Suburban Timewaster

I play video games and review them.

Witch’s Pranks (Gamehouse.com)


When an ugly witch wants a handsome prince, she puts a curse on each one that rejects her, turning them into frogs. The only way to break the curse is a kiss from their fiancé. Fortunately, a traveler wanders across the witch’s castle and vows to return each prince to their one true love.

This is your typical parody fairy tale with every cliché you can imagine. The moral of this story seems to be ugly men can get whatever woman they want while ugly women have to settle for whoever will have them. Sadly, that’s a common double standard in this day and age. If you think I’m being unfair, take a look at what some the princes look like when they’re human and see that each one of them gets a beautiful princess, you’ll see what I mean. One thing I like about Once Upon A Time is that the characters would reject suitors that were attractive for the sole reason that this person wasn’t the love of their life.

The game play is your typical hidden object. You go from scene to scene collecting items for your inventory. You need to use these items to advance throughout the game and you will have to do some backtracking. If you’re stuck, use a hint.

This game is entertaining but the double standards are grating. I give it 5 out of 10; a fun take on fairy tales.
