Little Witch Nobeta Reviews
Little Witch Nobeta makes for a fun old-school action shooter. It's just a shame that this particular witches' brew is filled with so much unnecessary and bland garnish that serves only to dilute the taste.
Little Witch Nobeta is a fun blend of shooting and Souls mechanics, but the Switch port has some framerate issues
Though it seems like a simple anime dungeon crawler, Little Witch Nobeta is a fun romp with an excellent combat system and fantastic world-building. It also features some great exploration full of plenty of secret rooms and treasures to find and I found myself lost for hours just looking for that next little collectable or scroll to level up my magic. Little Witch Nobeta takes what made a lot of the souls formula great and introduces it to the more casual player.
A charming title that doesn't overstay its welcome; Little Witch Nobeta is a fun, if occasionally repetitive, journey of discovery. Well utilised mechanics and some epic boss fights make this a good choice for veterans of the Souls-like genre and newcomers alike.
Little Witch Nobeta is a quality game that deserves to do well. It’s a pity The Internet had to happen all over its Steam reviews, but try and ignore the stench and just enjoy the game on its own merits. It’s a well-crafted, challenging but accessible game with solid mechanics, an intriguing story and plenty of things to discover across multiple playthroughs. And I’d love to see plenty more games like this.
I mostly enjoyed my time with Little Witch Nobeta, especially with its gratifying combat and consistent character enhancements. However, it's still a rather clunky game that could greatly benefit from a map and more distinct environments.
Little Witch Nobeta is not for me, but then I’m not certain who it is for. It is a catastrophic fumbling of the bag with a narrative that makes no sense, combat that feels far too basic, puzzles that don’t even warrant a mention, and a distinctly unappealing target demographic. The only magic I want from Nobeta is a disappearing act.
Little Witch Nobeta isn’t a Souls-like in the traditional sense, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Like a cunning crone, developer Pupuya Games have skillfully combined seemingly disparate ingredients to create something magical. Still, genre veterans may find themselves put off by the lack of challenge to be found in the title’s beginning hours, and the stark contrast between its whimsical protagonist and the grim world she inhabits can admittedly, at times, be a bit jarring. If these things don’t bother you and you’re a fan of Souls-likes who’s looking for something more forgiving, or perhaps a bit cuter than what you’d usually expect from the genre, Little Witch Nobeta is sure to leave you under its spell.
Little Witch Nobeta’s charming character designs belies a dark world that the simple but enjoyable story is set against all while offering entertaining fast-paced spell-shooting combat.
Even with imperfections, Little Witch Nobeta does not lose its characteristic shine; after all, having an entire castle to explore with the powers of a staff that blasts away countless enemies is an incredible feeling to experience. With that, Nobeta's adventure manages to enchant in a majestic way as we follow in the footsteps of a mysterious black cat, heading into the unknown.

Little Witch Nobeta combines the fun of a shooter with the difficulty of a soulslike with an anime sense of style in a natural way.
Action and fantasy RPG in which the shooter side of the game uses different magics. Its combat is challenging and fun, but its story and levels don't really shine.

I’m very happy that I gave Little Witch Nobeta a chance. This is a third-person action title with a nimble mage that focuses on precision movements and timing, as well as using your wits to not get trapped by hard-hitting foes. It accomplishes its goal with aplomb.
My only complaint with Little Witch Nobeta is that I wish there was just more of it to enjoy. Even for a Souls-like game, it’s pretty short and I clocked in about 9 hours before the credits rolled. That said, within that time span, I was left consistently impressed by its razor-sharp level design, strong enemy and boss design, and smart application of its unique mechanics. Nobeta may be little, but she leaves a big impression.
