Weird Park: Scary Tales
Another good Weird Park
Despite my irritation that the developers released this with a MAJOR flaw that took a week for a fix, I have to say this is a pretty good creepy game. Not at all cutesy fairy tale, and not for kids. Very heavy on HOS with some minigames, a few that are different. Played on the hard mode and the HOS scenes actually didn't have sparkles!! Unfortunately there is no way to turn off the voiceovers, so I made good use of my mute button.
A minor complaint, I am really tired of saving children (and having to mute their annoying little voices) in these games. Can't we save aliens or something?

LONG AND ENTERTAINING
This was a really great game. Long with really beautiful graphics. I liked how each child/ doll (of 9) had it's own story. Alladin, Cinderella etc. all while trying to rescue them from the creepy clown and his equally creepy puppet jester. Bright with loads of color this game held your interest all the way through. I played in advanced and soon figured out that when you found an HO scene you should finish it, do a few other tasks and then come back to it as it would have reloaded and be ready for another go. This was helpful since there are no sparkles and little help finding HO scenes in advanced. This developer is pretty reliable for length and a good mix of game play, HO scenes and puzzles and this was no exception. Very enjoyable and I bought it with a free game voucher. Not bad!! It was a voucher well spent.

Really liked it!
I played the first Weird Park and liked it, so I was happy that the sequel arrived. I think it is better than the first one and would highly recommend it.

HIDDEN OBJECT FOR SURE
Disclaimer: I played for 13 minutes only... in that time I completed 4 Hog scenes.. 2 of which was the back trunk of the wrecked car.... BORING.. I completely forgot what the story-line was about.
The clown is super cute. But, not enough to overlook so many HOS in the first part of the game. Had to stop playing.
If you love Hidden Object scenes.. then I highly recommend this game.
I do recommend everybody to try it.. has beautiful graphics and it may get better.

good adventure HOG
I didn't mind this game, and would of purchased it, except for one thing.
The inventory window took a bit to open, and i get frustrated with simple things like that :D so if you don't mind that..buy it :-)

Work out the bugs!
Okay, I have the first WP game and thoroughly enjoyed it, fruit cake clown and all. I almost bought this one without demoing first, but glad I didn't. It just doesn't play that well (surprising for this dev#. Very nice graphics and music. HOGs okay, although a whole lot of them and very simple games. Hint system nice, except I didn't care for the bear blowing up the balloon. You can't tell from watching, how much longer you have before it's completely blown up.
I never use the game cursor because they are always too big and clunky looking. I much prefer the standard arrow, so always click that off. However, the standard cursor doesn't work well in this one at all. It wouldn't pick up items and was extremely frustrating. Seemed to work better when I went back to the custom cursor #still don't like them#.
I really wanted to get this game, especially with the special today, but I may think on it a bit first. This is the second game in a week that has given me problems and I rarely have difficulty with any of the games. This one goes in my puddle for now #they only go in the pond with I buy them).
As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this works great for you. Thanks for the reviews.

Weird Park: Scary Tales
This game was quite delightful. At times, it was somewhat difficult to determine what should be done next. The "glass" was the most unique challenge. I did have to use the "walkthrough" to figure out how it should be used, but once I did that, I was able to get to the end with no problem.
This game was fun and I do recommend it to those who want to have fun.

Weird: There was no Park
This game is a continuation of Broken Tune with a new main character, who - a twist that has never been done before, I'm sure - crashes his car and stumbles into the story while trying to get help. It does not continue from the bonus content of BT btw, so this makes said bonus chapter even more a chutzpah.
Back to Scary Tales: Said tales are fairy tales, in which the dolls you have met before are trapped. And of course Louis the Clown and the Joker (no longer the Norse God Loki apparently) are at large. You are supposed to rescue the dolls out of the parallel dimension.
+ graphics look much better due to filling the screen
+ videos in the gameplay well done (the few there are)
+ great game length (about 7-8 hours for me)
+ fairy tales were a nice touch
+ helpful hint system
+ diverse mini games...
o ...some of them recycled from Broken Tune (the kind, not the solution)
o previously found items are placed back into repeated HO scenes
- still lots of senseless to-and-froing (a "Scene complete" would have helped)
Bottom Line: This one is much better than its predecessor. Lame beginning, but the compact locations really help. However, if you play like me, you will much likely use the hint function a lot to check where the next step takes place.

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.
