'''''Trouble Witches''''' is a series of [[DoujinSoft doujin]] BulletHell CuteEmUp games by Studio [=SiestA=]. The series consist of two games, one of which has been re-released three times already with an "English" version of the PC game canceled sometime during its production, with a sequel currently under development.

'''''Trouble Witches Episode 1 ~Daughters of Amalgam~''''' (2007) is the first game of the series and debuted as a doujin PC game. The story is set in the [[MagicalLand magical country]] of Eihemland where a great witch named Amalgam has stolen [[MacGuffin a ring]] [[SealedEvilInACan sealing away a powerful devil]] known as the Draupnir, and divided the pieces of said ring amongst her children where they wreak havoc as they see fit. The king of Eihemland spread flyers all across the country with a award to anyone who can stop Amalgam and her daughters with any wish they desire.

The original PC game featured three witches to chose from: [[CuteWitch Pril]] [[IneptMage Patowle]], [[MagicIdolSinger Aqua]] [[BitchInSheepsClothing Seep]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes Seal]], and [[SpoiledBrat Yuki]] [[FieryRedhead Longate]], with [[CuteAndPsycho Sies]] [[RecurringBoss Fabric]] Tinydream as an [[UnlockableContent unlockable fourth character]] although she becomes immediately playable after the "Ver.2" update. Each character have their own shot type, strengths, and their own take on the storyline in a fully-voiced Story Mode. One of the unique aspects of the game is the risk-and-reward mechanics of the game, of which the Magic Barrier system where each witch can summon [[InstantRunes a barrier]] to slow down enemy fire and convert them into gold by destroying the enemy that originally fired the shots. However, this could work against the player if the enemies flees from the screen with their shots trapped in the barrier, which the bullets will zero-in on the player, or get blown away from the bullets if their MP runs out. The gold earned not only go towards ScoringPoints, but it can be used at the Pumpkin Sister's shop (which usually appears twice during each stage) to spend your gold on [[PowerUp Magic Cards]] and other goods such as [[OneUp 1-Ups]] and MP-boosting potions. The Magic Cards would give the user a different shot-type for brief periods of time, but destroying enemies under this effect would yield for score-boosting Star Coins, although taking a hit will knock the card out of you (though saves you from losing a life), and losing a life would also result in losing a fraction of Star Coins earned as well.

The developers originally had planned an updated version of the game for PC titled ''Trouble Witches AC'', however it was scrapped when the game got picked up for an arcade release instead in 2009 by Creator/{{Taito}}. The game ran on the Taito Type X arcade hardware and it did featured some of the WhatCouldHaveBeen aspects that was originally planned for the PC game, like introducing [[LoanShark Louis Leondyke]], [[CatGirl Cynfi]] [[CloudcuckooLander Porat]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Conon]] [[BrattyHalfPint Mildiazzhe]] [[CombatMedic Krakow]], and [[FortuneTeller Lyla]] [[GrumpyBear Arctauras]] into ''Episode 1'''s storyline along with some changes made to the original gameplay. Of course, this version of ''Trouble Witches'' also lacks much of the features the original PC game had, namely the fully-voiced Story Mode. The game later made it's way into the [=NESiCAxLive=] arcade service in Japan in 2012, which also brought back [[NoExportForYou Sies Fabric Tinydream]] into the game's roster of magical girls. At the time ''Trouble Witches AC'' was being produced, Studio [=SiestA=] were also in production of a self-made "English" release of the first game with ''The Tomboyish Witches ~With Amalgam's Cutie Girls~'', but like the updated PC version, it was also scrapped.

''Trouble Witches NEO!'' is the game's first-time venture into the mainstream market. Published by [[Creator/{{SNK}} SNK Playmore]] and released world-wide for the UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} via UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade on April 27th, 2011. It is essentially an [[VideoGameRemake enhanced port]] of ''Trouble Witches AC'' while featuring the return of the original game's Story Mode, a BossRush and Score Attack mode, introducing two new characters into ''Episode 1'' (one of which is DownloadableContent), co-op gameplay (both locally and online), updated visuals for widescreen presentation, [[ArtEvolution new character artwork]], [[MetaMultiplayer online leaderboards]], sharable replays, {{Achievements|System}}, and ''Trouble Witches AC'' as an added bonus. The two new witches introduced that are [[{{Miko}} Sakurako]] [[FanGirl Kujo]], an astrologist anime otaku who wants to become a witch like in her favorite MagicalGirl animes; and [[LadyOfBlackMagic Luca]] [[CuteMonsterGirl Yurievna]] [[Really700YearsOld Vinakol]], a downloadable devil princess with LightningBruiser-like qualities, MP almost double compared to every other witch in the game, and who's also madly in-love with the Draupnir.

Along with the return of the Story Mode, it also featured an option for English voice-overs as the developers puts it, "offers a full-voice dubbing in English and in Japanese to enjoy twice the game!", although its English localization is something this side of ''[[VideoGame/ShikigamiNoShiro Castle Shikigami II]]'' and ''VideoGame/ChaosWars'', with a heavily abridged story from its original PC counterpart, lots of [[DubNameChange name]] [[SpellMyNameWithAnS changes]] for the characters (for better or worse), and the included ''Trouble Witches AC'' is more-or-less the same game save for the most of the English voice-acting. It also lacks the personal score rankings, the ability to revisit past stages, and the ability to switch Magic Cards on the fly of the original game. Unfortunately, the game and its [=DLCs=] were [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes delisted from the Xbox Live marketplace]] in mid-late 2015.

''Trouble Witches Origin'' was released November 21, 2016 on Steam. Unlike Trouble Witches Neo, this is similarly based on the Original PC version with small changes added to the steam version (TWN!'s mechanics, 2 new spell cards, etc.), with a new character by the name of ''Fuminoimiki Kozakura'', who wears similar clothing to Sakurako Kujo. And also, the return of mid-boss ''Sies Fabric Tinydream'' being a playable character (Though she was previously playable in the original PC port and Nesica arcade version).

'''''Trouble Witches''''' is a series of [[DoujinSoft doujin]] BulletHell CuteEmUp games by Studio [=SiestA=] and Bouken.[=SiestA=]. The series consist of two games, one of which has been re-released three times already with an "English" version of the PC game canceled sometime during its production, with a sequel currently under development.



''Trouble Witches NEO!'' is the game's first-time venture into the mainstream market. Published by [[Creator/{{SNK}} SNK Playmore]] and released world-wide for the UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} via UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade on April 27th, 2011. It is essentially an [[VideoGameRemake enhanced port]] of ''Trouble Witches AC'' while featuring the return of the original game's Story Mode, a BossRush and Score Attack mode, introducing two new characters into ''Episode 1'' (one of which is DownloadableContent), co-op gameplay (both locally and online), updated visuals for widescreen presentation, [[ArtEvolution new character artwork]], [[MetaMultiplayer online leaderboards]], sharable replays, {{Achievements|System}}, and ''Trouble Witches AC'' as an added bonus. The two new witches introduced that are [[{{Miko}} Sakurako]] [[FanGirl Kujo]], an astrologist anime otaku who wants to become a witch like in her favorite MagicalGirl animes; and [[LadyOfBlackMagic Luca]] [[CuteMonsterGirl Yurievna]] [[Really700YearsOld Vinakol]], a downloadable devil princess with LightningBruiser-like qualities, MP almost double compared to every other witch in the game, and whose also madly in-love with the Draupnir. Unfortunately, the game and its [=DLCs=] were [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes delisted from the service]] in mid-late 2015.

Along with the return of the Story Mode, it also featured an option for English voice-overs as the developers puts it, "offers a full-voice dubbing in English and in Japanese to enjoy twice the game!", although it has GoneHorriblyWrong as it features terrible English voice-acting and translations this side of ''[[VideoGame/ShikigamiNoShiro Castle Shikigami II]]'' and ''VideoGame/ChaosWars''. Adding to the abysmal localization quality, the Story Mode is also abridged compared to it's original PC counterpart, lots of [[DubNameChange name]] [[SpellMyNameWithAnS changes]] for the characters (for better or worse), and the included ''Trouble Witches AC'' is more-or-less the same game save for the most of the terrible voice-acting. It also lacks the personal score rankings, the ability to revisit past stages, and the ability to switch Magic Cards on the fly of the original game.

Unfortunately, the game and its [=DLCs=] were [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes delisted from the service]] in mid-late 2015.

Draupnir.

Along with the return of the Story Mode, it also featured an option for English voice-overs as the developers puts it, "offers a full-voice dubbing in English and in Japanese to enjoy twice the game!", although it has GoneHorriblyWrong as it features terrible its English voice-acting and translations localization is something this side of ''[[VideoGame/ShikigamiNoShiro Castle Shikigami II]]'' and ''VideoGame/ChaosWars''. Adding to the abysmal localization quality, the Story Mode is also ''VideoGame/ChaosWars'', with a heavily abridged compared to it's story from its original PC counterpart, lots of [[DubNameChange name]] [[SpellMyNameWithAnS changes]] for the characters (for better or worse), and the included ''Trouble Witches AC'' is more-or-less the same game save for the most of the terrible English voice-acting. It also lacks the personal score rankings, the ability to revisit past stages, and the ability to switch Magic Cards on the fly of the original game.
