    To Be Continued!? Wha...?! ***

    GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES


    I had barely begun, just into the second chapter, and already it was clear this was a keeper. Not as flashy (i.e. good but not spectacular artwork) as the rest of my favourites, this game has a lot of original features as well as an interesting story.

    There are a few special attractions :

    Well drawn, clear graphics.
    Brilliant voiceovers.
    A grimoire plus mortal & pestle that help keeping track of your ingredients for spells, as well as just being cool.
    A magnifying glass in the HO scenes is a wonderful innovation.
    The HO scenes are particularly good - relevant objects, crisp and clean, no distortions, The puzzles are innovative twist on common ones.

    Difficulty:
    Two levels available. I chose "regular'. The level of difficulty in all three aspects - HO, puzzle, quest - are all roughly the same and just about right for a goodish player. Put the thinking cap on, but no need to stock up on valium.

    STORY: An evil power has trapped all the souls in the town in the spirit world, you, a young apprentice in the art of voodoo are the only one who can act. Your teacher’s spirit summons all her energy to give you a few special items of use in your quest to save the town, and is gone.

    The ending to the game has left the story at a cliff-hanger, and I had to re-evaluate my impressions of this game.

    Everything is still true, but they blew it by ending with a "to be continued", and we very much are a long way from the finish of the story.

    If a game can stand alone, a "to be continued" doesn't have to be bad. Not the case here.

    Two star demerit, developers!

    I don’t recommend this game!

    I really liked this one, despite the cliffhanger ending.  Just wish that they'd continued the story!

    Oh, and this is one of the extremely RARE games that actually integrated the bonus play into the main game.  No finishing, then going to play the bonus chapter, which may or may not have anything to do with the main story.

    Hm, I only ever played the SE. I really liked it too, although, even forgiving the ending, it was pretty short. I was hoping they'd put out a sequel too.
