Scarytales: All Hail King Mongo
Not much to it
Storyline is a little tired---graphics are not very good...HO's are good--some items a little hard to find, but ok...Mini games aren't very trying...Hint button ok...Too many other great HO's and adventure games out there to waste time with this one, sorry :(

Good, but really short
Loved everything about the game, except the length: 2 hours casual, and I am a slow player.
Great visuals and characters
No music, just sounds of birds and nature
Puzzles good, medium skip
Would recommend only for a daily splash, not as an SE

A good feeling playing the demo I had a free coupon so I bought it. Even if the game is pleasant it's really too short.

Trite tale, not challenging
Lame compared to most. It was too predictable and rather boring.

Just An OK Game!!
Easy little game for a rainy afternoon and nothing better to do. Graphics are clear and sound is very good. Princess trying to take back the kingdom from her brother!! Hint recharges quickly and HOS's easy. Minigames easy except the one in the king's bedroom I flatly refused to spend my time on so skipped it!! Worth getting very cheap or use free coupon. Just played the demo and quite frankly will not be purchasing but am sure that some people may find it a good filler.

Short, But Not Too Sweet....
Wow, did I whip through this one...took just over an hour. I liked the other two games that were similar to this from the developer; good to play when you're not in a mood to get too involved in a game.
The names were too silly...wasn't Mongo that big goop in Blazing Saddles? "Mongo wants a better game." lol
I had high hopes; but it was super short, and you ended up playing the same locations, which were few. The graphics were ok, HOS very easy, puzzles ok, nothing new or too challenging.
I did have a glitch on one location where the location itself was blacked out; could still see the inventory, and magnifying glasses on the screen, so I was able to blunder my way through it by trial and error.
The other reviewers do a more indepth look at storyline and all that. I just want to say, glad I used a free code...just not enough 'oomfph' for me.

REVIEW OF COMPLETED GAME
After waiting 4.30 hrs for this to download, I finished it in 2 hrs. Needless to say I am somewhat peeved. It did not cost me anything or I would be more than just peeved. 2 hrs is really poor.
This game is pure simplicity itself. I could have used a WT for Strangestone more than a few times, but for this, it is completely superfluous. The puzzles are child's play. The HOS are clear and easy. The graphics are not great but perfectly acceptable. The story is very straightforward. The cut scenes are well done and quick. Navigation is perfect. No map or diary, but equally as unnecessary as the WT. Music is fine.
Why do so many devs think that everyone can play chess? It mystifies me when they include a chess game and expect everyone to achieve the object by solving the chess problem. There is nothing new here and definitely no wow factors. The tree child was a nice touch, but otherwise, a pretty bland and childish game.
If you have a pcc that needs to be used pretty quick, you can have a pleasant enough couple of hours, but as to laying out cash for this, forget about it.
Sorry devs. If this is your first effort, you made the game very well, without lagging or glitches, but it is too short and ridiculously easy.

Good for a beginner!
Not a bad little game. Nice graphics and game play. Did not care for the click penalty notices...very annoying and really not necessary. Just make the cursor fade or spin or something simple.
Also didn't care for the hint system. Fairly long recovery time, compared to most other games and I especially didn't like to "read" my way through a game.
HOGs were a bit messy and some items very hard to see (blended colors). Don't remember seeing an orange sword before, but maybe it was suppose to look rusty. Games not difficult but a couple did take a bit of thought.
This would be a nice game for a beginner, or someone who just wants to float through a day without any excitement. This game did not seem challenging to me, nor did it make me want to run out and buy it. Just didn't strike my fancy today.
As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find it quite enjoyable. Thanks for the reviews.
