After playing the sequel, as I don't own this game, I had to go back and replay it. There were no achievements, no morphing that I could see, you meet the imp for a few minutes then he locks himself up again. The hint button works outside the hos which were very dark and very hard to see. The storyline is very good and the music fit the scenes but was kinda of skippish. Visually it was beautiful, but again very darkish and grainy. The hos were junky and the items were on the small side and at times very hard to find. It was a good game and I enjoyed it.

too many HOS
This wasn't a bad game but a few things disappointed me. The graphics were fine and I really liked the story line. Puzzles were OK, average difficulty. However, there were entirely too many HOS. The only reason I finished was because they were easy enough to get through quickly. There wasn't a map and there was some wandering. The Hint button helped with navigation. My biggest regret was buying the CE. I didn't feel the extras were worth the additional money. I look for collectibles and achievements and it did not have either. It did have a bonus chapter. Don't get me wrong I think it deserves attention (especially if you're a fan of HOS). I enjoyed it overall. Despite my peeves it still got 4 stars.

Like it but..
I played all the game, was good but it lack a map because you will have to go back and forth to the room which was frustrating. the OST was great especially the opening song. The graphics were amazing but I wished they drew the girl and the witch instead of using actors.The voices were realistic though which is good.

GOOD MEMORY EXERCISE
A REALLY GOOD GAME. WE GO BACK TO THE SAME HOS JUST A FEW TIMES, BUT THERE ARE SOOOO MANY HOS THAT AT LEAST ME, I CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE THINGS WERE. I EVEN GOT A WEE BIT LOST, BUT THE SG IS WELL WRITTEN THAT WE REALLY DON'T NEED A MAP TO MOVE THROUGH. I DID FEEL THE BONUS GAME WITH THE CE IS WAY TOO SHORT. I WOULD'VE LIKED TO UNITE LYNN WITH HER PET. LOOKING FORWARD TO A SERIES ALONG THIS LINE.

Good fun game!
I really liked this game - it was fairly challenging (in Expert mode), had a good storyline, graphics and puzzles.
The Hidden Object scenes were pretty easy, as were the puzzles - but they were different and interesting.
The storyline and graphics kept me happy, with lots to look at and many rooms, places to go. The little Imp made me smile and the voices were realistic and entertaining.
I didn't look at the Strategy Guide once - so I wished that it came in a non-Collector's Edition, as I find that the Guide is usually the only benefit of a Collector's Edition, personally.
Overall, I highly recommend this game as fun, interesting and challenging.

Fun and Spooky!
I only played the trial but I had fun doing it. This game had the best cursor I've seen in a HOG. And I've never encountered a door knob with a cold before! Very clever.

A standard, not very challenging "adventure"
This story, from the developers of the Fear for Sale series, involving a nasty witch [witches are always nasty by definition] is a conventional blend of HOG and simple Adventure.
The games starts off nicely but since the demo doesn't take you farther than the beginning of Chapter 2 [pages 9 to 11], it is [once again] difficult to determine whether the rest gets better or not.
The 1 hour I spent in company of the heroine, the little girl and the witch was nevertheless quite pleasant, easy going and pretty straighforward.
HOGs are a bit crowded as usual but quite manageable and the Hint System helpful although it doesn't recharge fast. It also points at what you need to see or do.
And of course guess what one of the hidden objects is ?... a skull [they're everywhere, LOL !]. Nothing scary however, the game being gentle and the developers conscious not to go to extremes in the field of gloom.
Among the tasks I noted with amusement one very funny invention; you have to do something very special to a door handle. I will not say what, obviously. The rest is similar to the tasks you're used to perform in other games.
The puzzles I saw were interesting though not extraordinary and perfectly solvable without any help. They can be skipped and reset.
Backtracking throughout the demo is reduced to a minimum as the game is rather linear. This may change as of Chapter 2... maybe. As a result, the number of locations to explore seems to be low, but that also may change later on in the game.
I was surprised by the relative poverty of the other features. I expected stunning visuals; they are nice, well drawn and lively colored, but nothing more than that.
Same remark regarding the intro, custcenes and animations; not bad, movie like, but not astounding.
The voice-overs are so-so as they don't sound very natural, except the witch's voice acting which is a little better. They were a lot more convincing in Sunnyvale.
The worst is the music: awful; one theme played on the organ sounds like church music during a funeral, another is simply ridiculous, without any melody. I turned it off.
Let's add to that: 2 Modes, a wide screen option, and a custom cursor.
I am not sure the CE is worth the extra expense; I am waiting for the SE. But one thing is certain: the game would have gained in quality had the artwork been polished and the soundtrack redone from scratch.
Can be recommended in spite of the imperfections.
