Customer Reviews
Dark Parables: The Exiled Prince is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 158.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Frog Can Kiss More Than One Princess! This is a Blue Tea beauty from 2011, but I still pull it out and play it now and again because it's one of my favorites. Set in Germany, it's the tale of the immortal frog prince and how he keeps starting his life over and over again with new princesses (I'll let which one's be a surprise), only to lose them to old age. I was enchanted by the shrines he created for each one of his lovely brides. Now our fairy tale detective must help stop the curse! This game is 7 years old, so it doesn't have the fancier bells and whistles of the new games, like customization or teleportation maps. You will have hints but they only help you with the numerous fragmented hidden object scenes. A couple of times I did need help finding something (like the oar) but was able to look it up on the Big Fish Forum. Once completed, you will be able to play again in "hard mode" (no hints or skips), which will unlock a couple of doors you missed the first time around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and sophisticated I purchased this game in 2012, which, I guess, makes it an "old game," but a great one. I call several of these older games elegant (Shaolin Mystery: Jade Dragon Staff; Return to Ravenhurt; Dire Grove, to name a few) because the graphics are beautifully detailed, and the music is gorgeous. It's an easy paced casual game with great puzzles that are doable unique, and fun. Relaxing, with a theme that plays on the fairy tale "The Frog Prince." With it's mysterious atmosphere and haunting score, this is a very enjoyable game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging Game I really enjoyed playing this game! It involves several fairy tale characters and you play as the detective looking for the Chancellor's daughter and her bodyguard. This is the firs Dark Parables game I've played and will certainly be playing the others. The graphics are excellent. The voice overs and ambient sound is good. I muted the background music, which annoys me in every game. The FROGs were fun to play and some of the objects were hard to find. The mini games were fun, but relatively easy (which was fine with me). I really enjoyed the story line and the multiple locations to visit during. There is a lot of back and forth to various locations. There is a map to-do list. The map is not interactive, but you will need it at various points during the game. The map can be a bit confusing, but once you understand how it is laid out, it is highly usable. I recommend this game and look forward to playing the other DP games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Dark Parable Game I have been a "fishy" since 2007 and have bought and played many many games from Big Fish. I have had 5 of the Dark Parable games downloaded but forgot to play them. I LOVED this game. Graphics are well done, storyline is perfect and music is relaxing. I am now playing Rise of the Snow Queen and then all the others. I hope that they keep making Dark Parable Games. I am saving Cinderella for last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyed the second in the series as much as I did the first one This one was loosely based on the frog prince fairytale where you as a detective must find out what happened to the Chancellor's daughter after she went for a stroll on the Exiled Prince Path in Black Forest. Of course you have to figure out the story and location of the exiled prince also. The hidden object screnes are all Fragmented Object Games (FROG - appropriate name for this particular game) where you collect items that are used in various ways -- usually keys, objects used as keys, or objects used in puzzles that usually unlock doors to open up new locations. The map is not interactive but shows where you are, sometimes where hidden object scenes to be done are, and usually where a completed collection of objects may be used. I found the story engaging and well written and the music was very easy to listen to while playing. The graphics were excellent being clear and easily viewed even in dark scenes. As with the first episode, there are a lot of places to visit many being just once for an iten needed later. There are some cursed objects to be found which apparently has something to do with the hint system. Another winner and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun with a Frog (Pun Intended) The Exiled Prince (2011) is the second in the Dark Parables series by Blue Tea Games in which you play a detective. In TEP you're trying to discover what happened to the Frog Prince. Overall, it's a fun, somewhat challenging and story-strong FROG-heavy game with some interesting but not difficult puzzles. The Dark Parables series are all Fragmented Object Games (FROG) where you collect relics through FROG scenes that are then used in various ways -- usually they're either keys, objects that can be used as keys (returning a scepter might make a statue move, for example), or objects to be used in puzzles (which then unlock doors). By collecting the objects and figuring out the puzzles you unlock new locations which will then lead to more objects and puzzles. The provided map isn't interactive but will clearly show where you are, where any unlocked hidden object scenes are, where the objective needs to be completed once you have all the required items, etc. Unlike the later games in the series a portal isn't provided to get from one end to the other so be prepared to do some wandering (if you use the map carefully this isn't difficult to navigate)! This is a game heavy on the FROG scenes with a reasonable smattering of puzzles but the tasks themselves are fairly straightforward. True, you might collect an object not used until an hour of gameplay later but usually it's fairly obvious what object is used where when you do eventually come across the right place. If you're looking for adventure/task oriented gameplay you might want to try the Awakening series; if you're looking for a lot of hidden object scenes then this is definitely the game for you. The object scenes themselves are fairly complex, though not interactive, and require a keen eye as the objects may not be the precise colour or size they appear in the search box display. They WILL always resemble the picture but the variation can make the scenes difficult if you're not very attentive to detail. The actual puzzles range from very easy to a bit tricky with nothing too complicated or difficult for an intermediate player. The game, like the others in the series, provides shiny extra bits like finding cursed objects (to speed up hint time) and parable disks (little mini background stories for the in-game characters). All-in-all if, like me, you really enjoy FROG scenes then this is an awesome game. The graphics really make the FROG scenes with plenty of detail to admire (and hide fragments in!). If you like this game you might want to try Dark Parables: Rise of the Snow Queen (or vice versa). I gave it 5 stars above but I'd rate it at more 41/2 stars out of 5. P.S. Keep in mind that unless you're playing on Hard mode you won't find the frog's crown and unlock that location but the game is perfectly playable even without that side bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Parable The Dark Parables series are a ton of fun for my 5-year-old son and I to play together, and we especially enjoyed the story of the Exiled Prince. There is a nice spooky fairytale atmosphere that isn't too much for my son, but also isn't boring or cheesy for me. The challenge level, graphics, and soundtrack are all very good. The game does not at any point become tedious, as many HOGs do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking Graphics After trying many games and figuring out what I do and don't like, I started compiling a list of favorites and finding out who made those. I had read nice things about Blue Tea before I tried their games, and I wasn't disappointed a bit in the level of quality. What charmed me about this game is not only the stunning images, but also the clever storyline, which integrates characters from different fairy tales. I had no idea that... Nevermind, I won't spoil it for you. :-) The soundtrack was also lovely and provided a fitting backdrop to a fairy tale with an air of mystery, not annoyingly chipper some other "fairy music". After enjoying this game so much, I put Blue Tea at the top of my "game developers to watch" list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed this one The hidden object scenes were cleverly crafted and the puzzles not too hard to enjoy. This was not as repetitive as some, though there was a little bit of doubling back. Beautiful art/graphics. Unlocked the "hard" mode and will play it a little later on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-rounded game I really enjoyed this game! The story line was very interesting, the game was really pretty, the sound quality was great, and the game itself was challenging. The random mystery objects in the scenes and the interactive map were great add-ons to the game which made the game itself more enjoyable. Definitely a great buy and Collector's Edition is definitely the way to go with this game.
