Weird Park: Scary Tales
Another Good Installment
I really liked this one because there wasn't as much running around as in other games.When you aquired an item,you automatically knew where you would use it.The graphics were nicely done.The HO scenes were good with some interactive items as well.The background music was OK..A good sequel to the first of this series.

great story hard game
I really like the weird Park games and enjoyed the premise and idea of this but found it a bit to hard and frustrating at times. I skipped most games and things were not intuative fortunately the hint button is great and really helps tell you where to go. a map might have been nice but the hint suffices. In generaly if you like weird park you'll like this just be prepared for a more difficult, challenging game.

Nice long game!
Great game. Should play the Weird Park Broken Tune first. Nice and long is what I like with good HOs and games. I had to skip two, so I'll be playing it again. I love these games. Please make more!

I have the WP: Broken Tune but there was a problem with it that I couldn't play it. Now I'm hoping that this game works and it does, so I truly love it. For an SE, this game exceeds in everything, if only the screen is wide and there is map. this game will really be on the top. Nevertheless, the hint is useful (and so cute, too!) so I don't mind it much. Nice story, if you're afraid of clowns, the bad guy here will really give you nightmares. The voice overs are good and convincing and I truly feel scared. Definitely an enjoyable game!

Fantastic Hidden object Game,
Could not get enough, Additive
February 26, 2013
It started with a car crash, and i thought here we go again!! but how wrong i was ,the graphics are great the characters are really quirky and a bit creepy, a lot of HO games, more than i like but they are so clear and easy it isn't a problem, mini games are good too. The fairy tales idea is brilliant, so much going on there isn't time to become bored with this game. I bought the first Weird Park, it was good but this is far better, the journal is helpful as is the hint button.

Fun, long game
Great game that lasted hours. Not to hard for beginners and interesting enough for more experienced players.

Scary Park is Scary Fun
This is an excellent HOPA game.
The premise is Louis the clown and Mr. Dudley(a cute if evil puppet) has kidnapped 7 children and you must rescue them.
It starts as a car wreck and goes from there.
All the children have been turned into dolls and they are based on fairy tales such as Cinderella, Red riding Hood, Hansel and Gretal, The Tinder box , Aladdin, and Peter Pan.
Each child has their own seperate chapters, there are some back tracks but you stay within that chapter until you turn the doll back to a human so even though you are backing and forwarding you don`t have very far to go, you just stay within that chapter. Each chapter has between 4 to 8 scenes so not a lot of going back and forth.
The chapters are pretty long, as there is a lot to do, hidden object scenes had a lot of items, but very well defined so not hard to find, not very cluttered or junky. Some even have interactive items, but easy to understand what needs to be done.
The hint button recharges quickly(maybe 60 seconds) and shows what needs to be done. I hate it when you are not sure what else needs to be done in a scene and it says"there is nothing to do here" as so where do I go then? that is not the case here as the hint will give you an arrow as to where to go or what to do, some might complain that that is hand-holding, but I don`t mind as it shows where to go so you are not back-tracking to an area you don`t need to go.
The puzzles are where I would give it just a 2star rating as I had to skip a lot of them, some were pretty hard and not sure what to do, but that is just me, and the skip button recharges fast, so even though they were hard it didn`t detract from the game excitement.
I loved the "little bear Hint balloon" when it gave you the hint it popped and you could hear him blow up the balloon.
I played the whole game and even with breaks, the game is very, very long over 5hrs plus.
The music was not very intrusive and sound effects was ok, the voice of Louis the clown was menancing enough, but not bad to scare kids. I loved Mr. Dudley, even though he was evil I thought he was cute.
All-in-all a very good game, I need to find the fist one and try that one and see if it is as good as this one.
This has become my number one game now.

Great, fun game
I really enjoyed playing this looong game - very long and involved. It easily deserved five stars except for some annoying technical problems. I had difficulty getting the inventory bar to show, and sometimes the cursor didn't assume the right configuration for the action needed. Other than that, this is a top-notch game. The HOS are the usual as are the puzzles. The HINT button points you in the right direction. There isn't a map, but I think it would be confusing anyway since there is are so many scenes. The story is well told - you save kids who were turned into various fairy tale characters. VO is good. Artwork is good. Just a great game.

Clowning About in Fairytale Lands
For those people who suffer from Coulrophobia (fear of clowns, thanks Hubby for looking this up) look away now, as Louis Gauche the oversized and Mr Dudley the undersized meet up again in a devilish plot to steal children and turn them into fairy tale characters.
Yes, yawn, yawn, I know it's the usual rescue mission here, the detective that you play has to find them and turn them back into the children.
However the fun is going into the various fairytale realms that have been created for each luckless child and finding out exactly what is needed to free the children, and yes you think you've got them when Mr Dudley twirls them away and makes them disappear again.
You have two books this time, one with all the fairy stories in and one as your notebook, plus a teddy bear in the corner who blows up a balloon only to burst it when you need a hint. There were one or two tricky puzzles, however I think I persevered and only skipped one, as I was impatient to see what happened next. The fairy story realms are in the same order as the book, and you do have to free each child in turn to get into the next realm.
I do hope these evil clowns will return at least one more time. They have an odd appeal about them.
