Grim Tales 7 Color of Fright CE – Review

Color of Fright uses characters and their stories from the previous games to tell the story of Thomas Gray. As the adopted son, he has issues and grudges with all the family members. And in this episode he is taking his revenge!

Elephant Games have managed to bring together all the strands of the Gray family saga, ramped up into one scary adventure!

But even if you haven’t played the previous games, you can still enjoy this thriller. As well as appreciating the puzzle and HO game play. And revel in the gorgeous artwork and tense atmosphere.

There are lots of puzzles to solve, some are really creative and challenging. The hidden object games are also well done, some with mini-games incorporated into them.

This is an excellent HO game, with excellent artwork, a very scary storyline and plenty of challenging puzzle game play.
