Witches & Vampires: The Secrets of Ashburry
Since my poor DS hasn’t been shown a lot of love lately I figured I’d get a new game to play on it, so I began to look for a game that could hold my attention for more than five minutes. My search brought me to the game Witches & Vampires: The Secrets of Ashburry, which of course caught my eye, I mean you’ve got witches AND vampires!
“Meet Aluna, a witch; her brother Dariel, a vampire; and her little sister Samantha, a half witch, half vampire. These three siblings are about to embark on an adventure to save a family heirloom – and the world. Recover six amulets of power before a wicked vampire beats you to it. Use each character’s special abilities and powers to fight against the vampire’s dark forces. Play magical mini-games that include creating potions, collecting ingredients, and flying on a broomstick. Work as a family to recover all six amulets and save the world before it’s too late!”
While it clearly seems like a children’s game, it still sounds pretty kickass. Plus, it’s an action adventure, which is usually my favorite type of game to play, next to RPGs. However, the two reviews I have read on this game are absolutely terrible, both reviewers trashed the game and gave it super lows scores. Since I tend to love the games other people hate, I’m thinking I may give the game a shot either way, after all it’s only two reviews, and two isn’t enough to keep me away.
What about you guys, have you played this game, if so what did you think? If you haven’t played it but know of other rad games I can play on my DS please share, I’m in serious gaming mode right now, and digital Scrabble can only keep me entertained for so long.
