The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time Collector's Edition is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I guess I'm a Child at Heart I feel this game has been too maligned. The graphics were excellent. The sound and music addressed several of my basic beefs by being relevant and non repetitive. I REALLY enjoyed the fact that there was no overt violence. I play games that provide a mild challenge in the mini-games and this one delivered. The story line was consistent and smooth. It also had a nice mix between HOPs and mini-games. All in all, it was a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Relaxed Fantasy Game Equal with 20 hops and 20 puzzles. I enjoyed this game. The puzzles were relaxed enough for me to do. I only skipped two because I really didn't want to do them. Spoiler alert....... This fantasy game has golems, fairies, dragon, centaur and other creatures. I think the forest creatures are the cutest. In the town, I kept playing with the store signs as they are interactive. The best ones to play with are the dragon, beer troll and superstitions books. I collected 16 Mythical Creatures, 20 crystals and 6 feathers. The bonus chapter is a prequel. I bought this without trying it first. It worked for me this time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FORGOTTEN FAIRY TALES SEQUEL FALLS SHORT COMPARED TO THE FIRST EDITION. This sequel to The Forgotten Fairy Tales: The Spectra World was somewhat childish and too simple to be taken seriously by most experienced casual gamers. I thought the first installment of this series showed great potential but Canvases of Time could have had a more interesting storyline and more innovative puzzles and HOS. This edition involves The Queen of Creation who has created the universe on the Canvases of Eternity, but what will happen when the Shadows of Oblivion come in and destroy the canvases? As the powerful Guardian with magical gifts, can you race across time and restore the canvases before the universe crumbles? Elefun Games in my opinion have a line of promising series but there is nothing remotely exciting about the storyline in The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time as it is essentially just a typical and ordinary fantasy story. It is also so undistinctive that I feel like it could fit any other HOPA series developed by Elefun. The gameplay in The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time is as basic as can be, to the point that it could actually be mistaken as a children’s game. The adventure part of the game presents no depth and complexity, the mini-games are super easy, and the hidden object scenes are all single-layered and insultingly simple. As if to try to spice things up, Elefun included two extra features in the game – a magical bracelet and the Lamp of Life. Unfortunately, both of these features fall flat and fail to add any redeeming qualities to the game which is unfortunate. One redeeming quality about this edition is it's "fun factor". The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time is at least very pretty to look at. The imaginative artwork and extravagant visual effects are effective in creating a fairytale-like experience. In addition, the stellar voice-acting and background music are equally impressive. I decided a four star rating was appropriate because I know Elefun developer's have the creative ability to make this series more challenging and adventuresome. I'm very interested to see them raise the bar with the next installment because I love Elefun games. The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time is a lengthy game which took me approximately four and a half hour to complete, with the bonus chapter clocking in at the 45-minute mark. The bonus section of the Collector’s Edition features mediocre CE bling; a strategy guide, wallpapers, screensavers, concept art, soundtracks, achievements, and collectibles. I hope the next edition is executed with more quality like the original and I look forward to how this series plans on keeping it's fans engaged. Cheers! I recommend both games in this series: •The Forgotten Fairy Tales: The Spectra World •The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RELAXING PRETTY GAME What a pretty and relaxing game. Thoroughly enjoyed the demo. A lot of work went into making the screens interesting. Fun to click/re-click on objects to see them move and make sounds. AND, thank, you! None (as far as I played) of the way too many and either boring or very frustrating puzzles that seem to dominate games of late. Hate them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEING A GUARDIAN OF SPECTRA IS DANGEROUS, THEY'RE TRYING TO KILL ME! The Queen of Creation creates the history of the Universe on her Canvases of Eternity, but what if somebody were to steal one of the Canvases? Would you still exist? Would the World still exist? Would a new reality be created to take its place, or would there just be emptiness? These are scenarios Alice Carpenter does not want to see happen in her lifetime, but time is of the essence, or there may be no worlds left for a Guardian to protect! I have good news and bad news. The famous Elefun Games ....loading...in between all of the scenes and zoom zones, still exists (must be a canvas not yet stolen) the good news is that the time it takes between loading, has decreased significantly (which technically isn't all that great of news) Elefun has also brought back some of the staple features that they were known for, but with a few tweaks. If you aren't familiar with these features, this dev was the only dev I know of that gave a point system, 500 points for finding a collectible, or finding a Morphing Object, which btw this game doesn't have morphs :(, or even finishing a puzzle or HOP. The point system was used to increase your rank as a Detective (cub reporter to award winning journalist) but since Alice isn't a detective, that doesn't work. You don't get points, but, as you collect Mythical Creatures, you do increase rank until you become the Ultimate Myth Hunter. There is a gadget, which can be either good news or bad news, depending on your preference. (only used 7 times) Alice is equipped with the Guardian's Bracelet, which is a magic bracelet that possesses powers of 3 elements. The Red Gem invokes a Fireball, the Blue Gem creates a Frost Sphere, and the Green Gem allows you to move heavy objects. In this Collector's Edition version, there are hidden Feathers to find, the before mentioned Mythological Creatures to increase your rank, and Crystals to collect that allow you to access the Spectra History Room, to learn the secrets of the Spectra World by unlocking parts of the story with the discovered Crystals. This is an okay feature, but I'd prefer Morphing Puzzle pieces. The Hidden Object Scenes include those famous EleFun scenes where you find a handful of fragments located around the entire scene. There are also Interactive List Finds, Multiple Finds, Silhouetted Shape finds, and several HOP's where you find Keywords in Sentence finds. They do offer an alternate Triangular shaped Puzzle game, if you're not into the HOP's. The Mini Games tend to be on the easy breezy side, and most of them can be considered HOP's as well. The lack of challenge and creativity within the Mini Games is one of the reasons I only gave this game 4 stars. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Find multiple symbols shown, hidden on pages in a book. 2) Find matching feathers by clicking two spheres at a time. If you choose correctly, the Crow loses 1 life, if you choose incorrectly, You lose 1 life. 3) Drag fragments to recreate the images. 4) Find matching pairs of related objects by turning over 2 canvases at a time. 5) Sift through scenes to find objects and replace them in the correct scene, using arrows to change scenes. 6) Change your clothes to match the outfit on the poster. This Collector's Edition version has 9 Wallpapers, 11 Concept Art pictures, 3 Screensavers, 35 Music Soundtracks, Achievements to Earn, 16 Bestiary Mythological Creatures to help you rank up, 6 hidden Feather's, 20 hidden Crystals that allow you to learn secrets of the Spectra World, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not superb yet much better than Black Dagger a couple days ago I find it so much harder to grant 5 stars in games offered recently since most games are rehashes both in story line and in game play of countless offerings that have preceded the so-called new game of the day. Canvases of Time comes close ( it's more likely a 4.5 star game ) but there are aspects within that prevent me from rating this a top-notch game. The story has been told thousands of times. There are parallel worlds, one of humans and another fairy tale beings. Lines cannot be crossed otherwise devastation is in the offing. The heroine in the game is the guardian tasked with keeping separation between the realms. Strange and sinister occurrences are befalling Earth so the guardian via a portal crosses to the other side where she meets the ruler who explains that an evil being ( turns out to be a dude named Solas ) is bent on destroying both realms. What is the point in doing so? If both worlds are gone, what happens to Solas? Isn't he gone forever too? This is the sticky part of the story. I realize this is a fantasy game yet this element in the story leaves a major question unanswered. Game play is routine as HOPA goes, a few of the HO sections and puzzles do offer a bit of challenge while none in the demo are overwhelmingly difficult. I do admire how the game is drawn and some of the creatures in the fairy world look cool. Glass prisms are there for those interested in collectibles. I admit I am often taken by the fantasy games with my favorite series being the Dark Parables with the Awakenings coming in at a close second. I think Canvases is an installment of Forgotten Fairy Tales however none of the prior offerings are entrenched in my memory banks. For me the CE presented today is not an option. Perhaps the SE in a few weeks time will be. I feel Canvases is a game that other players will either love or hate. I am in the strongly like camp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Dream of Shadows and Neon Signs – Extras and Bonus Nobody wants to vanish into bottomless oblivion, least of all a folklore professor - thus Alice quickly parries with her Guardian's Bracelet, the magical gadget which holds the Shadows of Oblivion at bay. Yet. We see many unnecessary videos, e.g. Alice who steps into the portal, the queen who tells us to hurry. Also, we hear a bit much dialogue with repeated information. But generally we may rejoyce: the colours are back, also the squeaky voices and other little jokes. Hidden objects, too, are colourful and inventive as they used to be in good times - well, some of them. Others have still the gloomy mediocrity of HOPs of recent games, were probably made by different teams. There is as always much information to gain from notes (and voices) in HOPs. The story is an amusing, slightly muddled hotchpotch with figures from various tales; we meet a snobbish Yoda, a centaur, golems, fairies, of course a dragon and, most important, one of the Parcae, Norns or Sisters of Fate. Usually they appear threesome, but here we have one single Queen of Creation who weaves the canvases of time and history ... and she is blind. Oddly, she seems to partake in the same Mannequin Challenge as Queen Bella and doesn't alter the stiff pose of her outstreched arm once. The baddie Solas - fortunately for once not a muscleman with rams horns - looks like the shady manager of a slot machine hall with a secretive side business in drugs and women. “A solas” means all alone in Spanish – but Solas is not alone, he is possesed by his evil ancestor who can ignite little fires in his eye sockets. Solas has to use a lot of perfume to cover the ancestor's bad smell, lol. The new order or “New Reality” he intends to create is quite an exciting sight: a snowy, gothic city with cool, bluish neon signs everywhere. Don't forget to click them. This could have been a good game. The graphics convey darkness without being dark and depressing. It's humorous and quite fun to play, albeit the puzzles being too easy. But alas, the music ... As you know, I buy Elefun games especially for the soundtracks, as they have the most talented sound designer. In this game however, I had to turn the music off. The wonderful tunes are used as background sound all over the scenes; everywhere invisible orchestras play on and on. Not only it destroys the mood of the scenery – all eeriness of the art work is gone, when it's accompaigned by a soothing melody – it also degrades the music into intolerable muzak. Not even the most perfect 2-minutes track survives a constant repetition over half an hour. Who ever did this to my favourite composer should be severly punished, for example be forced to wear head phones for one month and hear the Song of Eternity in an endless loop. And if it turns out that it's actually the Big Sharks who violate the developers' artistic freedom and instruct them how they have to create HOPAs, I will stop altogether to play BF games. I deducted one star for the constant acoustic irradiation and another one for the unnecessary shooting of a living crow. EXTRAS: - 3 screensavers, 9 wallpapers, the Art Gallery with 11 black-white sketches. - 35 (!) soundtracks, which is over one and half hours of music. I'd recommend to download it and listen independently of the game. Big variety and lots of creepy tunes. I was particularly impressed by a symphony of clocks and a choir work called Destiny. Although the latter appears a bit like a diamond in a box of glass beads and fits not really into a HO game ;) - 5 achievments, 14 mock rewards for playing the game (and yes, they do pop banners into the screen every time). When will Elefun give us more real achievements, I wonder. Such as playing a HOP without mis-click, for example. - Collect 16 easy to spot, mythical creatures to fill the bestiary - which is rather disappointing. The beasts in the size of stamps cannot be enlarged and don't even have names. - Find 6 well hidden feathers to reveal a kind of diary, a summary of your adventure. - Collect 20 crystals of light to open four easy puzzles in the history room. They reveal background information which we probably already know if we have paid attention. The history room is a nice feature but could still be developed, e.g. with more funny things like the embroidery machine. The BONUS CHAPTER is a prequel and has 9 scenes, four of them new. We play as Queen Bella who must search the Queen of Creation to fetch the replacement Lamp of Life for Alice. As it often is with prequels, they are unnecessary, since we know already the outcome. This one is no exception and doesn't add anything essential to the story - thus you might want to wait for the SE.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its Ok A trend I am noticing in recently tested and trialled games is the over use (in my opinion) of video and dialogue scenes. Approximately 8 scenes from start up and I just kept skipping. I wont be purchasing this game for the above reasons.
