  • Good Game Feb 1, 2016

    I got this game with the bundle and after reading the reviews my expectations weren't very high for this game but it turned out well. There wasn't any crashing for me but I did have to turn off my auto lock because it would freeze if it locked or I accidentally brought my bottom settings menu. The game was long in my opinion but in the end I still felt like a lot was unexplained which isn't uncommon in the Dark Parables series. The puzzles were clever but I hate being penalized for rapid tapping lol and the x, ?, and gears symbols were annoying don't know why but they bothered me. Bottom line is it was a very good long hidden object game. :)

    I really enjoyed this game! I started it several times since I bought it & it always crashed at the same place. Thank you so much for fixing the glitch! I have done everything in the section on crashing- several times. I have restarted this game at least 4 times since I bought it. It always crashes in the room with the seahorse fountain (greenhouse?). I don't want to start over anymore. Liked the game - up until then! Really like big fish hidden object adventure games but I'm afraid to buy any more. I have upgraded to a 6s phone & it still crashes. Disappointed.

    By Wheatieluv
    Updated Review: I had to delete the app and reinstall it in order for the game to work without crashing. The game was great when it wasn't crashing, but the way I had to fix it meant I started over from the beginning and I had been pretty far into the game already (so this was a disappointing solution). I hope in the future they spend a bit longer on the games so this problem doesn't happen again. Original Review: It keeps crashing on me. Please fix it or give me back my money. :/ I love the Dark Parable series so this is very disappointing.

    I thought it was really fun. The story was a bit silly, but the characters were beautiful rendered and it was far from the worst story I ever played! I enjoyed the type of HOP they had in this game. It had more Chapters than many games. Overall, it was much more fun and engrossing than I expected it to be! I also enjoyed running around the castle trying to find the next door to go through.

    I am currently stuck in the greenhouse, the current active objective is 'Find a way to break through the magic barrier.' And every adjacent room has a star indicating that there is something to do. Trying to exit to one of these rooms crashes the app, trying to use the map to travel to any location results in crashing the app. I've tried force-quitting the app and restarting the device, next is to restart the game but judging from the other comments posted here that will likely not resolve anything. iPad Mini 2 (8.4) EDIT: starting over with a new player solved my crash, but since I had previously been so near the end I sped through gameplay. Overall a poor experience.

    I’ve gotten most, if not all, of the Dark Parables games and I honestly have loved them all. This game crashed at first but I did what another reviewer did and reloaded the game and it worked perfectly after that. Super great graphics and a nice storyline. I love how the fairy tales interweave in these games. I’ll definitely get the next installment!
  • Awesome!! But... Apr 3, 2018

    By Peterpan a girlfriend
    I absolutely love the artwork and and incredible craftsmanship of the game. Good storyline. Didn’t exactly explain everything in the end. Although I like the open ended idea of it. But there is a glitching problem at a very important part of the story and I cannot finish the game. I am very frustrated and I have no clue what to do to make the game work. Any ideas?

    I got the bundle pack and this was the first game I tried playing. It kept crashing and Ive tried to troubleshoot as was suggested by the developer's website Edit: so I'm glad that it only crashed on me closer to the beginning. I got to finish it after reinstalling it and starting over and I thoroughly enjoyed the game.

    I enjoyed this game and had no issues. I really like that if I miss something in the game, special object like morphing, it allows you to go back and get it without having to redo the whole game, which I'd never do. I hate leaving things undone. Thanks again for a good one.
  • The usual Big Fish game Mar 21, 2016

    By *AlyRose*
    I had a few bugs where the game would shut down and refuse to play on which ended with having to uninstall and reinstall it. It's what you expect, easy gameplay that occupies you for a bit with pretty good graphics and colors with an interesting take on fairytales.

  • EXTREMELY disappointed! Sep 24, 2015

    By Irate Customer...
    Let me just say, I'm getting REALLY frustrated with this game and the Big Fish company. It looks like the game is crashing in many different places. I have had this game for about a month and a half and I have tried to restart the game at least 10 times within that time frame. Each time I try it, it crashes at a different spot. Like many other people here, I LOVE the dark parable game series. HOWEVER, if this problem is not resolved, not only will I never buy a Big Fish game again, I will have to recommend that no one I know buys this game simply because it would be an absolute waste of their money since the company does not seem capable enough to fix this MASSIVE issue!
  • Crashes during Chapter Five! Jun 1, 2016

    By egseehausen
    I was enjoying the game pretty well until it repeatedly crashed and closed the whole game during Chapter Five. It would let me start a new game, but if I tried to continue my saved game, it would crash no matter what. I really don't want to start over when it may do the same thing again! The game was pretty good until the crash. I liked how if you clicked Hint on normal mode, you could just click on the map to go to the suggested room. The hidden object scenes were really fun. I felt like the art and story were not as compelling as some of the other Dark Parables games.
  • Crashes. Jan 17, 2018

    By 11thplanet
    Crashed in chapter 3 over and over, on the same scene, tried everything but reinstalling. Not worth the effort or my time to restart from the beginning. Tried to reach support for a refund, but doing that within the app is almost impossible due to the poor design of the page. Again, not worth the effort or time. Deleted. Don't purchase.

    Crashes too much , I’ve uninstalled and started over 3 times now.i know other reviews said the same but I took a chance because an update was supposed to fix this issue.. it didn’t. Now I’m too frustrated with it to bother trying to finish. This seems to be the new norm with BF games.

    Trying to start chapter 4 and it keeps crashing sending me back to my home screen on my phone. Tried 5 times and each time I get kicked from the game. Very disappointed I have played every Dark Parable game and this one is the cheapest looking, not well made and the only one to give me problems

  • Dark Parable Little Mermaid Jun 1, 2016

    By Some Dudes Mom
    I would have said totally loved this game. Which I did until it crashed and would not work anymore after getting a little more than half way into it. So was very disappointed. Was thinking I would buy all these Dark Parable games. Until that happened. Now no thanks!

    I know this is an older game now, but if you're still selling it, you should update it. It keeps crashing and I don't want to ask for my money back. I would love to play it all the way. I even downloaded your Big Fish app, it's my favorite. Please update older games!
  • Fun, but keeps crashing Jan 19, 2017

    By CynderMizuki
    It's very enjoyable, beautiful visuals and story, but in random parts it'll keep crashing. The only way to fix it is to reinstall and lose all progress.
