Had to Review this One! I never review games but after just completing Curse of the Nightingale I had to put in my two cents worth. I am not a huge fan of HOGs as most of you are but I do enjoy looking for fragments to complete an object. I get tired of looking for 12 or so objects in a HOG only to really need one of those objects. With a FROG you feel like you're not wasting your time and the fragments in this game were stand out enough to see - I think I only resorted to the "hint" button twice. Nuff said about that. The game itself is wonderful, intriguing and very well made. Graphics were outstanding and the music low key enough to not grate on the nerves. I figured out right from the get go who the "crazy big guy" actually was but I must say the rest of the story had me guessing. Even though the story plays out in a way that pretty much tells you what happened there are some clues that I now look back on that should have pointed me in the right direction. Good ending - no cliffhanger or "what was that?!!" as in some games I've played. This is the first "object" game that I want to turn around and play again if only to find the 20 morphing objects. I didn't find my first one until well into the middle of the game and then drove myself crazy staring at the screen in each area I entered trying to see the other ones. I did succeed in finding 15 before the game ended so that's a big replayable factor for me. I will say that I cannot see having to look for "morphing" objects during an entire game instead of frags or objects as I hear is the case in Escape from Ravenhurst. Would probably have to put me in a loony bin before game was over - lol! To wrap it up, this was a great game, good replay if only to get all the morphing objects and not-too-hard puzzles, repetitive yes, but I'm not really into puzzles as some are so it was nice to play one that I didn't feel like I was pulling my hair out over. And I forgot to mention this game is LONG - at least 6+ hours of fairly continuous play over two days. There were several times I thought I was close to the end only to end up having more gameplay - very good length for your money. Also got this on BF's New Year sale for $4.99 and if it ever comes out as a DD for $2.99 grab it - it would be worth full price to me. If you haven't played "Curse" I highly recommend it - I don't think you'll be disappointed. January 9, 2012
very nice FROG This is one of my favourite games, and I still like it after re-playing it several times. If you like BlueTeaGames, then you will like this one - it is a lot like the "Dark Parables"-Games, except that the story line doesn't refer to a fairy tale. The sound and the visuals in this game are very nice - the music supports the atmosphere without being annoying, and all of the scenes are beautifully drawn. The clarity of the scenes is not as good in the "visions" and video parts; however, the search scenes are all crystal clear and very good. You have to find LOTS of fragmented objects - you see how the fragment looks, and you have to track them down. They are well hidden in the scenes, and so it is a good level of challenge. The mini-games are a nice change from the usual mini games in these kinds of games - I enjoyed them, although there is a certain repetition factor. They can be skipped, though. You have unlimited hints, and the hint button recharges quickly. You also get a map - however, the map only indicated scenes in which you need to complete a FROG-scene, and doesn't indicate where you just need to pick up something or complete something. This is at times unfortunate and requires a good memory on behalf of the player. If you don't know what to do with an object, you can get through the hint button a vision - this is only limited helpful, though, because it can easily refer to a part of the theatre you didn't unlock yet. There are "cursed objects" you can find to get extra points. The only weakness in my opinion is that there is only one mode of difficulty. Great game - if you like fragmented object games, this is definitifely a go. Good length, too. March 23, 2012
Another great BTG game If you liked the Dark Parables games, this one is in the same style. To begin the graphics are beautiful, the storyline is a little weak, the music ok, the HOs are above average (fragmented objects), and the puzzles average but fun. There are also 30 or so morph items which I think adds a layer of fun to the game. There is also a map which is somewhat helpful. So why a 5 rating? The graphics and game play are why I give this a 5. This is a relaxing, enjoyable game. It is not so difficult as to become frustrating and not so easy as to become boring. I like that the game play offers a little bit different style to other HOs. A good way to end a long day. Game play is about 4 to 5 hours I think (didn't really pay attention to that). I recommend this game. January 7, 2012
Visually stunning! This is from Blue Tea Games and lives up to, and maybe exceeds their reputation for creating visually stunning graphical stories. Pure eye candy! Add to that a truly interesting story and you have a winner here. I confess, I was on the fence between four stars and five on this one, if it were possible to mark it 4 1/2, I would have. Where, you might ask, did this masterpiece fall down? I found the set, beautiful at every turn, to be quite large and complicated. Sometimes I knew where I was and knew where I wanted to go but couldn't remember how to get there. I do feel that the maps were not well done and did not help clarify my route. In addition, the help button gave no directional assistance. All in all, very small flaws in an otherwise superb game! January 26, 2014
Must Love FROGs In this game, you explore a deteriorated old theater and glimpse ghostly visions of its glamorous heyday. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but there is very little variety to the puzzles: it's just one Fragmented Object Scene after another with very few other types of minigames. If you like FROGs, you'll probably love this one. SPOILER for a story plot hole, though... Unless I missed something, you never find out what happened to the relative who summoned you there! That seemed like a pretty large oversight in the writing. Maybe if you buy the Collector's Edition, you find out in the bonus chapter, but it seemed weird that it wasn't mentioned in the main game.

Long game, puzzle instructions could have been clearer First of all the graphics are just brilliant. Lots of separate locations, great storyline, not too much back tracking, and the game lasts a long time. Some puzzles could have had clearer instructions, the hidden object scenes were pretty easy, and the whole thing was a joy to play from start to finish. Loved the music too. April 8, 2012
Blue Tea games does it again Blue Tea games is the best! I guarantee you will love this game! It is HO and puzzle and the graphics are to die for. But get the collector edition as there are tons of extra goodies. Be sure to check out all the Dark Parables games and play them in order. They rock as well. Get the collectors edition for all Blue Tea games. It is worth it. There are hours of extra game-play on the CO's. January 6, 2012
ANOTHER OUTSTANDING BLUE TEA GAMES HOG ADVENTURE!!! Very creative story line unfolds as you have received a golden ticket for a Show at "The Nightingale" Theatre" which burned forty years prior. Your Grandfather was the Owner/Manager and, somehow, sent you this Golden Show Ticket as he has been "missing" since being blamed for the fire all those many year ago. Explore the colorful, mysterious, exciting surroundings and learn more about the the Theater's Performing Stars and the fire. When you don't think Blue Tea Games can develop another awesome game, think again while playing "Macabre Mysteries: Curse of the Nightingale"!! Enjoy! -Mama Mia- April 24, 2012
Awesome Game!!! Originally not interested and then after playing the demo I liked it. After playing the game for what seemed an eternity, I LOVED IT! Great story, terrific puzzles, HARD FROGs and incredibly long game play. A home run for BF and Blue Tea games. I'm getting Dark Parables, no question now. December 11, 2011
nightengale This was a joy to play. Also it was unique in content. Have more sales!! February 2, 2012
