All Your Nightmares Are Coming True! Aunt Gray was running a little late for the Annual Gray Family Reunion, it's a good thing because adopted brother Thomas has escaped from the mental institution! Thomas never felt close to his adopted family, with the exception of Luisa who loved watching Thomas paint, a truly talented artist. Little did she know, Thomas was able to turn his paintings into reality, and today he has used this unique ability to seek revenge on every Gray family member for institutionalizing him. Thomas has planned a surprise, the Gray family members will relive their nightmares, exposing each of their darkest family secrets! John and Luisa will once again bare the werewolf curse, Jackie will once again face Bloody Mary and James was found innocent of his sister Elizabeth's murder, or was he? The Gray's seem to have more than their fair share of drama, can Aunt Gray help every family member at the same time and put an end to Thomas' irrational behavior? The graphics just keep getting better and better with each new Grim Tales release, and the interactive features are the icing on the cake! Every scene has several items to interact with in an attempt to make the game as real as possible, feed the fish and watch them gobble up the food, play with the pond's fountains and watch the water dance, move branches out of your way and turn on the lamps, even better, most of the scenes allow you to scroll left and right seemingly flawless! Some of the inventory items require you to interact with them as well such as repairing that item or combining that item with another inventory item before using.You will also come across Thomas' painting kit that allows you to paint unfinished sketches you come across, and bring them to life just as Thomas does. The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly interactive list finds and some of the HO objects you find will reveal a fragmented piece that can be assembled when all pieces are found. One of my favorite mini games required you to interact with different elements to solve the puzzle such as, clicking on flower petals to receive a moon emblem which is then placed above the wolf who begins to howl causing stars to twinkle in a specific sequence that you repeat. The wolf disappears and a Bichon Frise dog appears, you place the dog with Elizabeth and click on him several times to chase away her murderer and you continue this process with each family members personal nightmare. The Collectors Edition is so much more fun with Morphing Objects, Collectible monsters, a Secret Room, Achievements, Wallpapers, Concept Art, Screensavers, Music, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

A Fantastic Finale to the Series! I very rarely give a game a 5* rating across the board; this is the exception. What an amazing game! It takes the story line from each of the other 'Grim Tales' games, then puts a bow on it all! Fantastic imagination by the developers. I can't say anything bad about this game. It took me quite a long time to play, but I enjoyed every minute of it. There are 3 levels of game-play challenge, on easy mode the hint/skip charges in about 30 seconds. There is a jump-map, & believe me, you'll need it. Although you are in just one house [ok, an estate], there are a lot of rooms & a lot of jumping back & forth. I sometimes find that irritating, but the flow of the game was so good that I didn't mind. The graphics are superb. Everything is clear & well defined. I did have a bit of a problem with the program in general. It is a very large file, & it would sometimes take 5-15 seconds for the next scene to load. There are a variety of HO scenes, each one is distinctly different. You will NOT play the same scene more than once. Elephant Developers have a keen mind when it comes to mini-games. They were all interactive & took some thinking to get through. But they were so nice compared to the stale mini's found in other games. Don't give up on them! The game is a bit 'dark'. Dealing with the mental health of an unstable 'brother'. Re-play value on this game would be very high. Since it is the last of the 'Grim Tales' series, you'd have plenty of time to go back & play all of the others [which you should definitely do] & then come back to this one. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GAME. January 9, 2015
SAVE THE GRAYS FROM THOMAS Very clever puzzles in this game. The graphics are bright. You get helpers along the way -- you draw them; then color and then release them to help you. You have a map, hint button and can teleport. December 28, 2014
Different and enjoyable Love the Grim Tales series and this was no exception. Although a bit "dark" in the sense its based on a jilted lovers intense hate for his childhood girlfriend, its still entertaining and quite long for a SE. I used the transporter hint most of the time for moving around; it was just easier than using the map and both the hint and skip were very quick to refresh. Enjoyed the storyline and the gameplay was smooth. Some scenes were wide and you had to move from side to side which took some getting used to. HOS were entertaining and varied and the puzzles were fine too. I actually did most of them. After I figured out the paint pallet I enjoyed that too and thought it was an interesting concept to the game. All in all, its a 5 star. The only con was the ending was a bit abrupt, but it closed the game nicely. I'm sure the CE expands more, but it's not worth paying double the price for. January 3, 2016
GREAT GAME!!!! Elephant has done it again, as usual!! Pennmom said it all! Nothing more to say, except : A GREAT GAME!!!! Just bought the new Grim Tales! July 5, 2015
Overall worth buying This game has so many new type hidden object areas & I could click Hint if needed - but didn't use much. I enjoyed the mini-games even though usually they were hard & didn't know what to do next. Unfortunately I had to skip because there was no hint for that part. This part would be better if they had a Hint for various areas (not just the info) - so I could continue instead of having to completely skip it. The developers did a lot of work to create all these different things/games you have to do - but a decent hint would work in those places. Otherwise you do have Hints you can use. When you complete a room, you go to another room & may have to go back to that room. In the beginning that is just typical playing. But it did get rather annoying toward the ending because you have to go from room to room to room to room just to get 1 item or place an item. The Best part of that is they have the Map you can use to go from room to room & it shows you Where you need to go. Even though there is some eery (spelling) rooms but even the darker areas didn't stay that way for long. (I personally do not like the really dark-type & was afraid this was one of them - but it wasn't) [To make it even better - perhaps more rooms we've not seen - even if we had to return to previous rooms - and to add more help on the mini-games because I wanted to finish them but when I got stuck, I had to skip.] But Overall, it was well worth my time & was fun while it made me think, consider, find. - And most wasn't very easy.

very good game It is very good game but it is not final.The next part's name is grim tales.final suspect March 19, 2015
Not Quite Great But Close! This is another really good game by Elephant. In some ways I liked this better than Dire Grove, Sacred Grove. I guess I liked this story better. Vivid graphics, great sound, fun mini-games. I'm liking the Rube Goldberg puzzles more and more. Cons: I wish all games would follow Dire Grove's example and allow you to choose your gender. I know this is an Aunt Gray story, but it's more fun when you can jump into the character's skin and solve the mystery. I'm more Sherlock Holmes than Miss Marple. The ending was abrupt, as most of these games are. I wish they would spend a little more time wrapping them up in a satisfying way. The bonus chapter was the same. However, my disappointment was mitigated by the extra game at the end. That was a lot of fun! The story was well done and the voiceovers were pretty good this time, with the exception of Thomas. Some were downright scary, which is a good thing. Overall, an almost great story. Elephant consistently does very good to great games, so you can't go wrong with this one. Recommended.

Talk about holding grudges!!! Intriquing game! I'm nearing the end of the SE version of Grim Tales: Color of Fright. There are no levels of play in this game; no sparkles as some games will have, although in other games if the option is there I usually customize my games w/o the sparkles. There is a good but not perfect map--some items that I know were active in other areas were not marked as such. You have a good hint button if needed. The only thing is this is not a game for people who like order. Your tasks are scattered all over the place. You need to be patient; pay attention; read the texts, notes, and diary. Go to your map! In some scenes you will be moving virtually from left to center to right and back again via an arrow. This game is very thought-provoking and can be overwhelming at times but it is most challenging, too. Very innovative tasks to complete! I loved that! You will have some items in your inventory that won't be used for a while.There should be no distractions while playing this game. It's not your cutesy, kick your shoes off, casual kind of game either. In my opinion, it's not really difficult but very detailed oriented. The mini-games are awesome; the HOS are interactions within interactions! Then you have your color palette tasks--connect the dots; paint by symbols with your color palette, etc. From that game you will have formed a very useful object/figure that can be used elsewhere. Graphics were amazing; voiceovers, save but a couple, were great! Grim Tales is a great series and the Elephant Game developers deserve high praise on this one. I would have given this game a 5-star but there are some quirks such as there is no rhyme to some of the tasks' meaning. One character along the way needs DIRE saving but she has a key to give you to open an object to save yet another character. I thought, 'Hey, lady, I'll take care of him after I save you first! Such is not the case here; that's where my frustration comes in to play as I want to save the one who needs it the most especially when you're being prompted to save her/him ASAP! I give this game 4 1/2 stars out of 5 but there is no rating system at Big Fish for 1/2 stars. Anyway, kudos to Elephant Games on this one! I very much recommend this game! June 27, 2015
