Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dark Parables:) I always love the this series:) Collecting all the books and collectibles. I love the music. I've played them all and this is one of the best. You are adventurer who has to pick up the appropriate items to make the inventory work:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dark Parables yet! This was truly a mind-blowing game! Eipix and Blue Tea have taken this series to a new high. First plus: it is a long, interesting game. Second: the graphics are sumptuous and stunning (Eipix artists are sensational!) Third: it is a good story. Fourth: There are signs, morphing objects (parables), and collectibles. I was able to find only the signs, as the morphing objects are hard to find and the collectibles next to impossible. It would be nice if the developer would TELL us that these things are to be found. There is an indicator for the signs, but not the rest. I never figured it out until I accidentally saw an object morph. I only found the collectibles at the end during the bonus extras. The HO scenes were a departure from past Dark Parables games: you will be glad the cursor has a sharp point on it because you need to hit the object right on it, and the objects have become small and difficult to find. I am actually glad of this because it had gotten to the point where I was able to find all the hidden objects quickly and easily without even looking to see what needed to be located. It was nice to have to work at it. One minor negative: there is a whole lot of rain in this game! It didn’t seem to add anything to the atmosphere. Rain does make things harder to find, but so does mist which is not so annoying. There is lots to do in the bonus extras – which is where I finally found the morphs and collectibles. I’d give this at least 6 stars if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Game: Requiem for the Forgotten Shadow So glad I waited for the organ puzzle to be fixed, because this new Dark Parables has now become one of my favorites of this series. Guida is my new favorite character and I certainly hope to see more of her in the future. The Shadow world is perfectly spooky, and I loved lighting the candles and finding all the hidden objects. Thanks for a great new game, Eipix!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the Dark Parables series This game is for those who delight in relaxing game play, with crisp graphics and a story-line you can actually follow. The HO scenes are challenging, but not impossible, and the puzzles need some thought. I have purchased all the Dark Parable games and this is one of the best. One of the most valued elements of these CE versions is the ability, once the game is complete, to go back and collect any missing collections/souvenirs/parable items. This gives hours of great value gameplay and the chance to obtain all the achievements. If you haven't tried any of the Dark Parable series try this one and immerse yourself in the engaging world Eipix/Blue Tea have created.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DARK PARABLES 13 LEAVES FANS DISAPPOINTED IN THIS EDITION... Requiem for the Forgotten Shadow is the thirteenth installment in the Dark Parables series. The game takes place in the town of Anaben at the foot of the Swiss Alps. As the Fairytale Detective, you are sent to investigate a mysterious illness that is turning the people of Anaben into shadows of their former selves. This game is based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Shadow (Skyggen). The challenge is, most people are not at all familiar with this story! You are going to travel to Switzerland to deal with another mystery going on in a town of Anaben. You are hired by the town's duke to investigate a mysterious illness that turns the citizens into shadows. People's bodies are literally being emptied of themselves left and right. You need to hurry with your investigation before you yourself turns into a shadow of yourself. It doesn't take to be a medical doctor to understand that it is not an illness, but rather a dark magic used with evil intentions. You are going to deal with a secret group to stop this madness. The game's graphics are just wonderful. Lots of colors, shades and details. This collector's edition offers four modes of play: Casual, Hard, Insane, and Custom. You get to adjust the skips and hint according to your skills and liking. You get a map and a strategy guide to help you navigate and get help when you need it. The gameplay itself seems to be geared toward more experienced players. But you can always fix that with the custom settings. The hidden object scenes are all FROGs, which makes it a paradise for the fans of looking for pieces of inventory. But, if you are not one of them, you will have to accept that. The puzzles are very interesting and vary a lot, but they might get a bit challenging for some of the non expert players. This has become a common feature of the Dark Parables series, perhaps a bit too common. The Parables are broken into: Rise of the Shadow God The Maiden and The Shadow The First Handmaiden Fall of the Shadow God I remember these from connecting the previous editions. The Maiden Goddess, depicted in The Final Cinderella, appears in physical appearance for the first time. ◾ In the warehouse are a bear and human automaton, which were first featured in Goldilocks and the Fallen Star. ◾ The Detective meets the Fairy Queen, who first appeared in Rumpelstiltskin and the Queen. ◾ One of the pieces the Detectives needs to build the Shade's Lantern is the Bolide Shard, which was heavily featured in Jack and the Sky Kingdom. ◾ The Moon Goddess and Sun Goddess make a brief appearance at the very end, whom the Detective last saw in Goldilocks and the Fallen Star. ◾ The book, Skyggen, made a second brief appearance. The first time it made an appearance was in the last game in The Thief and the Tinderbox. I am going to leave the CE bling out of this review, multiple reviewers have already covered all of the material.There is a bonus chapter where you continue to help the duke and the duchess by restoring their well-being which I enjoyed very much. I hear everyones plea to allow Blue Tea to have more input on this series if it's going to continue enticing the fan base into adding another Dark Parable game into their collection. I agree with these comments too. I'm giving this one 5 stars because of the outstanding graphics, gameplay, and the level of difficulty. I hope the next installment of this phenomenal series is better with Blue Tea having more of a creative presence. Demo this one to see if you are interested in continuing. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a great series I am so glad I ignored the low rating and purchased this game. I honestly found this an amazing game for many reasons. The beautiful artwork and bright colors, the unique storyline, the creative puzzles all add up to a winner for me. I hope others give this a chance. Do the trail at least. I really think it is a great addition to a great series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another winner in my book This game is getting a lot of bad press that - in my not so humble opinion - it doesn't deserve. I haven't yet done the bonus game, but based on the main game, it's an excellent one! When I first started playing these games (2012) Blue Tea was one of my favorites. I'm glad to see it back again, even if it is with Eipix's help. I tend to like Eipix's games, too. The puzzles are quite challenging - I skipped a few, but I'm going to go back and try them again in the extras. I can see these puzzles coming back to haunt me in the future if I don't. I know a lot of people don't like the HOPs where you are assembling an object, but I don't see where they are any different from finding things on a list or from silhouettes. I often try to find the pieces without even looking at the sample pieces. In other words, just try to see what doesn't fit into the scene and pick those pieces. I managed to get three perfect HOPs done that way. For me, this was a real challenge. There wasn't anything I didn't like. The graphics are great, the music fades into the background, the story is both enjoyable and easy to follow. I will admit that the collectibles were tiny and difficult to find. That made it that much more fun to locate them. I didn't do very well with the parable pieces (morphing), but that doesn't upset me at all. For anyone who is on the fence, play the free trial before you say no. If you're up for a challenge, go for it. It really was a good, interesting, challenge game for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Fun! I base my reviews on the fun factor, not necessarily the story line...this game had great puzzles, collectors items were tough to find (isn't that the point?), and mini games were mostly very fun and just the right level of challenging! I do have a lot of trouble with the morphing items in these games, since I never know which scenes contain them...there are just a few scattered throughout... but I can find them once the Extras become available. Please try the demo for yourself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Requiem I will attend again soon! What a delight! The Alps are a fantastic background for the story, gameplay was smooth, the atmosphere very gripping. Watching the tornado from the balcony in the palace was just fantastic! I stared at the screen for at least ten minutes before playing on. The FROGs, as the one on the bridge or the stained glass window are so beautiful - and challenging. You really have to look and compare and this gives you a chance to discover so much more. Something I enjoy a lot! For me this is the difference between fast and slow food. I don’t tuck in just to satisfy my hunger, I play slowly and enjoy every single crumb. I have the impression, the cooks go out, shop for the best ingredients (organic) and test recipes to find the best combination. Something else I like a lot: being led astray, you expect another mind boggling puzzle, but all you have to do is putting something into place, as the spider on the river bank. And I loved finding the signs, thought it was brilliant they didn’t disappear for once, but were lit, great! Some of them were really hard to find, very well placed. If you’ve missed one, don’t worry. When you have finished the game you can go back and get them, as you can for parables and get more or even all achievements. The Bonus Chapter(s) were interesting to play, I loved the mountain scenery, the very different colour scheme. The puzzles were a mixed bag for me. Some of them I just loved, as the one with the tiles on the Tower Wall or beating Guida in the tic tac toe variation. Or completing the sun and the moon. Having no instructions at all was fun here. Other ones not so much, as this one with the tokens. Or the one where you have to fight the henchman in the warehouse, just clicking is so boring. So glad there is a skip button. In my opinion the concept of skip and hint was a bit confusing. I prefer having a hint button for mini games as the one where the story is told about the writer and his shadow. On the other hand I think a skip button would have been better for the organ puzzle. I took me quite some time to do it, but as I love organ music and was glad the instrument sounded like an organ I didn’t mind. Still, a skip button would be better in my opinion, especially when the Strategy Guide is lacking clear instructions. The picture was no help at all. Reading the credits I understand the SG is done by BFG. Please, please use a font and a font size which is clearer! In spite of what I didn’t like, I had a great time playing this game. Another 5 star game for me! Hvala puno!
