The Queen of Creation created the universe on the Canvases of Eternity, but what will happen when the Shadows of Oblivion come in and destroy the canvases? As the powerful Guardian with magical gifts, can you race across time and restore the canvases before the universe crumbles?
One of the problems concerning Elefun Games is that while they have a line of promising series, they cannot seem to be able to make them distinguishable. There is nothing remotely exciting about the storyline in The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time as it is essentially just a typical fantasy story. It is also so undistinctive that we feel like it could fit any other HOPA series developed by Elefun.
Similarly, the gameplay in The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time is as basic as can be, to the point that it could actually be mistaken as a children’s game. The adventure part of the game presents no depth and complexity, the mini-games are brain-dead easy, and the hidden object scenes are all single-layered and insultingly simple. As if to try to spice things up, Elefun included two extra features in the game – a magical bracelet and the Lamp of Life. Unfortunately, both of these features fall flat and fail to add any redeeming qualities to the game.
Luckily, The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time is at least very pretty to look at. The imaginative artwork and extravagant visual effects are effective in creating a fairytale-like experience. In addition, the stellar voice-acting and background music are equally impressive.
The Forgotten Fairy Tales: Canvases of Time took us approximately three and a half hour to complete, with the bonus chapter clocking in at the 45-minute mark. The bonus section of the Collector’s Edition features a strategy guide, wallpapers, screensavers, concept art, soundtracks, achievements, and collectibles.
