Witches' Legacy: The Charleston Curse
Feels Like Work
Not as much fun as I wanted it to be. Lots of running around with just one HOS after another. By the time I get an item I need, I have forgotten where it is supposed to go. For example, if I need to cut something open, the scissors might not be picked up until many HOS later and clear across to the other side of the house.
The HOS are absolute messes -- probably the worst I've ever encountered in any game I've played -- smudgy, shadowy hiding places for teeny-tiny little objects requiring you to click on exactly the right pixel.
This is a very long game. I've been playing for four hours, and I'm not anywhere close to the end, I've now given up trying to figure out where I need to be and am simply using hints to point the way. At this point, it feels more like work than fun, just slogging away to get to the end.

I have played 'Witches Legacy - The Ties That Bind CE' and 'Witches Legacy - Lair of the Witch Queen CE' and loved them both so I decided I wanted to see the start of the story and bought the first one, 'Witches' Legacy: The Charleston Curse CE'. Can someone tell my why this deserves to be a CE. Where is the badly needed map? I'm exhausted running from one end to the other and have resorted to using the hint to tell me where to go next. Where are the collectibles? Where are the achievements? I am sooooo bored with this game. By the time I have finally picked up something to solve a puzzle I have forgotten where the heck to use it! The later editions are soooo much better and honestly, if I had started with this one I would not have bought the others. This should go out as a $1.99 game. Thank goodness I bought it on a two for one special. Very disappointed.

Hidden Object Game with minipuzzles
I'm over 65 and my memory is not so good. Making me go from one end of the house/area to the farthest area was cruel and unnecessary - for ONE piece of a puzzle. Finish with one area and move on to the next. I'm just glad the arrow Hints didn't cost anything or I would not have finished this game. Very disappointed.

I think the CE was the only way to go with this game
The ending lacked anything... the music was annoying, like some kind of depressing organ, that beeped out when you got an object from the HOG's which I thought were junk piles. I liked the way the lighting was handled and the doorknob, and the imp, but what happened to him? What was behind the brick wall at the entrance? The ending left you disappointed and wandering. I couldn't wait to be done with it. And put your sneaker's on, as they say, you are all over the place with things in your inventory that you have no idea where they belong. It lacked fluidity...& was repetitive and boring. The HOG's were not crisp either. I rate everything against Return to Ravenhurst... come on! This wasn't anything like that game in it's worst scene! (I don't think it had any bad scenes). I didn't think it was imaginative except for the door knob. The puzzles were so easy a child could do them. The story line was over played. The best part of the game was the demo, the pitch, then it was down hill... what ever happened to the the ritual in chalk that was referred to more than once? Dunno. Maybe it was a pretty package as a CE but wasn't worth a penny as an SE.

Sorry I wasted my money on this one. I don't know how it got 5 stars. Just did not enjoy at all.
