I received a copy of Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide to review.  All opinions are my own.

I love Big Fish Games.  They have so many really fun games that I love playing whenever I have a few minutes of a break.  My current favorites are Cascade and Gummy Drop!  I was excited to have the opportunity to review  Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide because it is a new type of game that I haven’t tried before.  To be complete honest, all of my games are on my phone and tablet so this was my first time playing a computer game on my computer.  This game is available worldwide on PC and Mac.


The thing that I noticed first about this game is the amazing graphics.  Everything from the character designs and graphics to the choice of colors really is very pretty to look at.  Each image is so much higher quality than I am used to and many times they look like a painting.  You can tell from these photos how fun the style and design is.


I love puzzle games so I really enjoyed playing Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide .  The object of this game is to search for hidden objects and to complete difficult puzzles.  In this game you are a detective and you need to use your investigation skills to complete your journey.  Their are also fun mini games where you have the opportunity to find object that you need for the game and a bonus game that unlocks the secrets of Prasino’s mad king. This game is the Collectors edition which includes:

  • A variety of hidden-object scenes, including fractured objects!
  • The bonus game unlocks the secrets of Prasino’s mad king
  • Achievements
  • Available Strategy Guide
  • Wallpapers and concept art


I found this game to be enjoyable but not too hard.  There are some puzzles that are more difficult than others.  I think this would be a really fun game for teenagers and adults and that they would love being emerged into the underwater world.  The graphics really help you to get into the game and make it really fun.  


This game is available on PC or Mac only and has the following software requirements:

Game System Requirements:
  • OS: 10.10/10.9/10.8/10.7/10.6
  • CPU: 1.6 GHz (INTEL ONLY)
  • RAM: 1024 MB
  • Hard Drive: 855 MB
Game Manager System Requirements:
  • Browser: Safari 4.0 or later

I definitely recommend Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide.  This game is a lot of fun, has over 20 hidden object scenes and mini games and really has beautiful design.  You can download a free trial to try the game out or get it on PC or Mac.
