Hocus without the pocus.

The Good

The graphics were very clean and moved smoothly. The controls were simple and have a one mintute learning curve. The gameplay is ok although...

The Bad

...it was really all too easy. The sound effects and music leave something to be desired. I really wanted to like this game, I played through, but found that it was the same old thing over and over again with minor changes in scenery.

The Bottom Line

Hocus Pocus is fun for about a half-hour but quickly loses what charm it might have had.
