Name: Dark Parables: Goldilocks and the Fallen Star Collector's Edition
Release Date: 20 November 2015
Developer: Eipix Entertainment/Blue Tea Games

In this tenth Dark Parables tale, we are introduced to an exciting retelling of the familiar story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The story of mechanical creatures attacking the kingdom is definitely not new; still, Eipix managed to keep the backstory thrilling enough to capture our attention all the way through.

As usual, Dark Parables: Goldilocks and the Fallen Star is an exceptionally beautiful game. Production wise, we think that this installment has more of the original Dark Parables feels compared to the previous two installment that were done by Eipix. The graphics are colorful with exquisite details and the special effects are very well-balanced. We are glad to see some of the signature Dark Parables' sound effects came back in this game, they are ever-so-charming.

The gameplay of Goldilocks and the Fallen Star does not stray far from those in the original games, perhaps just a little easier. The majority of the game still consists of collecting random artifacts and emblems, the interesting parables collectibles are still there as well as the simple and efficient interactive map. The fragmented object scenes are very well-crafted, although there is nothing particularly memorable about them. In addition  the game offers a nice variety of puzzle formats; but again, none of them really stands out as totally creative.

Dark Parables: Goldilocks and the Fallen Star has a fair length of 4 hours, plus an hour for the quite special bonus adventure. The Collector's Edition comes with all of the expected features; gallery items, achievements, collectibles, parables, replayable hidden objects and replayable puzzles.

All in all, Dark Parables: Goldilocks and the Fallen Star is attractive and fun, yet very forgettable. While the game performed well in what it does, it lacks the magical quality and that something special that would have made it more memorable.
