Unfinished Tales: Illicit Love
Way too sappy!
I wish BF would rate their games for Children/Young Adults/Adults etcetera. It would make life easier. I could not get through ten minutes.

Review of Completed Game...
I love elephant games and although I enjoyed this one, I don't think its one of their best games. Its more of a filler game, not as long as their previous offerings and kind of a lackluster story in my opinion. It has 3 modes casual, advanced, hardcore. I played on advanced. It has the usual things I love about elephant. Beautiful graphics, hidden object scenes you only play once, mini games that are medium difficulty. Some are easier than others but you can usually figure them out and they aren't tedious.
Where this game fell apart for me was the storyline because it was oh so corny. You are Thumbelina and she's small, the size of a thumb so in some areas you can't reach things and need to grow magic spells to get to higher elevations like growing mushrooms however sometimes it doesn't seem like you are small when you can pick up rakes that are huge and shovels in waterfalls you would drown in being so small. Kind of like an Alice in Wonderland type feel. There are a lot of different kinds of creatures and people you associate with including pirates, wizards, talking animals. There are voiceovers but its just a person standing there with a voice bubble, no actual lips moving.
I thought this game was fun but the corniness of the plot and the fact halfway through it got a little illogical and I had to press the hint button a lot which I never do, made it not as fun as some others. I give this a 3.5 but rounded to a 4. I do recommend this game and there IS an ENDING in the SE.

Hated to see it end..
It was basically watching a fairy tale... It was like a Disney movie, only much better. The storytelling falls within the conventions of the fairy tale, with the idea of a quest to win the prince or princess, with magic, with strange helpful strangers to whom one must do nice things in order to get help (the idea that "kindness pays" which underpins most such tales. And the gorgeous settings! One wants to open doors to see what next gorgeous view is next.... and that's why I am sad when it ends...
The level of challenge is OK... While there are games that I play for the challenge, for this one, I just wanted to the story to go on, so if I did not solve it in two tries I pushed the skip button with no guilt. Other gamers might no agree... To each his own.

Loved and Hated
Played full SE. Graphics were beautiful, lots of puzzles, Elephant Games high quality, long, fairy tale story was fun although seen before, I liked the personalities, pirates, animals, more...
What I didn't like is the flow, I constantly asked for a hint cause I didn't know where to go next, clues didn't make sense, some magical things were just that, no reason just a thing to put somewhere.
Still had fun playing it.

Very pretty to look at
So, yes, the graphics were very very amazing. The seasons were magnificent. Three choices of difficulty available. Not many HOS which I was very happy about. Most of the mini games/puzzles, made no sense to me at all. The background music was very nice. I felt totally overwhelmed by the game. Not the difficulty of it, just so much "stuff" placed all over. Objects needed to be put in the exact spot for them to work. This one did nothing for me. Uninstalled it.

Very colorful Graphics
Beautiful Colorful Graphics. - They make any game more fun. Not too many HOGS and what there are - you don't have too many to find and fun with all the beautiful colors.
-- Even with the bad evil 'witch' - the game is not so gloomy - because of the Beautiful Colorful Graphics.
I have only played part of the way, and am enjoying it. Again, the beautiful colorful graphics really makes all the difference. Plus not a HOG everytime you turn around. But when you do have a HOG, there aren't so many you have to find and it all makes sense.
It does make me 'think' as to where do I go next - but if I'm really in a bind - I just use Hint #'cause I really hate to wander around# Also so far, I'm not collecting too many objects at once. When I have had a row of 'em, I can quickly use them. That way I don't forget what I have collected.

A Thumbelina Fairy Tale Treasure
I loved, loved loved this game! I was put off by the name and didn't download it for quite awhile until I read some other reviews and realized this was a fairy tale game with Thumbelina in it! Great adventure game; even the HO's were fantastic because they were interactive and some even had little mini games within them. Loved the little animal characters, the hedgehog, parrot, fox etc. Loved the storyline and the music was good too. The only thing I really didn't like was the hint button. In most games the hint button will do just that.. give you a hint. If you hit this hint button it tells you exactly where to go and what to do there :( I do like the map though. It will show you each area and if the button on the area is blue then you know there are things that are left to be done in that area, and if you click the button it will take you to that area. Please Elephant games give me more, more more like this!

Oh the Prince is in trouble now!
A fairytale with Thumbilina, a Prince, a scorned witch (of course) beautiful graphics with crispness and bright colors, puppies, kittens and strange creatures! What more could you want? There aren't enought HO's for my taste but they are well done and the puzzles do take a little time to work out but they aren't impossible. I did like the map feature that allowed you to travel to any of the explored area's quickly, but the hint system is vague. This game has a good story and an apparent sense of humor as Thumbilina comments on her adventure.
