GrinnypA long time ago, in a land far, far away, lived a lovely princess by the name of Isabella. Isabella was not your typical princess. Rather than spending her days languidly awaiting rescue by a handsome prince, Isabella took matters into her own hands and strode forward to unlock the curse, fight the evil witch, and rescue her intended prince herself. Now, a year later, the same witch is back and wreaking havoc again. The castle is again cursed, Isabella's true love the prince is missing, and worst of all, the evil hag has kidnapped Isabella's new baby for some nefarious purpose. In Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse the titular heroine is back and badder than ever in this fantastical adventure/hidden object hybrid by Gogii games. Oh, it is on, witch!

princessisabella2b.jpgA bewitching animation at the beginning of Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse lays out the story in broad strokes — accompanied by a haunting version of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" — and is guaranteed to pull you right in. The horrendously cute (and fantastically annoying) fairy guide from the first game immediately shows up and the player is off and rolling. With the help of your fairy companion (and another surprising addition along the way) it is up to the gamer to find their way out of the castle and through the kingdom, searching for the witch's lair and removing the curse upon the land along the way. You must find the missing prince, defeat the witch, and rescue baby Bella, all of the usual tropes of a classic (yet twisted) fairy tale.

Exploration is as simple as the click of a mouse as Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse plays out like a classic point-and-click adventure game. There are objects in each scene that may become useful later; some found immediately, some found within classic hidden object scenes, and some objects which can only be retrieved with the help of your companion(s), who have special powers that allow them to reach items that you are not able to. These objects will go into a handy scrolling inventory to be used at a later point in the game, whether it be to break a curse, rescue a villager, or unlock a helpful character whom the witch has frozen with another curse.

princessisabella2d.jpgYou will also pick up useful bits of magic left over when you break a curse, mini-spells that can transform the world around you in helpful ways. The useful and logically designed control system also includes a changing cursor to indicate areas of interest, a scrolling "task" screen which helps you remember what needs to be done, a useful diary that keeps track of information learned, and your companions themselves who among their abilities count the talent of a recharging hint feature. Rounding out the experience are a plethora of puzzles and mini-games that must be solved as well, although they can be skipped after a certain amount of time.

Be prepared, also, for other fairy tale icons to pop up unexpectedly, their stories intersecting with your own as Isabella fights her way to her ultimate goal. Can she rescue her family and save the kingdom in time? Will there be a happily ever after? Only time will tell.

Analysis: The first game in the series, Princess Isabella: A Witch's Curse hit the scene back in 2009 with a stunning array of fun puzzles and exceptional graphics, setting a standard that has not often been topped. Well, Gogii has definitely topped it with this amazing sequel. Attention has been poured into every detail of Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse, be it the backgrounds, voice acting, characters, storyline, animations, and gameplay.

princessisabella2c.jpgSome might miss the over-the-top baroqueness of the original castle, but the scenery this time around is still magnificent with each view having two different versions: the cursed and the cleared. Enough cannot be said about the ravishing graphics, from the control designs to the adorable animations and everything in-between. Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse is at once lighter (with much more sarcastic humor than the original) and darker (with the intense storyline of a kidnapped child) than the original. The darkness is especially ramped up with the musical accompaniment which weaves classic childhood songs into its themes. Once you've finished the game you may never listen to "Mary Had a Little Lamb" the same way again.

If there is one complaint that can be leveled against Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse it is that, like so many other adventure/hidden object hybrids on the market today, it is rather short. Playing time will depend upon the experience of the player, the choice of mode (easy or difficult), and whether or not you decide to spring for the Collector's Edition with its extra gameplay. On average the gamer can probably look forward to about three hours of solid gameplay, although the hefty "extra" gameplay in the CE will probably add another hour or so. For those debating whether or not the extras in the CE are worth it, in this case they most definitely are. The "extra" gameplay is extensive and includes some fantastic challenges and puzzles, along with a chance to revisit parts of the original lovely Baroque castle from Princess Isabella: A Witch's Curse.

With its darker and more powerful storyline and haunting music Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse still delivers the goods of involving, entertaining, challenging gameplay. The ability to chose two different modes of play makes Princess Isabella fun for both beginners to the field and seasoned adventurers looking for a challenge. Beautiful beyond belief and exciting to play Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse is a definite hit. Now how long do we have to wait this time around for a sequel?

A Collector's Edition is also available. It includes wallpapers, concept art, the music soundtrack, an amazingly hefty extra adventure that blends into the regular gameplay seamlessly, a wonderful animated teaser for the planned sequel, and a built-in strategy guide. Remember that Big Fish Game Club Members pay only $13.99 for Collector's Editions (or 2 club credits), and collector's editions count 3 card punches of 6 total needed for a free game.

  • There are a few combos in the screenshot to give you the idea.

  • Screenshot

Save the Phoenix

  • On top of a pillar inside the Ice Palace is a huge bubble encasing a Phoenix.

  • Your goal will be to free him.

  • Zoom in on each of the guardians and to make them face the Phoenix, you will need to turn their bodies.

  • I suggest turning the lower body, as shown in the screenshot, and the upper body will move with it.

  • Once you have freed the Phoenix, he will melt the Ice Palace sending the water down.

  • Screenshot

Fountain Hidden Object Scene

  • Like it says, this could be tricky.

  • The items you will get for your Inventory are the sponge and 3 makeup containers.

  • The tricky part is that the hands holding the objects keep disappearing into the fountain and then pop up with a different object.

  • Since there is no click penalty, I suggest to begin with that you keep clicking all over the scene in hopes of making your list to find smaller.

  • Then you can wait for an item to pop up and grab it.

I love hidden object games...and this seemed to be okay...but I finally had to stop.
That fairy is indeed annoying...so annoying to me that I quit the game.
Too bad.

Oh, come on Lsamsa...it is a wonderful game as was the first one that I played many times.

First rule as to not let the Fairy bug you is to turn off the sound. Second thing, which I hope will get you to continue the game is the Fairy's acquired abilities help Isabella and you with your quest to find Bella. Hope you will give it another shot after you read my spoiler comment. :)

You will get an adorable little dragon helper once his egg is broken. He has other abilities that will help you, and he will sometimes be around alone or working with the Fairy to help you complete your journey.

Chapter 5: The Prince

Free the Prince Mini Game

  • Zoom in on the Prince and place all 12 Black Gems in the vacant spaces.

  • Your goal is to fill all the blue outlined spaces with the gems. The solution is shown in the screenshot.

  • I've played the game a number of times and the numbered formula to complete the game is so complex that you can get lost in the numbers. I decide the best idea is to let you know how the arrows work.

    • Arrow 1 moves the right diagonal row of 4 below it and needs to be completely filled.

    • Arrow 2 moves the left diagonal row of 4 below it and needs to be completely filled.

    • Arrow 3 moves the left diagonal row of 5 below it and only needs 2 gems.

    • Arrow 4 moves the right diagonal row of 5 below it and also only needs 2 gems.

    • Arrow 5 moves the left diagonal row of 4 below it and must be completely filled.

    • Arrow 6 moves the right diagonal row of 4 below it and must be completely filled.

    • Arrow 7 moves the 3 gems in the diagonal row below it, one of which must be filled.

    • Arrow 8 moves the 3 gems in the diagonal row below it which only needs one filled.

  • Just play with it, use rows 7 and 8 to help fill 1 and 2. Think of it as a challenge that seriously works, or if you get too frustrated, ask one of your helpers to skip it.

  • Screenshot

Witches Tree Portal

  • The Prince does not appear happy to see Isabella.

  • You have arrived at Witch's Claw, which is the first island on the way to the Witch's castle.

  • Zoom in on the claw and place your 5 gold rings on each claw finger.

  • They don't exactly fit, so use your remaining Transformation Potions on each ring.

  • Another portal will appear, so click on it to see what happens next.

  • Screenshot

  • The Collector's Edition is the only version currently available, so you will be given your choice if you wish to continue to the bonus content now or access it later from the "Extras" menu.

Defeat the Witch Hidden Object Duel

  • In order to defeat the Witch, you will need to find all of your objects in the 5 rounds faster than the Witch.

  • Screenshot

  • This screenshot has the names of all the items shown by there location. Use whichever screenshot helps you the most.

  • I suggest playing the duel in Windowed Mode so you can stop the scene, without pausing it, in order to give yourself time to look around. Just place your cursor on the very top bar that shows the game's name.

The End

  • When you have defeated the Witch, watch the ending cut scenes to see what may be in your future with the next saga of Princess Isabella.

Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse
Collector's Edition Bonus Chapter Walkthrough

General Comments

  • If you chose to play the Witch's Lair duel before the Bonus Chapter, you now have access to all the "Extras" in the Collector's Edition.

  • When I said "No" and played the duel right away, I found I still had to play the duel again after I played the Bonus Chapter.

  • Nessie's Frost Ability becomes available in the Bonus Chapter, so you can freeze objects.

Part 1: Outside Witch's Tower

Enter the Tower

  • When you enter the Witch's Claw Portal, you will be taken to the Tower.

  • Zoom in on the door for a Mini Game to unlock the door and enter.

  • Your goal is to raise the blocks according to their vertical and horizontal numbers.

  • For instance, if a vertical row says "I - III - III", you need to raise that number of blocks with spaces in between each group of blocks.

  • Make certain that your horizontal block also match for each row.

  • The solution is shown in the screenshot.

  • Once you have completed the game, the door will open for you to enter.

  • Screenshot

Part 2: The Witch's Trophies

The Paintings

  • The Witch has collected a number of trophies which she has stored in paintings.

  • Painting 1 is the Mushroom Forest.

  • Painting 2 is a Ship's Deck.

  • Painting 3 is a Gingerbread House.

  • Painting 4, which isn't accessible as yet, is an Ice Palace.

  • Climb the stairs and check out each painting before going to the Gingerbread House to begin your journey to fix the mess the Witch has created.

  • Screenshot

Gingerbread House Entrance Mini Game

  • When you go to the Gingerbread House, you will need to complete a Mini Game to enter.

  • Your goal is to connect all the lifesavers with just one ribbon candy.

  • There are several solutions, so I have shown a some samples in the screenshot, and provided you with one completed solution to see what it looks like.

  • Screenshot

Gingerbread House Kitchen

  • Enter the Gingerbread house and note the fire boiling somebody in a kettle.

  • You need to put out the fire to save the character but you don't have the means at the moment.

  • Zoom in on the bread on the table and take the Knife.

  • Play the Hidden Object Scene on the shelves.

  • Screenshot

Gingerbread House Hidden Object Scene

  • Collect everything on your list, and you will get the 4 shields for your Inventory.

  • Screenshot

Ship's Deck

  • Go down to the Ship's Deck painting, and zoom in on the Mermaid hanging at the left.

  • Use your knife to cut her down, and she will give you some of the Sirens' Fish Oil.

  • Check out all the magnifying glasses, and then exit down to Mushroom Forest.

  • Screenshot

Mushroom Forest

  • Use the fish oil on the rusty wire binding the Leprechaun to free him.

  • You will get the wire for your Inventory.

  • He has lost his pot of gold, so go in search of it back up at the Ship's Deck.

  • Screenshot

Harp Mini Game

  • Zoom in on the Harp and place the wire from the Leprechaun to trigger a Mini Game.

  • This is a repeat the sequence game with 6 rounds.

  • The sequences are always the same, but with an additional string added each round.

  • The strings are numbered in the screenshot and the sequences are as follows.

  • Round 1: 4 - 6 - 4 - 5.

  • Round 2: 4 - 6 - 4 - 5 - 6.

  • Round 3: 4 - 6 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 3.

  • Round 4: 4 - 6 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 3 - 2.

  • Round 5: 4 - 6 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 3 - 2 - 1.

  • Round 6: 4 - 6 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 3 - 2 - 1 - 5.

  • Once you have completed the game, the Sirens will be asleep, so zoom in and grab the pot of gold.

  • Screenshot

Mushroom Forest

  • Return down to the Mushroom Forest, and zoom in on the stump.

  • Place the pot of gold in the stump and a rainbow will appear.

  • Follow the rainbow up to the Ice Palace painting.

  • Screenshot

The Ice Palace Entrance Mini Game

  • The rainbow has melted the ice for you to enter the painting.

  • Click on the entrance for a Mini Game.

  • Match 3 or more tiles to break the ice and enter the Ice Palace.

  • It takes some time until all the ice is broken.

  • If you like Match 3 games, just keep clearing the tiles.

  • If Match 3 is not your favorite, there is always the "Skip" button once it is full.

  • There are a few combos in the screenshot to give you the idea.

  • Screenshot

Save the Phoenix

  • On top of a pillar inside the Ice Palace is a huge bubble encasing a Phoenix.

  • Your goal will be to free him.

  • Click for a close up of each of the 4 guardians, and place a shield in his hands.

  • I've marked the left and right guardians together in the screenshot because they grab the shield in the same way.

  • Once you have placed all the shields, your next task will be to turn them to face the Phoenix.

  • Screenshot

  • The screenshot below shows the ultimate solution to free the Phoenix.

  • Your task is to individually click on each of the guardians to turn them around to face the Phoenix with their shield so that it reflects the light to free him.

  • Zoom in on each of the guardians and to make them face the Phoenix, you will need to turn their bodies.

  • I suggest turning the lower body, as shown in the screenshot, and the upper body will move with it.

  • Once you have freed the Phoenix, he will melt the Ice Palace sending the water down.

  • Click down and enter the Gingerbread House.

  • Screenshot

Gingerbread House

  • The water from the melting Ice Palace put out the fire under the caldron.

  • Zoom in to collect the young Centaur and take her to the top of the Tower.

  • Screenshot

Top of the Tower

  • Talk to the Centaur and give him his child.

  • He will give you his Trident, so exit down to the Ship's Deck.

  • Screenshot

Ship's Deck

  • Zoom in on the ship's figurehead and give him the trident.

  • In exchange, you can collect a Unicorn Gem from his hand.

  • Return to the top of the Tower.

  • Screenshot

The Unicorn Mini Game

  • Go through the archway to the Roof.

  • Zoom in on the Unicorn and place your gem to trigger a Mini Game.

  • Your goal is to create the pattern shown in the screenshot.

  • Move the gems around the outside circle by clicking on them.

  • Use another gem as a buffer to get the second one to pop into the middle circle.

  • First, try removing one gem to the outer circle and then moving the others around the middle circle to see how many matches you get.

  • When you have completed the game, click on the Unicorn to fly to the door of the Witch's Castle.

  • Screenshot

Part 3: The Witch's Castle

Castle Door Mini Game

  • Slide the circles around inside the iris so that all the outside circles no long have black sections in them.

  • The solution is shown in the screenshot.

  • Enter the Courtyard of the Castle.

  • Screenshot

Courtyard

  • Zoom in on the street light and take the Candle.

  • Collect the Flies, play the Hidden Object Scene, and solve the Mini Game at the Castle Door.

  • The solution to the Door Mini Game is shown in the screenshot.

  • Screenshot

Find the Flies

  • Collect the 10 flies shown in the screenshot.

  • After I played it and the Hidden Object Scene, I noticed it had another magnifying glass, so I played it again and ended up with 20 flies.

  • I see no reason to play it twice because you are only going to need 6 flies later on.

  • Screenshot

Fountain Hidden Object Scene

  • Like it says, this could be tricky.

  • The items you will get for your Inventory are the sponge and 3 makeup containers.

  • The tricky part is that the hands holding the objects keep disappearing into the fountain and then pop up with a different object.

  • Since there is no click penalty, I suggest to begin with that you keep clicking all over the scene in hopes of making your list to find smaller.

  • Then you can wait for an item to pop up and grab it.

  • Screenshot

Entrance Hall

  • The chandelier is blocking a door, so use Nessie's lift ability to put it where it belongs.

  • Zoom in on the painting at the left.

  • Screenshot

Entrance Paintings

  • It doesn't really matter which lever you open first as long as both of them are opened so you can go through the door.

  • Screenshot

Part 4: The Portrait Gallery

The Mirrors

  • There are 5 mirrors in the Portrait Gallery that are all twisted versions of Princess Isabella's household staff and family: the Gardner, her father the King, the castle Chef, her mother the Queen, and her Maid.

Gardener

  • Since we have a Green Crystal Ball, our first choice is the Gardener.

  • Click for a close up and place your crystal ball.

  • The mirror will break leaving Stained Glass Berries on the floor, so collect them.

  • A portal has opened in the mirror so go through it.

  • Screenshot

  • When you enter the portal, you find yourself in the Greenhouse.

  • The Witch's favorite plants, Venus Fly Traps, are in abundance, so your first task is to feed the critters with the flies you previously captured.

  • Click on the Dragon Berries and Nessie will get Frost Ability.

  • Try out his new ability by freezing all the plants.

  • Screenshot

  • Once all the plants are frozen, use the Fairy's Diamond Ability to smash them.

  • The whole scene wasn't even real but an illusion created by the Witch.

  • Once you destroyed the illusion, the room becomes an empty shell.

  • All that is left is a Blue Crystal Ball for you to collect.

  • Return to the Portrait Gallery.

  • Screenshot

King

  • Zoom in on the portrait of the King and place your Blue Crystal Ball.

  • Collect the Stained Glass Dragon and enter the Portal.

  • Screenshot

  • You are transported to the King's Observatory.

  • Click on the portion of the telescope marked in green in the screenshot.

  • The solution to this Mini Game is random, but your goal is to move the rings to line up a black hole as shown in the screenshot.

  • Click on the eyepiece of the telescope and place your candle on the bookcase.

  • Zoom in on the upper portion of the telescope for a Mini Game.

  • Your goal is reverse the lenses as shown in the screenshot solution.

  • Once again you have destroyed the illusion and are left with an empty shell of a room.

  • Collect the Pink Crystal Ball and return to the Portrait Gallery.

  • Screenshot

Queen

  • Zoom in on the Queen and place the crystal ball.

  • Collect the Stained Glass Knight and enter the Portal.

  • Screenshot

  • The Queen taught Isabella how to apply makeup, so zoom in on the doll sitting in front of the mirror.

  • Your goal is to make her look like her reflection in the mirror.

  • Clean her face with the sponge to see what is under the mess on her face.

  • Now that you have a cute clean face, apply the blue makeup to her eyes.

  • Place the red makeup on her cheeks, and the pink makeup on her lips.

  • The scene turns into a shell of the room leaving a Red Crystal Ball for you to collect.

  • Return to the Portrait Gallery.

  • Screenshot

Maid

  • Collect the Stained Glass Smoke and enter the Portal.

  • Screenshot

  • You are in a bedroom with a monster under the bed and one in the closet.

  • Play the Hidden Object Scene for some help to get rid of the monsters.

  • When you are finished, zoom in on the fireplace and then the window.

  • Screenshot

  • Collect everything on your list to get Paper, Kindling, a Log, and Lever for your Inventory.

  • Screenshot

  • Zoom in on the fireplace and place your paper, kindling, and log in that order.

  • Place the lever as shown in the screenshot and open the flue.

  • Use your Fairy's Fire Ability to light a fire in the fireplace to get rid of the monster under the bed.

  • Screenshot

  • Zoom in on the window and have Nessie use his Lift Ability to get rid of the boards.

  • The light from the opened window will get rid of the monster in the closet.

  • Once again you have destroyed the illusion.

  • This time you can pick up a Yellow Crystal Ball before returning to the Portrait Gallery.

  • Screenshot

Chef

  • The last portrait is the Chef so zoom in and place the Yellow Crystal Ball.

  • Collect the Stained Glass Sun at the top of the frame and enter the Portal.

  • Screenshot

  • You are in a Nursery that looks just like the one in the Royal Castle.

  • Zoom in on the mirror and use Nessie's Smoke Ability to see what is written on the mirror.

  • It is a bar of musical notes.

  • Zoom in on the bassinet in search of a place to play the music.

  • Screenshot
    Bassinet Musical Mini Game

    • Your goal is to use the sliders to make the second bar of notes match the first bar.

    • The notes in black are the ones you need to match, so slide the tabs to create the solution shown in the screenshot.

    • Screenshot

  • Your shell of a room will bring you a plain Crystal Ball, so collect it and return to the Entrance Hall.

Stained Glass Door Mini Game

    4. Place you dragon in the scene, and he will fly in to capture the loves of the lady dragon.

    5. Their love produces a dragon egg.

    6. Place your knight in the scene, and he arrives to battle the male dragon as the lady dragon looks on.

    7. The knight slays the dragon so the lady dragon takes off with her egg before the knight can kill her too.

    8. The knight takes off and the dead dragon disappears, so place your smoke in the scene.

    9. The smoke comes flying out of the castle with the dragon egg.

    10. The mother dragon's hand comes out from the rocks just like when you found Nessie's egg.

    Screenshot

Witch's Throne

  • Enter when the door opens and zoom in on the Witch's Throne.

  • Place the Crystal Ball and click on Prince Adam's image.

  • The Witch has possessed the Prince with one of her roses.

  • Enter the Witch's Lair.

I'm not sure why you can't find Nessie, but you might want to take a look at the last 3 scenes in Chapter 2 of the walkthrough above the comments. There is a description of what happens as he hatches, along with screenshots.
