Queen's Tales: The Beast and the Nightingale
Well worth Playing
Great little game, I played this on the demo version and was really excited to see it had been released. Lovely graphics and a story line with a twist. All in all this game is perfect to relax and spend a few hours solving.

What an enchanting fun game!!
Adults CAN love and appreciate fairytales.. Its not childish, it just depends on your taste and what a person can appreciate. Just because some of the reviewers do not appreciate this type of game is no reason to throw insults at it! Sure, creepy games are fun to, and there are PLENTY of them, after a while they get depressing so it is nice to have these other cheerful, delightful games also. The 20 bird collectibles are so cute, funny looking, and colorful it made me chuckle when I clicked on the birdhouse. What fun!!! I also love the nightingale and its pretty little musical notes. What a great adventure to look forward to after working all night. I love all the game play in these delightful stories. It is also worth it in the C.E. version. There was 8 chapters and a bonus chapter in the C.E. game. The graphics are so pretty and clear I had to take my time looking around. So nice to have a different game from all the many dark and gloomy ones. This world needs more to make us laugh. Thank you ERS for this great game. Looking forward to more of them. The HOS can be changed to a match 3 game if your tired of HOS. Lots of different puzzles too. Relaxing music. I had a great experience and a fun adventure. Its a game I will play again.

great fun game
Another good game from ERS. The hint button is good. The sound and graphics are good. The HOS are fun and easy and the puzzles are not all that hard. Little running around but as you find items you pretty much now where they go. Good fun game.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Graphics are excellent and loved the whimsical creatures. Voice overs are really great! I was so into the variations of the HOS. The puzzles were challenging but nothing brand new. Very pleased with the length of this SE. The storyline is a really great twist on this tale and kept my interest throughout the game. The only little glitch, that I learned early on, is that you must put the item or tool you need directly on the spot where the cursor spins....I spent many minutes, in the beginning, knowing the item went there but it wouldn't take it. That in itself was my first puzzle Ha!
Very pleased that I have this game....I do like the developer and they rarely disappoint.

I really enjoyed this game. The variety of hidden object puzzles was fun. It was not too difficult but kept my attention. The graphics were nice. The story was good. A thoroughly enjoyable game.

i really liked this game
played casual. low sound. you can adjust the amount of time it takes the hints and skips to recharge. adjust the levels of music and all kinds of things. i really liked this aspect. mini games not too hard but i did have to skip some. i didn't have to cheat any, but i did have to think things through a good bit. items not really hard to find. graphics are great!!!! sequel....very possibly. this was based on the beauty and the beast, with another story up to that point where there is a man in love with the princess and the evil one takes him hostage and turns him into a mindless person with magic. you are making potions off and on but not too much.

CAPTURED FROM THE BEGINNING
Classic Beauty & the Beast with a lot of twists. Your Father tries to do a good deed & it backfired. You must now make things right before midnight or your Father will die.
Along the way you confront obstacles, capture/release helpful creatures, solve puzzles, & of course, find items to help you move forward in your rescue efforts, but don't forget the evil woman trying to derail you along your path.
The sound effects, music, & graphics are all top quality This is not a "dark" atmospheric game.
I played in casual mode, since I play for pure enjoyment of games. These games are stress busters for me & if that is how you also play, then you will enjoy this game. I think young girls 8 yrs or up will enjoy this game also.
The sample game is too short.
This is a must buy for me.
I am biased in my opinion of this game being the diehard romantic I am, and Beauty & the Beast is my all time fav girls fairy tail. It is fun for my/your inner child.
I recommend this game.

Absolutely loved it!
One of the best games I have ever played. I loved the fact that there weren't many hidden object scenes but more interactive puzzles. Loved the story, the music, the graphics, everything!

GOOD-LOOKING GAME FROM ERS
Art work from ERS, beautiful, as expected. I suppose the game is targeted for other than myself as the story and characters were silly and cute. Miss the Ravenhearst games. I think we are seeing the end of casual games. All good things must end.

I'm a sucker for beauty and the beast
I loved this game! It had me captivated from the very first moment. I couldn't tell you very much about the HOSs and puzzles because I was so intrigued by the story. Usually I refuse to use hints, but somehow the integrity of solving everything myself didn't seem as important as finding out what happens next. I was impressed because the game was still a decent length (HOSs and puzzles are time fillers). I can't think of another game where your little helpers are so well developed. When the weepie showed up I literally said "aww" out loud.
I even appreciated the technical aspects of this game. I'm not picky but I'm not easily wowed either and I think the custom cursor, design of the inventory, possibility for customization, etc, was all very well done.
The things that bothered me were the cutscenes at the beginning and end of the game. The voice overs throughout the game were great on animals and mediocre on people, but in those cutscenes the queen, who turns out to be our heroine, sounds like a whiney brat. She isn't selfless or heroic, like the original Beauty. SPOILER ALERTish: this is reinforced by the fact that she chooses someone who is using her just because he has a hot bod and a castle over someone who has loved her all his life. Nice guys are supposed to win in fantasy. This really bothered me, enough to knock off a star, even though I do believe this game is a cut above the rest.
If you liked this game, I'd recommend the awakening, spirits of mystery, and dark parables series'.
