Whispered Secrets: Ripple of the Heart Collector's Edition is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from IS GRANDMA GOING TO THE DARK SIDE? Completed Game a little over 6.0 Hours (including completion of all puzzles & Bonus Chapter) 18 Main Game Scene Locations +6 CE Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner-Intermediate I didn't think GrandMa put forth as much effort in this game as they did the previous game Morbid Obsession. With that being said, the storyline was very interesting even though you will probably figure out the plot from the first opening cutscene. There aren't really any surprises and the gameplay is the same ole, same ole...but still better and less cookie-cutter than the other two major developers have been offering lately. Gadgets/Helpers/Outcome Option: There are no helpers, well technically, the Fox helps you. In true GrandMa Studios fashion, there is an infamous Amulet Gadget that is used to search for hidden Symbols. Collectibles & Morphing Objects (CE version only) There are 48 Collectible Envelopes, one simple, and one morphing, as well as 20 Zoom Zone Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces that allow you to assemble a Jigsaw Puzzle once all pieces have been collected. You must find all of the collectibles to unlock the Secret Chapter "The Source" which is a Mini-game, but if you missed a collectible or jigsaw piece, you can return to the scene by going to the CE "Collectible" tab in the Extra's menu where you can click on any of the collectibles or jigsaws that you missed, to be taken to the scene where you can search for the missed collectible or jigsaw...Thank you Granny...this is how it should be! Hidden Object Scenes: There are 13 Main Hidden Object Scenes and several Zoom Zone Mini-HOPs +2 in the CE Bonus Chapter. There is an alternate Match 3 game but this is the second worse Match 3 games in HOPA history, (right behind the big D-games) The tiles are round marbles which I actually liked, but there were hardly any matches available, I literally had to stare intently to find a simple Match 3, and there certainly wasn't an opportunity for any match larger than a Match 4! Because there were no large matches, I didn't get any bonuses or power-ups...assuming they were even available, which I highly doubt. So the really cool round and colorful marbles were just kind of pointless and not fun when you can't find the smallest of matches!!! As for the Hidden Object Scenes, there are Interactive List Finds, Multiples of the Same Object, and Silhouetted Shape Finds. There is also an Amulet-associated HOP where you are tasked with finding Hidden Symbols using the Amulet. Mini-Games: There are 17 Mini-Games +9 in the CE Bonus Chapter. Some, but not all of the puzzles have an Easy or Hard difficulty mode option available. The mini-games were doable on the first attempt in most cases and for the most part, were fun although they are the usual GrandMa Studios mini-games. The mini-games include arranging weights on a clock to equal the various times shown, swapping tiles to create an image, navigating maps by placing directional arrows, connecting dots, retracing shapes, and of course, lock mechanism puzzles galore. Bonus Chapter: (CE version only) "The Cracks" turns back the hands of the clock as you play Ursula trying to help Wolf hide the grimoire for safekeeping. This is an average-length chapter that takes place over 8 Scene Locations with an additional 9 Mini-Games, 2 Hidden Object Scenes. You will continue collecting the remaining Collectible Envelopes and the final Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces as well. GrandMa does allow you to return to the scenes to pick up any missed collectibles or Jigsaw Pieces which is required to open the Hidden Chapter entitled The Source, which is basically a Mini-Game. Collector's Edition Extra's: 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art Pictures, 23 Movie Cutscene Videos, 8 Music Soundtracks ?, 9 Replayable Mini-Games?, 12 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 12 Achievements, 48 Collectible Objects (1 simple, 1 morphing per scene) 20 Zoom Zone Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces (used to assemble a Jigsaw Puzzle) 5 Main Chapters (The Shards) +Bonus Chapter (The Cracks) a Hidden Chapter/Mini-Game (The Source) and a Built-In Strategy Guide. You can find my series lists and so much more at my new forum, won't you join us! thewoodsforum.boards.net

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jealous Witchy Game Very pleased with all the extras. I like the jigsaw that has a wedding picture you can download. The collectibles were challenging. I waited a long time and realized that only one of the two in the scene morphed. Very good indicator for collectibles and puzzle pieces. The achievements are a stone mural. I didn't like all the puzzles and skipped so I was disappointed not to get the halo crown. They should have had the halo crown for not skipping the hops. I like the replay for movies. The hidden chapter is not a bonus chapter. It's a small mini-game that you match subjects from three pages of a book. It's a beautiful game. I wish they just had the greenhouse or Ellie's room without characters for a wallpaper. The windows are nice looking. I liked all the hops and they are lovely. A couple hops are used more than once. I liked the story. I couldn't get the hairpin puzzle to work from the bonus chapter. I would like it better if they had the finished picture of the puzzles in the guide. Some solutions in the guide didn't help at all. I-The Shards-Main game. II-The Cracks-Bonus Chapter. III-The source-Hidden Chapter (mini-game). It has 5 chapters + bonus chapter + hidden chapter which is a small mini-game. Jigsaw. 48 collectibles envelopes and 20 puzzle pieces. Replay 17 movies, 12 hops, 9 mini-games and 8 music. No screensavers. 10 wallpapers. Concept art. Achievements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HELP A “FOX-Y“ LADY REUNITE WITH HER BEAU REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 5 Chapters Plus 2 Bonus Chapters – Strategy Guide: 29 pages (My Time – 8 Hours) STORY: Here comes the bride! Well not – yet! Which girl will make it down the aisle? You are off to visit your friend, Wolf in the town of Flusstal to attend the wedding of his son, Uwe, to a local girl, Ellie. However, upon entering Flusstal Woods, you are bombarded with black magic, being hurled at you by the witch Urusla. Meet a foxy lady, Agnes, a woman who was transformed into a fox by this evil witch. She is Uwe’s true love, but Ursula has erased his memory of her for her own nefarious purposes. This witch is out for revenge! Vanquish this witch's power as you help Agnes transform into her human form and reunite with her true love. OPINION: Do not let the short strategy guide fool you. This is a long game, and one which I enjoyed playing for the most part. A lot of work went into creating it. I found it an easy play with a good pace throughout and did not experience any technical glitches or difficulties. However, I did find a few elements which I disliked about the game. However, this is a matter of personal preference on my part. There is a lot of travelling to-and-fro, searching for inventory items and fewer HOP scenes and mini-games than in most other HOPA games. I prefer to have more activities within a game. I think the story is a little too complex for a HOPA game with too many characters and too much history. Less is more and I think that applies to this game. I got tired of reading the excessive number of stories and the history concerning this town. I think the game would have been better without the overabundance of characters and the numerous subplots and stories. There are two collectibles - envelopes (some morphing ones) and jigsaw puzzle pieces. I found some of them difficult to locate and some of the envelopes did not look like envelopes to me. The same can be said for the jigsaw puzzle pieces. Some were difficult to see from the way they were positioned within the scene. I like the fact there is an indicator bar at the left of the screen which indicates how many of collectibles are within the scene and whether all have been collected. I wish more developers would provide this feature. There are two (2) bonus chapters; however, the second bonus chapter is just a mini-game to provide closure to the story behind the game. MECHANICS: • Four (4) levels of play including a customized version. • 15 achievements. • Collect 20 jigsaw pieces to complete a jigsaw puzzle at the end of the game. • Collect 48 collectibles. (envelopes) – some are morphing. • 10 wallpapers along with concept art, music, and video sequences • Replay 12 HOP scenes and 9 mini-games. BONUS CHAPTER 1: It is a prequel. Play a young Ursula before she became an evildoer. Wolf asks for her help to stop his dad from practicing black magic. As Ursula you are off to help Wolf locate a grimoire and hide it away in a cave so it can no longer be used for nefarious purposes. However, when you meet one of the original First Dwellers, an evil magician named Manfred, you will engage in some deal making with a surprising outcome. Continue collecting collectibles. There are nine (9) mini-games and two (2) HOP scenes. The chapter is short; however, it does add clarification to the main story. I feel the puzzles are more creatively designed this chapter than in the main game. To me this chapter is worthy of a collector’s edition classification. BONUS CHAPTER 2: it is a sequel and provides closure to the game. Play the detective and finally end the black magic generated by the grimoire. There is only one activity – a puzzle which seals the grimoire so it can never be used again. HOP SCENES: There are fifteen (15) HOP scenes plus numerous mini-HOP scenes with six (6) to eleven (11) items to be located. Twelve (12) of these can be replayed at the end of the game. They are interactive requiring the player to interact with each scene to remove the items. Most of the scenes are standard lists of items or silhouette. There are some matching scenes as well. Although there is not as much variety as in some other developers’ games, found them creatively designed. There is an optional Match-3 puzzle which can be played instead of the scene. My favorite scene involved searching for people and items within a model of the town of Flusstal. MINI-GAMES: There are twenty-six (26) mini-games, nine (9) of which can be replayed upon completion of the game. They vary in style and difficulty. I feel most are on the easier side. I found none challenging. There is a Rube-Goldberg puzzle in this game. As the player enters a hall, he plays four (4) consecutive puzzles to reach the door to exit the hallway. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE MINI-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Tracing puzzle. Trace two letters on a locket to open it. B. Match-3 puzzle. Connect 3 or more like-colored hands to turn the squares behind them light blue. Connections can be made vertically or horizontally. Tokens must be switched to create the connections. Game is complete when all the squares are turned light blue. Play this puzzle 3 times within the game. C. Maze puzzle. Slide town landmarks along paths into their proper position based upon a map of the town. D. Connection puzzle. Connect the dots on a bear as per a given diagram. E. Balance puzzle. Move the detective across a bridge using a pole to maintain balance. Click on the bridge on the right or left to maneuver in that direction. BONUS CHAPTER 1 F. Rube-Goldberg Puzzle 1. Lock puzzle. Press down 5 tumblers with a bobby pin. Release when they begin to shake. 2. Sequence puzzle. Repeat a given sequence with tiles on a floor by pressing down the tiles in the proper order. 3. Sequence puzzle. Deactivate electric rods as per a given sequence. 4. Block puzzle. Move blocks to create a path for a key to move from the left to a keyhole on the right. G. Maze puzzle. Move a mouse through a maze in the dark collecting 3 leaves to remove beetles in your path.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Into The Woods! Normally, a new Whispered Secrets game has me glued to my computer. While this title boasts some of the same great features of previous games-- good puzzles, good HO scenes, subtle morphing objects and puzzle pieces-- I'm honestly not sure what the story line was after it's all said and done. If you're in it for the mini games, special features, etc then this is a good game. If the story line is more important to you, then give the demo a shot and go from there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Ok.. I give it 3.8 The game is well put together in a sense that there is not too much of the obvious stuff that is rampant in other games. The story is not original, we have seen it many times, bad witch in the forest, using a maiden's love for her betrothed to gain power and use it against a town. Boring over used subject=somewhat boring game. Game play is a bit more original, but I found it a bit schizophrenic. Several times I had to go to the guide to figure out what it wants, only to find that I was missing an object that I had clicked on repeatedly in a scene I had gone into several times and found nothing (I am not a novice--I am not sure if this is a glitch or over sensitivity of the pointer). Same happened in the the HOPs. And these hops are hateful; tiny or dark objects, ended up just clicking blindly. Even though there is a match 3 to do instead, and even though I usually enjoy them, the match 3 is not the least bit fun. But what I actively disliked was the amulet and the necessity to search for rune-type symbols, overused in many games. It is a well drawn game, the colors are good and sound is excellent, but it is a fussy game that irritated me at every turn. The game itself is better than most of the Whispered Secrets games, and in the past I have really disliked them, never replayed a single one. I would give this game 4 stars if the items were not so small and dark (especially on the item storage at the bottom of the screen, I needed a magnifying glass to make out some of them). It is no where near 5 stars, just on the glitchy play alone. If you like a fussy, somewhat dark game, the repetitive story, lots of extra objects to find (envelopes and puzzle pieces), animal characters, and a fair bit of tediousness (hey, lots of people do...) this game is for you. I do recommend it as long as you know that is the type of game it is!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'd Rather Play Than Read I didn't care much for this game. Doesn't seem like a bad one, it just doesn't have a fun feel to it. It started off with a missing zipper pull but, thankfully, was quickly remedied with a stray safety pin. The pin and fire hydrant were out of place for this time period, one of those quirks that are ever-present in games. There was an over-abundance of reading and too much back and forth which annoyed me. They interfere with the flow of the adventure. Using the gimmick to find symbols was a time waster. For the first time since forever I just wanted to skip the HOPs, which are always my favorite in HOPA games. The alternative Match 3 helped me to quickly finish the HO scenes. The M3 has a gauge that shows your progress. There are 3 indicator bars that keep track of the collectibles and achievements. I think all games should have this very helpful feature. Graphics are nice and clear, the colors rich and appropriate. The scenes were dark, filled with mild clutter to hinder your search a bit while looking for useful items. The locations for the most part were indicative of the time period, most of the demo scenes were outdoors. The few characters in the demo were non-descript. The voices weren't bad but I expected to hear more of a dialect. The map was pretty basic and the Hint took you to necessary locations, which helped take the edge off the travelling. I encountered quite a few puzzles in the demo, just a few HOPs. None of them stood out in fun or challenge, the HO scenes were dark and uninteresting. I have no feelings one way or another about the fox. She didn't evoke any emotion which was kind of surprising, since I'm usually drawn to animal characters because I love all critters, real or otherwise. Except for a couple, I've always enjoyed Grandma games. But this one didn't incite any excitement, curiosity or desire to continue the adventure. The storyline became complex with additional stories, I was tired of reading about the town's history. From all the reading, I assume there are many other characters to meet along the way that tie into this mysterious tale. But I don't have the desire to stick around to find out what's going on. If I had been able to experience more of the game, maybe my rating would be different. The demo was quite limiting. Without a doubt, this game will bring lots of fun to the table for fans of Whispered Secrets. But for me, it just didn't hit the spot. This CE is light on the collectibles, HOPs and games, and few are replayable. It doesn't have enough, IMO, to justify the CE price. Seems suitable for all ages, anyone can enjoy by choosing which challenge best fits your skill level.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Turn up your brightness I love this series of games, thus was excited to see a new one. I am over an hour into the game and I am soooo confused. I started out going to a wedding, ended up in a forest, then ended up speaking to a talking tree. I thought Uwe was getting married, but no. He's dead. I may have to restart this from the beginning because I am so lost it's senseless to keep playing. The HOS are small and dark. The whole game is on the darkish side. I haven't encountered many puzzles yet, thank goodness. I'll finish this after beginning again eventually and comment on the SE version. As for now, this is only getting 3 stars because grandma put a lot of work into the game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I hated the demo. I couldn't get through the demo. It was just too "busy" with too many little games you had to do before getting anywhere. I am also getting so tired of the same stories and the 1800's characters and backdrops. I like my games on the dark side and I like a good story even with the "Old Timey" backdrop. But ONLY if there is good tale, and good actors. Frankly I didn't stick around long enough to judge the actors, so I can't say anything about it. This one just didn't do anything for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kids Game Same Old Same Old - Review More about BF in General It is very rare that I couldn't even get through the demo. I am so tired of everything being so overly easy and everything is the same with the few developers left at Big Fish. As some others have written lately how often do you need a coin, fire flies, etc. I have been a BF member since June of 2009 and am considering quitting the club. What is the point of BOGO when I cannot even find one game to buy no less two! Get some new blood from some other developers. The last really good game was last year "Lost Lands Redemption CE" as far as imagination (yes the son was a bit irritating but still loved the story and concept). I use to pay full price for some games like Hidden Expedition series as I was so anxious to play them and the last several I didn't even bother to buy. I tired to play them and they were terrible. Big Fish - Have your developers stop using the same cookie cutter gadgets and find some new blood or you are going to loose a long time customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from glitches I am tired of finding games I know I would enjoy and they start glitching before you press play. The top half of the screen just flashes. This has happened with many other games with big fish, games that I would otherwise bought. Amyone else?
Date published: 2021-05-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from glitches I'm with lunatri01's review. My game is doing the same flashing at the top of the screen so did not even get to play. This also happened on another Grandma game. Very annoying to not even be able to play the game.
