Dark Arcana: The Carnival
Developers saved by the bell!
There is nothing novel in the story line, spooky fun fair, circus people who went astray, parallel universe...all seen before but it makes a nice change from the "orphanage" doom and gloom stories.
My only reservation is that even in Hard Mode, there is no challenge whatsoever in the mini games, so very disappointing on that level.
Just fun for the Halloween time coming ahead and for the beginners/intermediate level.

not so much
Once again I was hoping for a true carnival game, a dark, scary, great story, with real carnival games, tickets, etc. And once again it was not this, I guess it was an ok hidden object game, very easy. Story, well we have heard that one before. Please give us a true carnival game, like if you are at Atlantic City or Santa Monica Pier, but dark and evil. that would rock

Nice game, nothing new, a bit like all the other games, but enjoyed it.

Carnival of Horrors
Good graphics, repetitive minor key version of circus music, lots to do, lots going on... and after playing all but 5 minutes of the demo, I realized I really didn't care. They can all stay trapped exactly where they are. I couldn't wait to get away. Maybe exactly because there was too dang much going on -- too many puzzles, too many cut scenes, just too much everything.

I read the other reviews, and I just don't get it. I got through about half of the trial, and just couldn't do it anymore. The puzzles were so simple that I was going through them with no pleasure. I just didn't see the fun in this game. Sorry for all you who enjoyed it. Maybe I'm having a bad day. Wouldn't spend the money on this one, though.

In the beginning, it appeared to be a fun and spooky game and then it turned to evil.... yuck. Not my type of game.
