Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison
I liked the creepy atmosphere in this game. It is really dark, and lots of spooky places to visit (abandoned buildings, dark churches, graveyard) that really fit the story. I had trouble passing through one scene when my game closes down by itself, but luckily it goes on. One thing that should be better is the sound, because it is almost completely like playing on a silent movie, no sound whatsoever from the game, from the characters. Even if there is, it is way to low. Almost can't hear anything. But overall, a neat game.

I really like it
I used to be an addicted PC gamer when adventure games ruled the land. Then came FPS games and I played mostly web games. I finally decided to try BF games and the reviews on this particular game seemed rather good. I have to admit. I am having fun. The puzzles are pretty good. Nothing really hard but still a challenge and fun. The lack of voice is acceptable and sort of provides a strange ambience as it creates this quiet, spooky atmosphere. Text at the top is hard for me as that is not where I look for it. All in all I recommend this game. It is a real adventure and not a HOG. Story is compelling. If I can find more like this then I will be a Big Fish Games fan.

The Witch's Prison
An excellent combination of story and game play. Graphics were great and the way the story was told, you were there before you knew it and wanted to retrace your steps because the adventure was that good. Grab your broom and fly...

Good Detective Game
This game has a good story line where the player tries to discover what happened to her father, who worked at a secret government installation. The storyline is smart and the puzzles are just right - no frustration. The ending makes sense and prepares the story for a sequel.

I had a mixed feelings about this game when I finished it. I did not like the plot and the ending just did not appeal to me, but over all I had a great time playing it.
The graphics isn't spectacular but it has this sort of creepy, grim atmosphere, that I like and that helps to create the dark mood that I am after.
The absence of Hidden object scenes gave my eyes a bit rest and for me was a plus, letting me focus on adventure and puzzles. The level of challenge was great, not too difficult not to easy, just fine to have fun.
The game is fairly short, for one, two evenings at most.
Overall I enjoyed it and I would recommend it, but I am aware not everybody is going to agree with me.

Not a bad little game!
I quite enjoyed this game. The puzzles were plentiful and challenging although not too difficult. No hidden object scenes which made a nice change.
The storyline/characters were very poor, I don't even know what it was all about, but the actual playing of the game was very interesting and entertaining.

Pretty good adventure game
This game is pretty good. First off, no HO scenes. The graphics are above standard and the storyline is good. The cutscenes aren't very good at all and the character amatuerish. I didn't notice any music or sound effects. No voice overs and the camera is basically your notebook. No map is needed as the game is fairly linear. The puzzles are fair, and all easily doable. There is no mode option, and I didn't use the tutorial so can't comment there. I finished the game in less than my average time so it is not a lengthy play.
Having said all that it is still a pretty good game for beginner or even intermediates. For the experienced player, I would consider this a nice filler game.

not as good as the others
No sound, no voice, lots of reading. I played for 10 min and was done. Did not see any HOS and just got bored real fast so not for me.

Utterly Enjoyable, But Far Too Short
'Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison' is one of the best BFG games as far as gameplay goes, which is a shame because the full version is far too short. Though this game is challenging, with a decent plot and a rather chilling conclusion, it felt to me as if it is half the length of the other games that I've played in the genre.
This truly may have been in contest as one of my favourite games on the site - the puzzles are decently challenging, the problems/solutions are very original, and I love the main character's snarky remarks when you examine objects on the screen - had it been a bit beefier. As it is, I want very much to like it, but was quite disappointed. Mixed Feelings.

- Good story line;
- No hidden objects in this game;
- Lots of puzzles to conquer - most are easy, some medium;
- No map, but you have a diary;
- Kiera has a camera so you can take pictures of any clue during the game to help solve the puzzles.
- Only one mode of play.
- Lots of reading to do.
- You have hint and skip buttons to help.
- Graphics and sound are good; no voice overs, except for the occasional few words from the witch to you when you solve certain puzzles - which are quite creepy.
- Game takes about 3-4 hours to play.
Overall a good game to play and definitely recommended.
