Nevertales: The Beauty Within
Great Hidden Object Game
What set this game apart is the extra steps to find the objects and that finding the objects actually had a purpose (i.e. moving them aside to find a piece of what you need.) I found it more motivating than just finding a list of random things for no apparent reason.

My favorite game!
I have many big fish games but this is by far my favorite. The storyline and variety of puzzles make it so fun to play. I've played it many times and still come back for more. It should have gotten game of the year.

Ever So Much Fun
Excellent fun. The story unfolds through a maze of portals and, like any good tale, saves the best revelation for the end. These were the best developed games I have ever encountered. Several hidden object games had multiple levels adding to the enjoyment.

Best Game of 2013
Probably the best game I have ever experienced. Something new and exciting every step of the way. A real show stopper--so much variety. Excellent! Kudos to the makers.

A "must play" game!
This game has it all: great graphics, interesting characters, a variety of puzzles and games along the way. I loved the way the creators mixed up the way the mini-games were structured and provided some nice surprises in the gameplay. I can hardly wait to see what other games they've created!

There's not a whole lot I can add to what other reviewers have said. It is a masterpiece. A very LONG masterpiece, with incredible attention to detail and a lot of very clever and different twists and turns. I don't give out many 5 star ratings these days, since there are so many very good games out there, and I think a game should be truly exceptional to warrant the highest rating. There are games that I personally liked more than this one, particularly the Weird Park games because they had that extra WOW factor and everything was logical and sensible. It spoils my enjoyment of a game when objects or tasks are thrown in that don't make sense in the context of the game.
So, while this game did not have the excitement and suspense factors that I like, I have to give it a 5 because it had so much in it and it was so well planned. It made you think, and it pretty much forced you to look over the gorgeous scenes very carefully. I always take my time when playing a game, and like to stop and admire the artwork, but even so, I missed a ton of roses and morphing objects.
I absolutely recommend this game, and would advise everyone to look at the Extras before you get too far into the game. That will give you a little heads up on what you need to look for and (if you're seriously into achievements) achieve.

Best hidden object game I've played!
I've never reviewed a game before, but felt like I had to after playing this game. I've played close to 100 hidden object games and this is the best one, by far. You won't be disappointed.

It's fun, interesting to look at, with nice plot and cool storyline... The adventuring is cool, unlike what I've seen in other games. I enjoyed the modern twist to the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast...
The scenery is gorgeous, the music is beautiful, the characters are intriguing... I really enjoyed the overall story and the ending/conclusion. Gameplay was fun and kept me interested. (I only ever stopped to rest my eyes.)

Best Game I've Ever Played
This game was so close to perfect that I feel a bit bedazzled having just finished it. The makers of this game spared no expense or time in the creation of this quality, artistic and smart game. If there is an equivalent of an Oscar for games, they should win it.
I hesitate to even offer any details of the game because you should just buy it and not waste your time reading how great I thought it was. But just in case you are not convinced, here are the things I liked the most:
-- Playing the game was like being immersed in a wonderful new fairy tale. I just couldn't get enough of it.
-- You get to totally customize your game options. For example: Do you want Sparkles? What areas do you want sparkled? Hints? None, or slow, or fast to recharge? Skip option? etc. Loved that! Should be standard in every game.
-- The game got better and better as you progress
-- The world within the game was creative and beautiful
-- Oh, the places you'll go! Every new scene was a surprise. I won't tell you the places you will visit in this game because that will spoil some of the fun, but wow! Such fun!
-- It had witty and corny moments
-- The music actually enhanced the game; scary when appropriate, heart-rending as they revealed the story.
-- Largest range puzzles types ever, even the types of HOs were hugely varied.
One note about the puzzles: The vast majority of the mini games and puzzles were very easy. A couple puzzles took more time in order to figure out the puzzle's goal, but I didn't mind because they were so unique and it added some challenge.
I've been playing games on Big Fish for several years now, and 'Nevertales: The Beauty Within' was simply the best game I have ever played. The problem is now I'm spoiled by the best. I can only hope that other game developers will aspire to this quality in the devolvement of their future games. Buy it and become spoiled, too!

One of the Best
This game is one of the best I have played. The story takes you on adventures through books; the hidden objects are varied and interactive; the mini-puzzles are good. Along the way you can collect roses and other hidden objects. If you miss them, you can go to extras and find all of them to play the hidden games.
