Witches' Legacy: The Charleston Curse
my first review
Hi. I have played lots of HO aventure/interactive games, but this is the first time I have sent in a review. I really like this game. It is not too dark and the imp is cute

Almost the "Cat's Meow"
Enjoyed this one and was sad when the trial ended. Purchasing soon.

A litle bit to short
Nice game but a litle bit too easy even for me

This first-time Hidden Object gamer is hooked!
This is the first time I've ever played a Hidden Object game from start to finish. I enjoyed the story, though found it disconcerting to see real life actor faces used in some scenes!
As a relative beginner to this genre, I found it a great starter game: I did use the hints a bit, and I occassionally skipped some of the puzzles. I found the ingame tips very helpful - I did have an issue with a crowbar, which made me restart the game (if you play this, then I can tell you there are a couple of things that need to be pried open! Don't lose that crowbar before we've actioned them all!). I had fun exploring the haunted house and its grounds. It took me around 3-4 hours to complete non-stop.

If you like games with magic and witches, I believe that this game will suit you just fine

Good... but where's the MAP????
I don't like to play the "easy" setting... I like to be able to skip mini-games that are too difficult but don't need the sparkled areas because I like some challenge. But this game has too many areas that you need to go back to and they are all too similar and don't stand out... you carry items way too long and forget where they go. A map saying which areas of interest still remain would have been perfect. Otherwise the game is very enjoyable.

This is the typical witch tale, but the game is very well done. I liked the music, the HO scenes were fun and interactive, no junk piles, and nicely spaced throughout the game. I felt like this game had balance, the perfect mix of puzzles, HO and adventure.

An Insular World with High Stakes
I've played Witches' Legacy: The Charleston Curse through twice, and loved it both times. I first played it when I was new to HOGs, so was particularly blown away by the graphics. It felt like a true 3D world, but enclosed--a sort of insular feel that contributed to the story's tension.
In brief, the plot involves saving a young child from an evil witch. It's pretty much as simple as that. There's no real mystery, or grandly unfolding plot, but I didn't miss them. I was just engaged with wandering around the large house and outside grounds solving little puzzles and doing quite a lot of HOS.
That's what I noticed most about the game when I played it the second time around. There were a lot of HOS! But rather than getting annoyed (which I usually do as a more expert player now), I enjoyed them too. The scenes are a bit junk-piley, but clear enough that you don't get too frustrated. They looked as pretty to me as the rest of the game.
I take FOREVER to finish games, so I can't really speak to length, but generally it felt a bit short. I like that, to tell the truth, because I get bored in super long games.
For those who enjoy glowing warm rooms, cold rain outside, dungeons and studies and children's rooms, you'll like this world!

Loved the story line helping the little girl. Nice atmosphere and the graphics are good. However, there are a lot of hidden objects. My only issue is that the game kept going back to the same Hidden Object places and you pick up some of the same items, even though a new useful one is gained. The mini-games are good -- not too hard.

Witches Legacy: The Charleston Curse
Frankly, I'm about ready to shelve this game! It started off well (almost seems the game creators do this to pass the one hour trial) then it melts down into almost constant hidden object scenes played on the same few scenes. This is a cop out in my book...you lose all track of the story line...its just plain dumb. If I wanted a game that was nothing BUT hidden object scenes there are better ones than this! Game creators: STOP doing this...its maddening!
