Strategy

Wicked Sisters provide a highly efficient tower for dealing damage to tough enemies, whether operating in poison mode or in magic/stun mode. The tower is at its most powerful in levels with a mixture of heavily armored and heavily magic-resistant enemies, because poison-damage ignores both forms of resistance. The player has the option of switching to magic/stun mode for waves without magic-resistant enemies, or of leaving the tower in poison-mode for the entire level.

An additional strength is the movable rally point, which means that Wicked Sisters can continue to deal damage while the tower is disabled, and that they can make good use of unfavorably located strategic points. With Nimbus 4000, a well placed tower can have sufficient range to be able to switch paths, or to attack enemies trapped in a choke point that is some distance from the Wicked Sisters' strategic point.

Despite the chance of stunning targets, Wicked Sisters are very poor at crowd control due to the slow attack-rate, and likelihood of overkill (dealing more damage than is needed to kill an enemy). This is particularly true in poison-mode, where weak enemies are likely to be killed by other towers before the poison has finished acting, making the poison redundant. For this reason, poison-mode should ideally be used at the front, where it will weaken enemies for other towers rather than deal the killing blow.

Note that poison-damage does not stack, so if two Wicked Sisters are placed where they are both likely to attack the same enemy within 2.4 seconds, no more than one of these towers should be in poison-mode.

Trivia

  • The tower is based on the Black Hag enemy from Kingdom Rush.
  • The name Wicked Sisters may be related to two of different terms.
    • The Wicked Witch of the West and the Wicked Witch of the East in The Wizard of Oz are both sisters.
    • The three witches in William Shakespeare's Macbeth are referred to as Weird Sisters. This name is used in a number of other magic themed series, such as Discworld, Harry Potter and Sabrina to name but a few.
  • Hanging from the Wicked Sisters' house are bundles of wood similar to those found in the woods in the film The Blair Witch Project
  • "Swish and flick!"
  • "We'll get you my pretty! Ha ha ha!"
    • A line spoken by the Wicked Witch of the West in the film The Wizard of Oz. The original line is "I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!". As there are two witches in the tower the conjunction I'll is pluralized.
  • "Twist the bones and bend the back!"
    • The first line of thespell used to turn someone into a cat, used by the witches in the film Hocus Pocus
  • "So you wanna play with magic?"
  • "It's not easy being green."
  • "Sure you can manage that broom?"
    • A line from the book Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when Harry is given a new broom. This line is not featured in the film due to the scenes occurring at different points.
    • NImbus 4000 is based on a magic broomstick brand in the same series, in which the highest model for the Nimbus line is merely 2001.
