"Defense Witches" is a free I Phone Strategy Game created by NEWGATE. It centers on multiple witches of varying personalities and powers, dedicated to saving a crystal tower from the likes of evil. The game play is fairly simple. You are given witches as the story progresses, staring with "Speed Star" Daisy, "Long Rage" Becky, and "Any Direction" Chloe.

Through careful placement on any available squares, the witches will automatically attack the monsters coming in their direction. With enough MP built up from killing the monsters, you can upgrade your witches and better defend the tower before it falls from 20 HP to 0. As you go along, more witches are introduced, most through humorous manga strips that often give hints and tell the rest of the story.


This game provides examples of:

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: Flare is the mother of Tiana and has the same youthful, cutsey apperance as the other witches, only with a more womanly figure.
  • Action Girl
  • Action Mom: Flare
  • An Ice Person: Nicola and her older sister Iris.
  • Archer Archetype: Bianca uses fire arrows.
  • Big Bad: Cornet who use to be an evil queen until losing her power and being turned into a child. She mostly seems like a bratty kid but takes down 5 HP if she gets near the crystal.
  • Blow You Away: Chiara and Lyra who performs "anti-air" attacks on any enemies that take the skies.
  • Boobs of Steel: Flare is about the strongest witch and has the rack to prove it.
  • Braids of Action: Lilian
  • Cool Big Sis: Daisy's sister Cecilia, Becky's sister Bianca, Chloe's sister Lilian, and Nicola's sister Iris.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Cornet is a demon but she looks like a small little girl with a kitten on her head. She probably looked more menacing before losing her powers.
