The premise is simple, you're a princess (named Isabella, strangely enough) who has returned to her castle to find it taken over by a (wait for it...) witches curse. You travel from room to room finding objects with the help of a fairy similar to Tinkerbell who helps you along the way. She almost helps too much by explaining what needs to be done to each puzzle in order to solve it. Once puzzles are solved you search for mirror pieces to put together jigsaw puzzle style. Once a mirror is completed, a castle member is "released" and gives you an additional item to help you in your journey.
I think the game would have been much more challenging if we were left to figure things out on our own as Tinkerbell's help makes the game is rather easy. The seek and find puzzles aren't extremely challenging as many of the items you are looking for are in plain sight. Still, there were enough puzzles to take a couple days to solve all the way through. I estimate about 10-15 hours of play for a reasonably sharp-eyed individual. There are around 30 different rooms you have to search through; two floors of a castle, a garden, a stable, and a tower. Some of the rooms have multiple puzzles. If hidden-object games are your game of choice, you will find a lot to like in here and it's recommended.
Finally, if you do like this game and are looking for a similar challenge, I also recommend The Scruffs.
That being said, the game itself is entertaining enough. The scenery and graphics make it a very pleasant playing experience. My main quibbles are that 1. As already mentioned it is incredibly short and 2. There is really no replay value. I replayed the game a few times and have noted that nothing changes, and I mean NOTHING. You would think with all the different objects that they could at least alter slightly what you have to find each time. I mean, I know that some objects are necessary for the other puzzles, but not all of them serve that purpose.
I would honestly have to say that if I had realized how quickly I would have beaten the game and been aware of the lack of replay value, I definitely would not have bought this. And I have a hard time believing it is the top downloaded game on Amazon, I mean it's okay, but it's not like it's the greatest game ever.
You take on the role of Princess Isabella, who returns to her castle to find that the whole place has been cursed by an evil witch - and the prince you are all set to marry has apparently been captured by the witch, as well. Fortunately, a little fairy managed to escape and is now there to help you remove the witch's curse room by room. The transformation of each cleared room from a scene of darkened neglect to opulent glory really is something to behold. Along your way, you'll find informative bits of your mother's diary and glean critical information from castle denizens as you manage to free them from the witch's spell.
This is a game that both adults and children can enjoy. The "hidden object" puzzles are relatively easy, but some of the other puzzles require a little bit of thought (and may prove frustrating to young players). Fear not, though, because the fairy is always available to give you hints and even to solve some of the tougher puzzles for you. There's really no incentive to replay the game once you're done, but Princess Isabella: A Witch's Curse is definitely one of the better Hidden Object Adventure games out there.

The game needs more chapters but it's good.
