Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride
I Could Bear-ly Wait For This SE
The Villagers of a small town have feared the Abyss, feared the evil that resides deep within. Nobody enters the dark forest, everyone fears the unknown. But when a huge bear wreaks havoc on the pre-wedding party and kidnaps your twin sister Lillie, it's more than the townspeople can bear! They Grim and Bear their fears and chase after this beast into the depths of the forest. Meanwhile, an accident in the forest has landed you smack dab into an enchanted cove. As you tinker with gadgets and fix everything broken you come across a witch's cabin, friend or foe? The game begins with some heart pounding action as your carriage is nearly destroyed by this same bear, but the good mews is that you find a kitten to help you chase away rats and retrieve items out of reach. The hidden object games are a variety of finding fragments that make a complete inventory item, as well as finding the first item that matches the silhouetted shape and using this item back in the scene such as a key, using it on a lock, and then finding the next item. You can switch to a game of dominos in place of the HOS. The very first mini game was repairing Lillie's wedding necklace in three steps. First you had to switch flower petals so that each section had matching shapes like circles and squares. Then you had to slide middle gems around until they were in the flower with their matching color. The third step was to link chains from one flower to it's matching flower. The mini game I liked the best was linking colored tiles together with ropes, but you can't cross path's with other colors. A really nice game with an excellent story, enjoy!

Very good production values. The graphics and color palette are outstanding. Such detail - it's an eyeful of incredibly beautiful environments. Love the Kitty, especially watching her trying to climb out of her storage case to help out. Nice voice overs (which can be turned off) except the main male character sounds like a dictator. Fast travel map (showing available actions if playing casual). Play dominoes if you don't want to play the HOS. This is a refreshing, imaginative and beautifully conceived game, with flawless gameplay, for a wonderful day of being entertained. I would have bought 5 minutes into the game, but couldn't stop myself from continuing. Great purchase

Don't Believe the Grumps
This is a great game. Just look at the reviews of the CE. Those who have given it low reviews give almost all games low reviews. Just click on their names and see for yourself.

Bright and amazing!
Another good one from Artifex Mundi! Very well done, am halfway through the game and did not want to stop. HOS can be interchanged with a type of domino game, and the HOS themselves are varied. Storyline flowed well, and the character movements were very realistic and not stiff. I was really amazed with the work they did with the bear's movements and expressions. I like this game!

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS
I enjoyed the treatment of the HOS and the storyline was very good. HOS games are about all you get nowadays as far as casual games go, so it's good to find a worthy one and this one certainly was.

One of the best
I have been playing Hidden Object games for years. Love the way you can choose between Casual, etc. I enjoy casual 99% of the time. Most of the game I didn't need the walkthru, but did need it about 4 times. Most of the puzzles were enjoyable and not too easy, but a few take time to solve or I skipped. Enjoyed the story line quite a bit with an ending that doesn't leave you "hanging. Definitely worth the time. Kudos to Artifex.

I didn't think I would like this game - the story seems so sappy. Turns out, this is a great game. The sappy story was well-told, and it had a few twists. Game play is superb. The HOS are varied and include fragmented objects and lots of IA with some puzzles in the mix. The regular puzzles are good, too. The HINT button works well pointing you in the right direction. There is a jump map, too. The game is long and well thought out. I really enjoyed playing the game.
