Reviews of Dark Arcana - The Carnival

I liked that the hint button refreshed quickly and was so helpful. The graphics were good. That's about all I liked. The story was morbid, as HOGs typically are, but I did not enjoy spending any time in that carnival. I skipped almost all of the side games. The hidden objects were very easy to find. All in all kind of a bust.

I enjoyed this game. It required enough thought to keep my interest without getting frustrated. The graphics and storyline were good, there was enough interaction with the characters to make it not feel wooden and static. I'm a bit confused as to why it's listed as a new game, though...I played this several months ago.

The storyline is quite original and the graphics are beautiful. Despite the “dark” topic, the game is bright and actually a love story – even if warped. The use of the monkey as a helper is innovative and charming. He makes little sounds to attract your attention when there is something he can do. The map showing the various realms is quite helpful and, if you are really lost, the Hint button will point you in the right direction. The mini-games are different than the usual and have just the right amount of difficulty. You can also skip them if you want. The HOs are clear. I truly enjoyed this game.

Great graphics get this game off to a good start. The story line is interesting but I think it could have been more involved. I like how the music near the end made me feel I needed to hurry. There are plenty of movie sequences, minor enough as to not interfere with gameplay. HOS are clear and easy. As an alternative you may opt for a matching game instead. Puzzles are quite average, simple and easy. No need for skipping. The map is not interactive. It's not hard to navigate but the Hint helps when needed. There are three difficulty levels if you want more of a challenge. And I can't forget the adorable little monkey that accompanies you. He's very helpful. It was a little short. I had a lot of fun but nothing that stood out as special. However, worth the purchase.

This game has everything, HO, puzzle games, traveling (memory). The maps are nice if you can't remember where something goes. Takes hours to complete even the second and third time around.

I like the HO scenes graphics. They could have been a bit more challenging. There were a lot of scenes to explore which I like. Don't care for the graphics of the people talking in the scenes but I just skipped through. It was a great relaxing game.

The hour I played this game I liked it. Took a bit of figuring out How to proceed. It isn't as easy as some of the hidden object games. It combines other skills.
