Got Tired of Playing
This game has such potential to be a 5 star game. I loved many things about the game but the one thing that made me almost trash it was not having a map. This type game not only needs a map, but it needs an interactive map. There also is no journal so you are kind of in the dark. Thank goodness the hint button works great.
Glad I didn't get the full game.

I have to say again: Not the worst...nor the best.
I played the CE and now SE, hoping it had improved (loading time, music ...). But remains unchanged. The only difference is that the SE has no SG, so I repeat the same review.
Angelica has its beauty and youth stolen by a witch, who was the director of the school of her grandmother.
-Nice graphics, colorful and crisp.
-Several locations with a lot to do and to find.
-Three levels of challenge.
-To Collect (12 "snake key" during the game).
-I liked the storyline, although it is usual tries to bring something new.
-It takes too long loading, and cutscene in the beginning, the image appears and takes too long to display the writing (no VO).
-Music does not match game's atmosphere.
-Not challenging: mini games easy and very well known; HOS easy and... the interactive parts shine! Hint and skip button fill fast (even in advanced mode).
-No map, no journal.
-Lot of back and forth.
Close to the elaborate games that we currently have, this is not very appealing, but I recommend the free trial!

not great but good
The music will drive you mad. No voice over so lots of reading. Hint button works if needed. HOS are not hard or the puzzles.

I wish I could have liked it.
I really wish I could have liked this game. However, you randomly have to search for HOG to get pieces you need to unlocks certain parts of the games. In other words -- without the hints, you'd have no idea that you have to go back into (let's say) the kitchen or the music room to play another HOG.
I absolutely loved the story line. I thought it was great. Nothing like the usual "kidnap, friend lost, etc.". I just wish they took more time to develop a map (maybe to indicate when you're done with an area and to go to an area directly).
The mini-games were extremely easy -- not much of a challenge. Sometimes, that's fun though. They were rather unique.
Like I said in my title, I wish I could have liked (loved) it. It had so much potential. Easy games (I like more difficult), but great plot line, nice graphics, no annoying voice-overs - but extremely difficult (at times) to determine "what next?".
That being said, I grudgingly recommend it, with the caveat that you use the hints when you're pulling your hair out.

Slightly Above Average
This game is good for a HOG. No real complaints from a technical standpoint. Just sooooo tired of the witch storyline in soooo many games!!!

This game was ok, i mean it really needs a map, you forget where u have to go, and when you have to go to another destination, it takes you so long to get there. Also the hint takes you to places you don't even need to go. Its really dull, not a challenge, games are easy, and your pretty much doing the same stuff over and over again. Would i recommend this.. maybe if its ur free game, but i wouldnt recommend this if your paying for it. Good luck though.

This was a decent game, not too scary. It desperately needed a map and there was a lot of back and forth but the puzzles were different and fun and the HO scenes weren't bad. The story is your typical defeat the witch saga, it hinted at a sequel, I'd give that a try if it ever came out.

Fun but can be improved
I really liked this game, but I wish there was a map in it. You have to go forward and then go back several times, and without a map, it can be a bit irritating.
But the story and the challenges were great!

I have a pet peeve with HOGs that insist on hiding random things over ten scenes and you have to click through each of them to go back and forth. I spent at least half of the game not playing, not searching, but clicking from scene to scene just to get one thing and then going back. By the end of the game I was using the hint button just to remember which room I had to go to. Also, the ending sort of fizzles. Just, "Hey, the Witch is dead (OR IS SHE?!?!?) and then back to the title screen you go. The art is ok, but the audio! In several rooms the music stops so that all you can hear is what I can only describe as a panting, elderly chimp. Hideous.
