Awakening: The Dreamless Castle
This sereis of games is one of favourites ever! In this game the puzzles are quite easy but when you play the rest of the games they get harder. The storyline is great, all the puzzles vary. What I do really like is that you can choose weather you want to play it relaxed or harder, also the places you can go are good, you really get a feel for the kingdom. But what I didn't like so much is that you sometimes don't actually know what your suppused to be doing, because there's no page that says what your objectives are. Overall I recomend this game, definitely worth the purchase.

This is my second in the the Awakenings series. I really enjoyed Moonfell Wood, but this one just seemed way too short. Took me a full 2 hours less to complete. That said, I have to say I did like the game. I am involved with the Awakenings characters and have purchased the other two games and am looking forward to continuing on with the journey.

Fun Hidden Object Game plus minipuzzles
I'm new at this gaming and I'm retired. I like HO puzzles with mini-puzzles. I now have about fifty games and this is one of my favorites. The graphics are wonderful and it is bright and cheerful NOT grey and dark. I play easy/casual because I'm old and this is for FUN.

A beautiful, fun story to get lost in!
As a casual gamer and visual person, I look for games that are pleasing to the eye and move me along at a regular pace. This is one of those. Although I played Moonfell Wood first and like that one better, it would be unfair for me not to rate this one as equally good since it is the first in the series and not expected to look as "good" as later installments. What I love about this game is what others have already said...the soothing music, engaging story, colorful characters, fun animations and just the overall feel of the whole thing. I haven't played the final game in this series yet but have loved each game so far. The puzzles are easy and the replayability is there if for no other reason than to zone out a bit and relax on a lazy afternoon.

These games are great...just a little more challenge and they'd be even better

Wonderful Fairytale Series - A Must Have!
This is sweet, relaxing game-play with a powerful objective, because Sophia - in aiding herself - saves so many others.
The only thing that's missing is her own Prince Charming. When will he arrive? Perhaps to save her and claim her as his own? That would perfect this series altogether.
Make it work with system 10.5 and I'll buy it everytime. Beautiful story. Thank you for the new one. I've already bought it! More! More! I can't get enough of this series.

a princess game for princesses
I personally LOVED this game. It's true that I'm 22 and older people might not enjoy it. Now, if you're looking for a challenging game, don't buy it, because this game is not made to offer challenge or aimed at expert players who get bored easy. It's a very easy and relaxing game ONLY for fantasy lovers. The main character is no hero princess, she's a classic who doesn't like to get her hands dirty and doesn't like spider webs, so think good before getting this so you won't get dissapointed. This game is made for people who want to take it easy in a lazy afternoon.
The story is about a princess who was sleeping since she was little. She wakes up and has to find out who she is and what happened in her past. You have faries and goblins everywhere in the game. You play in a magic kingdom where you are the only human and have no magic at all.
The gameplay is smooth and pretty fast going. You have a fairy that serves as a hint and a journal that stores some information. The HOS are very few and extremely easy. The puzzles are made mostly of match 3 and mahjong (goblinjong) and a lot of picture puzzles which I absolutely loved. You have no strategy guide, but you don't need it.
The graphics are beautiful, it's visible that the game is older but there's still some animation and some voice in the cutscenes, which are few. The music is chosen to fit the enchanted world you're in, but you may want to turn it down a little.
At the end you unlock some rounds of goblinjong. If you play it you get some sort of magic FAQ, if I can call it like that, about humans, fairies and goblins. It isn't anything special, but if you like playing mahjong like me, then go ahead.
As I said, think good if you like easy fantasy games before buying it.

I Loved This Game!
A lovely fairy tale, almost as good as the Dark Parables series, but not as intricate.
Not too hard, not too easy, lovely graphics, interesting puzzles and gameplay. Lovely game. :)
