About "Wendy: Every Witch Way":
After accidentally reversing gravity, Wendy rushes to set things straight by recovering four little Moon Stones hidden in Moon Stone Castle. With her magic wand and powers of gravity-reversal, she must confront 21 different enemies through twelve standard levels, three bonus Flying Broom levels, and the final boss level. Also included are three special levels playable only on the Game Boy Advance system. The good witch explores the standard and special levels on foot and takes to the air on her broomstick for the bonus levels, all the while zapping spooky enemies with her wand and dodging objects that fall to the ground or float to the ceiling when gravity reverses. Finally, she must face the evil Warlock of Moon Stone Castle in an intense battle of magical moonstone missiles.
Whimsical "Wendy" features the following:
- Twelve standard levels: Halls, Gardens, Dungeons and Towers
- Three flying broom bonus levels
- Three Game Boy Advance levels
- 21 different enemies
- Five versions of firepower
- Unlimited full attack feature that can only be unlocked on the Game Boy Advance
- Unique gravity reversal feature
- Based on the popular Wendy character from television and comic books
