Dark Parables: The Match Girl's Lost Paradise Collector's Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really sweet story! I loved the story for this game. The ending was a little unclear but that didn't take away from the rest of the story. Even if you don't really care about games like this, I'd say this one is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Hidden Object Game I loved this game from the beginning to the end! The graphics and colors are beautiful! The music was appropriate for every scene and quite calming at times, I loved it. There was nothing about this game I didn't like. This is my favorite game so far. I will play this game again. And I am not giving away anything. Buy the game, you will enjoy it!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Well-Fractured Fairytale Another "fractured fairytale" in a favorite series! This one involves a twist on one of Hans Christian Anderson's darkest tales and one of my least favorite ones, the Little Match Girl. There are several allusions to the original story, the best of which involves a doll sitting on a park bench surrounded by burnt-out matches that will escape people who've never read the story but tug at those who have. That said, this is an all-new story with the Girl now a magic-wielding villainess of sorts. And at the very end a nod to the original resolution (enough said, no spoilers here). Pros: interesting plot if a bit convoluted. We play as The Detective once more, obviously well-known to several of the various characters, which is pretty amusing. Excellent graphics, smooth game play, a very necessary map. HO scenes are a bit repetitive but nicely laid out. Puzzles are quite good with some original twists, a little on the easy side but with two that require considerable ingenuity to figure out the rules and, unfortunately, with no help on that in sight. Generous amount of game play with chapter markers, including the bonus game. Cons: the Match Girl's voice is one of those awful frequency-pushed adult voices that sounds for all the world like Alvin And The Chipmunks. For heaven's sake, hire youth voice actors! They need work too. Certain of the many interactions between her and The Detective were amusing, some simply painful. Volume control was a little uneven, especially with one of the monsters. Overall, a nice offering in the series with plenty of play. Perhaps a little dark for juvenile players. I loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I'd been a little disappointed by a few of the previous Dark Parables games recently. But, this game was wonderful! Good length, with an engaging storyline. Especially if you've played other Dark Parables games. As always the artwork was beautiful and the HOPs, while not difficult were artistic masterpieces. The voiceovers and music fit with the game well, and in several places added to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE ANSWERS YOU SEEK ARE RIGHT HERE IN THE MATCH GIRL'S GARDEN The Match Girl lived in fear nearly her entire life. Her Grandmother taught her to forgive those who treated her poorly, even her abusive drunken father who fell to pieces after her mother disappeared! But the tides have changed now, she's no longer that frightened little girl who sold matches in her father's shop. Some say she's an evil forest witch casting spells of sorcery to grant peoples wishes and desires. Others say she has just Lost her way to her garden Paradise! When I first discovered the Dark Parable series, there were already 4 games released, so I started with the original (scroll down for the series list in order) I was probably into the third chapter by the time I discovered the first Cursed Object. Sure, I was fairly new to the HOPA genre, but the reason I didn't "see" the Cursed Object was because of the geniuses programmers and game designers of Blue Tea! The first time you would visit a scene, the Cursed Object wasn't Cursed! No matter how long you stared at an object, it just wouldn't morph because it required an action to be taken in a different scene, a scene you hadn't yet unlocked. It may be 3-4 scenes later in fact, and you had no idea which action would trigger the Morph and in which scene! How cool does that sound? FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY BLUE TEA ABANDONED THIS FEATURE? (caps in case they are reading this review) When Blue Tea made a come-back with the Eipix Production Team financing their work, I thought the non-linear cursed objects would surely return now that they had no financial worries, but I was disappointed, and I'm even more disappointed that they have chosen to overlook several pleas from several Dark Parable fans to return to their roots to offer the feature that THEY created in the first place! To my knowledge, no other developer has offered this incredible feature in their games, if they have, please let me know in your review or at pf because I WILL purchase that game sight unseen! The Hidden Object Scenes or all Fragmented Object Scenes or FROG's, made famous by Blue Tea Games. These are the ONLY hidden object scenes I've ever found to be challenging. Nobody is able to blend objects into the scene like these devs can! I wish there were more FROG scenes in this game, I actually anticipated unlocking new locations because I wanted another opportunity to find more fragments. If you aren't familiar with Blue Tea style FROGS, you may not like them at first because they are so much different than the normal HOG's. There are 3 sections located at the bottom with pictures of several fragmented objects to search for. As each fragment is found, that object will become opaque. Once you have found all fragments in a section those fragments will join together to show that you have completed that section. Once all 3 fragmented objects are completed, the 3 sections will join together to become an inventory item that you will need to proceed. Many devs have attempted this unique style, but Blue Tea perfected it back in 2010! (now if we could just bring back the non-linear cursed objects I'd be one Happy Camper) The Mini-Games were good but could be better, for me they seemed rather easy to solve and are mostly the same puzzles we've done a thousand times, but they do have fairly good instructions. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter before and after the demo: 1-Guide gems in a dual screen maze to the top using individual directional arrows. 2-Swap triangular tiles to complete the image. 3-Rotate the circles to complete the scene. 4-Arrange the items to complete each character's activity. 5-Interact with the scenes decorations and place trumpets into their matching symbols. 6-Collect the gold from each character. 7-Select the center button to match the animal with the cylinder. 8-Select the button each time the slider crosses over the red marks. 9-Use red arrows to pan and green arrows to focus to find all symbols. This Collector's Edition version has 8 Wallpapers, 6 Concept Art pictures, 6 Music Soundtracks, 9 Movie Video Cutscenes, 17 re-playable Mini-Games, 20 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, 13 Achievements to earn, 20 Morphing Cursed Objects to earn, 28 Parable Pieces (collect 4 pieces to unlock each Parable 5 Main/2 Bonus Chapter: The Little Match Girl-The Star Coins-The Forest Witch-The Ominous Beauty-The Second Prince's Revenge-Fire of Youth-The King's New Clothes) 6 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fragmented in more ways than one Based on the finished game with bonus material In Denmark our Detective follows the match girl Giselle. I found pieces for six parables (two in the bonus chapter) and 20 morphing objects. The music is pleasant. I found flaws- The guide said 6 chapters but the game had 9 chapters. I found two puzzles with no instructions and the guide didn't help. But one puzzle is replayed and has instructions there. I had one place that paused itself and I turned it back on. Besides these things, I loved the game. The bonus is a prequel called The King's Fiery Clothes. Has replays on 17 mini-games, 20 lovely fragmented hops, 9 video, 6 music and 8 wallpapers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A DARK PARABLES GAME THAT IS EXCELLENT AND CLOSE TO WHAT I LOVED IN THE ORIGINALS Dark Parables The Match Girl’s Lost Paradise is the fifteenth game in the series and is the eighth one developed by EIPIX with the first seven games coming from Blue Tea Games who is the original developer of the series. Although this game was completely developed by EIPIX, it is in my humble opinion one of the closest to the original series aside from The Little Mermaid and The Purple Tide. After a rash of very short games that have only three or four chapters I am finding this game to be quite long with six chapters plus the Bonus Game. I have played for several hours and still have quite a long way to go in the game. As I played the game I was swept away by the touches that reminded me of what I loved in the original series. Although the HOPS might not have had the complete glitzy appeal of the originals they were close enough that I truly enjoyed them. The Puzzles are great and started off with a mechanical maze puzzle where you move the pieces by selecting arrows and moving a central bar. I found more HOPS early in the game than I did puzzles but I found both the HOPS and the Puzzles enjoyable and well done. I think the instructions for solving the Puzzles were a bit better in this game and it was easier to understand what needed to be done. Since I don’t believe in giving away all of the details of the game I will only say that if you loved the original Blue Tea developed Dark Parables, then I think you should enjoy The Match Girl’s Lost Paradise. What EIPIX brings to the table with these games is a functionality that I found missing in the originals. I was never able to get the maps to work correctly even when I was told they would be “jump” type where I could immediately move to another location. I also find the storylines a bit more compelling. If you happen to prefer the CE version of the game this one has morphing objects and collectible parables that are located in various scenes in the game. There are also the other goodies to be found that we all love in CEs such as Wallpapers, Concept Art, Achievements, Music, a Bonus Game, a Strategy Guide and we also get to replay HOPS and Puzzles. In the past year or two I have fairly much lost interest in the Dark Parables series as I missed the beauty of the original games. That being said, I must say that EIPIX has done an excellent job with creating The Match Girl’s Lost Paradise. As always I recommend that you try the demo to see what you think about the game but I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bravo!! Eipix is continuing to let Blue Tea take the reigns and the result has saved this series that is very dear to me. I have played all the games DP series over and over and still have fun with every play and it made me very sad when it started to take a nose dive after game 7. But have no fear Dark Parables is in the process of a triumphant return!! The only issue I have now is where is my teaser at the end of the game for the next addition to this awesome series?
