The Heroes

One to four players can select one of seven heroes with different starting weapons, as well as Melee, Magic and Archery skill levels. Local co-op, LAN and online multiplayer mode are available. In the current Early Access version, five characters are already available:

  • Knight (melee combat specialist, starts with armor that reduces damage)
  • Sorceress (ranged magic attack, can create food to heal players)
  • Druid (ranged magic attack, can add poison effect to any weapon)
  • Pyromancer (shoot fireballs, immune to fire)
  • Archer (master of bow and arrows, start with additional inventory slot)

You can unlock characters by completing various quests in the game. The final version will have two more playable characters.Items, weapons and loot

Boost your strength, magic and other abilities with new weapons, potions, scrolls and items you can discover on your adventure. Grab enemy weapons when they drop them or discover hidden treasure stashes. Here are some weapons and items already available:

The game already has over 100 items and weapons with different effects. Many items have synergies. For example drinking a Gold Diet potion allows you to eat gold, but if you find an Appetite potion as well it will boost the effect and enable you to restore a lot of health. Voodoo Doll allows you to hurt enemies from a distance, but if you combine if with a high-damage item like a Meteor Staff or a Bomb it can be much more effective.

Characters with good archery skills can combine different bows and arrows, for example:

Hitting an enemy would freeze it for a while, but after that passes, there's a chance he will also be slow and much easier to fight against. Saving special arrows for bosses and difficult enemies is a good strategy.Pets

Adopt one of 25 different pet companions. Each has a different effect. The Penguin freezes enemies. The Ram knocks them down. The Bat attacks in the air. The Chicken shows you the path with least enemies. The Dog fetches hard to reach items and weapons. The Turtle acts as an unbeatable decoy and the Bird's feathers improve your archery skill. If you find a Wolf to lead the pack and keep them in order, you can adopt multiple pets at the same time.Always more to explore
The game has permadeath. Once you die, you start a new game. A different world is created on each playthrough. The layout of the levels is different, there are different numbers and types of enemies; and different treasures and items sold in shops. There are many spells the characters can use, and archers have a wide assortment of special types of bows and arrows at their disposal. Because of this, each new game poses a new challenge. You will get a subset of weapons, items and enemies and might need to use a different strategy. Any two subsequent plays could be quite different.Various ways to complete levels
There's a big boss at the end of each level. You can beat him up with a melee weapon, petrify him with Medusa Arrows, or use a magic scroll to turn him into a sheep. There are shops that you can try to loot if you can beat the shopkeeper's armed friends. Enemies drop usable items and weapons often. For example, a Goblin Shaman has a voodoo doll which you can use to mark enemies and hurt them from a distance. You can even toss the doll into a campfire and set enemies on fire, or anything else you can think of.Monsters and bosses

The final game will feature seven areas: forest, battlements, the keep, dungeon, catacombs, caves and the frozen mountain. Each area will have a couple of specific bosses that randomly show up on different play-throughs.

Each area also has a different set of enemies, separated into the following factions:
  • Goblins
  • King's Guards
  • Thieves
  • Undead (skeletons, zombies, vampires)
  • Animals (wild boars you can ride, bugs that drop weapon upgrades, bats, hornets, etc.)

Each faction has regular units and special ones that are bigger and harder to beat. Like this barbarian that the shop keepers like to hire for security:

The Story

My Mom is a Witch reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Product received for free developed and edited by Bigosaur, son of a witch is a Beat'em up, Roguelike, Dungeon crawler, which transports us into a funny world and fills with troll and other enemies of all kinds. Featuring several playable heroes and a local and multi Coop mode, and many other modes, is son of a witch to keep us in suspense? This is our express test. His of a witch is Beat'em up Roguelike offering a cute style and a very simple but extremely complicated solo mechanics. In this game, you find yourself controlling one of the heroes of your choice, which you will unlock as your advanced. Each of these heroes have their fighting styles, which offer body-to-body or distance, depending on your choice. You will advance in dungeons of several halls, always offering the same style, mobs area, secret zone, shop and boss area. In son of a witch, we're going to have to dig in and find the perfect weapon to overcome the dungeon bosses. Only two attack keys are proposed, normal attack and powerful attack, after that you will just have to type and type. No jumping, Dodge or other, the goal is to progress by coming to grips with everything that moves or almost. Remote combat offers a better approach to the solo adventure, more free of your movements, you can progress more easily in the game than a body has body, which will ask you to be close to enemy troops who will never make gifts . Death is inevitable in this game, so you will often redo the first levels before you really get into the bath. But son of a witch offers a random Dungeon system, which allows you to never really relive the same Dungeon, only the enemies and the boss of the Dungeon remains the same, for the rest nothing is the same. As each weapon proposes its style, it will have to search every nook to find the one that will benefit you, and sometimes you will have to die to find the right, because the automatic generation of dungeons is not very fair, and sometimes you can find yourself with useless weapons that will be more of a burden to come to grips with a boss. The game offers a multitude of contents, and you in the course of your adventure, you will be able to pick up in the body of your enemies in addition to weapons, different potions offering different effects, run faster, invulnerable, care, mana... but also objects that will cause confusion in the enemy and magical scrolls not always very understandable. To progress well, you will have to unlock the other characters of the game that sometimes will be more useful than the Knight and the witch available from the beginning. Five other characters are unlockable in the following Pyromancer, Archer, skeleton and barbarian, always proposing either from body to Corps or from distance. The cooperation is very complete: local, online or even LAN, for a maximum of 4 players, unfortunately we have not been able to test the multi in LAN, but the system seems to be well thought out. You have to know that the game is very difficult solo, and you will have to go through the multi or the coop to come to grips with the game. Offering cute graphics with varied and colorful backgrounds with basic animations, the game remains a very nice success, the sequences of explosions and others are well managed, and some scenes like going up to the back of a dragon, and very well done for a small independent Studio like Bigosaur. We add to this a rather sympathetic OST, but unfortunately the sound effects take too much of the Basic. Finally, son of a witch is a complete game offering a wide choice of content, but remains a game to do with friends or in multi because too difficult on certain phases in solo. With his cute character style, we quickly attach to the game, but we die too fast solo and we desert very quickly once we remake the same Dungeon 10 to 20 times. Editor's note 7/10-perfect for many, but too hard solo. A very good rogue-like you can follow the Currateur couple of gamer for more reviews of games: couple of gamer
