Marian, I tried the Trial Game on one of the new Dark Parables (Ballad of Rapunzel), and was wowed! It is another great successor to the previous games: fine graphics, intricate concept, adult in appeal, pesky mini-games, etc. I definitely will buy that one, and probably Goldilocks and Star as well (these are the only two I haven't played already). The series can seem a bit repetitive if you play too many of them in a row, but seldom have I found a series that is more certain to provide hours of head-scratching but beautiful gaming. Of the ten I have played already, only one (The Thief and the Tinderbox) was disappointing. That is quite a run!
