The Old Town located beneath the ruins of Grak Kingdom has been rapidly turning into salt in the past few days. This salt-transmutation appears to be caused by a mysterious species of white dragonflies. The Princess of Grak Kingdom went missing a hundred years ago. The Grak Palace also inexplicably collapsed at around the same time. However, a girl who might be the Princess has been sighted in the Old Town recently. You (Detective) are requested to find the Princess and solve all the mysteries behind the salt-transmutation. As you approach the ruins, you are attacked by an abnormally strong man with hostile intent. With the help of two sisters imbued with special powers, you are narrowly saved from peril. As you delve deeper in the case, you find hints that this mystery might be linked to a case that you investigated long ago...

Customer Reviews
Dark Parables: Return of the Salt Princess is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from She's a Bit Salty! You're summoned to a town where a princess is missing and covering the world in deadly salt. Can you save her and find out the truth behind her lineage?! Blue Tea brings it again!!! Like other reviewers stated, this is reminiscent of the earlier Dark Parable Games. The world is HUGE! At first I didn't like not having the teleporting map but after a while it felt like a nice challenge. Even in this standard edition, there were lots of goodies to find, like fragments of fairytales and morphing objects. The hidden object scenes in these games are of course always filled with beautiful shards of jewels and the puzzles were lots of fun! We get a sad ending, but honestly, the story was very gripping! I truly enjoyed this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done adventure tale As the final chapters were solved, the search for answers and solutions intensifies. I don't like to rely on hints, but the guide was essential when I was confounded. The map is more of a chart, because I was unable to jump within scenes. By exploring each new scene, their creative genius is more apparent. As with life, this is a rewarding adventure, with lots of unknowns, some clear choices, and some that are not so obvious. Well done, to all the talent that collaborated on this project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE SALT PRINCESS BRINGS BACK A LOT OF MEMORIES AND THE DARK PARABLES THAT I LOVE The Dark Parables series returns with game number fourteen in the series with the first seven games developed by Blue Tea Games after which the subsequent games were all developed by Eipix. Call me old school but Return of the Salt Princess is everything that I loved about the original games that had gorgeous graphics, beautiful FROG (fragmented object game) scenes, and excellent puzzles. You once again take on the role of the fairy tale detective and this time you are out to find the missing princess of the Grak Kingdom. I’m not going to bother with the storyline synopsis since others do it quite well and with far more humor than I, suffice it to say that you are in for a great time as you track down the princess and find your way around the old kingdom. I’m quite surprised by this game because it emulates the earlier games so well that I am not really sure if the game is a work shared by the two developers (Blue Tea and Eipix) or if maybe Blue Tea has taken up the reins once again. Perhaps it is all Eipix and they followed the original formula, but whatever the case may be, I love the result. The game is authentic right down to the map that no longer seems to be a jump map (at least it doesn’t work on my computer) which is the one complaint I had with the original games and now with this one. The game also reverts to the old style of offering only three modes of gameplay – Easy, Normal, and Hard with no other options such as turning off the tutorial. All minor for me since I’ve got what I like the most with the great graphics, FROGS, and puzzles. The CE version of the game includes the following extras: 20 Cursed Objects, 20 Parable Pieces, 58 Pop-up Notes, and 24 Special Items to find as you play the game. Other extras include 26 Achievements, 12 Wallpapers, 24 Concept Artwork, 5 Music Tracks, 6 Movies, 9 Puzzles to play, Bonus Game Moonlight Romance, and the 57-page Strategy Guide. I love this game mostly because it is so much like the original games in the series. Although I think the gorgeous artwork and the FROGS are terrific I do miss the special touches that EIPIX added with their technical expertise. I find it more difficult to navigate the game and miss having a jump map as well as the option to select a custom mode of gameplay. That being said, this game is perfect in every other way and it brings back the beauty of the Dark Parables games. I purchased the game as soon as it was available but as always, please try the demo to see if Return of the Salt Princes is a game you will enjoy. Following is a list of other games in the series. Happy Gaming! Curse of Briar Rose Mar 2010 (Blue Tea Games) The Exiled Prince Feb 2011 Rise of the Snow Queen Dec 2011 The Red Riding Hood Sisters Sep 2012 The Final Cinderella May 2013 Jack and the Sky Kingdom Feb 2014 Ballad of Rapunzel Jun 2014 The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide Nov 2014 (first game from EIPIX) Queen of Sands May 2015 Goldilocks and the Fallen Star Nov 2015 The Swan Princess and The Dire Tree Jul 2016 The Thief and the Tinderbox Sep 2016 Requiem for the Forgotten Shadow Feb 2017

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this game This game reminds me of The Exiled Prince and The Curse of Briar Rose. Not just referencing the characters in those two but having elements of them that I absolutely loved. Return of the Salt Princess has beautiful graphics. Interesting puzzles. I love hidden and morphing objects and Salt Princes has HOS more like the two games I already mentioned. Kudos to the creators for giving us such a beautiful and enjoyable game. Please keep them coming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly a 5 Star Game This is my first Dark Parables game and I am delighted it is a series! The storyline is superb, detailed but not boring, and as the title of the series indicates, not your usual parable. As others have commented, the FROGS are a delight, and I would love to see more of these. My preference is adventure vs hidden object but to me, FROGS fit the storyline more than the usual HOPS. The graphics are exceptional. Scene after scene, I was struck by the detail and most often, I just stayed in a scene to admire it, searching out more than what I needed for the story. And the music that accompanies the beauty of this game is just as intricate. Indeed, a pleasure to listen to all on its own. My reviews are based upon completed play of the game; as always, try the demo first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going on a limb... I'm going out on a limb here, but I would say that this is probably the best of the Dark Parables games. If you're already a fan, I would highly recommend buying this game. Then settle in. You get what you pay for here. This isn't a game you'll blow through in two hours. If you're new to the series, this probably isn't where you want to start. However, if you're simply looking for a standalone game, this game fits the bill. If you're interested in following the overall story line you can play the games in order, although that's certainly not necessary. Part 1 - Curse of Briar Rose Part 2 - The Exiled Prince Part 3 - Rise of the Snow Queen Part 4 - The Red Riding Hood Sisters Part 5 - The Final Cinderella Part 6 - Jack and the Sky Kingdom Part 7 - Ballad of Rapunzel Part 8 - The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide Part 9 - The Queen of Sands Part 10 - Goldilocks and the Fallen Star Part 11 - The Swan Princess and the Dire Tree Part 12 - The Thief and the Tinderbox Part 13 - Requiem for the Forgotten Shadow Part 14 - Return of the Salt Princess Part 15 - The Match Girl’s Lost Paradise Part 16 - Portrait of the Stained Princess

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Architecturally good Hidden Object Game I just love the fairy tale atmosphere and the graphics are so enjoyable to look at. I also enjoy the hidden object sections where you have to find the missing parts instead of searching for a named object. I always enjoy the Princesses adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Dark Parables we love is back After a few disappointing entries we finally got the real Dark Parables back. Good storyline, with references to earlier games, good pace. good visuals, nice FROGS. Everything we used to love and which somehow seemed lost is here.
