    SPECTACULAR ***** 


    I was shocked to see there were no reviews in the Big Fish Forum, so I thought I’d have a look-see. Well, it’s done the unbelievable – fired me up about a HOPA game. 
    This is just what I added to the reviews that turned up while I was playing, basically a CE Bling! review. There are 2 good reviews there now, if you’re thinking of wandering over there. And so far, no animosity.
    There are some flame symbols that are collected and lead to a gate to "somewhere", not sure where exactly. They take a little to get your eyes attuned, but then they are not too difficult - yet. 

    There are replayable HOPs with timing accuracy and hint counters. There is also a puzzle section you must unlock. 

    There is a card game in the main game that you must play to unlock its "out of game" use. It has its own gallery. 

    Wallpapers (12), Sound (the best I've ever heard, I think, and I'm a HUGE fan of Cadenza, also made by these developers, and the best music up till this one!   

    And a "making of" video you must unlock. 

    The graphics are stupendous, awesome, magical! The use of 3D style panning adds surprisingly real experience. My heart rate actually surged, and stayed right that way to the end, where I think I blew a fuse!   

    This is very dark fantasy, so while full of magic and enchantments, the wolf cubs you rescue are given immediately back to Mama. LOTS of gadgets of a mystical nature means lots of keeping your eyes open, the HOPs are so original, sometimes I didn't even know I was in one! 

    And that mean dragon? Man, would he give the entire species a bad name. And you know how I feel about dragons! Voice was dishy though.

    This game has it and is put together in as awesome as you can expect to get in a game. 

    I recommend this game!

    Sounds like Mad Head has done it again, and I'm not surprised!  Thanks for the review, Justie!

    A really well made and beautiful game.  They've gone way beyond what we've become accustomed to (and bored by) in hidden object games by putting a new twist on nearly every puzzle and HOS. 

    There are still a few items that will infuriate some of the members at BFG like a thematic use of colors, cute fairies and magical items that need to be used to advance the game but what would a fairy tale be without magic?
