Customer Reviews
Dark Parables: Rise of the Snow Queen is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 136.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of splendor to look at... almost too much! The visuals are stunning. The fragmented HOS have a tendency to get a little boring, but they got better as the story progressed. I don't think the player should be penalized five minutes on the hint button for skipping a mini-game while on "casual," but this game is so well made and original that it's worth playing. However, the hint delay may be disabled in "casual" mode because I had no trouble with the hint recharging. I think one either loves it, or they don't. This is most definitely a great game IMO, even though the hint system and map could be a little better. All the Dark Parables are good, and this one is no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another beautiful game from Dark Parables series Loved it! Good combination of different puzzles and HOS on one side and magnificent graphics on the other - beautifully designed locations, clear images and perfect snowy and cold atmosphere - nice music in the background, good voice overs - excellent storyline, you, as a detective, must find missing children who were kidnapped by the Snow Queen. In order to do so you must travel to her Kingdom and discover her plan and what actually lies behind disappearance of numerous kids . - 3 modes in the game: casual, normal and hard - optional tutorial - you don’t have a journal but there is a very useful map that shows your current objectives and areas of interest - hint is recharging fairly quick but if you are skipping puzzles that will disable hint button for 5min - HOS –good, in this case fragmented object scenes, mostly clear, but there are some in which objects are harder to find - so many different puzzles, colorful and fun, I enjoyed every single one of them Definitely 5 stars from me!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A literal feast for the senses I couldn't believe how crisp, clear, and absolutely gorgeous this game's graphics were when I first demo'd it. I just finished playing and boy, was it an experience! There's so much to see and do that I frequently got lost wandering around and through the rooms but, between the walkthrough and the not-always-helpful map, I managed to complete it. I only resorted to the walkthrough late in chapter 7 when the map didn't point out any more objectives or places of interest, and the hint button just kept giving me the "there isn't anything to do here" kind of message that leaves you hanging. The confusion in this game for me was the fact that every room and hallway was so intricately detailed and colorful that I'd forget where I first saw something and the images just sort of melted together in my head. When objectives or places of interest were clearly marked on the map, then navigating there was very easy although the map is not transportive. Hidden objects scenes were in the form of fragmented objects, which are always a nice diversion from the usual word lists that we're so used to seeing. At least the pieces were actually from the objects themselves and not in silhouette form, which I don't like as much. You have to revisit some of the same HO scenes again but you always get new objects to put together. Sparkles indicate both puzzles and HO scenes. The puzzles are varied and fun and all can be skipped. I always play in the easiest mode because I want to move along in the story and I like having the extra help available when I need it. The only glaring blemish on this game is the ridiculously LONG hint button which takes FIVE full minutes to refill! Why should it take so long for the easiest play mode, devs? Oh, there are 20 morphing (called 'cursed') objects to find also. Finding them reduces the refill time for the hint button so I guess that's why they start with five minutes first. It gives you the incentive to actively look for them, although it does slow down the gameplay because they are frequently difficult to see against all the detailed engravings within each scene. There are separate objects to find scattered throughut that when you have collected enough of one kind, a parable opens for you to read. These parables explain the story of how the Snow Queen came to be that way and although they could be more detailed, they do tell the story in fairy tale terms. All the characters were realistically drawn and the animations and voiceovers were outstanding. The music was so unobtrusive that I can't remember it, but the sound effects of the wind and blowing snow were abundant throughout all the outdoor scenes. To me, this game might be a little too difficult for the HO/adventure gamers that are new to this genre, but that's what the hour trial is for so beginners shouldn't take my comment too seriously and just try it out for yourselves. Overall, this game is an exceptional offering from Blue Tea and I look forward to seeing many more games from them in years to come. I just wish we could have helped the poor frog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Parables: Rise of the Snow Queen SE Tales have been passed down for centuries of a Snow Queen who steals children, but when people started spotting the Snow Queen and the village children began disappearing, you have to believe she's real. You are called in to investigate this Queen and hopefully find out what happened to the children. This is an excellent fairy tale with a twist as only Dark Parables can pull off. I will admit I chose the Collectors Edition because of the morphing objects alone, not to mention the collectible parable gems, bonus game and more. The Hidden Object Scenes are unique to the Dark Parables series they are actually Fragmented Objects and when you find all the pieces to all 3 sections, the item will go together to complete a single inventory item such as an axe or emblem. Most of the mini games involve creating a path from one end to the other using the correct number of colored tokens as shown at the top of the board. I highly recommend all of the Dark Parables games, every single game is fantastic, with beautiful graphics and entertaining puzzles, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Dark Parables I have all the dark parables games but this one is the best although there are too many puzzles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Game Wow, this game will keep you guessing about the story line. I didn't want it to end. The artwork is spectacular, the music is perfectly suited to the scenes. The fractured objects are well hidden, but not too hard to see. The morphing objects were not too hard to find, but I had 19/20 and just couldn't find the last one and had to refer to the walkthrough. The minigames were challenging, but not frustrating. It was a long playing game that I definitely recommend. Blue Tea does it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Gem Wow, what a well executed game. Full of style and beauty. The story is well played out with a good ending. Enjoyed it from beginning to end. The dev team put much time and thought into this. It's well worth supporting their efforts. The graphics are excellent and set the tone perfectly. Everything about the world is believable. The puzzles and achievements have many layers. You can continually find items that add to bonuses, ie faster hint renewal, complete a set to unlock a background story (6 sets in all I believe). The HOS are unique in that you're shown the items to find instead of words. Very cool! There is a mini-map that shows areas of interest and objectives to be completed. Very helpful considering the amount of detail of each area that makes the game world seem bigger and more diverse. The artwork is top-notch. The music and sounds blend with the atmosphere seemlessly. Snow Queen is a game of quality AND quantity. It isn't short. Yet it isn't so long that it becomes tedious. Not at all. I'd play awhile, leave, then come back for more. Overall, it's an enjoyable experience worth investing time & $$$ for :)
