Grim Tales: Bloody Mary
The dark mood of the game , the haunting sounds, the eerie and beautiful graphics and chilling special animated effects make this a great game for people who like horror based adventures. The game does a great job of creating and atmosphere that makes you want to go further and further into it, while also sending a chill down your spine.
The game has a fully interactive map that allows you to jump from one location to another location, as long as you have already been to that particular location. It also shows where there are still tasks that need to be completed so that you can see where you need to go if you're not sure what to do next.
The hidden object scenes have some random animation to them and are clear, detailed and comfortable to search with well defined objects to locate. You should be able to complete most of them within a few minutes each. The puzzles range from moderate to easy in difficulty.
A few rooms/locations in the game might require very careful searching in order to find the parts of the scene where you need to act. For example, the children's bedroom upstairs is impossible to fully access until you fix the fuse box on the wall in that room , to restore light to the room. I only happened upon it accidentally by randomly clicking around in the near darkness there. And in the garden off of the main room in the house you need to move your mouse carefully to locate the dirt patch with a foot print on it. In other words be sure to very thoroughly and very carefully inspect each scene for actionable areas.
While this game is a lot of fun, I would rate this a moderately difficult adventure, I recommend having some previous experience completing hidden object adventures before trying this one.

Another good game in the Grim Tales series
I have played all the games in the Grim Tales series and this one is a worthy addition to the series. The graphics are beautiful and the storyline is emotionally rewarding. The little animals are cute, the monsters are scary and the mirror world is truly unique. I like the way there is animation in almost every scene. The only thing I would have changed is that the puzzles are a little too easy. If you liked the other Grim Tales games, you won't be disappointed in this one.

Really creepy and cool!
I bought this game on a whim and I have to say that I really like it! I highly recommend playing it with the sound on just because the music is so creepy that it really sets the mood for the game!.The graphics are also really cool and pretty interesting. They remind me a little bit of Tim Burton movies. Dark yet whimsical. I didn't find this game particularly challenging so I think it would be good if you are fairly new to hidden object games. The only thing that bothered me was that it seemed to move a little slow. I don't know if it was my computer or what but I haven't had that problem with any other game. But I got used to it as I continued to play and it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. Highly recommend!

Loved the "Creepy" Factor
Storyline was dark, which I liked. Good visuals as always. One of my favorites.

If you like CREEPY, this is it!
Definitely a creepy atmosphere! Loved the story line of Bloody Mary in the mirrors! You're summoned to an old dark mansion that has recently been made into a boarding school to save your niece. Be careful, Mary and her "student helpers" are just around the corner. Lots of fun.

The graphics in this game are great! The storyline was good, the puzzles were medium difficulty, the sound effects were perfect (not annoying), and the amount of scenes you had to get through to the end was well worth it. Would recommend this. Great buy for $2.99.

Just completing the game and want to congratulate you on the creativity, challenge, visuals, and fun Elephant developed in GrimmTales: Bloody Mary. Thank you for providing one of the greatest games I have bought on Big Fish.

Creepiest Game Ever
I understand how this game won the "Creepiest" title for 2013; I could not finish it. Maybe one day I'll start early with lots of people around; more than just playing you could feel this game, I did want to get to sleep at night. When I grow up some more, I'll finish it...I'll recommend it for those who love creepy, but for those who just love Grim Tales, you might want to skip this one too

Great story well told.
The Grim Tales series is a topnotch one and this one is in their number. If anything there is a narrative tightening, and a better control of the game flow. There is the elephant trademark of the cute animal helper (a chipmunk) and minigames and HOS that stay in the mood of the story.

Lots of fun
Very balanced game for my level. The graphics were first rate, the storyline was interesting and logical, and the puzzles were fun. I never felt like I was totally lost.
