Customer Reviews
Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much Beauty Under The Sea! I'm baffled as to why this game was reviewed so poorly. I've played it a few times since it came out in 2014 and I continue to love it! Our brave detective is helping out the little mermaid, her father the king and the rest of her sisters beat a curse brought down on them by the sea goddess. Some favorites from the past also make an appearance. This game was nice and long, the graphics are gorgeous and the mini-games are fun and challenging. You can also collect pieces of the parables that tell the story of her family, but try as I might, I couldn't find them all. Don't listen to the reviews...this game is a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Opulent and decadent ornaments with oceanic theme (Available at BFG since 2014) Beautiful, lovely and bittersweet. When it comes to decoration and ornamentation, this game is a feast for the senses. Wherever you go, you are accompanied by the wonderful echoes, splashes, waves and droplets of water. This brightly colored and richly-detailed game is absolutely heavenly (especially because I'm playing this in the doldrums of winter !). 8-10 HOPS, which are fragmented and offer more gorgeous ornamentation. The puzzles are interesting, and on top of that, there is an ongoing mini-game to convert a screen of symbols into one type. Sounds great and looks great. Music is on a totally separate control - which is always a plus. I think there are a couple of reasons I am now bowled over by this game, but wasn't so when this game was first released: 1) I was comparing it to much to the earlier stylistic look of the Dark Parable games and 2) perhaps it is because I have a better computer now (?). Either way, I now love this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Kingdom That Obliviously Worshipped The Sea Goddess You've been called to investigate an area where a lot of attacks have happened on fishermen. To your astonishment, it was a monstrous eel! But there's a lot more to find out... You'll discover the Prasino Kingdom who blindlessly worship the Sea Goddess, mermaids, etc.. The visual/sound quality is amazing and I loved the twist in the story.. Recommend it! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific fun! I really enjoyed this game. The graphics were especially beautiful. The game had a great length, and ended conclusively. The jump map made getting around easy, the hint button was completely helpful, and one could customize its timing. The story was pretty good (although not the "mermaid-type" I was expecting) but that did not stop me from giving this a 5. I got no glitches, saw no typos--just beauty, everywhere. Lots to do, not really hard, but some puzzles were challenging and I skipped them. You can set your own timing for that, too. Excellent game, and some of the very best graphics that I have seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved it !! It was colorful, interesting and challenging. It kept me busy for days (I'm not an expert player) which I like. I pay for a game I expect it to keep me occupied for a length of time, which this one did. I liked that it kept track of "achievements" and the comments by the creators in the ending credits were creative and amusing. I would recommend it highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Big Winner! I like the Dark Parables games for their fantastic graphics and colors. This one doesn't disappoint. I did skip one puzzle, which I usually don't do, but the spinning circles where you have to complete a picture always drive me crazy. I can get most of the picture completed but then I can't get the last piece in place without messing up all the others. So frustrating! I love all the other types of puzzles, and this game has a lot of good ones. HOS's (FROGS) were fun, and some quite well hidden. Lots of playing time because I try not to use the map much. I'd rather use my memory to find where I need to be. Great game, Blue Tea & EIPIX!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the graphics Beautiful pictures/graphics with a change in your typical HOG scenes. There is some going from screen to screen but that is where the Map is so very helpful, especially when you forget where a certain item should go. The map may not show you the exact location to go but it does show the locations that need something to be done. I enjoyed this game and I believe I have all of the Dark Parable games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing better than teaching an old dog a new trick !!! based on full gameplay,SE I must admit,there's nothing better than trying out something you thought was gonna be one thing and gloriously finding out that you were wrong and need to rethink prior ideas ... I used to dislike FROGs(fragmented object games) and would look the other way when one was on sale...Until one daily deal had me rethink my decision and happily brought me a new series of games to explore !!! I tried out one and since last week have played every Dark Parables in the series !!! I love them,every one of them and this one is no exception !!! It has wonderfully beautiful graphics,bright,colorful,richly detailed scenes !!!and the game has stayed true to its roots...each one improving an already intertwined story !! The voices are great...The music is fitting...I have no complaints except I wish I would've tried them earlier !!!! Give this one and all the Dark Parables a try,you won't be disappointed !!! As always Happy Gaming Everyone !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a good storyline, but would you expect anything less from this series? great game. has a custom level, map and diary or objectives. great hint system. you are called in to find out why the "purple tide" is back after being gone for centuries. an eel of unbelievable proportions is terrorizing everyone. you need to find a way to break the curse and save everyone. sequel....i am sure since this is another in the series.
