Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great in the Grim series The story is amazing for Halloween with several jump scares and an awesome storyline it'll have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Simply loved it yet again, well done guys, keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for those fantastic puzzles!!!! This could almost be a MCF game! Loved the creative special puzzles! Always wish there were more but thankful there were at least 4-5 of them. Keep going in this direction! There are not enough games with creative puzzles! Thank you for not using the same old boring junk pile HOS! Good length but the Bonus Game was too short! Made me wish I just got the SE version, with the exception of the one puzzle at the end. Good story, great scenery. Fantastic game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A SPECTACULAR GAME and A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE!! If you are a fan of Grim Tales then you will absolutely LOVE Color of Fright. This game is perhaps one of the promos for a series I've ever seen as it combines and re-enacts the cumulative saga and storyline of the Gray family into one action packed adventure game . The plot is quite sinister and unexpected as we are introduced to Thomas, stepbrother to Luisa and our Grim Tales heroine "Aunt Gray". Thomas has fallen obssesively and quite madly in love with his stepsister Luisa from the moment he meets her as a child, to the moment she announces her engagement to the "wolfishly" handsome gazzilionare John Gray and his sociopathic tendencies are triggered. When the Gray family realizes Thomas is a shrine building-fatal attraction-stalker, they unanimously decide to admit him into a posh psychiatric facility. Feeling betrayed and "pitied," Thomas begins to plot the demise of his adopted family by recreating their personal "nightmares" on canvas which come to life acting as portals of his vengeance. Armed with your own magical set of canvas and paints, Aunt Gray must now "design" the safety of each family member by beating Thomas at his own twisted game. The paint feature is hands down the best I have played. Tasked with drawing, painting, and combining colors on your pallate this wonderfully creative feature is activated automatically. By extension, the graphics are a visual feast... clear, vivid and vibrant. Screen shots are often extended to the right and left by arrows revealing important features and literally expanding your depth of field and play space. HOS and mini-games are equally creative and innovative combining many of the latest features introduced in cutting edge games (which you will find on the best rated games on the Big Fish site) as well as old favorites such as morphing objects. There is a great bonus feature in the CE called the "Secret Room" which is dedicated to finding morphing paint supplies throughout the castle in a span of 8 minutes (and believe me you're really going to want to beat Thomas). Other finds include Gray family collectibles which are very familiar as they relate to each character's personal story and game in the GT series, particularly GT: The Legacy, The Vengence, and Bloody Mary installments. The last collectable are a series of animated "monsters" for every mood which is plain fun and hilarious. As a fan of the Grim Tales series, I bought COF immediately ,sans demo, from "tomorrow's game today" without reservation and with much excitement. Elephant and Big Fish are constantly raising the bar of excellence in the adventure game genre and I expect they will continue to lead the industry by exploring and expanding the boundries of imagination and discovery. Congratulations on a yet another spectacular release... your work is much appreciated!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BLESS THIS ELEPHANT'S TWISTED LITTLE HEART! I have been SO disappointed with games of late, but I am ON FIRE after playing Color Of Fright! KUDOS to all of the creative minds that came together to make this game that grabbed mine, on so many levels, from start to finish! I've never been a cut scene fan because I felt it interrupted the game play. I was so absorbed in the game that I practically hung on every word. All about discovering the story. Ho-hum HOS? NO way! Such a VARIETY and so nicely spaced. So much to do in this game but I never felt like I was overwhelmed. PUZZLES (my favorite part of any game) running the gamut from simple to those I haven't seen the likes of since MCF: Fate's Carnival. When you complete one of those, you feel like you've ACCOMPLISHED something! Like keeping your brain alive and kicking! Haven't ever been excited about cutesy sidekicks, but they have even managed a nod to those who do. When you need a little helper, why you just pull out your paint palette and MAKE one! And if that sounds like fun--IT IS! I had to laugh because the cute, furry creations became a bit more scaly as the game progressed. Which was so perfect because we were getting closer to the mind of the madman! Morphing objects and collectibles that, for the most part, weren't too hard to find. I did let a couple get by me. But the 24 MONSTER collectibles! No cookie cutter monster shapes. Every single one an individual with a name! Some cute. Some not so cute. I am flabbergasted at the amount of work it had to take to create them and the worlds of this game. Puzzles for my brain. A color palette for the artist's eye. Twisted enough that I wouldn't recommend it for children. Just enough to be kinda spooooky. And laughing out loud at some of the remarks that let you know that that these devs must have had a BLAST creating this game. And I was over the moon playing it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Secrets Always Return To Haunt You This is one family reunion you do not want to miss! Aunt Gray's train delay caused her to be late to the Gray Family Reunion, instead of bright smiles from familiar family members she is welcomed by an empty house and threatening graffiti pointing out each families weakness and dark family secrets! Little sister Lusia, along with her husband John were once cursed and turned into werewolves (those were such good times) their son Brandon has also had his fair share of turmoil, (Snow Queen) but he's all grown up and on a business trip in Germany. For now Brandon seems safe but the graffiti clearly states that Brandon will be the next victim! Then there's Jackie, your sweet, innocent niece who has been afraid of mirrors ever since Bloody Mary traumatized her and her classmates at the boarding school (gotta admit that one sent shivers down my spine) Let's not forget about Elizabeth and James McGray and how your ability to travel back in time provided proof that James wasn't guilty of murdering Elizabeth. My, my, my, this family seems doomed, and it seems that your adopted brother Thomas has some family secrets of his own, what does he want to prove to this close knit family, and why now? Fanflippingtastic is the only word I can think of to describe this epic adventure. Superior graphics seems to be the norm with this series and they have added a new feature lately that puts this game on top. I think you will agree that allowing the player to scan to the right and left of each scene, seamlessly, gives the game more of a 3D vibe and helps make the player feel more involved, almost as if you and Aunt Gray are one and you are actually there! As if the camera panning wasn't enough, you get to interact with the surroundings, touch the fountain and watch the water dance, sprinkle fish food into the pond and watch the goldfish gobble up the floating pellets and if it's dark, try turning on the lamp that's exactly what you would do if you were actually there, these devs have really outdone themselves and it hasn't gone unnoticed! The special features keep coming, some items have plus sign indicators which mean that the item requires further interaction such as sharpening a knife or placing a handle onto an axe head, before you are able to use that item. You find a hidden artist kit that once belonged to Thomas, he never told anyone that his beautiful paintings came to life, and apparently your paintings will come to life as well once you complete a painting in the form of paint by numbers. There are several different hidden Collections throughout the game which will have a brief description about the meaning of that collection and you can view the collections anytime. There are also Morphing Objects (my favorite all time feature) and Hidden Monsters that I thought was unnecessary but oh well. The Hidden Object scenes are becoming a standard with this series where you must first find color coded keys to unlock the lists, some of the listed items require some type of interaction such as placing a single butterfly with two other butterflies, once each section of items are located you will acquire mirror fragments that will be reassembled into a completed mirror which will then become an inventory item. The mini games are super entertaining, my favorite was a lengthy puzzle where you need to interact with several different components to solve. First you find a missing moon symbol, place the moon where it belongs and then repeat the sequence of`twinkling stars which spins a wheel and a dog appears, that dog needs placed next to Elizabeth so that he can scare away the evil entity in her life and expose a torch which is used to light a lantern for Jackie to scare away Bloody Mary exposing mirror fragments and so forth until you find several gears which is the final piece of this extremely interactive mini game. This Collectors Edition has Wallpapers, Concept Art, Screensavers, Music, Achievements, Collectibles, Little Monsters, Morphing Objects, a Secret Room, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why All the Negative Reviews? While I get that everyone has differing preferences, I thought this was a very well-done game. Yes, you have to scroll in the scenes but this makes the game more like high-end and much more expensive adventure games. I thought this was an excellent game on par with other Elephant Games stories. One aside not speaking to this game specifically...I really do wish Elephant would go back to incorporating live action sequences into their games like they did in the past. I thought that gave them a much more realistic and quality feel. Many of the purely CGI cut-scenes used in their newer games have a very unrealistic, mechanical feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just fab game... Been a lot of hum drum games lately, but this game is anything but! Elephant games are mainly excellent, and this didn't disappoint. 3 play modes (although do wish we'd get a custom mode too to do away with black bar tips), plenty of collectables including morphing objects, map, hint system excellent and takes you to a scene with an objective. Amazing graphics, music in keeping, not too many cut scenes and not too many HOPs. The HOPs were really good, and for once I looked forwards to them. A good variety of them too. Puzzles interesting. A few along the lines of the MCF games, but not as complex (thankfully). The bonus chapter was ok. Short as is the norm it seems, although at the end you could enter the secret room and search for a selection of morphing objects. Really enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great HOAG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Was A Great Game I don't know why lots of people didn't like this game, but I loved it. I really didn't have any of the problems that the tech forum described. I really loved the new feature with the rooms. I know most of the reviewers said they didn't like it but I found it interesting. It seemed to be a bit challenging as far as the HOS were concerned. I found the mini games a little too easy for a Grim Tales game. My only complaint is there were too many different collectables. I really don't like games that are overloaded with them. They seem to distract form the game play. But over all I ABSOLUTLY LOVED IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a stupendous gameplay ! I played the entire game bonus chapter included and I dont't inderstand the reviews with one or two stars... ??? You can think that a game is too challenging for you or not your kind of game but not say that it is a bad game ? I play games since the beginning of BFG, there were plenty of TM games at this time :). The french BFG site was not created. Then came the hidden object games : I have plenty of them in my purchase history ! But now I want originality and a solid gameplay, this game has it all !!! The cinematics and graphisms are fantastic. You can go to the left or the right with your cursor in some scenes of the game and I liked that !! For those who don't like that, this is'nt in all the game. You have a lot to do, this game is not boring at all. It is the first game for a long time that I was sad to finish. You have collectibles, morphing objects, little monsters to find. It was very fun and not too hard to seek them. It is not important not to find them all. The HOS are interactive with lists of objects , match pairs, silhouettes to find. There are easy mini games and more difficult, logical but fun puzzles to do. There are fun details like to feed fishes at the beginning of the game or a deer which is crossing the road away... You have a palette at the bottom right of your screen to draw little animals, then paint them. They can help you in the game. I You must find sketches to draw them. I liked that very much ! The only complaint I have is for the colors : always purple, blue, pink colors. Yes it is a creepy game, Thomas is mad and creepy, but there is no need to use always such colors ! I have a wallpaper of this game on my computer : the two wolves are pink ! The last Awakening was also blue purple... It's a shame, real colors are so beautiful and can also be creepy... I remember now, you have a secret room after the bonus, it's a secret room so I don't say anithing about it ! A little more fun in the game :) So, try it and if it is your kind of game, buy it and have fun !!! It was so a great pleasure for me !!! Have a good time !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Welcome back to Gray's Castle! The poor Gray family have certainly had their ups and downs in the Grim Tales' games! You are once again Aunt Gray who returns to Gray's Castle for the traditional family dinner but finds your relatives all gone, with some challenging notes left for you. You quickly figure out the crazy adopted brother Thomas has escaped from the mental institution, taken the family and turned Luisa - his love - and her husband John back into wolves. Thomas is a painter, and you find his magic painting set that lets you connect the dots to finish the drawing, and then paint it, so it comes to life and helps you. A new concept with this game that takes a bit getting used to, is the left and right panning that makes each scene into a kind of panorama. Every time I got stuck, it was because I forgot to pan to find some new clues. There are also some nice touches with objects like fish food and fountains that will bring a smile to your face, even if they aren't necessary to the game! The HOPs are quite clever and multi-faceted. Find some keys to open up the lists, then find the items in the list to make yet another item you need. The mini-games are unique -- you open up a contraption that you have to figure out what to do next to bring up the next item you need. Luckily, there are hints within the mini-game so if you get stuck, you don't have to skip, you can use a hint instead. This developer certainly gives us our CE bling. There's the secret room, 24 Monsters with cute names to fine, collectible treasures - so far relating to Luisa's wedding - plus morphing objects. There are 18 achievements, almost all time/hint/skip related. There are only 3 modes of play, but there is a gamma option to lighten up the screen -- one I use because my large screen gets darker near the top. Try this one -- and the previous ones if you haven't played them!
