Cursery: The Crooked Man and the Crooked Cat Collector's Edition 4.3 5 165 165
Enjoyable Game I thoroughly enjoyed playing the regular CE game. The game is made up of: -3 levels of difficulty (that can be changed during the game) -Jump Map -Fragmented Objects HO Scenes -Many Unique Puzzles -20 Morphing Objects -Notes to Collect -Excellent Voice Overs -Clear/Colorful Graphics -Capability to replay Puzzles after the game is finished Those that purchase the SE version of the game will get the same ending as the CE version. The Bonus Game is a separate game called Humpty Dumpty. I personally did not care for this Bonus game because of the character's eating habits; you'll see when you play this game. Overall, I recommend this game and like I stated earlier, enjoyed playing it. November 10, 2013
Cursery is Worthy of Ten Stars As the story begins you and your sister are traveling through the forest in a coach and she is telling you that several young women have been kidnapped while traveling on this very same road. Suddenly a wild cat stops your journey and your sister is kidnapped by a stranger wrapped in a dark cloud of smoke. As you seek to find your sister you come upon a lamb trapped in brambles and once you free the lamb Marianne appears to tell you the story of the crooked man. In order to save your sister, you must defeat the crooked man and this is where your exciting adventure begins. The graphics are exceptional as we would expect from Blue Tea Games. The artwork is stunning and gorgeous AND not as glaringly busy as they were in one previous game from this developer. The sound package is also another plus and I found it to be top-notch in every way. I was hooked on the Dark Parables games years ago and I have to say that Blue Tea Games has a way of doing sequels that are consistently good and never worn out. Shortly after beginning the game and as a reward for saving her little lamb, Marianne will appear and give you a magical, interactive map. Apparently, there are certain times that the map will not allow you to transport but that is intentional and the SG explains why this happens. One of the things I noticed early on in the game is that there seem to be fewer FROGs and far more puzzles which is something I love. The puzzles are great and seem a bit different than the standard fare we have come to expect. Some of the puzzles are more difficult than I expected and I found the first one to be a challenge. In my experience, games generally start out with the puzzles being simple and progress in difficulty as the game moves forward, but with Cursery we get a tricky puzzle minutes into the game, which indicates that we probably have a game that is a bit more challenging than usual. There are twenty cursed or morphing objects to find throughout the game and finding them causes the hint meter to refill more quickly. We have collectibles to find and if they are set up like the collectibles in the other Dark Parables games finding them will unlock portions of the story. As we move through the game we can earn an assortment of achievements, which is something many of you will like. The remainder of the CE content is standard fare and mostly stuff I don't care about with the exception of the integrated strategy guide. Since this is a Blue Tea game with gorgeous artwork, I may actually use one of the wallpapers. Cursery: The Crooked Man and The Crooked Cat is an outstanding game, and I would give it ten-stars if that was possible. From the beginning of the game there is something subtle that reminds me of the Red Riding Hood Sisters ? one of my favorite games from Blue Tea. Since I had played the beta for this game it was an instant purchase for me and I highly recommend the game but, as always, please try it for yourself to see if you agree. Congratulations to the team at Blue Tea Games for another exceptional Dark Parables game. November 9, 2013
INCREDIBLY ADVENTUROUS AND CHALLENGING Incredibly beautiful landscapes and creative, unique and very challenging puzzles and mini-games. Instructions are generally in the form of riddles and required thought on how to interpret the instructions. The many, many puzzles are a lot of fun even though, as a very experienced gamer, I had to play around with them quite a bit. Not that easy to solve. Very light on the HOS, which are very detailed and lovely FRAG. Music is lively and apropros to the scenes, but I think they could have played "The Crooked Little Man and his Crooked Little Cat" song somewhere. Voice overs are extremely pleasant to listen to. Scenes are very busy with a lot of activity to do. Map helps and the hint button works well, though I didn't use them much. Instead, I clicked on everything and read the descriptions and comments at the top of the screen because your clues will be from those descriptions (unless you want to use the SG). There are morphing objects, which seem harder to find than usual, because your eyes are filled with the busy and spectacular environments. Game is very well-thought out and gameplay can become quite complicated. Should be several hour of play for most people. I can't even imagine the fast clickers playing it in a very short time. An enchanting game and a must-buy within 5 minutes. November 9, 2013
SCARY... SCARY TALE BASED ON THE FULL GAME I love all the stories from this developer... including this one... but this one is quiet scary one.... where is no really hope for the characters story line like always based on European fairy tales but enlarged with the fantasy but additional game play is quiet plain in my taste personally I'd very much enjoy just a game but not a collector edition anyway... loved this game and don't regret that I bought it. plan to play it again... November 12, 2013
I loved it!! :) When I first saw this game I was a little confused. I thought that the next Dark Parables game was going to be about Jack and the Beanstalk. But as I played the demo I quickly realized that THIS game was based on the nursery rhyme! Naturally I bought it. :) The visuals are stunning,the storyline was fascinating but sad.And the music was beautiful. I found myself humming Cheryl's theme,too! lol. I hope this game means that a new series is being made based on the nursery rhymes. All the extras such as achivements,morphing objects and wallpapers and mini-movie gallery were also wonderful. I just wish that they had included a wallpaper of the Crooked Man and his Crooked Cat,as well. :\ Speaking of the Crooked Cat...wasn't he just awesome? I stayed up all night playing this game.I haven't played the bonus game yet because I have to get some sleep. :) November 11, 2013
Cursery:The crooked man and croked cat Excellent game, you have hogs that are fragmented so find all the fragments to put together the object to be used in the game, You are trying to find and rescue the young girls that go missing, the crooked man appears to change to a cat, very mysterious, the puzzles are good not too hard to do, graphics are very good, the music is good, I could not fault this game, to this point played about 1 hour, scenes are very pleasant to look at, you have the usual choices of easy or hard. The vo's are written, so you don't have to have the sound on if you prefer not to. The map is a transporter , the hint will take time to refill if you skip a puzzle, but on the whole good game but Blue tea so bound to be good game. November 9, 2013
Cursery: The Crooked Man & The Crooked Cat The Crooked Man has struck! From the music to the puzzles to the art, this is Blue Tea's best chronicle so far! The Crooked Man's fiancee died about 100 years ago from an accident, and YOU are the only one who can save the victims. ~3 hours of gameplay ~6 chapters plus Bonus game ~Humpty Dumpty strikes again! ~What is "Cursery?" ~20 cursed morphing objects ~Bonus rhyme for never skipping a puzzle ~Many achievements Best game ever, finished about 5 times!!!

Crooked? Not this game This review is based on the free trial of the Collector's Edition. The storyline is quite good, as are the graphics. The HO scenes are different in that instead of a written list of objects to find, you have little pictures, which helps. There are a LOT of puzzles, more than your average HO in my opinion which only adds to the gameplay. I have not tried the bonus game, so I can't comment on that. The best part of the game for me is the other bonus content. You collect trophies and gain achievements, which I really like in a game - it gives you a set of goals to add to the completion. The puzzles may be too easy for some, but I rather enjoyed them. I like a bit of a challenge, but not so challenging you want to pull your hair out. Another good part is that the HO scenes & many of the puzzles are all intertwined into the storyline. Overall, a great game. November 10, 2013
Another Beautiful Game from Blue Tea! A lovely game reminiscent of the Dark Parable series. Gorgeous graphics, colors superb, music tasteful and wonderful characters, not much to dislike about this one. As the story goes, we hear that young girls of a certain age are disappearing and a crooked man and his crooked cat are the suspects. It seems the crooked man was once engaged but due to certain circumstances lost his fiance. His total devastation at his loss sends him on a quest to find her, and in so doing he kidnaps young girls of the same age in his attempt get her back. The HO scenes are similar to the parable games which I have always found delightful, mini games are not too difficult but different with a riddle aspect to them, making them more interesting and fun. The map helps you move from place to place as there is a lot of back and forth at times. There are 20 morphing objects to find as well. This CE version offers a bonus game play chapter about Humpty Dumpty's curse and also bonus puzzles. You can choose the CE version or wait for the SE, either way it will be an entertaining acquisition. For me it now tops my list of favorites. Enjoy!! November 9, 2013
Another Excellent Game from Blue Tea Devs Played the demo and had to have this game to continue the adventure. Graphics are excellent as always from this dev, music moves along with the scenes, storyline is good. It's a fractional HOS, mini games are not hard but a fun challenge although right now I am stuck in the dungeon type prison and have to figure out the mini game to get out. I'm playing on the hardest of three modes, this mode shows no hints, no skips etc. so yikes!! For me so far this has been a very fun game. November 9, 2013
