Grim Tales: Crimson Hollow 3.7 5 7 7
Black Widow Baby There's nothing better than playing the demo of a game, thinking you have the plot figured out, only to find out that you were wrong, dead wrong! Mandms33 was absolutely correct with her title, because I didn't see that one coming either! Once you get to about the third chapter you're probably not going to know who to trust, but there's always good ole dad to help you out. I'm so glad I purchased this game, I did however opt for the Collector's Edition, mostly because I love Morphing Objects.Here's a rundown of one of the best Grim Tales to date. Detective Anna Gray has a new case to solve, one that might be a little too close for comfort! Rosette Darkwood has asked Anna to look into the mysterious disappearances of several of her Boarding School students that have gone missing. The headmistress has a few theories of her own, because all of the women were last seen with the handsome Dorian Black, at his family's mansion, Crimson Hollow. The Black family and the Gray family might have more in common than Anna ever imagined, and Dorian may be impossible to investigate if he has the same abilities as Anna! Daddy dearest is alive and well, sort of. If you remember the last episode, Anna received some unexpected help from her father Richard's spirit when her nephew's son was kidnapped. After the investigation, Anna kept her father's powerful skull (weird right?) and just so it wouldn't fall into the wrong hands, she has brought the skull with her. Once inside Crimson Hollow, Richard Gray is awakened once more, perhaps because of the family ties that bind.....whenever his skull glows, dad has something important to discuss with you, but just bits and pieces of information at a time. There are a couple of devices to help your investigation, Anna's trusty detective kit with a lockpick, a screwdriver and a flashlight (high tech stuff) and a Charm that was actually given to Dorian by Richard. The charm is called the Sphere of Time and is capable of allowing its owner to travel to the past even when protected by magic. One thing's for sure, this series just keeps getting better and better! You can always count on Grim Tales games to have exceptional graphics and a flawless incorporation of real characters. What often goes unnoticed however is the sounds. You can hear the wind howling, and the crackle of a fire, everything is realistic, and several things can be interacted with, just because you can! Stop playing for just a few seconds and listen, the sights and sounds are what make or break a game and you may not even know it. The Collector's Edition has hidden Jigsaw Pieces that will allow you to assemble 3 different Screensavers, Entailed Castle, Ancient Secrets, and Family curse pictures. As far as I can remember, all Grim Tales Collector's Editions have Morphing Objects, and the Morphs in Crimson Hollow are very creative, some of which aren't very obvious. There are also 10 Morphing Portraits to find and the normal CE bling of Achievements, Wallpapers, Secret Rooms and even Archives. The Hidden Object Scenes are really just average, for me, that's okay as long as the Mini Games are decent and in abundance and they certainly are. There are Silhouetted Shape finds, finding items that match Keywords in a story setting, Listed Item finds and even small Zoom Zone HOP's where you are tasked with finding a handful of fragments. My favorite scene was finding items that matched their Silhouetted Shapes, but the items morphed and you had to click on the item when it was in it's correct form. The Mini Games are a mixture of small and simple puzzles to longer more frustrating types, but seem to be very doable. Below are brief descriptions of some of the Mini Games you'll encounter during the demo and a few of my favorites from the main game: 1) Select a word from each column that relates to the clues given, then click search on the computer. If correct you will read information pertaining to the search. 2) Fill each bronze plate with the correct number of spheres based on the number clues next to them and use the green triangle to move the spheres from one plate to another. 3) Control the magnet to take out all of the fragments from the fountain. 4) Move the cubes so that they will fit into the top slots of the lock using directional arrows on rows and columns. 5) Release the brides spirit from the door by selecting locks from beginning to end on chains that are free. 6) Trap the white checker piece in the corner using black checkers that can be moved to highlighted places on the board. 7) Move the clock hands so that the clock is set to Midnight, moving one hand may affect others and at different speeds. 8) Navigate to the center of the labyrinth in a specific number of moves, using directional arrows. 9) Select the correct piano keys using a complex cypher clue. 10) Select matching pairs of symbols by clicking on black spots to flip over two at a time. If you choose the incorrect matching symbol you will have to star over from the beginning. 11) Turn off all the runes on the shackles, when you turn off one rune, you change the state of adjacent runes. 12) Move the iconic monuments to the correct locations on a map. The Collector's Edition has 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art pictures, Archives, a Secret Room, 5 Music Soundtracks, Hidden Jigsaw Puzzle pieces that allow you to assemble 3 different Screensavers, Morphing Objects, 10 Morphing Portraits, 15 Achievements (to the best of my knowledge) a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

SURPRISE! SURPRISE! DIDN'T SEE THAT ONE COMING This is a great game. I reviewed the CE and loved it. The storyline is different and well written. The bad guy isn't who I thought it was; and I was convinced I had it right. The Grim Tales series continues as you investigate the disappearance of a girl that attends a girls school run by a mysterious woman, who heads a secret organization titled "The Black Widows." The music builds creating that urgency, needed to find out more. The graphics are very well done and the unique HOPS and mini games begin immediately. SE or CE this game is worth the buy. I recommend it to all. You won't be disappointed. Thanks, Mia. September 23, 2016
THE GRAYS AND THE BLACKS...ESSIENTAL EDITION FOR FANS!!! WOW. Fist I have to say that I was very impressed with this continuation of this fascinating series. Dorian Black's story will remind you of Oscar Wilde's 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'. Also ties in with Aunt Grays new powers of youth and her ghost father who makes appearances in this addition is young too. A girl has gone missing from the boarding school and you are called in to investigate. The last time she was seen with a mysterious man, Dorian Black. You didn't realize that what looked like yet another case would turn into a quite dark and dangerous mystery case in which you yourself may fall victim. Aunt Grey is back with her father and this time, you also have black widows and a serial killer. There is a lot to discover in this game as the story takes unexpected turns. This installment from Elephant Games tells you more about the Black family through collectibles throughout the game. There is a connection between the two families. This game's graphics are very well done in the blue and red with a great play on shades and light. The characters are very realistic and the music and sounds are creepy and well fitting. It is a story that sucks you in till theend. All parts of the game are important for it to create the correct impression on the players, and Elephant Games have done a great job withGrim Tales: Crimson Hollow. The gameplay is fast-paced throwing you from one task to another. You choose from four modes of difficulty (Casual, Advanced, Hardcore, and Custom) and jump right into it. Both SE and CE versions are worthy of purchase. Maybe all the extra bling in the CE doesn't matter to you, which is fine. I can say that the CE gives you a bonus game where you deal with the past and the present collide forming another informative adventure for you. Lots of new developments in this edition which are brilliant and shows how the future of the series shall continue. I am such a fan. You won't be disappointed with this installment, some who are new to the series, I see becoming new fans. I highly recommend this one for players of every level. Thanks Big Fish for all the editions of Grim Tales and many more to come. XoX September 24, 2016
Beautiful but Very Short The game looks great, beautiful drawings and spaces, cute HOPs. But the story does not stick to your mind and the total game is very short, in the regular version. I am a little dissapointed due to that. Make games longer, please! October 8, 2016
Just Another Version of the Same Thing This is posted after playing the entire game. I have several games from this series, and after playing the demo I thought, well this might just be a little different. It wasn't. Started off really well, but then settled into the same old stuff we have been given here lately. Ghosts to fight, demons to overcome and good ol' daddy is back to help and the Blacks to save... again... yawn. The graphics were well done. It starts out a bit dark, but then colors up, then darkens, then color. Good combination. Sound, including the music and voice overs, was excellent. Hidden objects were varied which was nice. From the list to silhouettes to morphing, to interactive. I always use the tutorial and I'm glad I did, because toward the end of the game there was something added I would have never figured out. The mini games were mostly beyond my patience level or I couldn't figure out what to do. I did perform several of them, but they were really easy, like painting a picture, unlocking chains and such like that. The rest, I was glad I had the custom setting so I could skip and move on. The interactive map was a big help, because not only do you have things to do in the present, you have to switch to the past, but only in certain places, to continue the quest. If the map didn't show something to do in one time, you needed to remember where the place was you could switch, go there and head for the other world. Kind of confusing, but I made it. Story was well written and had continuity. My problem with this game was the theme. I'm really tire of it and looking for a break. Had I not been inundated with ghosts, witches and goblins which seems like forever, I would have liked this game much much better. If you aren't tired of the this theme or enjoy it, then you'll love this one. Give the demo a try and see how you like it. October 4, 2016
found it awkward Although this game had very good animations, voice overs and graphics I found it to be a very awkward game to play. It had several game play options to chose from and I chose custom because I could set the hint and skip to recharge very quickly....and that was a good thing in this game. The map was totally useless to me. It only displayed my position and areas that there was "no activity". Even though the map key indicated a ? would display "something to do", it never did. I used the hint, which was also a transporter to get around the game...which was faster than trying to figure out the map. I found the mini games tedious and the instructions not clear so I skipped almost all of them. HOS were a combination of morphing and list and often too dark so you found yourself clicking in a dark hole to find an object. Story was cumbersome with strong associations to the "Picture of Dorian Grey" with a lot of weird twists to it. I did get a bit bored. I like the Grim Tales series, but was a bit disappointed with this one. October 15, 2016
Four and a half stars, Really? This is one of the worst games I have ever played. I love fantasy and magic story based games, this one went way beyond stupid with the story line. I won't go into detail as I am not one to give spoilers no matter how much I hated a game. I love a good story no matter how far fetched it is, just give me consistancy. Twists and turns are one thing, especially if done right. Total back flips with no reason are just very poor writing. If you are looking for a good story avoid this one, it fails miserably.
