Voodoo Whisperer: Curse of a Legend
Ending ruins the game
This game had great potential. Lovely graphics, interesting challenges, clever puzzles. It felt as though they stopped half-way through, though, as the game ends on a "cliff hanger" and there's no resolution. It was maddening: we did our part of the job; the developer should do his or hers. I'd say keep your money or, at least, don't go into it looking for the story to end.

Voodoo Whisperer is "Great Fun"
I'm just in the middle of this game and thought I'd stop and leave a note to say this is a fun game. I love the fact that it lets you know when you've finished an area, that sure saves a lot of running around! HO's are fun and even a bit challenging, puzzles are not bad. Did have one I had to get help with. Background fx sounds of thunder storms is a nice effect as well as the nice graphics.

This game is truly awesome
All through the game, I felt so relaxed and happy to spend my time doing this, and even if I am not a real lover of HOS, the ones in this game couldn't take my pleasure away... so, I give it a full 5 stars.
The graphics are neat, sharp, full of colour, light and shadows... the music and the sounds are really good.
The storyline, with its clearcut division in different chapters kept me wanting to go on to the next step.
No voice overs, which is kind of a pity.
There is a map, but it just serves to show you in which part of the game you are, because the game is very linear: once you have finished a chapter, you can't go back to it.
Hints are useful in that they point you in the right direction when you are at a loss where to go next.
You have to pick up quite a number of objects that you need to use... it's all about interactive gameplay.
Some reviewers say that they needed a walkthrough to get unstuck... this was not my case. I found the game to be very straightforward... sometimes, you just need to find the right object to get on with it, and the written comments provide you with the necessary information for that.
The length of the game is also very good. You get chapter after chapter served and every chapter takes you quite some time to complete.
This is definitely one of the better games I have played off late. Wish there more like this one.

Nice little game
Let me stress, little. The graphics are very sharp in this game but very small. There is a lot crammed into one scene. It's rather monochromatic with just hints of color. Not made for widescreen, you just get to play on a square in the middle of the screen. This makes it difficult for players with visual issues. Even the print is small and doesn't stay on the screen anywhere near long enough to read it when it first appears.
The story is that there is a curse on the town where you were born. Your Grandma is dead so now it is up to you to use your virgin powers to remove the curse. Your dead Grandma will help you.
You get spells to use as you play along. There are two modes of play, a mortar and pestle that you can use to create spells, and a hint button that works outside of the HO scenes. There are puzzles to play which are not ionteractive and items to pick up for your inventory. You pick up a lot that you won't use right away.
The music is extremely dramatic but it fits the mood. The mood and artwork are grey. i liked this game even though it was a strain to see. I wish the games would have the option to choose widescreen.
This one's a keeper.
