Grim Tales: The Wishes
Sorry I paid for this game
I thought this game looked as though it would be a fun one, but it turned out to be one that took me from place to place in search of the proverbial "keys" to open up chests, portals, etc., in order to take me to even more places in search of more keys. The puzzles were not interesting, and the storyline turned out too be to dark for my interest. (demons, for Pete's sake...so morbid) There's enough problems in this world, than for me to purchase a game that has even more. I want to have fun...How 'bout it, Big Fish? Let's have some FUN, lighthearted games, please, and leave the demons out! : )

Hidden object Game
I found the game rather tiresome. Too much up and down the stairs, through tunnels and swamps. It's a good game if you don't have anything else to do for awhile.

Grim tales: The wishes for a better game.
The game started with a story of a kid being possessed by some evil creature. He tells his mom it's his fault and he will deal with it you are there somehow, a car drives away, the kid is bye bye, evil shadow took him, Great! I didn't like him anyway...seriously, I felt like what the heck! Yet another game where I'm suppose to save a kid and I really don't care, not for him and not for what will happen with the plot next, just give me some HO scenes and puzzles and who cares for the boring storyline! The game started with bunch of finding items but no HO scenes yet. Took some time before the first scene started. The whole feel of this game was off for me right from the start. The little music in the game is annoying and during HO scenes there's a blessed silence.
On the plus side, graphics are OK, but by itself it doesn't really save the game. Flower looking hint is good, tells you what you need to do next, so I guess it makes this game not that difficult.
I wasn't impressed and few minutes into this grim game I uninstalled it.

Grim Tales: The Wishes
I wish this game was less demanding that you place an item on the exact spot. I mean the exact spot without a fraction of a millimeter off. There is not even a visual as to the exact spot. Take the rope on the window for example. I spent ten minutes on this without success and will now cease playing the game. I wasted time on items before that one but this is the last bit of my time that I will waste on this game. There are other games. I am sorry I bought this one.

After my hour trial, I had a long list of places that needed items, and I had many items in my inventory that I did not know where to place :o There was lots of backtracking, too. This game is a sleeper for me. The lack of sound during most of the hour did not help create the mood of urgency to help the boy. In fact after he is taken, you are running around doing anything, but go to his aid, hmmm. Not a buy for me.

Buy if you are about three years of age!!!
A potentially good game spoiled by the answers to the puzzles being continually thrown in your face. Another 'let's hold your hand little child' type of game!

Save your money
I made a big mistake and bought the CE of this game based on the five stars they got. It had good graphics but thats it. You will have more fun flushing your money down the toilet. The same folks that are giving this high ratings did so also for the CE. Do they work for the company?

I didn't care what happened half way through the game
I've bought and played some great games from BigFish and I should do them justice by writing a review.But this game begged for a review..I found it exhausting, too much back and forth. It seemed like you were searching for items for the sake of searching for items. It just wore on me as time went on. I had to finish it just so that I wouldn't waste my money. I stopped caring for the characters long into the story. After having to find the most minute item, a quick and dirty ending. Don't waste you time.
