Customer Reviews
Cursery: The Crooked Man and the Crooked Cat Collector's Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 176.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The same feel and sounds of Dark Parable Even the sound of the cursed objects aka morphs are the same, like a bat fluttering. This was put out in 2013 in between The final Cinderella and Jack the sky kingdom I think. The mouse puzzle where you move the mice around by manipulating the scene was my favorite puzzle. The scenes are beautiful and not dark. The map is unique with the paper cut out symbols and the cat moving. The bonus game is not cute but a dark tale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enchanting Adventure Puzzle F.R.O.G. This is one of the better games I have ever played on Big Fish. - Story is cohesive - a warped Mother Goose Tale (you will be surprised by who the villain behind the Crooked Man really is - but you must read the little notes left all over by the Crooked Man as he chronicles his journey into madness to learn the identity) - SE is complete and satisfying - Adventure progresses rapidly along - no let up in the fun - Good mix of amusing puzzles, mini-games and Fractured Objects - Whimsical, yet a bit twisted fairy tale world - Lots of locations - Excellent Jump Map Great finale The creators and artists for this game are of Chinese descent. This is unusual. The level of care taken for this game is evident throughout - including a number of haunting songs for the score. Not too dark. I loved this game and could not stop playing until I finished it. about 5 hours. Used the Walkthrough for a couple of puzzles to better understand how to complete them. There is a very fast skip bar but you should try the puzzles -- they are a super. Enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SICKOpath Psychopath This creepy guy takes obsession to a whole new pathetic level. I loved the game. It was very interactive, everything was top notch. Great graphics and color, and interesting things to feast my eyes on along the way. I do wish the cat had more involvement in the story though. The game was excellent and certainly worthy of far more than 5 stars! With that being said, I am wondering how it can lead to such a weak, abrupt, "sped-up" poor ending. These devs and story writers have proven their talents to be superb! So why can't they give us an ending with more substance and satisfaction? I absolutely love these "fractured" fairy tales and hope more of them are in the future of Big Fish Games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fun game This is a charming game. The artwork is unique, the music is nice, and the story is good. It is a little spooky in parts, but in a good way.The bonus game is OK, but not necessary to enjoy the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Mother Goose, you twisted lady This IS a darker and more adult story line than one would assume from a Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme. It's a very adult story full of revenge, hatred and despair. IT'S AWESOME. Of all the games I have purchased, this is the one that I have played repeatedly. It plays like a Dark Parable but uses a Mother Goose story line instead. The game is visually beautiful, intricate, dark and emotional. Not "boo-hoo" emotional but more of the "gah, no wonder he went down a dark path of crazy" kind of emotional. Gameplay is long. Bonus game is....creepy and unsettling, but again, intriguing. The only thing that upsets me is that there hasn't been more Cursery games made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun games, a great story line, and beautiful artwork. I like HOG, but tire of the hidden object scenes that take over the story...here you keep moving with easy access to past scenes. Only fault is once a puzzle piece is added all the beautiful artwork ...disappears. I would like to have enjoyed it a bit more. Good story line...a broken heartened lover willing to pay anything for his lost love. Oh don't we women love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Parables at the Top of the Gaming Chain! Just played and wanted to weigh in on this extraordinary pc game--a love story Dark Parables style. Pure genius with all the CE trimmings--music, wallpaper, concept art, morphing objects, collectibles, achievements and the Humpty Dumpty bonus game. There's a sun and moon emblem in the bonus chapter that I must have for a tattoo and will 1st ask their permission. Nothing is left undone in this game as the music and artwork wows gamers as well as the very lengthy gameplay! Yay! Thank you Blue Tea Games Developers. I buy every BTG game that is released--especially the CE versions as I can't get enough and don't want to miss out on the pure genius of their artists and staff. Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good that I beat it in one sitting! I am a pretty tough reviewer and I say that this one is a gem among HOP games. Pros: The voice acting is very good and the visuals are quite beautiful. The atmosphere that the world places you in is dark and twisted in such a lovely way; you really do feel as though you are in a nursery rhyme gone wrong. I greatly enjoyed just exploring the scenery and admiring the subtle nursery rhyme connections from my childhood. Good mini games too. A bit of repetition from the technique standpoint, but there are no more than three types of a single puzzle technique and each one is significantly different enough to require a new strategy, so I am happy with that. They got progressively harder in a good way. I was never frustrated by one, though a few of them were doozies! The storyline is pretty good also. You have your usual maniacal villain who may not always make the most sense because he's messed up in the head, but at least you can follow his backstory and you can actually feel a bit of pity for the Crooked Man and his Crooked Cat once you dig in deep enough. Not a fan of the ending at all, though... Great work on the map; I love the action indicators. I liked all of the side thoughts also (the text you get when clicking on the environment). Cons: I kept receiving 'achievements' throughout the game, but they seemed to be tied to reaching specific points in the storyline, rather than actually achieving something I put effort into. Also, I couldn't view these achievements (like in a menu) and there was no text explaining what they were when I got them, so that was frustrating. It made me feel like they were worthless and soon I didn't care at all. I felt similarly regarding the morphing objects. Finding them doesn't grant an achievement, it just makes your Hint gauge rise faster. Well, I couldn't care less about that. I NEVER use hints or skips, so there was no drive for me to invest time in finding those objects. Overall, though, I greatly enjoyed it and I couldn't put it down, so I finished it all in one sitting! Please bring on many more Cursery games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great one BTG!!! As a huge fan of the Dark Parable series I jumped at the chance to play Cursery. BTG always has a very different and fun twist to the old fairy tales we all know and love. Cursery did not disappoint! The graphics are absolutely beautiful as always and the background music was great and fit the game perfectly. There weren't many HOS which I liked because HOS get old after a while. There were puzzles galore with some being quite challenging and others were quite simple to solve. Unless you play on advanced mode there is a map with fast travel. Unfortunately, there was not journal feature. I happy to see that they kept the morphing objects feature. The bonus content included a story about Humpty Dumpty. It was definitely a twist that I never would have expected, but still quite enjoyable! Overall it was a wonderful game and definitely worth playing.
