Witches' Legacy: Awakening Darkness 4.2 5 20 20
Family Curse Witches' Legacy has turned the page, giving us a new chapter and a brand new curse. Without straying too far from the original saga of Lynn Watson and the battles she fought to use her magic only for good, this storyline is very fresh and exciting. Jack has just arrived at his mom's house for dinner, only to find utter chaos. Her exotic plants have become somewhat intimidating, with big eyes and even bigger teeth, poor mom has been cursed with an aging spell and little sister Nikki has been abducted by Cassandra an evil witch! It's become abundantly clear that Cassandra has no use for you, and you soon realize that the Aging spell has been cast upon you as well! This is the cruelest of spells, as your body begins to rapidly deteriorate until you're merely dust in the wind. Can you find the strength to defeat this darkness before your frail aging body can no longer function? I love the fact that the features from the previous games have remained, and are available in the Collector's Edition. There are 36 Collectible Puzzle Pieces that will form four different jigsaw puzzles that can be set as screensavers, and there are 34 Morphing objects to discover as well. I also enjoyed how the story intertwined with the original story, linking them together flawlessly. The graphics aren't over the top fantastic, but, they are decent, and the cinematics are very well done. Since the Imp (once family dog) belongs to Lynn, we get Bertha the ferret (once human) to help us out during the adventure, (Not nearly as cool as the Imp unfortunately) and there are several Achievements to earn as well. The Hidden Object Scenes are quite entertaining, there are several "zoom zone" puzzles, typical in this series where you are tasked with finding six fragments, items, or six symbols needed in the zoom zone, by searching the scene outside of the zoom. The HOP's are presented in several stages, first you may need to find four items that match the shapes shown, which will open up an interactive list, and when each list section has been found there will be fragments given to assemble, almost every section will give you bits and pieces of the story's background. You can also opt for a game of Mahjong if you're not into Hidden Object Puzzles. The Mini Games were a bit of a disappointment for me because they all seem way to easy with no complexity at all, but they aren't bad puzzles, they're just easy puzzles to solve. I've listed brief descriptions on some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Place gears to form a continuous chain reaction, then select the gears in the correct order lit as demonstrated. 2) Melt skull tokens using amber tokens with directional arrows. 3) Place square tiles correctly to form two separate pictures. The Collector's Edition has 9 Wallpapers, 4 Screensavers, 9 Concept Art pictures, 3 Music Soundtracks, 12 Achievements, 36 Hidden Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces, 4 Jigsaw Puzzles, 34 Morphing Objects, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

A NEW LOOK AT THE WITCHES' LEGACY SERIES Quite frankly I had hoped that the Witches? Legacy series had finally met its end after the last game so I was quite surprised to see yet another one come along. I was becoming quite bored with the series even though I love the dev and always look forward to their games. We now have a new saga in the series and it is sort of a prequel I guess as I am having some difficulty coming to an understanding of the story. There is a tie in of sorts that I am sure will develop as the storyline evolves. Awakening Darkness begins when you (Jack) arrive home for dinner with your mom and sister Nikki. What you stumble on when you open the door is almost beyond belief as you see a witch who has possessed your sister and turned your mom into an old woman. Will you be able to save the day and restore the balance before you too succumb to the witch?s curse and turn to dust? The graphics are quite good and very colorful. One of the things I enjoy most in games from this dev is that there is such attention to detail and one never knows what will respond when items are clicked. IMHO, I have almost as much fun clicking around the screen to see what happens as I do playing. It must take a huge amount of work to make all of the little items in a game respond and I certainly appreciate the effort the dev puts into their games. I love the interactive map that is provided in games from this dev. The map not only helps us transport quickly from place to place but it also shows where we have collectibles and morphing objects to find ? a very helpful feature. The HOPS and puzzles are just about what we would expect to find with some being multi-level and very interactive. The puzzles are easy except I always hate the ?Simon Says? type where we need to repeat the sequence. I always struggle with those and once I hit my tolerance level I need to use the skip button. As is usual for this game dev the CE version has collectible puzzle pieces and morphing objects hidden in each scene. Sometimes the morphing objects and collectibles are difficult to spot but I don?t give up until I find them. The rest of the CE content is the standard stuff that we expect to find in CEs. That being said, I think the collectibles and morphing objects make the CE very worthwhile. Do I like the game? Well, I certainly appreciate the new storyline that is different than the overly-done story of Lynne and Edward. I appreciate all of the fun little details in the game along with the excellent graphics and sound package. All in all it is an entertaining game and one that I am enjoying as I delve into the tale of Morgana, Cassandra and the new family they have caught in their snare and battle of the witches. Even though this game is perfect for me, please try the demo to see if it is one you will like. January 22, 2016
A great game, but which to buy, the CE or the SE? Well, the CE version of this game was so immersive I ran out the demo. So I bought the CE. I do not regret it. But which should you buy now that the SE is also out, if you have bought neither? You are Jack, and you come home to find that your mom and sister are victims of an evil witch who has been trapped for centuries until just before you arrived for dinner. You, of course, must save them. You get a couple of helpers along the way. The background is shown at first by a movie notable for its absence of yak-yak-yak. It's then explained gradually as you play, often through minigames. Much more interesting and fun than a bunch of exposition. The game plays seamlessly with no hesitations, with no extraneous, distracting icons, and with no clumsy actions required. For example, if you are holding an object and you need to zoom in on something to use it, you don?t have to drop the object, then zoom in, then pick the object back out of your inventory, then place it. All those petty annoyances that make you go, "Grr," are absent. Yay! The art is beautifully colored, though dark. The minigames are fun. Sometimes they seem easy, other times tricky. Sometimes they are in more than one stage and you can skip that instead of the whole puzzle, a nice touch. The HOPs are of two types. One type is simple matching to allow you to continue to the next puzzle. The others are full blown HOP scenes with several levels. For example, you find bottles to reveal lists and eventually put an item together. I am not a HOP person, but I know that all the HOP people will love them. The hint and skip are blessedly short, but they are not often needed. I fell in love with the game and had to buy the CE so I could keep playing. But since the CE is now out, you don't have that problem. The extras are ok, but one important one is missing--there is no ability to play minigames and HOPs over--a downgrade for me. But all the other features are there, including: -bonus chapter, -a puzzle that you find pieces for during the game, -morphing objects, -the usual music and art. So, if you really like the game and want to continue with the bonus chapter, or if you like the other special features, buy the CE. But at least buy the SE because you will have fun. January 26, 2016
Can We Please Have More Like This!! I will take this game play anytime over the same ole boring fantasy crud. With most offered now I cannot wait for them to end.This one is a good one!! Big Fish has talented game developers, they need to start stepping outside their easy comfort zone and create more like this!! January 27, 2016
Good Riddance to the Creepy Imp! This was an instant purchase: the first Witches Legacy without the clumsy imp! We have now a ferret which constantly sighs, but else is endearing and skittishly playful. It even knows how to skate on ice - with a snowboard! That ferret is clearly an upgrade. We play as scientist Jack Sanders - which felt a bit odd. Not because I'm a woman, but because I think that a man would be less keen (and maybe less apt) to stroll through a fairy-tale world to tinker with mushrooms, delicate flowers and children's toys. Also, Jack is a bit vain and gazes often into mirrors. But the lucky guy has two capable, female companions: Lynn's daughter Annabel and the bewitched girl Bertha, currently a ferret, help him with the magical bits and parts. I loved how you can click on everything - at least in the first scenes. The little violets wink coquettishly when you do so, strange plants trickle their glassy pollen, lotus flowers croak like frogs. Be sure to tickle the fish in the aquarium BEFORE you put the cage into the water ... and don't forget to try the hellish sweets on the table ;) The whole environment is so highly entertaining, so full of little surprises and lovingly created details: A branch displays all four seasons together, one twig in blossom, one with fruit, one is covered in ice. A little mouse eats Hypericum and falls asleep - but not before having quite adorably yawned. We slip into flowers, walk over clouds, dive into the mind of an old turtle, row in a magically enlarged leaf, encounter animated things and plants from every fairy tale we ever heard, and we discover whole new universes everywhere. Once, we are even downsized to the size of an gnome and find ourself on a breakfast table beside a giant fork. This game is like a goodie bag of pixies' dreams and Alice's wonderland, spiced with all sorts of exotic fruits and crops, thistles, dragon fruits, lychees, physalis, every single one true to detail. I was thrilled to recognize a rare kind of wild onion which I happen to cultivate in my garden. In English it's only listed by its Latin name Allium Cepa var. Proliferum. EleFun has really the knack with plants. WL 7 is also seasoned with humor. I had a good laugh about that lanky, unhelpful watchmaker. Watch him when he smokes the pipe of truth and rolls his eyes ... as if he just had inhaled of those illicit Indian medical herbs, lol. I was less impressed by the three witches. A missed opportunity, imho (think of Macbeth's eerie witches or those hilarious examples from the Disc World novels). Here, they are mostly puppets and silhouettes; however they look like any fashion model, or, in photographs, like actresses from a bad B-movie. They wear identical, black pointed hats of the kind a retired Hogwarts' teacher would wear. Far too young to know anything, they have no personality and go by the names Bella, Hella and Della, *titter* ... those names were the last straw. The responsible devs must have ingested one too many of pipes of truth, whilst they created the three witches :D Challenge is non-existent. Ok., there is a certain challenge in remembering where to fit this key or that puzzle piece, or in finding the last item in a HO without using hints. But generally the puzzles are easy. This does not make the playing uninteresting. You encounter the same old puzzles, yes, but they come in a completely new design, are witty and fun to play again. HOPs are a sheer joy, stunningly beautiful still lifes, and most of them multilayered. That is, you find for instance 8 birds and 8 flowers, before a list opens. Or you insert 4 shapes which open the items list, then 4 compartments unlock with the final item to assemble. Varied in everything, but also theme-related and well integrated into the game flow. And not least supported by gorgeous, mesmerizing music --- which puts a spell on you. Or at least on me; I caught myself at dawdling to find the last items, only to prolong the listening. Forget Cassandra - Alexey Arkhipov is the true wizard in this game. His tunes are pure magic: imaginative, mysterious ? and the best remedy against a bad temper. From one track I always get shivers on my eardrums. This composer is not even afraid to play with electronic beats. When did you feel the last time the urge to leap up from your chair and dance to game-music? As you can guess I'm addicted to this sound and own the Collector's Edition. If you want to know what you miss with the SE, check my review of the CE. Not too much, imho, except of course the music download. The main game ends conclusive. February 9, 2016
A Real Sleeper, Very Odd, Very Fun This is not your everyday horror hidden object game. Witches' Legacy reminds me a little of the Drawn series as the art is really beautiful. The lands are amazing. The music is pretty good - I think I'll buy the rest of the series. February 1, 2016
I really enjoyed this game The story was interesting. Loved the music tract, very relaxing. I liked the fact that I didn't have to go back and forth, mindless picking up items and placing them. Good game flow. Got a good laugh out of the dragon hat box. Enjoyed the scenery. If the puzzles were more difficult, would have been a perfect game. I like a little more of a challenge. Lots of fun!

Move Forward Entertaining Whimsical-Magical Game! Overall: Beautifully crafted game with whimsical monsters, numerous and attention-grabbing locations with each scene presenting several journeys. Most settings have a HOG and a mini game. The storyline moves forward easily with little backtracking. The graphics are sometimes a little on the bright side, but this is a whimsical and magical story and that corresponds well. Design and crafting are outstanding. The story is predictable but in a way that I found very entertaining and enjoyable. It?s a long game that I will replay. I gave it a five for its creativity and craftsmanship! Graphics: Excellent. Some colors are bright but a good blend. Certainly didn?t distract from the game, since it?s whimsical and magical. Sounds: Good Music: Good with the exception of rather repetitive during games. I turned down music during HOG. Characters: Beautiful, realistic humans. Monsters, some make you laugh, others well your children won?t have nightmares. Hints: Excellent and refresh quickly! Map: Really didn?t need it. The storyline moves forward with minimal backward steps, love that in a game. HOG: Interactive and an excellent mix of games. Great use of HOG for items needed to complete tasks. A few items are too well hidden but overall most items are clearly presented and easy to see. Mini: Excellent from easy to a few complicated ones. Not a mini fan, but I enjoyed trying to solve most of them. September 18, 2016
. I loved everything about this game. It was beautifully drawn and colors were just right. The game had just enough difficulty without having to use a hint. Played for quite a while. Well worth the money. Not much back/forth. Bravo! Well Done! 2016 May 5, 2016
What can I say that hasnt already been said? I LOVE everything about this game. Its fun, has beautiful graphics, great storyline and a nice long game. You cant go wrong with this one. The HOS gives you a choice of doing matching which I really like, Enjoy! February 4, 2016
