Witch Day is an adventure that reminds Zelda and other games. Saying that, you play the role of old lady named Anabel that comes into the town to visit her granddaughter Ángela but something happened as she arrives… After a while, your character wakes up with his memory lost and then she starts looking for Ángela.

Your mission is to find Ángela, so you should walk the whole town talking to people, getting objects to get further as you investigate what is going on here…

You have three basic keys to use during the game: open doors, talk and do actions (push, take, search, etc.). It is important to pay attention to all the screens in order to find clues and directions to complete the adventure.

Witch Day is available in English and Spanish languages. Will you accept the challenge and put your faith to the test? Help this little old lady to find her loved granddaughter.

The texts are displayed too slowly.

It seems the game is corrupted after you fall in the well.
I've not tried yet in a real MSX, but in BlueMSX and WebMSX it does the same:

just keep clicking space and it will go on. I think it is meant to symbolize that you are partly conscious.

I would appreciate a softer sound when printing text. That little beep is ok for shorter texts (e.g.: titles), but when there is a lot of text, it can get really annoying Sad

Indeed, a softer sound and faster display of the text would make the game enjoyable.

Hi, I`m looking for a game similar to Legend of Zelda.
Can you compare WD with LoZ?

I was recently pointed towards Golvellius, which, for some reason never played back in the day and it is amazing. You need to print out the translations of the messages, but it's not big deal.

I think I searched all bodies of water. How about a screenshot with an arrow pointing to the exact location ?

Hello mzoran,
I'll help you.

SPOILER ALERT:
You need to find a key. You can find it in a room where there is a table with 8 chairs and 2 tables with 2 chairs each one. You can find the key at the lower right part of the screeen.

Thank you ListoMefisto. Now I am stuck in episode 5. I have found gunpowder and stuffed it down that hole. Also, not sure what that was, seen those eyes looking left and right. Now I need to find some kindling to blow up the gunpowder.
In that encampment nothing can be found and around trees also nothing. Any hints ?
