The Game It was an interesting game, with full of joy,fun and excitement!!! April 23, 2014
Something Different I looked up Ghost Ship Studios after playing this game as the credits showed a very small production company with one PC programmer, one Mac programmer and a very small handful of artists. I think this game makes a fine example of what can be done in a small company. The disadvantage of course is that it has taken a bit of time for their next game to arrive. Although this was posted as a HOG I found it to be much more puzzle and story focussed. Some of the puzzles were fairly simple while others were a challenge but there was a bit of something for everyone. One thing I appreciated about the puzzles was that they weren't the usual ones you see in most of the adventure games. There were some word puzzles, and the "organizing" puzzles were a bit different than the usual (turn the circles until the gems are in the right place and in this case also the Roman numerals adding an extra bit of challenge). It was also possible to skip the puzzles. Graphics: Not bad. Backgrounds were good, but the characters could have used a bit more work. Sound: To be honest, I usually turn most of the sound off, so can't say much about it. The characters did speak, but also have text boxes during the cut scenes for those who don't use sound. Hints: The few times I used the hints, I found that some of them were graduated -- that is the first hint was a puzzle in itself, followed by a hint that was a bit easier to understand. At the same time, some of the hints left me clueless while others gave too much away. So, in other words, a mixed bag. I found I needed to use a walkthrough in some places. Story: I liked the story, a little odd and quirky. It definitely had the mystery element but the ending was unexpected and was definitely a teaser for what's to come in the next game of the series. Technical: My only glitch was sometimes the inventory didn't come up when I needed to get to an item. I'd have a puzzle up on the screen, but couldn't pull up the inventory. I'd close the puzzle get the object out of inventory but then couldn't reopen the puzzle. It would eventually work but it seemed to require positioning the mouse at some arbitrarily chosen location. Summation: An entertaining game with enough content to keep going for awhile. If you like the puzzle adventure mystery with some creepy monsters and skeletons, this game is definitely for you.

An Old Style Adventure Game Witches Prison is a step back into classic adventure gaming. There are a number of puzzles and 'find and use' challenges but no HOS screens #which for me, is a plus!#. Puzzles are varied with clues that make sense. Cut scenes are still drawings with written dialog, which gives the game a low tech feel. The story made sense until the very end and I am still not sure what was resolved in the final scene #other than you survive!#. The game could have been improved if instructions were provided for the puzzles. A number of times, I did not know how to interact with the puzzle interface and the hint button provides spoilers, not operating directions! This is the first Big Fish game that did not run seamlessly for me. I have an older PC with Vista and the game would slow terribly when puzzle windows were open. Seemed like a memory issue because it resolved by closing the detail window and reopening it. Having said all this, I would still highly recommend this for an adventure gamer looking for a reasonable challenge. July 29, 2013
Creative storyline, challenging puzzles. The storyline was creative. You play someone that inherits an asylum and you are trying to figure out your family?s history. You discover one of your ancestors entombed a witch. The ending was a little bit of a surprise twist. I played casual mode and it is indeed challenging. Many of the puzzles are tough to solve and require good thinking and patience. Figuring out what to do next was not difficult though. There are no hidden object scenes only interactive scenes. Hint recharges very slowly. Overall, I think it was good and would recommend it. August 18, 2012
Good spooky adventure game... For me, there's not a worse nightmare than to be caught in an insane asylum and accused of being insane. It definitely has the creepy feel and great story and puzzles throughout. I tolerate hidden object games, but when there are adventure games that don't have them throughout, I am in HEAVEN. I just don't have the patience and it's just not that fun for me, but I will play especially if it's a good game with graphics and storyline. So when I can find a really good game without HO scenes, I enjoy them even more. I personally liked the easy navagational controls. It's easy to understand (eye-see, foot prints-walk, and hand to grab or take things). Overall, a good game play and worth the buy. January 15, 2012
Great Puzzles, Funny too! When the game had a saw blade that you had to bring an item to to cut, I knew I didn't have what I needed. I decided to try my entire inventory anyway. For each of the items, I got a different variation of the standard reply "you don't need to cut this" (much more interesting that way). But when I tried to cut the worm I had in my pocket, it called me a "Sicko" and I was hooked! The puzzles were great, with enough difficulty for a seasoned gamer, but not impossible to solve, and the variety of types of puzzles was very good as well . The story was interesting. My only disappointment was the ending... it was a bit ambiguous. I'm assuming a sequel is planned. I prefer complete endings and sequels being a new story for the original characters than a continuance of the original story. Definitely worth playing! November 30, 2012
enjoyable but with some tech. faults I have played a few of these sort of games and also quite a few Nancy Drew series, not expert though but this game was great for me because for once I didn't have to be stuck at a stage and cannot move on until I have solved a puzzle ! That drove me nuts. In this game it gives a choice of skipping and when they give a hint, they do give a hint and not just a line that leaves you pulling your hair out. You have to think but for non experts, as long as you have some common sense, you will enjoy the satisfaction of being able to move on the game without feeling like you are a complete idiot. I agree with some here that it had it's frustrating moments and quite often when solving puzzles or looking at things that the control of the mouse lost control. On the whole, good game and addictive. March 23, 2012
Scary, Mystic, Ghastly & Demonic! Awsome game. Great Quality. Weird storyline at the start, but you begin to uncover it more and more. A bit too challenging at some places. Nice sound. March 14, 2012
Lots of puzzles! And hard ones, too. Skipped most of them, as there were no instructions on most of them. No HOS in this game. Be sure to look carefully all around the areas as the items you need are in very obscure places. Cursor kind of slow and clunky. Story good, humorous. No VOS. A lot of reading. My time: casual 4.5 hours. April 27, 2012
Fun Hidden Object Game I clicked on everything, some very funny responses. December 17, 2011
