Nevertales: The Beauty Within
A gorgeous game to be immersed in, but I figured out the storyline right away so it was annoying to have the resolution so painfully spelled out at the end. Also, there's a cringe-inducing song at one point that made me embarrassed for the production team. I'm not sure who the intended audience is for this game, and I don't think they were, either. The puzzles were challenging but it was because they were not very intuitive, not because they were particularly thought-provoking. Just not the game for me, but others here seem to enjoy it.

WANTED TO LIKE THIS GAME.
Purchased after seeing all the five-star reviews, BUT, this game just didn't do it for me. Silly story; disjointed game flow and jumping from one unrelated thing to another unrelated thing made for a boring time. And, please, no more critter helpers. Uninstalled half-way through.

The gameplay was good. The visuals and the sounds were all excellent. I enjoyed the length of the game, and the story was interesting and unfolded at a decent pace. However, the ending was a massive letdown. In fact, I was so disappointed by the ending that I doubt I will purchase any other Nevertales games.

Most reviewers here seem to love this game and I'm totally baffled...
Bought the game on the strength of the reviews and was totally disappointed. The game has good sound and the graphics are very good but that's all. Neither HO scenes nor the mini-games present any challenge. If that was all I would just consider it another average HOG. What pushes this one over board is the truly atrocious storyline. It is completely absurd bordering on stupid. Lacks coherence, characters are far fetched, locations are totally disconnected, i.e. there is an astronaut in a pirate ship. I stopped playing when I landed on the moon after escaping a volcano in a tropical island. How dumb can this game get? Sorry but won''t find out, uninstalling it now!

This game starts out like a spooky mystery and rapidly turns into Alice in Wonderland. I think the talking door guys were reincarnations of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
Be sure to set your hint refill to the shortest possible as you will need it often. This is the most confusing game ever, like you're having a terrible nightmare. Not once did I know what I was doing or why. There is a cute little mechanical owl helper, so if you're not into cute little animal helpers... well, you'll have to decide for yourself. Sometimes you have to work a puzzle, but it isn't clear that it's a puzzle. I quit when I got to the talking doors, which turned out to be one of those puzzles you don't know is a puzzle. There are also puzzles disguised as HOS. Lots of up and down and back and forth and picking up inventory items you have no use for. God forbid I should have tried the CE. Any more confusion and my brains would have probably fallen out.
I seem to be the lone dissenter so far, so as always, try it. You might like it. Basically, it gave me a headache.

Silly, started out good
I thought it would be an grown-up mystery game, instead it was the typical childish fairytale. The graphics were excellent, but the plot was trite. I was disappointed and couldn't wait to finish the game.
