Little Witch Nobeta is a 3D action game developed by Pupuya Games. Players take on the role of Nobeta, a magical girl who is on the hunt for a mystery hidden within herself, and explore an ancient castle where demons roam.
The game is a 3D action-adventure, where the player must defeat the enemies in the stage and solve the traps in various locations to move forward. To move Nobeta, press the W, A, S, and D keys. During combat, activate magic with a mouse click to hit the enemy in the face with energy bullets.
In addition to normal magic attacks, Nobeta can use an elemental charge attack based on the attributes of the element. Its power is so great that it can penetrate barriers that reject normal attacks and bury enemies in the landing zone with a single shot.
However, it takes about five seconds to charge, so be careful not to let enemies aim at your unprotected state. If you feel yourself in danger, use emergency evasion to get out of the area.
In a certain place in the stage, a powerful boss is waiting for you to defeat Nobeta. Since this boss is incomparably stronger than enemies, you can't avoid game over if you run into it rashly. First of all, observe the behavioral pattern of the opponent, and then use magic to take advantage of the opportunity after attacking.
Including the boss battles mentioned above, the story of this game is gradually unraveled by inserting event scenes at various times, such as when clearing a stage or passing through important points. There are many scenes that remind you of the cuteness of Nobeta, which will make your cheeks loosen up as you play.
On the other hand, the difficulty level is high, and if you're not careful, you'll die a quick death right from the start. In a way, this gap may be the essential charm of Little Witch Nobeta. Challengers who want to get out of a pinch after trial and error, as well as those who want to be healed by Nobeta's smiling face, should definitely give this game a try.
