    Just a heads-up that the game's name has been changed from

    Danse Macabre: Moulin Rouge to Danse Macabre: Crimson Cabaret.

    DD from the Diving Bell (also a member here) figures it was a trademark issue.

    From Big Fish staff:
    You may note that the games have been renamed, but do know that they have the same content as the previous version.

    Great Leap Forward


    IN BRIEF
    (based on full game)
     
    Well I enjoyed the first Danse Macabre enough to give it 5 stars, so I am out of stars to express just how much I enjoyed this second game. It took it to a whole new level.


    The things I liked best about it include:


    The HOPs were not only varied in their design, they were also quite challenging. And not in the way that some games ‘cheat’, with shading and size distortions These ones are just well drawn into the scene. 


    Love having morphing objects in the HOPs, but I always forget to look for them. I also like the alternative offered, a beautiful match 3 game.


    The puzzles varied – nicely for me. I am never going to get the “solve all puzzles” achievement, but I could at least do most of them. And I love that, where I skipped and one solution only was possible, it was shown as if I had completed it, giving me a better idea of the way to go for the next time – and there will be a next time.


    The way you get about in the map is by carriage, a very Cadenza-like feel. At casual level, it offers as much of a hint as ‘hint’.


    The story managed to hold me right to the finish of the main game in one sitting, and concluded satisfactorily. The bonus chapter was simple and of a lighter weight, but fun all the same.


    I love the extras content of this (or any Eipix) series. As well as being able to replay the HOPs from the game, there are bonus ones! And, of course, the puzzles and the match 3 game too.  My favourites are the famous Souvenir Room, the chance to catch those little windmills you missed, and the wallpapers. And the fun Making Of. ????


    But there is heaps more. Well worth the extra cost.

    Awesome, Justie!  Thanks for the review! Sunny  Remember that if you find that a game you want to review that doesn't have a topic, either message me and I'll add it, or create the thread yourself, and I'll come in and add the specifics later.
