Spirit Walkers: Curse Of The Cypress Witch unravels a mystery of a ghost of the young woman captured in these woods. You play as Maylynn who, with two female friends, goes on an innocent hiking trip and soon finds trouble befalling the group. Things get creepy and scary, and on top of it, a ghost of a woman starts showing up in mysterious places and then one of your friends gets seriously hurt. Looking for help you end up at a beautiful and majestic cypress tree and there you meet the witch herself who offers to help you save your friends. In return however she asks for a favor: you’ll need to travel to a different time and dimension and undo a thing that once went wrong. You’ll have to travel between times and dimensions, explore the world of ghosts and lost souls and overcome an ancient evil.
That is essentially the description given by the publisher G5, and it’s a great way to get this reviewers attention and I will just assume that you are interested as well. Now the big question is, Can this spiritual description be matched by game play that captures the imagination?
Well to start off the game has a great art style, the music helps add to the mystic of the story and the environment, and on top of that the story progression graphics go from photos to full movement scenarios.
The game seems simple at first, but when you realize this is not just another click and find game then you realize there is more to the world you are exploring. The items that appear in the find screen will not be simply words of the items to seek, they will be shapes of the silhouettes, and that’s just the beginning of the difficulty. Then you must take into account that the world itself will add layers to the search, essentially you will fall in love with the mystic story, the wonderful environments, and the challenge. As always G5 brought us something to talk about.
