Customer Reviews
Dark Romance: Winter Lily is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best game in this series--awesome!!! I have played games in this series, but was continually astonished by how good this game is compared to previous ones. The devs have really stepped it up and offered an outstanding game that is fun to play and a visual feast for the eyes. The story is easy to follow and a variation of the Snow White and Sleeping Beauty leitmotif. The artwork is fantastic--high def, movie style cut scenes, good special effects, wonderful to look at.The protagonists are movie star-gorgeous, and even bit players are good to look at. Puzzles are easy, even on Hardcore mode. Only 2 puzzles made me change to Advanced mode so I could skip. The HOPs are varied and not boring and not plentiful, but just enough to keep junk pile addicts satisfied. You can always play match 3 as an option. The only little flaw in the game is the voiceover for the Queen doesn't match the drawn character and I found the voice annoying, like scratching on a chalkboard. Other than that, the VOs were good and appropriate to the visual appearance of the person. As usual, the game is played from 2 perspectives, one male and one female. There is a locket at bottom left and it glows when you need to change perspective. Well done devs, hope to see more like this in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in so many ways! I don’t often write reviews, but when I play a game that is really well done, I like to give credit to the company that publishes it, the creative writers, and amazing graphic designers. My husband and I are elderly and love hidden object games, but often times, the mini-puzzles are too difficult. That is why we loved being able to choose between an “easy” and a “hard” level on the mini-puzzles. For us, the easy level was fun instead of frustrating. I give major kudos for the bright colors used throughout this game. And also switching back and forth between two characters was a welcome change that is rarely done. We don’t usually like the plot lines, but this one was simple, enjoyable, and easy to follow. We were also very happy to see that the words stay up long enough to read them aloud. With most games, they disappear before you can get to the end of the sentence. I highly recommend this game for families, for all of the reasons listed above. I look forward to trying some of the other games published by this company. I had no idea there were so many.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE QUEEN’S MIRROR AWAY! WOULD’VE SOLVED A LOT OF PROBLEMS Dark Romance Winter Lily is game number eight in the series. Winter Lily is loosely based on the story of Snow White and is told through the eyes of the two main characters Lily, the Princess of Winterhelm, and William the King of Lanceya. Wicked Queen Nivella is having another meeting with her famous mirror wondering what it will take to stop her aging curse so that she can gain eternal youth. The Mirror tells the queen that only the purest heart can break the curse and make her eternally young. Thus starts another of the wonderful Dark Romance games. I could go more into the storyline but I think most of us are familiar with the tale of Snow White but what makes these games so much fun is the viewing of the story as it unfolds and is told by each of the main characters in turn. This is a beautiful game and one that I’ve been waiting to play. I love the fairy tale types of games as most of them are not at dark as some recent games, however, the developer does have a go at adding some darkness to this tale. I love this game and the storyline that has me enjoying each new character I meet along the way. Well, the fairy might be an exception with her high-pitched, squeaky voice that I truly find grating. I think one of my favorite characters is Prospero the alchemist. If you play a lot of Domini games then you will know there is really nothing different to be found in the HOPS. We have the now expected variety with storybook, silhouette, and list types included. Even with nothing new, the HOPS are fun and the items are not so small that I want to rip my eyelashes off as I look through a magnifier to spot them. The puzzles are fun and mostly easy even on the “Hard” setting. The puzzles include a lot of my favorite ones but with 18 of them in the game I am not going to list them. A couple of other reviewers do an excellent job of providing that information for you. As much as I appreciate what they do, I happen to love surprises and would rather figure it all out as I go along and then do a happy dance when I find a puzzle I really like. If you prefer the Collector’s Edition of a game, this one includes various collectibles including Dwarven Artifacts to store in the Dwarven Museum, Chess, Pieces to complete a chessboard, and Lilies that can be used to buy items decorate your Royal Chambers. There are 32 Achievements to earn as well. Other extras include the ability to replay 18 Mini-games and 18 HOPS. There are 15 Wallpapers, Concept Artwork, Music, and Movies. There is a Bonus Chapter and a 54-page Strategy Guide. IMHO, this developer provides excellent value in their CE games with lots of collectibles and other extras to keep us happy. Winter Lily is a wonderful, different and version of the Snow White tale that I have read countless times since childhood. The Dark Romance is a favorite series of mine but there were two games that I really didn’t like all that much. As it stands right now Winter Lily might just be my favorite. Yes I know that many of you will think the game is cookie-cutter but realistically most HOPA and TM games are just that. I happen to be a game addict and it doesn’t bother me overmuch that most games follow a set pattern. In this case the gameplay is fun, the HOPS terrific, and the puzzles fun so I don’t mind the pattern. Even though I believe that Winter Lily is an excellent addition to the Dark Romance series, please try the demo to see if it is a game you will enjoy as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A FAIRLY EASY GAME BUT I LIKED IT I think this is probably my second favorite game in this series, but in my opinion, none of them are as good as the first game, Vampire in Love. I also think this game is far too simplistic, I played in the Hardcore Mode, and not once was it necessary for me to consult the SG, because I didn't get stuck, or not know what to do next. I was also able to earn all of the Achievements, one after another. There are 5 Chapters plus a Bonus Chapter in the Collector's Edition version, and each chapter is fairly long. If you like a lot of CE bling, Domini Games always includes several different collectibles, I just wish this game included Morphing Objects. Here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either, is right for you: Queen Nivella has been cursed to age at a wicked rate (me too, curse that princess!) The all revealing mirror has confirmed her diagnosis, wrinkleitis and acute grayhair-syndrome with a touch of baggyskinepidermis. Like most evil witches, the Queen has many powers, she can turn an ordinary dwarf into a stone zombie servant, but she's powerless against mother nature, <sigh>, aren't we all. But wait! If the Queen acts now, she can get two problems solved for the price of one, at the low low cost of only one very young, beautiful princess. Not just any princess, but a princess with a pure heart, (which is almost impossible to find nowadays) a princess the Queen thought she had disposed of long ago, Princess Lily of Winterhelm. There's just one teeny tiny problem....Princess Lily has caught the eye of a very charming man, who just so happens to be King William of Lanceya! Ladies and Gentlemen, I do believe Dark Romance is back on track with this beautiful adaptation of Snow White! This is the only series I know of that successfully incorporates the feature of playing as both characters, switching back and forth between Princess Lily and King William. In the Collector's Edition version, the bling is plentiful, with hidden Dwarven Artifacts, hidden Chess Pieces and collectible Lily's that allow you to upgrade the Royal Chambers, and there are missing Journal Notes to collect as well. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, and some of them are actually challenging! There are Keywords in Sentence finds, Interactive List finds, Silhouetted Shape finds and a newer style that requires you to adjust slider bars to align sections of sketches together. There is an alternate Mach 3 game available as well. The Mini Games are entertaining for the most part, and most of them are available in an Easy or Hard difficulty mode. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Assemble the image by swapping sections of the disc shaped puzzle. 2) Move animal sections to a highlighted square to match the animal tile to the squares with matching outlines. 3) Land the dial on the correct symbol shown in the clue by choosing the number of moves and the direction of the dial. 4) Shoot down the chains by using 3 directional levers to align 3 sections of the cross-hairs over each chain. Then press the button when the horizontal and vertical bars are in the green zone. 5) Swap adjacent tiles to complete the image. 6) Recreate the symbols shown in the clue by clicking to fill in sections of the board. 7) Find 3 hidden shapes and then place the correct fragments into the snowflake, for each path taken in the forest. 8) Prepare a potion by following the recipe in the correct order. 9) Select arrow buttons on each column and row to place chips correctly according to the clue shown. 10) Move tokens along the tracks to their correct place. 11) Move the symbols to match the image on the clue, select discs to rotate select frames to swap tokens.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from King, Princess, Fairy, Dwarves, and Wicked Witch-Queen ... They are all rolled up together in a tale rumored to be a take off on Snow White, off being the key word. You play as both Princess Lily and King William, alternating between the two lead characters as in earlier Dark Romance games. Good stuff: HOPs with a Match-3 alternative, puzzles, and a story of sorts. Bad stuff: I was hoping that the SE would be more tolerable than the CE. No. If another reviewer hadn't pointed out that this is meant to be a take-off on Snow White, I wouldn't have known that. And apparently it is possible to make a fairy tale be really annoying and this is the one for me. The Wicked Queen is over the top, the two main characters are just too much all together. Lily is supposed to be hiding out in fear of her life and opens the door at the first knock. King William seems to be unable to function in his hero role - He enters a "secret" passage that not only the guards, but wicked Queen Nivella all know about. He gets to the end and walks right into the Queen's henchman and is again imprisoned by the evil Queen. The Fairy has an irritating high pitched voice and is just too, too precious. The alchemist is once again a magician rather than an alchemist. He has to have a special potion found for him to "recover" from his last experiment and then has Lily concoct the curse cure because he is still stiff from his mistake. As soon as she is done, he turns into a large bird and flies off with the aid for William. Stiffness must not apply to wings. I felt as though I'd stumbled over a middle school game. Everything, including the color palette, was over the top and over-wrought. The running back and forth was seemingly endless and no one really thought this thru in development. Even at the lower price for an SE, this game is just not worth it! Please play the demo and judge for yourself.
