I got an early look at this - it's a solid, fairly involved HOG with a few more-difficult-to-figure-out puzzles. Nice graphics, but really needs a zoom capability on the iPad version especially as a chunk of playing space is taken by the list of objects and the bottom Key and Reveal section. Some of the objects are pretty small, and it can be end up being a little frustrating.

You learn spells through a "spot the difference" kind of scene and then need to use the spells in certain scenes to uncover hidden objects or solve puzzles. You also need to find keys in certain scenes that you collect and then unlock chests in the Safe Haven, to eventually obtain a powerful wand (I haven't gotten quite there yet).

You can choose a shorter game or a longer one... the long one is definitely pretty long, so there is a ton of gameplay, with a lot of places to visit and search. Overall, a solid HOG/puzzle game, just really hope zoom capability will be added.
