Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide Collector's Edition Review @bigfishgames

Disclosure: This is a partnered post with Big Fish Games. All opinions are my own.

Playing games is an outlet for my already hectic schedule. I work full-time out of the home, endure a tortuous commute and blog on the side. I love it all and playing with my kiddos is the highlight of my day - minus the occasional back talk (yes we are at that age now!). So when I have a spare moment, I enjoy just letting my mind and fingers go to the gaming realm. The ever popular Dark Parables® series from Blue Tea Games released it's 8th installment called The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide


You are placed on a journey through the coast of Crete and face puzzles while searching for items throughout. Achievements are earned and morphing objects are found to unlock the parables. Some of the objects have more than one piece so you need to find all the pieces to put it together before using it. This was a new type of game for me and I found it interesting and a wee bit addicting. 



You have to actively search for objects to place into your inventory that eventually need to fit into the corresponding spot in each of the rooms then gather more objects until you can meet the objective of each level. It's challenging because until you find the needed items, you can't proceed to the next level. The puzzles are intriguing and make you think outside the box. You drift in and out of the various rooms until you find the objects you need to continue. There is a narrative that goes along with the game and I will admit that I did stir a bit when the mermaid became evil.   



I absolutely love the challenge of this game and play it late at night when the kids are in bed. Don't worry if you are a beginner because you can set the level with hints - yeah!

The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide is available for PC and Mac.

Have you played any of the games in the Dark Parables® series? Are you excited about The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide
