Another Good One from Blue Tea Games
This game shares the level of excellence attained by the "Dark Parables" series. Blue Tea Games has one of the most unique ways of fashioning hidden object puzzles - listing parts for three sub-assemblies which combine to form one complete story object when all pieces have been found. The level designs and artwork are top-notch, and the music adds to the emotional enjoyment of entering each new area. The storyline, while good, was just slightly less interesting than the games in the "Dark Parables" series, which is why I couldn't give it the full five stars. Nevertheless, this is a game that is highly enjoyable and worthy of the Blue Tea brand.

Thoroughly Enjoyed this Game
LOVE to play a leisurely game. I was immersed in this game for several hours on several days. Artwork is beautiful. I'm not usually a fan of fragmented hogs, but these are clear and meaningful; a pleasant break from the usual junk piles.
Lots of play!
Definitely worth the money to buy.

This game is beautiful. The graphics and music are outstanding. I played it twice in a row! There are many FROG scenes which I enjoyed. I've never played a FROG game and found them challenging and different. I did have to use a magnifying glass to ferret out the very well hidden ones. This game is also reeeeeally long so you get your moneys worth here.
The only part I didn't like; there were no instructions on how to play some of the mini games. There are no hints if you get stuck on what to do or where to go next. But you can drag your inventory items to the hint button and it will show you a picture of how it's used.
I highly recommend this game.

I really enjoyed this game
This game is made by Bluetea Games, and they really do make a good game. The graphics were very well done, amazingly drawn. The storyline was mysterious, and although I figured out early on who the baddie was, it didn't take away from the game play at all. The HOS were different in that instead of a list of objects to find, you had to find pieces of an object that would then be used within the game - I enjoyed this change. The puzzles weren't too difficult, and the hints were helpful without being too specific. I would highly recommend this game to all Hidden Object lovers.

One of my favorite games
Been playing Big Fish Games exclusively for many many years and I would rate this as one of my all time favorites. Wonderful graphics, good story line, ended in such a way you are satisfied. The version I played was the Collector's Edition but believe this version would be just as good. This would be well worth a credit.

Macabre Mysteries: Curse of the Nightengale
I love all the games from Blue Tea Games, and this is no exception. This one really made me think (don't like to use the walkthroughs) so I was truly challenged to figure out what came next in a lot of the scenes. The maps and book don't help very much. You have to do a lot of backtracking and remembering where things are. The artistry is something special and very detailed. The hidden object games are fairly easy, especially if you've been to that area before. But the game was a pleasant diversion on a rainy day!

Very good, but too many boring puzzles
The game is really GREAT for the gameplay and the story is awesome. Even the combination between the music-sound and the videos make this game excellent, really scary in some points. Anyway there is a thing that I didn't like: there are too too too too too many hidden-object puzzles and it makes the game a little bit frustrating because it doesn't always allow to enjoy the story, especially the extra-bonus gameplay.

I really enjoyed the art and story-line of this game! FrOG's aren't my thing, but this was ok. The mini-games were simple but different from what we usually see. A couple of complaints: too many FrOG's, the map was helpful but not interactive, and if the building is condemned why do we keep running into these random people! For the most part, it was enjoyable!

Like delving into a movie.
Intriguing storyline, good characters, a murder mystery and revenge plot line plus beautiful artwork equals a game well worth owning. Instead of the usual HOG items you have to find parts of an object (personally i dont like these kind of HOGS so its a testament to the quality of this game that it still makes it fun to play.) The puzzles are of the same type and are only a few which is a shame as i like a lot of puzzles in my games, but it really is the story in this game that drives your desire to see it through to the end. There is some backtracking esp at the end but its simple enough to remember your way around. The hint button allows you to see how you use a particular item and the map tells you where you need to go so you never really get stuck. A beautiful game which is a decent length. Definitely a solid 4 stars.
