I got this Game gifted from my Partner and I am very thankful for it u2665 First of all If you havent played any Dark Parables Games I recommend you to go back and play the first one as those games are meant to be played in Order. Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide Collector's Edition comes with the Main Story which is around 3 and a half hours long and a Bonus Chapter which gives you another half to an hour. It also comes with Extras, such as Wallpapers, Music, Mini Games, Ingame Movies and Concept Art. The Voice Acting in this Game was once again rather nicely made and the Art Style was absolutely beautiful. I believe the Colours in this title, compared to the previous ones, have been even more vibrant. Once again you could not change the Resolution which was no problem whatsoever as it was by default widescreen and unlike in previous Dark Parables it was proper widescreen and not just a stretched image. Although you are not able to get Steam Achievements, this game does indeed come with some Trading Cards. One of my favourite Parts of the Dark Parables games are, how you can collect during the Game pieces which will, once all of them are collected, give you a little background Story, which to my disappointment did not get read to you by a guy but you rather had to read yourself. Regardless of this little let down I have noticed that you can click on the missing parables parts to find them and read the full background stories yourself, even after the game has been finished. I do not believe I have noticed this function before and is a newly introduced feature with this title! For the first time in the Dark Parables Series you can fast Travel. Personally I have it didnt bother me to much that you couldn't Fast Travel in the previous Games but I saw alot of people listening it as negative Point and I must admit after playing a Dark Parables Title with the Fast Travel Option, I dont want to be without it again! I also have seen for the first time in the Dark Parables Series ingame Achievements. Personally I did not really like them, as I am playing those Games for their Story Parts and the achievemnts, once you have unlocked them, wont go away unless you click the achievements tab. The Hidden Object Scenes were compared to the previous games rather easy, especially due to the higher resolution and the proper widescreen. Most of the Puzzles were also rather easy to finish and I had alot of fun doing them, however I found some of them challenging as well. In the previous Game you were able to get 3 Different Endings depending on which item you choose at the end, sadly this Game does not have such a function, which I would have loved to see. One of the Mermaids looks alot like Ariel, a Childhood favourite of mine, which made me even more excited to play this game and got me hooked immediatly into the story. All in all this Game is Fantastic! Although it has some features of the previous one Missing, at the same time it does have some new ones added to it and honestly the story and the Art Style is just lovely. I recommend this Game to any HO Fan and to anybody that loves a good Story.. Generally a nice HOG game. Unfortunately quite some of the objects in the hidden object scences don't respond to clicking initially and others are simply not visible. However I do like that the parts you collect are useful items for the gameplay and not random nonsense. It is a HOG game worth playing if you like the genre. Not the best ever, but in the upper half. I bought it on sale.. I was pleased to see Big Fish Games releasing more casual adventure games on Steam, though I'm a little disappointed to see that there is no achievement added. However, there are ingame achievements. Anyway, Dark Parables is a huge series in the casual world, first by Blue Tea Games before being developed by Eipix. The series is a chronicle of investigations in the world of fairy tales: the fabled detective is sent to different kingdoms or fantasy worlds in order to find what evil is wrecking havoc and how to appease it. This game concerns the tale of the Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide (not really familiar with this one, as the only mermaid tales I know are the Disney movie, Lorelei and the ancient Greek myth - as for the tale itself, I've vaguely heard of it in the Wolf Among Us). There is a temple undersea that suddenly appeared and a monster is terrorizing everyone. However, arriving there, a mermaid seems to want to help you while a cloaked figure (from a previous game if I've understood clearly as the detective was familiar with the voice) is also waiting to enter the temple and to find a lost kingdom. The story is full of twists and questions: the mermaid is helping you AND also trying to slow you down, the cloaked figure is a suspect but his identity is quite shocking, the ghost you encounter is blaming himself but isn't opposed to your presence and the mermaids, well, some of them are also tied to other investigations (which is not really a shock as the fabled detective is acquainted with nearly everyone - however, as the game isn't the first in the series, it's making you wanting to play every Dark Parables out there). The gameplay is standard: find objects, use them, combine them, solve puzzles and clear hidden objects scenes. Everything is quite easy, though you have sometimes an hard time to see some objects or to link them to an area of interest. Even these areas can be hard to spot. On the other side, you have the hunt for Parables (to unlock the whole background on your case), for Moons and even for cups of tea (a nod to Blue Tea Games I suppose). Achievements are also present ingame but they can be upgraded: you have to find a cup of tea, then 3 then the whole pack. Even the fish mascot (Felix I think) from Big Fish Games is present. I'm not going to tell you every bonus in this Collector's Edition but well, there is a bonus chapter on Bluebeard, wallpapers, etc. I loved the graphics as the general ambiance of the game. Anyway, this game is really a must-have, though I would prefer Artifex Mundi's work (developped by them like Enigmatis or Nightmares from the Deep) but well, while I find the price tag a little high, Big Fish is now participating on sales, so, when you see a discount, go for it.. I personally enjoy hidden object games, so I found playing the title a real treat. Great art, beautiful music and some seriously difficult objects to find make this game a winner. On the other hand, the mini-game puzzles became repetitive and stale. I am not a fan of those. Pick it up on a Steam sale; the title will not disappoint. You can clear it in under 10 hours of play.. Generally a nice HOG game. Unfortunately quite some of the objects in the hidden object scences don't respond to clicking initially and others are simply not visible. However I do like that the parts you collect are useful items for the gameplay and not random nonsense. It is a HOG game worth playing if you like the genre. Not the best ever, but in the upper half. I bought it on sale.. Great Hidden Objects game with a fun little storyline, Different difficulty levels to choose from and mini bonus games included in the Collectors edition. I've already played through twice and love it.. This was a great game, I wish there were more games like it.. The Dark Parables series has always been a favorite. Glad to see some are available on Steam. Hope more will be added in the future. The art style and puzzles make this game series very engrossing.
