"Cypress Witch" is a good, entertaining, and very short Nook Tablet game. I finished it in 2.5 hours. That is really short for a G5 game. Normally, I can get 4-6 hours out of one game, depending on the difficulty. At $5 each you should get your moneys worth out of every game time. However short, it was fun to play anyway.

Some of the puzzles need more detailed instructions. I had to do the "generate colored smoke" task 3 times before I worked it out. About half of the mini games were do-able for me. The other half abused the "help" or "skip" buttons.

I liked the way that the story was told between sections did not use the usual cgi "cut scenes." Instead it used a series of single frame pictures to keep the story moving quickly. It explained some things, but not everything. It was a unique way to describe the storyline. It worked out well here.

The voice acting was better than usual and seemed to fit the characters this time. Normally, I turn the sound off because it is annoying, distracting, or too loud.

I wish the game was longer. I spent a lot of time on the boat, in the grooms familys home, and decorating tne hotel and grounds. But, the wedding was skipped over. I am disappointed. I would really like to know what happened after they crossed back into their own time. Did they continue camping and hanging out? Did they run away screaming? Did she write a book about their experiences with the good tree witch?

The best things I can say were that the graphics were good. Movement was good. There were no penalties for over clicking. You could find useful items laying around without having to complete a mini game every time.

And it did not say ( ...to be continued... ) I hate that so much! Paying $5 should get you a complete game, unless it is mentioned in the B&N description. (e.g. This is one part of a three part game.)

Disappointed

Although I loved the idea of the game and the game was wonderful as expected coming fom G5 I was disappointed that the game was so short. There was a lot of time spent just walking back and forth. I don't think this is a 5 dollar game maybe 2 or 3.

    Gr8 Game!

    Really enjoyed this game. Good graphics and story line. Some of the puzzles were a little tough to figure out, but you can always use the "hint" option. Highly recommend.

    Great game

    As others have mentioned, this game was shorter than I have come to expect from G5. However, I really enjoyed the story line and tasks. Graphics were gorgeous!

    Too short not enough game

    Though this game was fun and unique it didn't take much time to figure it out. I spent an hour and was finished. Way too little fun for what I expected. I wanted more of a challenge and this game was not a challenge. Great game for kids.

    Great

    This is a really neat game. It keeps you thinking in order to figure out the puzzles. Well worth the money, but try it to see if it's for you.
