Make love, not war?
A young prince and young princess of marrying age are locked up in the dungeon on a strange island. They want to escape but they do not seem to care for each other. Helping eachother seems a foreign concept. Hence the trouble with royals causes trouble for royals.
This is a charming, clever, colorful, delightful, humorous gem of a game. A delightful romp, if a bit short.

what a romp :D
A thoroughly delightful game ... hopefully more to come; could 2 stubborn people get into more strife than these two? I don't think so .... but maybe they could, I just hope I'm around to see it!
Graphics are very good, clean & crisp; VO is wry; characters' conversations are droll (& very accurate!); I found the music set on low sort of settled nicely in the background; puzzles are mdm lvl; very little to-ing & fro-ing to "build" needed items.
Only played the 1hr demo so far, but will definitely be buying it.
Bouquets to BF for this one ;)

This is a great game. Its fun, has voiceovers. You play as two different characters and have to figure out how to do things to proceed farther and get out of the dungeon you are being held captive in and then there's a love story that unfolds within it. When this game first came out, I loved it so much but from what I remember its rather short and I chose not to buy it full price but the fact its a daily deal today at 2.99 is AWESOME! I can't wait to finally figure out what happens in this game. I had read the walkthrough a couple years ago to get an idea but playing it will be so much better. Don't you love when games go on special that you totally forgot about but loved and waited patiently for? There are a lot of them on my list and this time I got lucky! Cheers for an excellent game!

Cute, kind of funny, short and easy game!
I can't recommend this game because of how easy and quick it was to play, even though I did enjoy it!
The storyline to this game is really cute - a prince and princess both captured and they have little tiffs. It's kind of funny. You switch between playing as the prince and the princess, which I thought was fun. I finished the game in 3 hours, so it is indeed super short. There are very few mini-games, and they don't use much skill.

Over too quick
Good game but a bit quick. The graphics are cute as is the story. I would recommend this game but you may not feel you got very much bang for your buck.

Very funny game
With great audiovisual effects. Not very challenging, but makes time pass lovely.

A fun game with several good aspects
Royal trouble follows the classic scheme of mix of puzzles and HO, your actions ought to follow a precise path - so you can't to decide or choose - and as consequence level of challenge is below average.
So, the game itself is neither very innovative nor very challenging... but despite this I purchased the full version immediately after the demo expiry.
Maybe, as a seasoned player, I am more interested in details than in the game as a whole, and this game has several interesting aspects.
1) The two main characters, Nathalien and Loreen. I liked them both, their constant bickering was really amusing, and gave me moments of good humour
2) graphic and sound. Both were of good quality, and some drawings are masterworks, at least to my taste
3) the user interface is immediate and easy to use. Believe me: this is not so common as it should be!
4) The developing team. This is a low-budget game with 3-4 persons, yet the result is good. I really appreciate small teams which work very hard and often obtain better results than emblazoned companies with dozens of programmers.
So, thumb up!

Fun but Frustrating
For me, this game was too short. I think it is because I skipped most of the puzzles because many of them were of the putzy unlock directional kinds that I really dislike. One or two are fine, but do not fill the entire game with them, please, especially when there is little direction and no hint button during the puzzle. You either do the puzzle or you skip it.
The scene puzzles where the characters are trying to find the things they need to advance the story are well done, with the weakness being you usually have to click on everything in the room in order to find the items. If you are experienced with games like this, you would be able to use that experience to know what to click on and save you some mouse clicking time.
There are no sparkles in this game, and the hint book during searching puzzles gives some direction, but not a lot. The game does require thought which is a strength.
Other strengths include very attractive graphics, appropriate music that is well played in the background, and fun spunky characters.
There needs to be more mystery and story, fewer putzy, "turn the object in the right direction" puzzles that take forever and drove me to the skip button, and more adventure style puzzles that advance the story.
Overall, this was another one of those games that felt like a prequel ad teaser for more to come. Fun, short, romp with cute characters and nice graphics. I recommend this game if you like directional object puzzles and need a short game for a rainy afternoon.
