Maria the Witch
Developer: Naps Team
Cute visuals can't prevent Maria the Witch from being anything other than an incredibly lazy port of an already mediocre and generic mobile clone. A derivative, boring and regularly frustrating experience that has had no care applied in bringing it to Nintendo Switch. The laborious gameplay and obtuse controls, combined with bland, uninspired level design and by-the-numbers progression, reduce it to being one of the most disposable titles on the system. Don't let the admittedly pleasant art style fool you - Maria the Witch really isn't worth taking for a spin.
Maria the Witch may feature some interesting visuals but once the dust settles, it becomes obvious that there is nothing in this game that makes it worthy of spending any time and attention. Due to completely nonperforming controls that would drive the most experienced player to despair, Maria the Witch is an experience that is not recommended to anyone.

All in all Maria The Witch has some good points, like the art style and the colorful settings but, ultimately, it's pretty hard to recommend a game as frustrating as this one. At first glance, I thought it would be a good looking and relaxing platformer, but it is a shallow game that is challenging just for the sake of being challenging.
Maria the Witch is a decent mobile to console port, it works just like the mobile and the Steam version and holds up well with the enlarged graphics. The game can get challenging and be frustrating at times but that's all part of the package - with it's quick respawns and fast gameplay, the game wants you to give it 'just one more try'!
