Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse is the sequel to Princess Isabelle, in which you defeated a witch. That opponent returned and kidnapped your baby girl, named Bella. It's up to you to uncurse your lands, as now, darkness spread out of the castle.

And that sequel was really well done in terms of story, because I never expected that twist in the end. Now, we're introduced to more creatures: while the fairy is still your helper, you meet villagers, dwarves and even a dragon that will you replace the fairy for a moment!

The game mechanics are still the same from the previous games: you uncurse the scenes, you free people from their jails or their sleep, you play some puzzles, some HO, you use the dragon or the faery's powers, etc..

The settings are still wonderful and the soundtrack is still good. I experienced one crash though.

Go for it. Because I wanna know what will happen to Bella and Isabella. And I wanna see the dragon a little more because the voice acting behind it is fantastic.

Part 2 of Princess Isabella series and better than the first one.

This is not the collectors edition, so it has about 35 minutes less playtime as it's missing the CE version only area "The Witch's Trophy Tower" and lacks a small part of the story partially explaining the ending of this game.

Isabella's baby daughter Bella has been kidnapped by an evil force and Isabella has to follow the evil and de-curse areas as in the first game. In addition to the fairy helper from the first game she here gets a dragon companion with different abilities (but clearly the same voice actor).

The game has 2 difficulty modes, I didn't try the lower one but I assume all the clickables sparkle as they would in similar games. Without the sparkling some clickable areas can be harder to see, but normally not hard enough to get frustratingly lost. The map is helpful and you can teleport to any area, as well as see which areas you have cleared.

I encountered no bugs whatsoever and the game was very enjoyable. The puzzles felt a little harder than in the first game. Most dialogue is skippable with mouseclick.

Though this game seems harder and darker than the first one, it still feels targetted towards kids. Buy it on sale if you liked the first one and/or enjoy this type of game.

About 5 hours long to play through. Well written. Casual/Hidden Object game with some mini games. There's no counter-intuitive backtracking, no objects appearing in a scene after you've already cleared the area - none of that nonsense which is common in the poorly designed HOB games. Delivers exactly what you'd expect. Not worth full price, but definitely worth playing.

I read some reviews which said the game was buggy - I did not encounter any stability issues whatsoever.

My biggest complaint would be the Hint mechanism - even though the game isn't overly complex you can miss things and get stuck and in some instances the item missed is many scenes back - clicking hint is almost always useless, so you have to have a degree of patience to play it through, backtrack and revisit incomplete scenes.

This is another ported game from the "Big Fish collection" and an old one at that. This is a standard version not the extended one, which contains longer story line. The ending for the standard version is abrupt and feels very rushed. This is another proof how some companies are trying to generate more cash creating different versions of the same game. Why? Wouldn't be better to have a full story and create a bonus material not relevant to the story? Anyway, when porting old games to the Steam use CE versions instead to attract new players.
The game mechanics is similar to any other HO game, it has good interactive map, which helps a lot when the game becomes repetitive. Some voice acting is very annoying especially those of the helpers. And they go on and on, and you can't skip them. Some of the puzzles are too easy some are pretty illogical.
In short I would skip playing these games on Steam but would rather got the web site like Big Fish where these games are coming from. You might even get a better deal there.

Although the game is fun and very casual. I wanted to make my point out there by giving negative review.

Firstly, there is NO support from the devs at all. I encountered so many bugs and I couldn't get them fixed.
Secondly, there is A LOT of bugs that prevent you from progressing or crashes your system.
Thirdly, I could not figure out the story and reasons for why something occured, I had to google it and found out that this game is missing HALF of the content that explains things clearly and has more game play.

Other than these reasons, this game is very fun and I enjoyed it a lot.
