Hi friends! I've lost count on this series, but this is one of many. As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story line to others, but I must say, this story is old and boring. Again, this game has those awful blue and purple hues that are very tiring on the eyes. How hard is it to clean up some color? Graphics are pretty nice, game play was good. Voices were a little better than the last one in this series, but not by much. Sound FX okay. At least the ferret didn't grunt with every move this time. Music was okay but monotonous.

HOPs are nothing new and items were not difficult to find. At least they were somewhat varied. You could switch to a match 3 if you get bored with the HOPs. Puzzles were the same as any other game and too no time or brain power to complete. Nothing challenging here. The hint system was helpful. There was no transport feature in this game, which would have helped, since you do a lot of back tracking to the same few locations for quite some time. I got bored looking at the same scenery.

When a game or series becomes boring, and you can't really think of anything positive to say about it, it's time to retire it, or at least upgrade it. I did manage to make it completely through the demo, but it was not easy to do. There will be those who like this game and don't mind the colors, but they are very tiring on my eyes. I found this game to be geared more toward a true beginner and not someone who has been playing HOPs for any length of time. For that reason only, I will recommend it for a beginner. The last few in this series have been like this, so they did not get added to my collection. The game moved very slowly and had absolutely no challenge and nothing made me want to buy it. Nope, no buy for me on this one either.

As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for. Thanks for the reviews.

Witches Legacy was one of my favorite game series back in the day, because I loved the ongoing saga of Lynn and Edward. Since the game drifted away from Lynn and Edward, towards Jack and Annabel, they no longer have that appeal. To make matters worse, the games drifted away from the realistic world, to a world filled with oddness, and then there's Bertha the ferret, don't even get me started on that hot mess! I'm sure this game will be a hit for those players who are new to this series, and never got the chance to be a part of their "family" You should really go back to the roots of the game, because they were fantastic stories.
Witches' Legacy is now all about the Sanders' family, Julia and her children, Nicky and Jack. Bertha is an unofficial family member, a witch who is able to change herself into a ferret, but really possesses no other witchly powers. Jack is a scientist, and a non-believer, that is until he came face to face with the evil witch Cassandra, in The City That Isn't There, who cast an aging spell on him and his mother, after taking over his sister Nicky's body, In Dark Days To Come,Jack's girlfriend, Anabel, was tricked into entering the sacred city to take a staff that could only be retrieved by a good witch. This was a nefarious plan concocted by the last remaining dark witches who called upon the Ice Sorcerers twins, Mara and Marcus, as a last ditch effort to destroy all that is good. Now, in Covered By The Night, Jack must rescue Anabel once more (what good is it to be a witch if you can't defend yourself from anything or anyone?) It's Halloween and a rare, Blood Moon eclipse occurrence has allowed the Supreme Sorcerer Felix, to escape from the sphere that Queen Morgana imprisoned him in before she died. Like all evil sorcerers, Felix needs souls, witchy souls, ands lots of them, including Anabel!
Other than the fact that Witches' Legacy no longer centers around the characters that rose the game to stardom, everything else remains, in true Witches Legacy formation. There are several items in each scene that can be interacted with, and in the Collector's Edition version, there are 33 Morphing Objects, and every scene has at least one hidden Jigsaw Puzzle Piece, that allows you to assemble 4 different Screensavers. The only problem is that the cursor changes to a hand when there is a collectible, but it also changes to a hand when you can interact with an item.
The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, and usually multi-layered. There are Interactive List finds, Silhouetted Shape finds, Keywords in Sentence finds, Multiple Symbol finds, and Fragment finds, and there is an alternate Matching game available. Some of the scenes are repeated in the same location, including the ridiculous "lab Mice" scene.
The Mini Games are decent, and most are of medium difficulty. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo:
1) Lead Jack through the maze using items you find to progress, and scrolls that progress the story.
2) Rotate circles to create a path for the owl.
3) Connect all tiles with a line that doesn't cross paths.
4) Place moon phases correctly.
5) Find 4 hidden symbols hidden within a sketch.
6) Deflect the attacks by dragging the matching crystal to the portraits as the become highlighted.

L O A D I N G my review - game play was simplistic but okay.

L O A D I N G another comment - screen clarity a little on the fuzzy side.

L O A D I N G - if you can stand screen L O A D I N G between every darn scene then this game is playable. For me, it is incredibly T E D I O U S and A N N O Y I N G.

Shame, overall not a bad game in this continuing series.

Very choppy, and unfortunately neither Jack nor Bertha (nor their nemesis) is wildly compelling. The constant "Loading" interruption didn't help. The art for individual scenes is good, and I found the brainy Lab Mice a welcome comic relief. But this episode seems too disjointed to work well. . . .
