W.I.T.C.H. is a platform game for the Game Boy Advance, available in Sweden, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, and the Republic of Ireland (unknown if available in the US). The game was published by Buena Vista Games. It was released in Europe in October 2005.
Video game based on the popular Disney franchise W.I.T.C.H. about five girls: Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia and Hay Lin who were chosen to protect Kandrakar, the center of the universe and other worlds, including Earth from evil. They are known as the Guardians of the Veil. They each have power over a different element: Energy (Quintessence), Water, Fire, Earth, and Air. In the game, you must use each of their unique powers to thwart the evil creatures of Meridian's plans. The game's storyline is based on season 1 of the show.
The game is divided into chapters, in which there are stages. Each Guardian and Caleb are playable characters and you go through missions which roughly follow that of the TV series. In the progress of the game, you will be able to use the powers of the five Guardians to go through obstacles and finally, defeat Phobos.
Each Guardian has the ability to fly as well as two unique elemental powers. Players are able to switch between the Guardians at any time, including after activating a certain power of one Guardian before combining her powers with the next. However, using elemental powers and flying drains energy from the Heart of Kandrakar meter displayed at the top of the screen, above the Health meter. Likewise, when characters endure damage bars from the health meter are lost. Caleb is also playable in his own centric levels. He can jump and use a sword and longbow. Blunk is a NPC who gives useful items in exchange for something he wants. The game has 20 levels in total. After beating the game, the player unlocks Kandrakar Mode, which allows each Guardian to use her abilities without drawing power from the Power Meter and gives Caleb unlimited arrows.
