Following a hostile encounter with the Evil Queen, your only way home is to help out the cast of familiar fairytale characters with unfamiliar problems. These inhabitants include BB Wolff - the local smarmy, estate agent and apparent master of disguise, Goldilocks, a special girl with very particular tastes and an oafish, lazy prince who is charming only by name. 

Happily Ever After is a hugely entertaining game, set over 24 levels with over 100 different puzzles.  Players are set to enjoy many hours of gameplay with challenges including hidden object, logic games, mazes, spot the differences, riddles and more.  With its bite-sized puzzles and lavish comic book visuals, Happily Ever After is perfectly suited to the iPad market.  Add to this three fun arcade style mini games, multiple Story Mode endings and a sparkling script penned by Childrens’ BBC script writer Hannah McKay, this title is sure to appeal to puzzlers and adventure game fans of all ages.
