You play as (no-longer-all-that Little) Red Riding Hood, and Red makes for a sympathetic heroine. You also meet a lot of other colorful characters taken from various fairy tales and children's books, and the game offers a cartoony, post-modern revisionism of these familiar faces (think [i]Wicked[/i], [i]Fables[/i], [i]Hoodwinked[/i], or [i]Enchanted[/i]). It is easy to see the fondness for the original stories.
However, the solutions to most puzzles seemed quite arbitrary to me, with little to indicate how to achieve particular tasks. This made the game an exercise in "guess-the-designer's-mind", which is difficult and not particularly enjoyable.
About two thirds of the way through, the story takes a sudden left turn, and this twist may not appeal to everyone.
The writing is mostly good, but there are a few examples of unidiomatic English.
The graphics are great, the music is catchy and the characters are all well designed and everything fits together nicely.
The majority of the puzzles are all logical and were just challenging enough, though a few i really did struggle on but overall a very good game.
I enjoyed meeting Hook, Smee and Tinker Bell !
Top marks for everything except for the puzzles - there was one puzzle where there was no clue how to proceed, and the player had to guess and try all inventory items on everything... that's not fair.
Otherwise great job - the graphics were pretty, the story was imaginative and novel and the game was a delight to play.
The puzzles were challenging but very logical if you think like a fairy tale :D
I thought the graphics were beautiful.
Thanks Ghost for this adventure I had a wonderful time in Parodise!
Don't forget to see the credits through - its worth it...
Thank you for a lot of fun!
And a happy new year to all of you!
In one word: exquisite!
