A cute little book/app mashup that will get your kids excited about reading, just in time for Halloween.

Not so much?


The mini games will be too challenging for your very young techies, so they'll likely need a little help from parents.

Just in time for Halloween, Slim Cricket releases a brand new interactive storybook about a kindly witch who just wants to find a sweetheart.

Ah, love. Everyone seems to want to find it, but there isn’t any surefire way to make that happen – as the titular witch in our story soon finds out. As the story begins, we meet the witch as she discusses her crush on the most popular guy in town. Though her cute little friend bat cautions her to find love on her own terms and stay true to herself, the witch is determined to turn herself into someone that Merlinor can love. She doesn’t have a lot of time either, as Merlinor’s big party is tonight, and she’s determined to win herself and invitation. And so, the witch asks her magic mirror if she has what it takes to catch the eye of Merlinor, which sets her up on a journey to remake herself into someone he will like.

The witch visits a fashion designer to find just the right outfit, a broom dealership to get the trendiest new ride, and even gets lessons in etiquette from a proper mummy. It’s all in the hopes of winning Merlinor’s heart, but there seems to be another guy who has eyes only for the witch. Though the witch does everything possible to make things go smoothly, when she arrives at the party she soon finds that Merlinor is not the man she thought he was, and that true friends are worth fighting for.

Is the Witch in Love? is a perfect Halloween diversion for your young techies. The story itself is adorable, and the top notch voice acting really makes the characters come alive. Players have the choice between having the story read to them, or reading it themselves, making it a great choice for sneaking a little reading practice into game time. Each of the pages in the story is interactive, with all kinds of little animations to find. There are also some fun games to play, which help advance the story. You’ll reassemble the pieces of the magic mirror, play a memory game to deck the witch out in the latest fashion, have a street race with a vampire, and learn the proper way to eat eyeball soup. All of the games are quite fun, but not overly hard for young players. This engaging play, combined with colorful artwork and an appealing story, makes for an app your kids will ask to play again and again.
