Following the success of the W.I.T.C.H. Italian comic book and the French television series, Disney Interactive Studios, Inc. introduced the W.I.T.C.H. PC game as part of their extensive line-up of multi-platform video games and interactive entertainment. The video game was first released on the Game Boy Advanced platform in Europe in 2005 and later in the United States in 2006. The last release of the game was for the PC platform last August 21, 2008. Currently, the PC version appears to be available only in Europe.
This single player adventure game closely follows the first season of the animated television series of W.I.T.C.H. Users have full playable control over the five main protagonists who are Taranee, Will, Cornelia, Irma, and Hay Lin, the elemental W.I.T.C.H. Guardians tasked to defeat the sinister Prince Phobos. Designed for children, the graphics are two-dimensional and simple, while the dialogue is displayed on the lower half of the screen for easy reading. Players have to get through various obstacles using the girls’ elemental powers such blasting through crates with water or flying over spikes, with an option to switch between characters at any time. Sounds are also upbeat during gameplay as players go through all the levels to help the girls accomplish their mission of saving the world.
