Fabled Legends: The Dark Piper Collector's Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabled Legends: The Dark Piper CE Once a year the small town of Hamelin celebrates the Pied Piper Festival in honor of the hero who played his pipe and lured the rats from the streets into the river! This year someone must have made him mad, the pied piper has returned with a vengeance, bringing with him millions of plague infested rats! The Pied Piper is now known as the Dark Piper, and it's up to you inspector, to figure out how to stop this madman and rid the town of rats, once again! This game is very similar to the Dark Parables series, same design, same music and most of all the same unique nonlinear Morphs that I adore. Morphing Fable Objects may not morph the first time you see them, it usually requires an action within another scene to trigger the morph, so you will have to revisit areas several time in search of the morph, which makes it so much more challenging! Unlike DP games, the Hidden Object Scenes are interactive list finds, with just the right amount of difficulty. SPOILER ALERT: there are several interactive items in each scene, but not all of them are necessary, just to throw you off track. The Mini Games vary in difficulty from easy puzzles such as selecting specific objects in a stage play to allow the wooden horse to return to the stable. The hardest game in my opinion was selecting flower bulbs correctly so that all connected paths would light up. This Collector's Edition has 20 Morphing Fable Objects, 8 replayable Puzzles, 20 Movie Videos, 6 Wallpapers, 6 Music Soundtracks, 18 Concept Art Pictures, a built in Strategy Guide, and a Bonus Chapter The Midas Lair. This is a fantastic game and it is surprising to me that more games haven't been produced in this series, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice adventure game This is a good adventure game with a lot of HOS and mini games. Its a bit dark but you can still see what your looking for. It has pretty graphics and enjoyable to take your time looking around and exploring all the different areas. There is a lot of going back and forth but I didn't mind it because its a pretty game. The music is serene and beautiful.There is a map and a strategy guide. I am glad I bought this game and will play it again in a few months. Play the demo and see for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming, extraordinary experience The same developer from the Dark Parables series refined their craft, and their offerings this past year have been spectacular. Their art, story, music, and cutscene animations are among the very best of the genre and this dark take on the piper of Hamelin (also touching many other fables) is no exception. If you're a fan of fragmented object scenes, however, you will be disappointed, since they switched here to the conventional object list HOGs. I personally welcome the change (FROG scenes have been abused to the point where you're clicking on minuscule non-descript fragments barely distinguisable from image compression artifacts) although the logic quantum leaps of finding a ton of useful objects only to discard them immediately and leave the scene with a used toothbrush can't be denied. The Dark Piper tries hard to tell a story (including even some character progression and your typical big-but-expected revelation), and gets it right better than most, thanks in no small part to the great character art and design. In my opinion, only longer cutscenes, more read material and a bigger budget could entirely fill the remaining void, and I'm not sure that is a line worth following in the genre. I'd say the game is not difficult but not too easy either, and you'll probably get stuck at some point due to some missed object here and there. The inventory puzzles are the worst offenders, some times stretching the limits of logic. The hint system provided is not good enough for those cases (it won't send you to the right location if there is nothing more to do in the current one, for example). The HOGs are fair, with mostly big and clear objects, although the interactive ones require some real thinking since there are usually some red herrings in the scene (usable or pickable objects that actually serve no purpose). Puzzles are varied and well done, although they fall on the charming-but-too-easy side. The CE is well worth it thanks to the extra chapter. Although somewhat short and featuring only an unconnected, poor story and a lacking villain, it has some of the best backgrounds in the game. Other extra features include the expected music score, concept art, and a few extra puzzles (basically, harder versions of the game's ones). Overall, however, it is an excellent experience, specially thanks to the charming art and immersive backgrounds. Definitively one of my best picks from the past year 2012. The developer is one to follow and I wish they include even more modern features in their next offerings, such as a much-needed teleporting map and a multi-screen aware hint system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game - Kept Me Hooked Just finished 'Fabled Legends: The Dark Piper Collector's Edition'. From 10 minutes in on the demo I knew I would buy this game. It had all the elements I enjoy in a game - wandering around, picking up things and really feeling like "you're there". The story is loosely based on the old Pied Piper story, except that here the Piper has unleashed a plague of infected rats on the townsfolk of Hamelin. Those who didn't succumb have fled the town, leaving you to walk around, solving the mystery. There were quite a lot of HOGs in this game and not quite so many puzzles. The HOGs were, for me anyway, relatively simple, and the items to be found were all visible. I *hate* HOGs where it's nigh impossible to find some of the items without giving yourself a headache from all the squinting up close at the screen! The puzzles there were, from memory, tended mostly to follow a similar theme. That didn't detract from my enjoyment of the game, though, because the storyline held my interest so well. In addition, there are 'fabled objects' to be found #morphing objects#, 20 in all, so it did slow me down and make me take a good look at each scene before ploughing ahead! There were a few times I needed to consult the built-in strategy guide just to keep myself on the right track, but more often than not I was able to keep track of where I needed to use particular items. I also didn't realise - until I'd finished the game - that there is a 'golden map' on the bottom right of the screen, which tells you where 'areas of interest' or 'active areas' are. That would've saved me having to consult the guide to find the next HOG - doh! Overall I highly recommend this game. For entertainment it kept me hooked, and - like all great games - I was disappointed when it finished. I'm in the middle of playing 'the Midas Lair' just now, which is the CE's bonus content. I believe that once I've completed this there will be more bonus content in the form of stand-alone puzzles accessible from the main menu. Lots to keep you occupied in this game, which gets a 5-star rating from me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Collector's Buy for Me I have NEVER purchased a Collector's Edition game before the demo was up, but I had so many areas of the map and storyline that I wanted to explore, that I didn't want to feel that rush of 1 hour almost up. Going to buy now. Pied Piper of Hamlin is back to take revenge on the inhabitants of the city of Hamlin - nuff said. Music was appropriately spooky and serene, Map available showing you objective areas, In game strategy guide, lots of items on the screen are interactive, including the HOS. I'll leave it up to you to figure out what to do with them. New types of games, new types of "cursed" objects. Bonus game button for those who finish the standard game. I love that you can click on stuff in the game that you don't necessarily need, and the game interactively discusses the items - pulls you in. Oh yes, and there's RATS! I'm going to take my time on this game. Fun times ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant game This one is from Blue Tea and once I saw their logo I already knew it must be great and I was right. It really is a fab game. The intro is stunning. I'd strongly advise not to have a cup of coffee in your hand as I did or you may have to mop the floor, too :-). Because of that alone, I decided not to play the full hour of the demo, so I can watch it a few more times :-) until I have the cash to buy. Moving characters, fantastic voice overs and from what I saw and recall of the legend of the Piper it is well researched but does have its own life. The graphics are stunning, so much to see and to do and really beautifully done. The HO scenes are the best I have come across in a long time and the same goes for the puzzles. They are innovative, fun with a level of difficulty that won't frustrate. There are morphing objects and a lot of things that interact on mouse click. You do come across an awful lot of rats which could be issue for some, especially for anyone suffering from musophobia. Personally I quite enjoyed the ones you can click on. They squeak and run away :-) The game has a map which points out areas of interest. Not sure if you can teleport with it and the reason why I don't know that is because the scenes are so beautiful that I didn't want to. I could ramble on and on telling whoever reads this how absolutely gorgeous this game is, but today I make it short. Want to watch the intro again :-). I will definitely buy this CE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great game from Blue Tea Games I am never disappointed with this developer. To me, they seem to put a lot into each of their games. Here again is a CE that I think is worth the money, in my view. It's a long game (easily 4 1/2 to 5 hours plus 1+ hour for the bonus) that is totally immersive, beautifully rendered with great voiceovers and appropriate music. The H0S scenes, of which I counted 28 in the main game and 9 in the bonus play, are clear and uncluttered. This many H0S in a game is usually a disappointment to me, but I had no problem playing them in this game, even three back to back. The graphics are so lovely they are a pleasure to play rather than something to be endured. The puzzles are not that difficult and there could have been more of them for me, but they were still fun to play. The cat hint button is very cute and recharges very quickly and the map, showing objectives and areas of interest is useful. There is some running around to be done, but the setting is not so large that it should cause too much confusion. I recommend this game. Once I started playing I found it hard to stop.
