Witcheye Brings Eye-Popping Retro Action To Switch & PC Today

Now available on the Switch eShop and Steam, Moon Kid’s Witcheye hexes players in 16-bits


Witcheye, the 16-bit style adventure from retro-minded indie developer Moon Kid Games, is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop and Steam, publisher Devolver Digital has announced.

First released on Apple Arcade and developed by Peter Malamud Smith, the co-creator of the viral NES version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, Witcheye puts players in control of a witch who transforms into a flying eyeball hell-bent on revenge after a knight and wizard steal her precious spell ingredients. The game features 50+ levels to make your way through, each with their unique gimmick. Additionally, the Switch and PC versions of the game also introduce new enemies to set your sights on and secrets to uncover.
