Is It Any Good?

The gameplay in A Fairy Tale is very easy and accessible. It's good fare for young gamers, but isn't meant to appeal to older players with experience playing games. In this game, the puzzles and actual gameplay take a back seat to the story. It's presented more as a digital storybook, with the puzzle gameplay thrown in as a secondary component. For those who are interested in fairytales, the game holds its weight. It delivers a strong, positive message for young children new to gaming.
