Welcome to the Nightingale Theater. From start to Finish, classy, elegant, a mellow drama that I would play again. 20 morphing objects to look 4 as well. A nicely constructed map helps to find the missing objects. Dramatic cut scenes that help w/ the ambiance of the game. I highly recommend it.
game on gamers...

Another Blue Tea Winner!
This game is my new favorite. The story was great, the graphics were beautiful, and the music was very good. The HOS were fragment scenes and challenging but not impossible. It was spooky and scary and fun! I was disappointed that it ended. Hey Blue Tea...more like this one please.

My Favorite Game of All Time
IMO, this is the best casual game I've ever played. The graphics are breathtakingly gorgeous. The music is fitting and memorable. Unusually, the characters have depth and you care about what happens to them--you get emotionally involved as the story proceeds .Best of all, the plot makes perfect sense within the folklore/fairytale universe it creates (borrowed from the ballet Swan Lake). Unlike so many other HOGs/FROGs, the game never descends into convenient and often incoherent supernatural plot twists to keep the story going. This is the crowning work (so far) of a superb developer.

Beautiful Story and Music
Maybe it is just me, but I truly enjoyed the music in this game as well as the graphics. Yes I played it to the end as well as the bonus chapter. No there are not a lot of challenging puzzles, but I really did not mind that because sometimes games can go overboard with those and make them so hard I want to pull out my hair. This game runs along the lines of the black swan, a jealous competitor gets rid of the star and puts the blame elsewhere. It is not overly difficult to follow and for those with more experience in this genre of games might find it too easy. I love the FROG's they are my favorites to play. At least try the game and decide for yourself.

I love the story, graphics and HO's. I played so far about 400 games and still some of them amaze me.
I couldn't figure out who was the culprit until the end.

Fantastic Mystery Game!
I loved the mystery and suspense of the story. The graphics, including hidden object scenes, were spectacular! I enjoyed the choice of music -- very fitting for the various scenes. The strategy guide stayed with the story and was helpful to use. These developers set the bar high, pay attention to every detail, and provide the player with a top-of--the-line experience! There are only a few others that can match these developers! Thanks to everyone involved!

nice creepy game
Another excellent game from my favorite developer. This is supposed to be a HOG, treat it like one. A lot of people seem to be complainning about it having too many hidden object scenes, well that's why it's called a hidden object game!!
STORY: You play as the grandson of the owner of the teathre. Without giving any spoilers, i can say you have to uncover the mystery of the death of the prime ballerina. The evolution of the story in the game goes in a nice logical order, you have a lot of letters around that tell you little by little everything. You have romance, rage, jealousy, crimes, and a lot of mystery to enjoy.
GAMEPLAY: You have a journal that includes a map and a character profile. The map has no instant teleporting feature, it shows you where you are and where you have an area of interest. The journal is pretty much useless, It only stores objectives and characters. The game moves pretty easy, but there's a lot of running around. You have to keep your eyes open everywhere because some items are hidden under the carpet and in the corners. You have the option to look for morphing objects that make your hint recharge faster.
HOS&PUZZLES: YES, this game has A LOT of hidden object scenes. I personally love that, after all, the hos and adventure are the only reason I'm playing this type of games. The hos are very similar to dark parables games, you have to look for parts and make the item you need. Even if the game area is big, you still need to search in the same hos 2-3 times. The puzzles are few, but their difficulty increases as you progress in the game. Still, by the end of the game they get of medium difficulty. Skipping them will lock your hint for 5 minutes or until you find around 5 items in a hos. Also, your character has the special ability of seeing the past. using that you find various hot spots in the game that allow you to go in the past and play a hos to find other items you need.
GRAPHICS&SOUND: The professional chinese game designers from this developer did a great job again with the visual quality of the game. Lots of animations overall, cut scenes at every step, crisp colors and creepy ambient. My advice, turn the music down a little, is loud. You have everything you need to please your eyes and enjoy this game. It also offers voice overs for cut scenes and when you interract with the characters, even in the visions you have the option to click on them and make them talk.
EXTRAS: There's a character in the main game that was barely mentioned, The velvet diva. Personally I got more curious who she was. In the bonus game you become a little bit more familiar with her, but it suddenly ends and it says it will continue in the second one. You also have the videos, soundtrack, wallpapers, lots of concept art and the mini games.
It was a very entertaining game and I can't wait to play the second one. Good job devs!
