Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison
Utterly Enjoyable, But Far Too Short
'Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison' is one of the best BFG games as far as gameplay goes, which is a shame because the full version is far too short. Though this game is challenging, with a decent plot and a rather chilling conclusion, it felt to me as if it is half the length of the other games that I've played in the genre.
This truly may have been in contest as one of my favourite games on the site - the puzzles are decently challenging, the problems/solutions are very original, and I love the main character's snarky remarks when you examine objects on the screen - had it been a bit beefier. As it is, I want very much to like it, but was quite disappointed. Mixed Feelings.

not as good as the others
No sound, no voice, lots of reading. I played for 10 min and was done. Did not see any HOS and just got bored real fast so not for me.

Nothing really special about this game. Wasn't horrible but not fantastic, but on plus really short.

Short, ok non HO Game
The game was very short, as usual. It's not worth $9.99 in my opinion. The graphics were ok but a bit outdated. The atmosphere was ok, the story was ok.
The puzzles were a bit daunting, generally. About half of the puzzles had no clues to them without hitting the hint button. The other half did. It's an ok game if you want something short. It also has no hidden object scenes. I wasn't greatly impressed. It starts off pretty interesting then gets kinda blah at the end.

It was ok
I thought the game was just ok. I thought from the reviews it was going to be better than it really was. The game started out like it was going to be good but about half way through i really just wanted to be done. One of the reasons I was bothered with this game was when you got to puzzles they gave you no clue on how to solve yes u can figure most out but there were some that I had no clue so I had to keep hitting the hint button just to figure out what to do. Even though you could look back at photos to help solve certain ones they still didnt make sense. Just my opinion

Should have waited for the $2.99 daily deal.
It wasn't a bad game, it just wasn't all that. Long yes, about 6 hours at a leisurely pace. Story line was ok, music unobtrusive, hint buttons fast enough...but just got to the end and kind of went, "oh, OK." Purely adventure, no HOGs but lots and lots of other games...with very little real instructions. Had to skip a few cuz they just didn't make sense. I certainly didn't dislike it but I won't bother playing it again. I wouldn't recommend it but I certainly won't tell you to avoid it at all costs...it was just OK.

Slow and boring
I usually play my games on expert. But I didn't get a chance to do that here. There is one level and lack of story and flow. There is no movement or wandering. If you like a puzzle only game - this is for you. For me, I made it to the 3 part of the puzzle and deleted it. You can't go from one area to another and explore. I saw that it got rave reviews - maybe I'm missing something.

For those of you who don't like too many HOS, this game may be for you. It is ALL mini-puzzles and you rarely get any direction on how or what. Most of them are fairly simply to figure out on your own with some tinkering, but I prefer when the game comes right out and tells me what the goal is. Also, I like HOS. I like the perfect blend of HOS with adventure, so I missed the HOS.
However, what truly drags this game down is the ABYSMAL storyline and the ridiculous and abrupt ending. For something so atmospheric and cool, it's like the designers weren't sure how to end it, so they just wrapped it up without any rhyme or reason.
Still, I'd recommend the game. I would wait and get it at a very reduced rate, but it's still fun enough.
