Voodoo Whisperer: Curse of a Legend
Demo is the best part
I played the demo got hooked and I must say the first chapter was one of the best Adventure-HO Games I played, long, lots of beautiful locations, interesting plot, and spells and alchemy provided nice addition to the game-play. And That's about it.
The rest of the game is short, repeats the same pattern over and over, and it is just bland... I mean it is decent, but because the first chapter is so great it comes pale in comparison.
Play the DEMO I recommend.
But I would not bother playing full version. It is not worth it.

I'm Already Hooked
I've barely begun, just into the second chapter and already it's clear this is a keeper. Not as flashy (ie. good but not spectacular artwork) as the rest of my favourites, this game has a lot of original features as well as an interesting story.
There are a few special attractions :
A grimoire plus mortal & pestle that help keeping track of your ingredients for spells, as well as just being cool.
A magnifying glass in the HO scenes is a wonderful innovation.
The HO scenes are particularly good - relevant objects, crisp and clean, no distortions, The puzzles are innovative twist on common ones.
Two levels available. I chose "regular'. The level of difficulty in all three aspects - HO, puzzle, quest - are all roughly the same and just about right for a goodish player. Put the thinking cap on, but no need to stock up on valium.
STORY: Just finished and have to re-evaluate this review. Everything is still true, but they blew it by ending with a "to be continued", and we very much are a long way from the finish of the story.
If a game can stand alone, a "to be continued" doesn't have to be bad. Not the case here.
Two star demerit, developers!

Voodoo Hidden Object Fun
Good game for intermediate Hidden object players. Fun to collect items for the potions. Good artwork with interesting scenes. I liked this game and look forward to the sequel.

PROS: For me this was a cool game. I liked that the puzzles weren't obscure. In a lot of games I just skip over them. I liked the part with the stained windows upstairs and the doll room connection. That was unusual and interesting. I liked the spell aspect and the way it was set up.I liked the game and loved that they let you know when you were finished with a scene. Sometimes in other games you get stuck and end up trekking around all over to see if there's a HO scene you missed. I liked the characters they seemed more real than in a lot of games and I wanted the main character to succeed. Usually I'm pretty indifferent to the outcome but this game held my interest all the way through.I liked that each scene was finished before you moved on to another location.
Cons: I found the hidden object scenes too dark/monotone. Everything was gray which annoyed me as I play exclusively HO games and have seen much better scene setups than this one. Still they weren't excessive and I liked that and the objects were useful in furthering the game.
I hated the end. I have only played two games like this, and they bother me. Each game should be complete in itself and if necessary the story can continue in the next one so they are related but not dependent on each other.
It was a fun and engaging game though, one of the best I've played so far.

Great game until....
Until you think you're almost done with the game and at the end and it tells you to be continued.

Voodoo Whisperer: Curse of a Legend
I really liked the crisp graphics - I can think of some other games that could benefit from similar such. The story is very atmospheric and I hope the sequel comes out soon since the game ends with a cliffhanger.
My big quibble is - as with many hidden object games - the historical anachronisms, not necessary to the storyline. This story takes place in the early 19th century, but the game includes gramophones! Edison did not invent the phonograph until 1899.

ESPECIALLY loved the ending! It's a cliff-hanger to be sure, but leaves me anxious for the sequel.... Can't wait!
The only thing I didn't like about the game is that the puzzles were far too easy.... but the HO's get more challenging as you go along. Seems they should've been equally challenging.
I love the "spells" you learn and use throughout the game and the various dolls and concoctions you need to assemble. There is no annoying diary, but a clear task list and a very helpful hint system.
I enjoyed this game a lot and highly recommend it. It is a nice length too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! ')

I really liked this game. It wasn't too difficult nor was it easy. The best thing about this game is the chapters. You don't have to wander through dozens of scenes to figure out where and what you need to do.There is also the "Area Clear" to let you know that you are finished with a particular part of the game.
