Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantasy Fun Fun Fun this was just charming all the way through. Beautiful graphics, (reminds me of the drawn series. ) Not really hard but a delight to play. Really immersed you in the fantasy world. Music and voice overs were great and fit well. Not for a hard core player but for someone who wants to relax with a game they can play, leave and return to at any time and not be lost and just delight in the graphic style, it's perfect. The credits were even in the same magical style and it's the first time I've actually read them. I feel more attached to the production team after finishing their delightful labels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hansel and Gretel Are Locked in a Cage! Hansel and Gretel are locked in a cage, and the evil gingerbread men are all in a rage. Now the good witch has Chip as her guide, hurry now we're on her side! The evil witch has taken Hansel and Gretel and cast a sleeping spell on their mother! What a whimsical and lighthearted game this is. Mean and mischievous gingerbread cookie minions are everywhere! The only cookie not affected seems to be Chip the unibrow cookie who waits patiently to help you search for the kids, and every time he see's the evil witch's face he remembers and tells the story of Hansel and Gretel! The CE does have collectable cupcakes but this edition is a better buy in my opinion. The HOS are interactive and not really difficult and the mini games such as catching falling blueberries with a basket and letting green and rotten blueberries pass, are easy and lighthearted as well. The graphics are pale and definitely keeping in tune with the fairytale theme and designed to entertain kids and adults. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whimsical Artwork...very cute! Good game for beginners and kids, not alot of back & forth running around so you can't really get lost. Good hint system, shows you the room to go to next. Simple HOG's and puzzles. Cute storyline and beautiful artwork. Definitelly worth buying on special!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HANSEL, GRETEL AND GINGERBREAD This was a rather easy game. The graphics were simple; HOS were easy to find and the mini-games were fun. Dialogue not over-abundant. Really good voice-overs. At times, I thought the game was more about gingerbread men - they seemed to be everywhere. Liked how the gingerbread helper recharged - I'd stop playing to watch him. I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for a couple categories and ended up rounding upward because it is a cute little game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Differences to the Collector's Edition... :) Played the Collector’s Edition and tried the Standard- to find any differences: Mentionable Extras ONLY available in the CE: 40 cupcake-collectables, 16 achievements to earn, Bonus-chapter (approx. 40 min. to play) with an additional story and 3 more minigames and 4 hidden-object-scenes, strategy-guide. Facts: Graphics are comic-style but very adorable (reminded me of my beloved Drawn Series), the characters we meet are great!!!! cutscenes are unfortunately slightly pixelated, which is very unusual for EIPIX games (loved their last Final Cut:)), we have a journal with objectives and your playtime is shown, an interactive map showing you active areas and allowing you to jump, lockable inventory, 3 modes to choose from (you may change your mode during the game), and what I really loved was Chip, the Gingerbreadman!!! He is your story-teller and your hint, which is direction giving or opens a portal to „jump through“: During the time the hint is recharging he is running round in circles - made me smile every time he did that! We have 11 Hidden-object-scenes to play, all from list and slightly interactive, items are good to find. Some of those 11 you’ll play twice. So nothing special… Nothing new to expect from the minigames too: rotation- and sliderpuzzles, finding pairs, sudoku, finding differences… all in all there are 18 in the main-game and they are all on the easy side!!!! The maingame ends conclusively after at most 2,5 hours in the 2nd mode. It is a very short, but good game, worth a coupon-code anyway!! :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am the only one who can love a child more than a mother can In the distant past, a goblin, Garvin, lived deep in the forest and provided shelter and hiding for a kind witch and her two daughters after her husband, a knight, went off to war. After a long time waiting for her husband to return, she decided to leave the children in Garvin's care and went to look for him, but never returned. After a while, Gavin's supplies began to run low and he realized he would not be able to care for both children, so he took one of them, Maeva, deeper into the forest and left her there. Alone and scared, she found it hard to forage for food with all the wild animals around and was starving when, one day, an old woman found her and gave her a cookie from her basket and took her back to her big house of chocolate. Here she raised her and taught her the ways of a witch. Thinking that her mother had abandoned her and after her frightening experience in the forest, she distrusted all mothers believing that no mother could love a child more than she could. Eventually the old woman died and Maeva vowed to let no child go hungry. In the present, a mother, Isabella, sent her two children, a boy and girl, to the store to buy bread not knowing of an evil lurking nearby. On the way, the children meet a woman with a basket of sweets and enticed the children to go with her. She casts a sleep spell on the mother who awakes sometime later and realizes her children is missing. In the room you see a gingerbread man who speaks to you telling you his name is Chip and he is here to help you. In their bedroom, she sees an evil looking gingerbread man take something and jump out the window. In the kitchen you hear a voice of a woman asking where the children are and Chip says he recognized the voice as a kind witch with two daughters from long ago. At the inn, the innkeeper said he saw the children talking to a woman with a basket and that she was staying in a room there but hadn't been seen since. In her room you find strange things and ritual markings on the floor and a note that the children had been taken to her castle through the forest. You need to follow the trail and find the castle and rescue your children and save any other children that may have been abducted. A loose rendition of the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel with some dark twists, the graphics are well done cartoon storybook style with imaginative locations and whimsical childish-style characters with some weird and smart item interactions. The lion with the thorn in the paw was well done. Voice acting was pretty good and the music was light and easy listening. The gingerbread man named Chip becomes your hint button and also moves the story along through cutscenes as he remembers things. Additionally, presented during the game are notes and poems that are used to help the story along. There is a journal with objectives tab and a jump map with action areas indicated. Cutscenes are replayable from the journal. Inventory puzzles and minigames were of the type normally seen with some variation and were fairly easy. Hidden object scenes are interactive lists with scenes used twice with different objects to find. Some will not like the childish style of the graphics but others will find a few hours of diversion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fractured Fairy Tale Everyone knows the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel, but this game seeks to explore the origin story of the evil witch involved. Your character is the mother of those children, who pursues the witch following the kidnapping of them both. You will follow her trail through the town until the final confrontation. On the positive side, this game looks gorgeous. The graphics are whimsical and excellent, really reminding you of a storybook journey. HO scenes have objects that are readily apparent, so the sacrifice was the look over the difficulty. That's not always a bad thing. The story is told through a poem, and is effective enough, though doesn't add as much as the setup would indicate. The game is also very short and pretty simple, so you'll complete it in under a couple of hours for sure. Minigames are variations on ones you've likely played before. Overall, as a work of art, it's great. As a game, it's pretty average. Better efforts are out there for taking fairy tales and turning them into standalone stories. Swing and a miss for me. Scenic drive, though.
