is suited to your gameplay. I know that I am making this sound complicated, but the gameplay flow is so well done here that it all just works perfectly!
Bright, But Also Dark!
One of the best compliments that I can give The Knight Witch is that this is a game that has some real substance, but it also oozes cool style as well. This is one of the best looking 2D games of 2022. The hand drawn art style that they have gone for is amazing, the colors, the flashes, the dazzling effects, and the quirky character designs make this such a feast for the eyes. What I love is that the game is super bright, but it also has some elements of dark fantasy about it as well which I thought was cool.
A bullet hell, deck building Metroidvania game with amazing visuals. That is the best description that I can think of for The Knight Witch. This is such a unique and fun game that it needs to be checked out by more people. The people behind this game have come up with something truly unique that manages to blend different genres together and make it not just work, but make it also be a ton of fun as well.
