Customer Reviews
Dark Arcana: The Carnival is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 148.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If You Like The Weird Park Series, You'll Love Dark Arcana! This game was exceptional! It's more than just a "carnival" game, it also has a unique back story and an amazing romp through the "underworld" version of the carnival. In addition to the "happy ending" you get with reuniting a mother with her child, you also get the bonus chapter that reunites the two star-crossed lovers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spooky Fun I really enjoyed this game. The HOS were good and the items were not distorted and easy to see. There were a few too many for my taste but not an overwhelming amount. The monkey help was fun and useful. I do wish the map had been a transporting map but the hint button would lead you where you needed to be. This one is a must buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best ever... The graphics are brilliant!!! It is one of the most enjoyable ones I ever played. Too much fun, and I recommend it to everyone. The bonus game is not short at all, so it was just great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, even the second time I just finished playing this game for the second time and I have to say it is a terrific SE. Graphically it is creepy and attractive all at once. Voice-overs are well done. The story line and gameplay are integrated well. There are not too many HOS. They are crisp and clear making them fairly easy. And if you prefer, you can opt to play Monaco rather than HOS. The mini-games are fun and do-able. There is a map indicating active tasks (even in Advanced mode). It doesn't allow for travel but the back-and-forth is not extreme. In addition, there are many Achievements. And I can't forget our helpful little friend, Miles the monkey. This game is well worth it. Very entertaining. Great replay value. Can't wait to see what else these Developers have for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun game, doesn't last long I played beginning to end in advanced mode for approximately four hours. It was a fun game. None of the puzzles had me stumped. I recommend this, but only if it's on sale. It's not worth the full price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Game! Well..almost perfect. It does not have a jump to map. However, there is limited back and forth. Hint button is directional. Great puzzles, great HO's and interesting story line. I usually get bored with them. It's as good as the Source games but a different style. It was laid back. May be a bit easy for hardcore gamers but I played in casual mode so there may be some challenge on other levels. LOVED IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Artifex Mundi makes wonderful games I played the Dark Arcana demo on one computer, and switched to another OS to buy it, so that I had to replay the demo section again-- and I didn't mind a bit. It's a gorgeous game and a fun ride. Once you go through the mirror, the visual style changes, taking you from the cotton-candy carnival atmosphere to a stunning sulfur-yellow horror-fantasy world. While the story has a typical missing-person plot, the way it plays out has a bit of a welcome twist to it. I didn't find it all that challenging but it was enough to keep me involved and engaged throughout the game. The same creators made Nightmares of the Deep, Enigmatis, and Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden. I bought all four after playing Nightmares of the Deep, and they've all been beautiful and well-made. Nightmares introduced me to hidden object games and I've been playing lots of them since then, so I guess they got me hooked! If you're into this type of game I think it's definitely worth checking their titles out..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Story Line One of the best hidden object games ever!! This game was alot of fun from beginning to end. Didn't want it to end. Great story with a happy ending. Not too difficult to play, but it made you think what to do in some places. Graphics were beautiful. Totally recommend this game!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jeepers Creepers! Strong storyline, good for an afternoon's gameplay, but had to be the creepiest game ever. I think the producers played up well on people who have a clown phobia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game This game was great in many ways. It immediately drew in my attention, the length was decent, illustrations were well done, and the story line was well written. The level of challenge was decent as well. I enjoyed as much the second time through as I did the first.
