The Darkest Tales is a platform action game that takes us on a journey into a world of fairy tales presented in a distorted mirror. The game was developed by the independent Trinity Team studio and released by 101XP.

Plot

The main character of The Darkest Tales is a teddy bear named Teddy. The protagonist throws himself into pursuit of his owner, Alice, trapped in a land of terrible dreams and twisted fantasies. Searching for the girl leads him through the places from the most popular fairy tales, which together with their heroes have changed beyond recognition. The Sleeping Beauty, for example, is in eternal sleep, the Little Mermaid has turned into a real sea witch, and the Red Riding Hood has drastically changed its culinary preferences; it seems that only fairies have managed to preserve good nature. As if that were not enough, there are many dangers here , with bloodthirsty, gingerbread men at the forefront.

Mechanics

The Darkest Tales is a side-scroller. The game is divided into levels, which we go through, jumping from platform to platform, avoiding numerous traps, solving uncomplicated environmental puzzles, and fighting against hordes of enemies. During the clashes, we have to show dexterity and reflexes, and make proper use of the unusual arsenal of heroes. The protagonist has two swords made of scissors, which allow him to fight in close proximity, as well as a bow firing arrows made of needles, thanks to which he can get rid of his enemies from a safe distance. In addition, it has a hook line that allows it to swing over chasms and thus cover long distances in the air. On the Teddy's path stand both smaller opponents (like the gingerbread men mentioned above) and much more powerful enemies acting as bosses.

Technical aspects

Graphic design of The Darkest Tales is kept in a fairytale but dark style. Many locations are plunged into darkness, and some of the 'crooked' elements of the depicted world can cause concern.
