Dark Parables: The Red Riding Hood Sisters (Bigfishgames.com)
A detective has just discovered the secret place of the Order of Red Riding Hood Sisters. Unfortunately, the Wolf Queen has captured them. She also wants to send her wolves to our world. Can the detective save the Red Riding Hood Sisters and stop the Wolf Queen?
This game is my favorite entry to the Dark Parables saga. I really love the Order of the Red Riding Hood Sisters and Briar Rose from the first game gets a cameo. Like the last game, you can also learn the back-story of the group and of certain characters.
The game play is the same as any standard object game except you don’t have to collect an entire list of crap just to add two objects to your inventory. You have to travel the map and collect objects by assembling the pieces.
Each object has a use in a specific location. You have an unlimited number of hints and you can collect cursed objects if you want the hint meter to speed up. You can also play various mini-games to advance the story. If it’s too difficult, you can just skip it.
As for what I said earlier regarding back-story, collect various items to read the notes in your journal that will help you understand the characters.
You can also play a separate story about the boy who cried wolf. The story serves as a prequel to the game, explaining how the situation came to be. The only problem I have is with the beginning where the boy’s father locks him up in the basement for lying, but I guess punishments were more extreme back then.
This game is fun and addictive. I give it 8 out of 10; an original take on two classic fairy tales.
