Nine Witches: Family Confusion Review

It was 1944 and the Third Reich is retreating. The war seems to have been defeated, but Adolf has a dirty ace on his sleeve. He sent the occult-SS and its leader Friedrich von Schiller to the far end of Norway to inspire the dark forces of the occult. With the help of the kidnapped witch, Friedrich, among other things, performs a ritual to create a second dark moon, covering the moon that has grown to love us and immersing the world in the dark.

You play Professor Alexei Krakowitz of quadriplegia and his assistant Akio Kagazawa. You are an occult expert and it is your responsibility to bring the world back to some sort of normal state. Friedrich von Darka settles in a remote Norwegian village called Sunday and celebrates the end of the world with a bipartisan called Oktoberfest. Your mission is to steal the identity of the German filmmaker Otto Von Celluloid and infiltrate the Okkulte-SS. This will save the world from the incredible worms, zombies and German techno music.

Nine Soresses: Family Confusion is a traditional graphic adventure Monkey island Flick between Alexei and Akiro on a regular basis while exploring Sunday. Most of his time is inevitably spent as an akilo, as his goodness means he can interact with the environment, open doors and pick up things. He is also armed so he can participate in some of the very simple shooter sections of Nine Witches. Yeah, you read it correctly: Shooter section.

Alexei represents a lot of the original Nine Witches, so he’s never on the sidelines. Since he is a spiritual medium, he can throw his body away with the push of a B button. In a spiritual form, Alexei can do many useful things: he can move through a locked door and see what’s on the other side. He can “ping” the environment with a kind of spirit radar and highlight interactable objects. And in later sections he can learn to influence the environment in a more physical sense.

Knowing when to use Alexei or Akiro is one of the joys of Nine Witches. If you look for interactions and items with Akiro, switch to Alexei to see the landscape of the spirit world, and perhaps “ping” to find what you missed, you can see each scene from two different perspectives. However, we lost the count of the number of times we neglected to use Alexei. It’s entirely in us. The locked doors of graphic adventures are commonplace and I forgot that I could bypass them whenever I wanted. Ultimately, Alexei’s ability as a medium spawned some of Nine Witches’ outstanding moments.

The opposite was also true for the shooting section. The sudden gear shift from point-and-click to shooter didn’t really work and caused a strange genre of whiplash. These sections are played in the same isometric graphic adventure environment and are reasonably slow-paced issues. What this means is that they move to the enemy’s line of sight, shoot, move out of that line of sight to prevent you from being attacked, and want the enemy to stay in place when the bullet reaches the enemy. It means that you are out. It feels inaccurate and boring, but the first few battles are easy to get dirty, so don’t really care. However, towards the end, the battle will be much more difficult and you will reach the difficulty option.Inaccurate shootouts that require aggressive shootouts at the end of the other four shootouts avoid Shooting one enemy was like repeatedly hitting your face with leather gloves. The nine witches would have been better without them, but at least they are rare.

However, the two mistakes for a successful graphic adventure are how satisfying the gameplay logic is and the quality of the writing. Nine Witches: Family Disruption is both above average, a game that looks for people who think point-and-click hasn’t worked since LucasArts collapsed.

One of the reasons why logic and gameplay work together is that Nine Witches feels console player friendly. No need to click to move. Control the character with the analog stick and switch the character with RT. There is no library of verbs to call because you are manipulating three different actions. All of these are mapped to face buttons. You can look at it and use it (depending on the context) to open your inventory. This allows you to select the items you want to use in your environment. It may look minimalist, but it works really well. For Alexei, the controls shift a bit, but they’re just as simple.

The interaction itself rarely expands to the point where it is defined as a “puzzle” and requires a logical leap or a large number of items. A good point-and-click test is an embargoed review where there is no online walkthrough. At the top of the fifth chapter of the six, only one big problem ended (Eklipse Fest, we hate you). This is easy, but not as easy as it feels like everything has been handed over to you.

Nine sorcers are very rarely trapped in most graphic adventures. There you will not be able to do what you can do in the real world. Bars only work if you want them to work in the game. Even if skeletons and corpses are scattered all over Sunday, you still need to find “bone fragments”. But in general, puzzles are logical, wonderfully destructive. When there was a great reference to The Legend of Zelda’s “Lost Forest” metaphor and the solution was very simple, I completely rethought everything. The in-game store was also cracked as it accumulated money almost passively as it progressed, and the puzzle solution required checking for new products.

The world and the stories within it are Hellboy’s horror lights, the way the Raiders of the Lost Ark ends, but humor-soaked. These funny flavors come in a variety of flavors, some of which are superior to other flavors. Prank and wordplay cause a smile, as you’ve already noticed in some of the names that clutter this review, but the Nine Witches can be completely surprised, but in a good way a real dark streak. There is. For example, whenever I find socialist literature after a puzzle, I know I can take them to “Flamenbuff”, a vending machine that accepts (and burns) communist propaganda in exchange for coins. So I was rooting for myself.that is darkness. There is a sequence of chicken slaughter going to a horrifying, pitch-black place.

The fourth wall breaks regularly, and the game developers themselves pop out several times. What doesn’t work is pure. In a very witty and dark game, the flatulence joke stopped landing and, above all, raised his eyebrows. General Sauerkraut complaining is the biggest criminal in both senses. But in general, when a blunder tries to hit an interesting bone, the nine witches hit more than it misses.

Nods to the graphics. The graphics are pixelated, but still have an atmosphere. I sometimes stopped and admired the landscape, and the lighting (is it still considered lighting when everything is pixel art?) Was top notch. The soundtrack is just as cheerful and miserable whenever the game needs it.

In just 6 hours, Nine Witches: Family Disruption is more than welcome. The plot doesn’t really go far beyond the initial setting and rarely crosses Sunday’s boundaries, but a small story and character make up for it. You will save the world with a smile, and you will probably forget it in a week or so. Occasionally, such a fun but disposable approach is good.

Nine Witches: Family Confusion on Xbox We have never reinvented the Graphic Adventure Wheel and it is not on the year-end list. But what it does is tell a creepy and creepy story, tickle your ribs as it does, and wrap it all in a frustrating experience. Having saved the world with them, we are happy to chase Alexei and Akiro on other supernatural excursions.
