Dark Tales 12 - Edgar Allan Poe's Morella CE walkthrough part 1

Date published: Behind a door we find Louisa McDougall, who can tell us, spirits have attacked the family and took her husband and the daughter. The spirits of this game are not quite so happy or jolly. Matching puzzle. There are the standard extras within this game. Uncover images under 6 red balls to provide matches. I really didn't like The Tell-Tale Heart; Metzengerstein was better; but I found The Raven and especially Lenore super disappointing because their stories to me didn't make a lot of sense, and I am here for the story. That said, I sometimes had trouble with the logic of the story. Rating: 1 D. The scenes lack clarity, color, and creativity. If you enjoy the series, I think you will find this one of its best. The 3 Keys to unlock the fire extinguisher are bound with 3 separate Chains! When this happens it always makes the game so much more fun, at least for me. Maze puzzle. Date published:

When we go back to the initial group of Dark Tales, the games were all compelling. Choice between Casual and Hard. In general the game is ok and easy to play. The HOPS are excellent and one of the early ones in the game had me using the hint because the items were so well concealed. Granted the developers do take poetic license with the original EAP story, but it's expected by now. Background music was not irritating as some can be in other games I've played. As great as the characters are however, the dialog is downright corny sometimes bordering on ridiculous. We really don't back track too far, but there is still enough. For a poorly scripted, poorly plotted, poorly acted, trite, banal, and boring game. On the plus side a couple of the puzzles are somewhat inventive. Uncover images under 6 red balls to provide matches. It was only interesting because the locks and keys were colorful and intertwined with green thorny vines. There is nary one challenger during the demo and this causes the drop to 4 star status. Hint system was quite helpful, but I did not see a transport feature during the demo. Unfortunately the series , like so many others, took a downward turn.

  1. Thanks for the reviews. And it doesn't get any better after that. The best puzzles, in my opinion, are in this chapter. Rated 5 out of 5 by rubyt from enjoyable I enjoyed this game a lot. I enjoyed finding out the whole story behind the ghosts and what was happening to the McDougall family.

  2. A, Poe, with the question of the identity of two different persons in the center. The other good thing I can say is that I appreciate the fact that AMAX stays on target in their games, instead of going in different directions that do not make any sense. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Spider13Kat from review so happy you get to play as Dupin, even if only briefly. The spirits of this game are not quite so happy or jolly. However, not all the family is missing.

  3. Opening these cookies reveals jigsaw puzzle pieces used to play puzzles to play at the end of the game. And it doesn't get any better after that. This could have been a very nice game without much work, but it definitely needs to either be updated or retired.

  4. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by nariiska from Lilly's Game This new chapter is fantastic with mini games and hop's that will challenge you. There are the standard extras within this game. The gameplay is monotonous, the tasks are painstakingly boring, the storyline drags and there are hundreds of uninteresting diary pages and notes to read, after a chapter or two, you just want it to end, there's certainly nothing to keep you on the edge of your seat. I really didn't like The Tell-Tale Heart; Metzengerstein was better; but I found The Raven and especially Lenore super disappointing because their stories to me didn't make a lot of sense, and I am here for the story. The same old mini-games.

My favorite is one in the bonus chapter which contains scenes on three different levels of a cabinet. I really didn't like The Tell-Tale Heart; Metzengerstein was better; but I found The Raven and especially Lenore super disappointing because their stories to me didn't make a lot of sense, and I am here for the story.

  6. Jigsaw puzzle. The voice volume is a little low even if you put it to the max; compared the music volume, there is a big difference. There are some multi-level puzzles that almost resemble the Rube-Goldberg type although they technically are not. This game is a perfect example of why the Dark Tales series has run its course.

  7. If the remainder of the game is as awesome as the opening then we are all in for a treat. Opening these cookies reveals jigsaw puzzle pieces used to play puzzles to play at the end of the game. I like the game so far but the storyline is simple without the wow effect. Another game that requires players to jump through all sorts of hoops before being able to freely explore. Of course there are far too many of the mini HOPS that I think are a bit lazy and an easy way out for us to find an item.

  8. Thank you AMAX Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by laurakay76 from The Phoenix rises I have been a longtime player of this entire series, so when I saw that the sixteenth game was being released, I dropped two credits immediately to purchase it without the demo. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games I did find interesting during the entire game: 1-Fill your board with more water tokens than your opponent's fire tokens. I'd like to see how it goes so will probably buy this one.

  9. Without spoiling the reason for it, we actually get to play as Dupin for part of this game, which is a really great change of pace. The bonus chapter is a story by the male housekeeper in the main game. Dupin has received a letter from Rufus McDougall asking him to investigate the disappearance of his family. I happened to skip almost all of them in this game and will go back to them one day when I feel that I have more of a tolerance for that model of puzzle. All in all, this is a quality game and it reminded me why I loved the Dark Tales in the first place.

  10. Ligeia is a great addition to the series! Still, I will try the new one that is out and decide if I want it, also. The one where you had to change the entire board into the blue color was one that stumped me for a bit. This is my new favorite game in this series. Yes, I used those three words again!

  11. That being said, if I mostly ignore the puzzles this is an excellent game. Unfortunately the series , like so many others, took a downward turn. A dark game with a menacing atmosphere.

  12. Plus Dupin got returned to his earlier handsome appearance, which was nice. There are 29 actual Mini-Games, most of which are back-to-back There are mini-games within Hidden Object Puzzles, and even within complex Inventory Items. The same old HO sequences. They vary in design and difficulty.

  13. Match up symbols on a picture. I'd like to see how it goes so will probably buy this one. I picked the yellow dress. Place wood slats into position at an angle so that each of four colored balls fall into a dish of the same color.
