Behind the Reflection 2: Witch's Revenge
Good game for a break
Although there is a witch, it's not a creepy game. The graphics are clear. You have to find objects in HOS but also more generally in the scene. You have to assemble various objects to move through a portal. There are some puzzles, quite easy. The hint system is good. Clicking everywhere freezes the cursor. There is a good journal. You don't have to walk a lot.
It took me about 2 hours to finish. I recommend also the first "Behind the Reflection". Good for beginners or for a break.

Behind The Reflection 2: Witch's Revenge
Very nice game of HOs; the sound was very good; objects were very clear and easy to find. Just as I was about to buy this game; the entire game froze on me right after I put the Puppet's top body part together; had about 33 minutes left, but the entire game froze up.;
Fix this, and I will update rating to 5-stars.

NICE MIX OF PUZZLES
I enjoyed this game, and bought it after the demo (which I only do rarely) I like the mix of puzzles, which I found interesting and fun.Not your usual lot.

GOOD COMBINATION HOG
Graphics are good. Sometimes you have to find an object that goes into a circle in another area or in a HOS. The combination of HOS-Circles is good. About halfway through the game, haven't found it impossible to find out where to go next (though might have to think a bit, which is good). Don't know what arrows and too many highlighted areas people giving the game low marks are talking about. I find only active areas are highlighted and I just don't see any unnecessary arrows. Puzzles are fairly easy and can be skipped.

I AGREE Game is good
Loved playing it, fun, not to hard puzzles. Didn't have problem with chess, but needed to see where to put figures.
Some of the items are very small, hints come back quickly.
Haven't bought but might.

An Almost Identical Sequel
Story: Sending her to jail wasn?t enough to get rid of the witch who has now sworn revenge, and again your son is stolen by her. She is determined to have his soul, and before you can rescue him she escapes with him through alternate realities again. You?ll meet other victims of the witch this time, who will help, but it is still a race against time to get to your boy.
Release Date: Mar 2012
This is so like its predecessor, it?s almost like an additional few chapters to the original story. Once again we are faced with magical mirrors and alternate realities. The graphics are the same style, although there is some technical improvement, and the music is the same mind-shatteringly irritating few bars from the first game.
The game play has not changed either. There are things to find to complete tasks, which can be found either openly or hidden in the location, or occasionally in another close by. There are HOs and puzzles to complete others.
All of it is as easy as you could possibly want, and will bore a more experienced player who likes a bit of challenge. But for quiet afternoons, and a cuppa, I think it?s a great fit.
I prefer this game to the earlier one because it has interesting characters and parallel worlds, one of which I found quite intriguing...

The best way I can describe this game: Not for hard-core gamers like myself. Story line is too familiar, Mom looks for kid's soul that has been stolen by psycho witch. Hmmm, sounds familiar. Lets start with the cons: Although graphics are crisp and bright, animation is rough around the ages and outdate. Game looks old. Music is repetative and sound effects got on my nerve after a while; too much whispering in the back-ground. No voice-over, no map and sadly, one play mode which I think is the downfall of the entire game. I now know what it means to have too many sparkles and too many arrows pointing the way. It feels like I am dragged from one place to another without having any options to explore on my own. Seriously, a game for beginners. Game mechanics involve pop-ups to find missing items along with HOS. As for the Pros of the game: Cute mini-games I havent seen for a while and unfortunately that is it. While this game had great potential of being a good game, it lacks any kind of challenge making it fall flat. Too simple and too dull for my taste, sorry will pass on this. Cheers

This game started off with a lot of promise apart from the music / background sounds which became irrating. That wasn't a problem as I would just simply turn the sound off.
Graphics were brilliant.
Clear hidden object scenes which were not cluttered, with some items hard to find which is a challenge I like.
The other aspect is finding a collection of items to obtain an inventory item you need. This again is something I like.
Some unique puzzles and some variation on the common ones.
This was a definite buy for me until...
What totally put me off was what happened when she left the house. Whilst I am not an expert player and cannot play games in hardcore mode, I was overwhelmed by the sudden appearance of lots of sparkles and arrows all over the screen. Whether this had happened in the house and I hadn't realised I am not sure but it certainly hit me in the face later and I could no longer carry one.
No buy for me but I will recommend the game because what bothers me might not bother you.

Old story with new puzzles
Yet another story of saving your son from a wicked witch....
Graphics were nice, but nothing brilliant - more of a 'sketched' appearance.
Each scene contained hidden items to find, with some being interactive with other scenes, and a few hidden object games as well.
At the end of each scene was a puzzle game - great variety here, although some I had to skip as I couldn't work out what to do. Instructions could do with improvement. The ones that I was able to varied from easy to harder. The puzzles were definitely what made the game.
The hint button wasn't a lot of help, and instructions were somewhat vague at times. Sparkles annoy me in games, but with this one there was just so many of them everywhere it almost wasn't an issue.
The storyline was so unoriginal and boring i totally lost interest in it. The game didn't run very smoothly, but was an okay length.
Enjoyable to play, although after a while it became somewhat repetitive. The puzzles are what kept it alive for me.
