Lovely fairytale!!! Quit different than thought:-)
Everyone knows the legend of the Snowqueen by Christian Andersen. This story is different... the kingdom faced hard times and in order to overcome them, King Henry agreed a bad deal with a magician. Now this magician wants his part of the contract fullfilled and thus the golden apple. But only the princess can touch i without getting transformed to stone. So she is in great danger. This is the storyline - but what i really love are the wonderful graphics, the nice music, the flow of actions, the perfect design... there are so many little things where you just stare and are delighted with (for all the locks and valves are designed great!!!) I do love this kind of stories, especially when the game has a good flow and you almost feel being part of the fairytale.The developers really did a beautiful job here to make us players joyful! Thanks!!!

What an adorable game!
Definitely one of the best games especially if you are a beginner. HOS plays very simple and fun. The story is line is like Snow White to Cinderella. It will not scare you out of your boots, but a beautiful story where the 2 prince's had to save their loves and one becomes evil because of the loss of his true love. The Bonus chapter awesome!

The Perfect Game
The quality of the visuals in this game are amazing. Every scene is like stepping into a beautifully animated storybook.
Every scene has special interactive touches, such as store signs that swing freely when you touch them or a cat that will play with a ball of yarn when you click on it and leaves that blow gently across the scene.
The creators of the game have gone to extra measures to make you feel like you are part of a movie. You carry with you an animal friend in the form of a Lynx who you get to name within the game. The lynx is helpful in getting some items in hard to reach places.
There is an interactive map that shows you where you are and where you need to go to perform tasks. There are lots of hidden object scenes that are bright and colorful and animated in high detail with interactive parts. For example, one hidden object scene requires you to find marshmallows among other objects, but, you have to bake the marshmallows first within the hidden object scene by following a recipe and using an oven.
There are also magic scrolls and potions to locate and secret morphing objects to collect as well as cleverly hidden snowflakes to collect for extra merit. The story itself is also great. You are a hunter who rescues a princess whose horse-drawn carriage has come under attack. After bringing her back to your cabin, she becomes magically trapped inside a snow globe and you begin a long dangerous quest to amazing places in an effort to set her free, including collecting magic spells to help you overcome obstacles. It's great from start to finish.

It's been over a year since the phenomenal Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers, and many have been waiting for the sequel. While this game isn't very attached to the first one, there are a few elements in common, such as masked villains and collectible figurines that advance the story.
Other than that, Legend of the Snow Kingdom is a very good game, with impressive visuals and fun gameplay. The game was a very long one, it took me about four and a half hours to finish the main game, and another hour for the bonus chapter, which ties in more with the first game.
Legend of the Snow Kingdom provides a fantastic gaming experience. It is visually wonderful and a very entertaining game to play.

We have a winner!
Now this game was worth waiting for! Excellent (slightly cartoonish but awesome!) graphics which I happen to love, wonderful story! Excellent mini-games (not seen many of these before) even awesome hidden object scenes - interactive and find multiples of objects. To the devs - Well done! This is excellent and surpasses all my expectations!

This is a good fairy tale with a surprise ending (perhaps a sequel will be coming). There are 10 chapters, 3 bonus chapters, magic scrolls, snow flakes and morphing objects to find. You do go back to the hidden objects more than once but I didn't mind it in this game. The mini-puzzles for the most part are not hard and you can skip them. You have a map, strategy guide and hint button. I really liked the graphics, the town and atmosphere of the game were very well done.
