Tales Weaver : Second Run - A Review of the Mobile Game Based on the PC Classic

Fairy tales are stories that range from those in folklore to more modern stories defined as literary fairy tales. Despite subtle differences in the categorizing of fairy tales, folklore, fables, myths, and legends, a modern definition of the fairy tale, as provided by Jens Tismar's monologue in German, is a story that differs "from an oral folk tale", written by "a single identifiable author", which can be characterized as "simple and anonymous", and exists in a mutable and difficult to define genre with a close relationship to folktales.[1]

A couple of the episodes were directed by Tim Burton and Francis Ford Coppola, and some of the scenery was inspired by famous fantasy artists like Maxfield Parrish and Arthur Rackham. While there was a healthy dose of camp administered with each episode, the fairy tales did stay pretty true to the storyline and sometimes even took it a bit further. (How does a princess explain to her father that she went to bed with a frog and woke up next to a naked prince?) This series was made with a lot of love and some seriously high quality for the time. It was also cited by Zipes as a prime example of a big time money-making venture.

Realistically, how can one stay true to any source material when one is encouraged to include all the fright and fireworks required to garner award attention? In their shorter forms, fairy tales are often used to invoke happy endings, but these longer, newer incarnations concentrate more on their dark and subversive nature. Twisting the original tales and pushing the limits both visually and emotionally for ratings, reviews, and media attention has become far more of a driving force than staying true to Messrs Grimm and Andersen.

The Metamorphoses tales and other Greek myths featured here often involve some form of transformation and explore many aspects of human nature: greed, curiosity, vanity, generosity, arrogance, creativity. This makes them a very powerful springboard for discussion and creative work.

With the recreation of Talos' maze as its backdrop, this series of longer, inter-related stories incorporates versions of the tales above which will already be familiar and will be a useful stepping stone to the longer stories of War with Troy and Return from Troy.
