Princess Isabella – A Witch’s Curse has a simple name that doesn’t come close to explaining the game or how great it is. A better name would be Princess Isabella and the Awesome Hidden Object Game That Goes With Her. With that said, PIatAHOGTGWH is quite the game. The only downside to it is that it honestly ended too soon for me. I was having a blast and wanted to keep going. I wish there had been other modes to play around with.
The story begins with a Princess. And a witch. And a curse. I know, contrived right? But they manage to make it fresh and new somehow. Princess Isabella returns from – a horse ride I guess – to discover her palace has been cursed and everyone she knows is now turned into broken mirrors. On her wedding day no less. From there, through finding hidden objects and using objects to solve various puzzles, she unravels the curse and saves everyone, with the help of a fairy friend. I love fairies, so it sold me right off the bat.
