I can't believe it was a SE!! This game was one of the best SE games to be released in quite a while! It had achievements and an extra chapter (that tied into the story)! The only thing that was missing was morphing objects! Great game! October 9, 2012
Excellent!!!! Really good game for a CE. Even had extra game play. It was a bit of a challenge. I really liked the story line. Good on them for this game. Kudos go out to them. October 9, 2012
Another good Halloween game This game is a good game to play at Halloween. The graphics were great. Only part of the game was reminded me of Halloween. The time went fast and I ran out of time with the demo. I used the hint alot, but I still liked the liked game. I would recommend this game. October 9, 2012
Fun and entertaining I played the demo, and definitely loved it. After reading the reviews saying it was short, I did opt to use a free credit, but I'm sure I won't regret it. The game play was intriguing and although it had some of the same dark and sinister good vs evil that most BFG have these days, I always was a fan of carnival/circus storylines. The graphics are pretty good and I liked the way the story flipped back and forth. October 8, 2012
Great Game I purchased this game this morning and could not stop playing until finished. Great job by the producers of this game. Great storyline - very imaginative! Hope to see more games like this one. I would recommend it to everyone that likes HOS. Thanks for all the fun!!! October 8, 2012
adorable!!! what a pretty clear crisp surprise!!! used a free coupnn and wish this game would never end!!! great color music story make more!!!! please October 8, 2012
Great Game I loved the trial, There is a lot to do in this game. The story line is scarry and very busy with everything going on. I'm off to buy. it looks to be a great game. October 8, 2012
Dark Arcana: The Carnival What a hidden gem of a Hidden Object Adventure, edgy, creepy and plain old entertaining. Susan Jones was enjoying a day at the carnival with her daughter when they decide to visit the House of Fear. Bad choice for Susan, the carney owner waits until Susan's daughter goes through the exit door and traps Susan inside! (should have seen that coming with that evil clown on the door). You are the detective assigned to the case and there's all kinds of crazy going on inside the carnival. Apparently the carney's owner Jim Gibbons killed his wife Alice Baker who was assisting him 25 years ago in his knife throwing act in 1975. Once you start snooping around you begin to see the big picture, has Jim made the devil a deal to use Susan to bring Alice back to life? The first thing you will notice are the incredible graphics, creepy takes on a whole new level, and I was amazed at how lifelike and detailed the characters were. Even though this is just a Standard Edition, there are all kinds of achievements to earn for things like no misclick or hints used on HOS and befriending the monkey. This monkey you befriend, was chained at the ankle and scared. You play an arcade claw game to retrieve a stuffed banana toy and the monkey is your pal, helping you out by retrieving items out of your reach. I found it amusing that there were objects throughout the carnival that you could interact with, none are pertinent to the game just there for amusement such as popping balloons or moving wind chimes. The mini games are really simple but really fun, almost all of the games are arcade style games, the Claw, shooting BB's at targets and, switching the scenery and characters on a carnival act until everything makes logical sense, by using directional arrows. The Hidden Object Scenes are slightly interactive list finds, mostly just clicking on items as indicated by gears, to uncover an item such as a lid or moving a blanket. If you aren't a fan of HOS (is that possible?) you can opt to play a game of Monaco which is a simple game of matching two cards with alike pictures and the remaining cards drop down or over in a match 3 type game (only it's a match 2 lol) I will tell you that the HOS are repeated twice, but not in the same place, surprise you get to enter a mirror portal to the good carnivals alter ego, the dark twisted evil carnival. Yep, dark and dreary and full of evil! I can't think of a single thing I didn't like about this game, awesome story, terrific graphics, evil clowns -everybody loves a clown-creative achievements and two dimensional games, good carnival bad carnival. The more I think about it the more I wish I got a 6 star option, enjoy! June 6, 2014
