Another good Dark Parables game. Taking a twist on the story of Snow White - or rather, filling in on what happened after 'Happily Ever After', Snow Queen is focused on rescueing children from the character the game is named for. This involves solving various puzzles and using objects created in FROG scenes. These scenes run the gamut, with many easy-to-find items and then a few fiendishly difficult, well camoflaged ones. The puzzles are all relatively simple and very hard to go wrong on.
The scenery is quite pretty and the text has VO, but the music was a little on the bland side. Didn't detract any from the gameplay though. You get a fun little buzz from the storyline too, as collected objects give you access to backstory.
All up a good game, though I played it through unusally quickly for a BFGame, a little under two hours. It seemed to me obvious at all times where to go or what to do, as the map is very helpful, though not interactive so you must backtrack manually.
It's a reccomend from me for fans of the Dark Parables Series, but I'm not sure it would really stand out as a single, stand-alone game. If you haven't played the others, or don't want to invest in a short game, definitely try the demo.

I enjoyed this as much as the first two in this series.Although the graphics lacked luster as compared with other new games.There is a map which is of great help when going back and forth between scenes..The fragmented object scenes were dark and not very well outlined.Some mini-games were frustrating.There is a hint button that comes in handy in the HO scenes.There are morphing objects to find and there is plenty to do in this lengthly game.
The music fit the game and this one has a good storyline behind it.The voice-overs were well done.A good game without the gory details.

A Unique Twist on The Hidden Object Game
This has got to be one of the most unique games I've ever played. It's quite fun. Here are my thoughts:
How finding the hidden objects resulted in an item being made
Quick hint recharge
The click penalty had no effect
One of the most unique hidden object games
Some of the next moves in the game were not obvious and I had to use hints
Using the Skip button disabled the Hint button for 5 minutes. I get we should have SOME penalty, but FIVE MINUTES without a Hint button!? That's way too much
When I used a hint in a place where I could do nothing, instead of pointing an arrow to where I needed to go, like some games, it just said "There is nothing I can do here"
My demo ran out wit 12 minutes left of my free trial, giving me the indication the game was a quick one
Overall, this is quite an enjoyable game. With it's thrilling storyline and unique twists, it's definitely worth buying.

Dark parable series
I love these games. Have played them at least 3 times. Will probably play them again. I am looking forward to more Dark parable games. The game play is interesting and sometimes a challenge. When can we expect the next installment?

I didn't enjoy this game as much as the previous two dark parables but still a very good game.

The graphics are gorgeous in this game, but I found the storyline a bit predictable, and there seemed to be a lot of constructing of objects to do not very much. Meh. There was virtually no challenge in the HOS - in fact, the main level of challenge seemed to be wandering around to find the next HOS.
There were areas/themes which could have been explored more - perhaps this happened in the collector's edition? (I honestly didn't enjoy the game enough to buy it and find out)
And seriously, what was with that frog?
