Witcheye is fun, and it’s cute, and it’s got some great visuals and a cool control system. I think it’s the perfect game to vibe to something else with, which is a type of experience that everyone with a short attention span like me needs.

All in all, Witcheye is a cute little platformer. Its movement mechanic can be a little annoying at times, but overall it is a nice change of pace from what you would expect from others in the genre. Though short and simple due to its mobile origins, there's a lot of extra content to unlock to add to the replayability if you feel inclined to keep going. Even if you don't though, for the price, Witcheye could certainly do a lot worse.

Witcheye is a quirky platformer with an innovative movement system, and it's well worth playing if you're after a fresh, bite-size handheld-focused experience. Removed from its mobile context, however, it doesn't quite have the necessary tactile appeal to overcome the game's relative lack of depth. Fun as it is, this is one mobile port that doesn't feel perfectly at home on Switch.

Witcheye uses an unusual concept in a creative title. Controlling a witch transformed into a floating eye is intuitive, and there are many interesting moments throughout the journey. Combat, in particular, is highlighted because of the diversity of enemies and situations, which resemble small puzzles. The play sessions are agile because of the short stages and the fast pace, but sometimes the simplicity and problems with the controls are annoying. In the end, Witcheye is a brief, unique and fun experience, even if not very memorable.

While Witcheye did not blow me away with its simple mechanics or lack of challenge, it was a rather fun distraction between the more complex time sinks in my collection.

Simply put, Witcheye is a very cleverly created game about role-reversal, and what could potentially happen after seeing the credit roll and the quintessential “The End” at the conclusion of a game. Although I do think that more could have been done to enhance certain aspects of the game—namely in terms of level build—this bite-sized story of witchy revenge is still worth spending the few bucks that it asks for in exchange for an enjoyable afternoon of gaming.

Witcheye is an eye-popping game in all of those departments, not just as a cheeky pun for closing out a review. If you’re looking for a unique kind of platformer to play, be sure to check it out.

Witcheye is a uniquely fun (and undeniable kooky) adventure that has made the move from mobile devices to the Nintendo Switch smoothly. Sure, it’s not particularly testing and its gameplay mechanics are fairly simple in design, but it does more than enough to entertain across its fifty-plus levels. Admittedly, Witcheye probably won’t blow players way due to its simplicity and it can take a bit of tinkering to get used to its control scheme, but anyone who fancies a quick and quirky romp on their Nintendo Switch will certainly enjoy Mabel’s escapade.
