    I Had Such Fun!

    This is a charming game, full of wonder and excitement and fun. You are the DAUGHTER of the previous Princess Isabella (games I’ve never played, so this review is based on this game as a stand-alone, and the backstory is covered well.). You must rescue your mother from the witch’s curse. You have your Dragon and Fairy to help you, and YOUR TASK is to find your 3 fairy godmothers, imprisoned by the witch, before you confront her yourself.

    All these allies, and more you meet along the way, mean there are MAGICAL ABILITIES you can use on your quest. These are so many and varied, and require different ways of drawing on them, that they are a challenge in themselves.

    The game is BEAUTIFULLY DRAWN in a fantasy style. Once an evil influence has been REMOVED from a scene, it is TRANSFORMED into something so splendid... Ah! Simply gorgeous. Everything about this game is OTHERWORLDLY, even the music in some parts. I really enjoyed the VOICEOVERS, except for the fairy, whose high pitched voice was a bit irritating. To be expected from a fairy, though.

    The reason for not giving an otherwise delightful game five stars is its treatment of WIDESCREEN. There is only the FULL SCREEN or WINDOWED options and the game looks stretched on my WIDESCREEN. Worse, the CUTSCENES, and there are an awful lot of them, end up covering only a third of the vertical on my screen, leaving thick black areas top and bottom. REALLY irritating, and it detracts from the fabulous  look of these videos.

    This quest you’re on DOESN’T REQUIRE much in the way of TYPICAL ADVENTURE action. You bounce from PUZZLE TO HO SCENE most of the time. The PUZZLES are VERY EASY, and the HO SCENES are standard LISTS. So I see NOTHING FOR EXPERT ADVENTURE players.

    For the rest of us, this is a really fun game that won’t require too much head scratching, although I did need advice from the STRATEGY GUIDE a couple of times. HINT is also USEFUL outside HO Scenes. The game does have some imaginative ways of solving problems, and I certainly did enjoy that.


    Unlike its predecessors, which were unhappily short I gather, this game looks okay on length. It took me exactly ONE HOUR to complete the FIRST TWO CHAPTERS, of a total of 7, with a BONUS CHAPTER.

    Nothing here to grab attention, and I assume the CUTE SIDEKICKS are INTEGRAL to the game and therefore NOT EXCLUSIVE.


    For me, it’s a MUST HAVE, but the SE version, not CE.

    I Recommend This Game!
