''Curse Of Enchantia'' is a classic point-and-click comedy [[AdventureGame adventure game]] from Core Design, better known as creators of ''TombRaider''. Now the game is probably best remembered for its often strange design ideas and nonsensical puzzles.

The story AnotherDimension of the MagicalLand of Enchantia, literally described as "ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway", where an evil witch wants to be [[OlderThanTheyLook young]] and beautiful [[ImmortalitySeeker for all eternity]], but the problem was a main ingredient in it was [[HumanResources a male child]] from [[AnotherDimension another world]]. The witch succeeded in creating a portal between Enchantia and Earth. Looking through it, she then spotted the young and helpless Brad, the player's character who just happened to come to play {{baseball}} with his sister. Excited, the witch cast the summoning spell and magically snatched him to Enchantia.

The game begins in her dungeon, from which Brad must [[PrisonBreak escape]] and then find a way kill the witch and [[TrappedInAnotherWorld get back to his own dimension]].

----
* AnachronismStew: Lots of very modern things in the otherwise {{fantasy}} world (coming from our universe too?), especially in the garbage dump stage. Enables [[MagicVersusScience magic-versus-science]] during the final showdown, such as having a {{ghost}} defeated with a [[WeaponsThatSuck vacuum cleaner]], proving once and for all that BlackMagic [[IncrediblyLamePun sucks]].
* BuriedAlive: And at one point gets [[MagicMisfire accidentally magically]] transported by a sympathic sorcerer into a coffin in an old grave.
* ForTheEvulz: Enchantia is described as being ruled by the baddest and meanest wicked witches the world or indeed an "universe has ever known" and "commiting the most terrible deeds for no reason".
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Their particular evil queen is the baddie of the game, and of EvilIsSexy kind that has [[HellishPupils hellish pupils]] ([[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing]] when casting a spell), [[FemmeFatalons long nails]] and a [[BadassCape badass cape]].
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: During the [[FinalBattle final battle]], the evil witch gets hit by her own [[MagicMissile spell]] [[AttackReflector deflected]] by an [[SpinToDeflectStuff fan]], and then also [[CoupDeGrace finished-off]] with her own [[RingOfPower magic ring]].
* IceQueen: Quite literally, as the game features also a very Ice Queen-like witch living in an [[IcePalace ice palace]]. And has an [[EjectionSeat ejection seat]] in her throne for whatever reasons.
* MalevolentArchitecture: The [[BigBad high witch]]'s castle, complete with a [[OurGargoylesRock gargoyles]], [[PortraitPaintingPeephole portrait painting peepholes]], [[SurpriseSlideStaircase surprise slide staircase]] and a [[BookcasePassage bookcase passage]] to the queen's chamber.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: Makes sense with the demise of the witch, but not really with the case of of a bandit stabbed with his own sword earlier in the game. Both of them were also finished when then they [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown were down]], which is apparently still heroic.
* SavingTheWorld: By helping to sort out Enchantia's witch infestation problem.
