Charm Tale Charm Tale is an inlay puzzle game. The game relies heavily on the hand-drawn artwork that comprises all the backgrounds in it. Each small section of the bigger picture corresponds to a certain chapter in the fairy-tale story. Each of those sections features a specific creature or object which directly relates to the story itself. Poet and the nightingale, the girl and the knowing snail, schoolmistress, dolphins are some examples of the characters player will encounter through the course of the game, bringing it the flavor of an ongoing adventure.

The gameplay remains typical to that of an inlay game. The player should correctly fit the crystalline shapes given to uncover the picture beneath them. The trick is to do that before the string will be overrun by shapes. Additionally player has an access to an array of power-ups that will either stop the string of figures or abandons some of them. Also player can take advantage of Chameleon Shot that will break the complex figure into a simple one. Together with crystalline shapes players will encounter a piece of jewelry that must be correctly assembled in the additional portion of the screen. Once done it will allow to upgrade various gameplay stats. For example, player can increase the number of score given or decrease the speed with which the figures are moving. [source:mobygames]
