I have been a fan of Big Fish Games long before I began blogging. I previously had several PC games such as Spa Mania and Fishdom 3 on my PC. Not too long ago I reviewed Gummy Drop for the iPad and am still playing it today. When I was asked if I wanted to review Mystery Case Files : Dire Grove, Sacred Grove I said sure. I love to try out new games.
Honey and I LOVE to play hidden object games. Mystery Case Files Dire Grove, Sacred Give is more than a hidden object game you really have to use your detective skills to figure out your next move. When you first start the game you will be given a chance to select a level. This is a great feature because if you are a pro at these games you don’t want it to be too easy with hints and tips. However if you are like me and Honey and new to the series picking the casual player is the best option so you can get a little help now and then.
Mystery Case Files Dire Grove, Sacred Grove Game Mode
It amazes me that my nine year old daughter can figure out what to do in this game all on her own without any help. She has some real detective skills in her. As you navigate through the game you are trying to solve puzzles. If you are new to these types of game I strongly urge you to use the tutorial so it can walk you through what you will be looking for.
As you click on items on the screen you will find that you need to find other items to gain access to that item. For example we clicked on an old rusted box that needed a drill to open it. We found parts of a drill but you have to find all the parts to put the drill together to then open the box. In addition you are finding larger clues to put together to figure out what happened at Dire Grove, Sacred Grove. While you are navigating through Dire Grove you will also come upon smaller mini games to play like hidden object games.
Mystery Case Files Dire Grive, Scared Grove Mini Games
Each mini game will give you another clue. If you play the casual mode like we did you do have the option of using Hints and are given the ability to skip the game and go right to the end. I’m going to be honesty and tell you up front some of these games are pretty tough. I love the challenge and love that that this is a game I can pick up and enough and when I’ve had enough of using my brain power I can set it back down to pick it up later as it does save your progress.
This game is more suited for me. Honey was not thrilled with the wolves and some of the games were to tough and she just wanted to skip them. She did have the opportunity to try out two other games from Big Fish Games such as Christmas Stories: Hans Christian Andersen’s Tin Soldier and Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide.
Christmas Stories: Hans Christian Andersen’s Tin Soldier
After receiving a desperate letter from your old friend, and former Nutcracker, Albert, you rush to help him. When you arrive, you learn that the Rat King’s evil wand has fallen into the hands of a vengeful baron, and now three innocent people – including Albert – have been turned into toys! Team up with the Nutcracker and your new friend, the Tin Soldier, to fight trolls and destroy the Baron’s curse in this third installment in the Christmas Stories series.
Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide
The bestselling Dark Parable series continues with The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide. Follow the clues as they take you to a fantasy underwater kingdom in this exciting hidden-object puzzle adventure game!
These are all similar in how they function and Honey really enjoyed the Dark parable game the best. In fact she loved it so much that I purchased some additional Dark Parable games for her to enjoy as well. Our collection of Big Fish Games is definitely growing!
