Summary: Agree with other positive reviews. Very nice games. Very good graphics (not excellent but still very good). Scenes & artwork were very nice. Although the color palette were a little towards grey & brown, I would have loved more color & vibrancy. Although the story was predictable because it was a commonly used 'witch' theme in this genre, I was still interested throughout the game.
Summary: what a pleasant surprise. :) i missed this one during its initial release as a CE, but i'm glad to have stumbled across it now. it's a beautifully crafted game, one of the most enjoyable ihogs in a long time. if you liked the azada series, the tiny bang story, nightmare adventures: the witch's prison, you'll enjoy this one too. it's one of those explore-and-try everything experiences. the adventure (lite) puzzles are imaginative and hands-on.
Summary: This was a very playable game in terms of quality. The story flows smoothly with no loopholes, rounding up with satisfying conclusions regardless of whether you play the Standard Edition or Collector's Edition. The graphics and animation were done very well, in a style that suited the story. Puzzles were acceptable - never tiresome, tedious or repetitive - but nothing out of the ordinary.
Summary: Very clever sequel and improvement over the first game I would say. This one is novel in that it's mostly adventure, a few puzzles, and HO scenes exist mostly to construct zany contraptions to accomplish tasks, almost like Rube Goldberg devices. This is a long game, about 6 hours, even if you skip the CE, but the bonus game is a lot of fun.
Summary: Yay! Another game that is clever and does not rely heavily on junkpile HOG scenes. LOVED assembling the various contraptions and the puzzles were often refreshing in their originality. The graphics were fine and the game kept my interest throughout. I often find myself bored and trodding along to the end in many games...but this one was really a lot of fun as they made you think out your next move.
Summary: This was the best game I have played in a long time! Gorgeous graphics and music, an interesting story line with unique plot twists different from other fairy tales I know, and many puzzles unlike others I have ever seen. It has many interesting scenes and rooms to explore, puzzles to solve and items to find, (over 90 percent of which fit the time period of the story).
Summary: Very standard iHOG based on yet another rescuing the fair princess from the, in this case, witch. Lots of scenes to explore involving what seemed like more than the usual number of locked doors, boxes, padlocks, etc. None of the tasks seemed particulary inventive or novel. You do have to construct various strange mechanisms after completing search scenes from time to time. Good thing puzzles are skippable as most were either way too easy or way too hard for me.
Summary: This is a review of the standard edition. This game has everything I look for in an adventure HOG. The graphics are great. The story is engaging and kept my attention. The puzzles are intelligent and varied. The adventure from location to location did not leave me lost and wondering where to go. The hint system is excellent and the puzzles can be skipped. I did not skip any because they were just my cup of tea.
Summary: DISCLAIMER: I only played the free demo. Like a lot of people, I wasn't a very impressed with the first game in the series, but something as happened with this game that is pretty rare: the developers greatly improved on the original without ruining what worked in the first game. The graphics in this game are wonderful. The game is logical but can be challenging without your getting totally frustrated.
