In the case of the game, maybe the CE gives you more of a ride. Although the animations, atmosphere, color, etc. were excellent, I found it a bit maudlin and slow. I also found it short for all the work that apparently went into it.

You could customize your settings which is always a plus so the hint and skip work quickly. Puzzles ranged from easy to tedious and the HOS were a mix of shadow and list and easy to do. I was glad when it ended.

Transporter map was excellent and it was needed as this game took you all over the place to pick a piece here and one there and back to there and back again. Too much. Story a bit odd and weak since the main character was apparently in some kind of trance all the time. Just not a real grabber but with a lot of glitz.

Really glad I just used a credit on this as I would have been really disappointed if I had paid full price. Basically, I'd suggest you wait until it pops up on a DD at $2.99 for purchase. I give it a 2+ out of 5.

If this really is the end of the Grim Tales series, then it's a major disappointment. The Grey family saga deserved a dramatic ending, but instead it got a whimper. The story was so convoluted, I'm not sure I really understood it. My suggestion is wait until you can get this one on sale.

So disapointed, since I have loved all the "Elephant" games. And where is the walk-through, since I am stuck.

Well that was awful.
I had the black background problem but decided to persevere. I wish I had given up.
There was nothing new about this and it was totally formulaic. It is almost as if the developers have a bag with all the standard things like, there is a zipper missing on a bag, lets build a ladder, how can we possibly get that down, oh yes lets use an umbrella, etc etc ad nausea. In addition there are some other really annoying quirks, like "this needs some pliers" it should add not the pliers you have in your inventory but some other pliers, which in fact are not pliers. Grrrrrrr.
And will somebody tell the developers that things screw in clockwise and visa versa. They did get it right with a screwdriver but I guess that was by pure chance as the rest of the time they seem to operate on left hand threads.

Oh and the puzzles were so easy my hamster could do them, blindfold, with one arm tied behind his back. Like what colour is orange? then put it with the other thing coloured orange and that will solve the puzzle. duh!!!!!


All in all a poor piece of work, badly done with nothing at all new to recommend it.
