Hi, I’m looking for Dark Parables 15 and 16 on iPad, have they stopped being made for iPad? I would have thought 3 – 4 years after publication for PC and Mac would be long enough?
Hi Siobhan, I’ve checked on Big Fish, iTunes and Eipix’s website for you. And I can’t find The Match Girl’s Lost Paradise or Portrait of the Stained Princess for iphone or ipad. It does seem that Eipix arent doing mobile games anymore, as I’ve also checked on google play and amazon appstores and there are no recent releases from them there either.
You could double-check this with Eipix directly, just to make sure?
thanks, Vee 🙂
Love this series, but only the first few seem to be available on a disc. Any idea why? or where to get the later games on dvd?
Thanks for the list- some story elements seem to carry over, so it really helps!
not sure why they stopped doing them on disc. maybe its easier to update or fix downloadable versions if they need to.
thanks for the feedback!
Love these games. This list helped so much. The game you are playing mentions the previous. Helps to go in order. Thanks so much!
I have bought a lot a lot of thesegames online, I wanted to know if I could get them on a CD and delete the ones that were purchased online.
hi only some the dark parables games have been available on disc/hard copy. mainly the earlier chapters, where I’ve found them on amazon i’ve done my best to include them in the list above.
