Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison
My First 'Big Fish' Game Purchased
I initially played the 1-hour trial of this game and immediately purchased the full version once my time was up because I was enthralled with the settings and the promise of the storyline. I wish I had known how little game time was left after the point I had reached (thankfully it was purchased at the new user price).
The Witch's Prison definitely has a creepy, dark theme which was what drew me to it. The graphics aren't the best as far as characters go, but the locations are pretty well done. The witch herself was pretty terrifying but her appearance is very brief in the game. Tasks are fairly simple to figure out and pair well with the story (no unnecessary goose chases).
I can't say I recommend this game as a stand-alone but it may be worth it if you're interested in playing the sequel, 'The Turning Thorn' (but not necessary).

I had originally installed this on my old computer and couldn't deal with how slow the game was running. When I got my brand spanking new, totally up-to-date computer, I figured I'd give this game another go. Still slow. I found on the forums that this was pretty typical of this game. I played it all the way through, but found myself getting very impatient. It's a shame, because otherwise it was a fun game. Creepy at times, too. If there is a sequel then hopefully they'll fix this deal-breaking bug.

starts out promising completely falls apart in the end
This game actually started out quite well (that's why still two instead of 1 star for fun factor) until the story is taking a turn such that the story itself falls completely apart and makes the entire experience a big disappointment. A shame - could have been a very nice game.
Visuals/sound of the levels and scenes are done well enough that the trial lured me in.
The game is not very difficult - but it did intrigue me nonetheless from the aspect of challenge when I played the trial.
Bottom line don't waste your money if you don't want to be disappointed from a storyline that doesn't fulfill what it starts out promising.

My challenge is to stay with the game!
Can't stretch my review enough to incorporate my disdain for the game. From the mispelled text to the final scene, I found little that could be called challenging, insightful, or intriguing.

Hidden Object Game
The storytelling was very immature. It read like a first or second grader and practically every item in every scene had a notation to read, which didn't seem to fit in the overall game.
The game did not grab me from the very beginning, as most of the ones I've played have so far. I was extremely disappointed in this one.

did not enjoy
Puzzles had no clues at all as to what
to do. you were on your own to try
and figure out what to do with them.
Even the hints gave you nothing. Had
to skip a lot of them. No music or sound
hardly at all.

sometimes I wonder whether the reviews on here are genuine and not just written to get more game sales. This game started well in the cottage and cemetery but once at the asylum gates laboratory and on, I just found it more and more irritating. The story line is good and some scary scenes and ideas but so many inane puzzles slowed the story and just became tedious, I just didnt feel I was getting anywhere just repeating clicking my mouse and watching coins or eyeballs whatever spin. Watched walkthrough on you tube and also noted no dramatic ending so what is the point of this game? I didnt feel motivated to finish it so feel I completely wasted my money.

Not at all good
omg!!! This game was boring. I mean I didn't understand much about it, the hint button was no use at all. I couldn't figure out how to do anything. I'm so glad I only played the hour long version cause it really isn't worth the money to play.

Horrible - Not What I Expected!
This game is absolutely NOT worth the money! So many problems; first of all, the game is TOO short - and for $9.99, I was expecting something way longer (Like Mystery Case Files... they are my FAVORITE.) Secondly, the graphics look like they were from the 90's - when in actuality, they are from like 2010! Overall very lame game. HOWEVER, the only thing I loved, is the concept itself. As for the game, well, take my advice...DO NOT BUY IT.!

I don't like puzzles that don't have rhyme or reason to them, this games puzzles were either too easy or lacking common logic . Story line was weak..started out good then was void middle to end!!
