Witch's Wish is a heavily story-based game that moves at a relatively slow pace. This might turn off kids who are too used to constant action in a video game. But for kids who are keen on games with engrossing narratives, Wtich's Wish can prove quite rewarding. There are sections, especially earlier in the game, when you will spend minutes at a time just watching the story, waiting for your chance to interact, but when you do, it's pretty fun. Using the touchscreen to choose and cast spells works very well, and there's no penalty for choosing incorrectly -- you just try again with a different spell. Witch's Wish will not cast its spell on everyone, but its the type of different and original game that could prove to be a favorite for the right kind of kid.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
