Strangely cute

This short little game turned out to be harder for me than I’d like to admit, but was still fun once I started understanding its particular logic. The only real problem I had was one of inventory manipulation, where I knew the solution but couldn’t figure out how to make it work. Needless to say, I skipped that puzzle and finished the final one through process of elimination, later consulting a walkthrough to understand the prior one. Can’t say it was unfair, especially with all the “escapers” I’ve played, but a little better description of the game’s mechanics might have been helpful. Still, there was nothing unjustly hard about it, the graphics were fairly polished, and the ending was absurd but funny. Now that I have this one under my belt, I would look forward to another one from this dev with, as others have suggested, a little more depth and perhaps a story. Thanks for the magic!

Engaging, involving, nice to look at, too

I really enjoyed this game! I found the puzlles fun to solve, and the game went along at a nice clip.

“Strange Magic” has a very nice look, and the music was just right – – not intrusive and it did create a nice mood. One thing I thought was really charming, was the presence of a few “red herrings” — personal visual touches that made me think about that there really was a real person behind this game. Also, there is a modest little offer of a “hints” feature that was very reasonably priced, and I think it added to the experience of playing. Not required, though.

The ending was very fun and I left the game with a big smile on my face. Thanks very much!

Short but Delightfully Sweet

I have played COUNTLESS escape and point-and-click games over the years. This one stands out as a delightful reminder of why I love these games. Especially when it comes to free games of this kind, it typically becomes more about trying to crack the developer’s MO rather than working logically through puzzles and clues. This one actually follows old-school clues and makes logical leaps (what a concept!) Beautiful animation, easy controls, fun puzzles. (Side note: I have a journal somewhere with those EXACT same drawings from Myst. The nod made my nerd heart flutter and explained part of why this game is so good: the developer understands good game play!) Thank you for a fabulous game!
