Elven Mists
In Brief
Elven Mists is a thirteen year old Tetris inspired matching color puzzle game with 92 levels, 11 Chapter Story line and 4 Helpful Bonuses.

The Game
If you think fairies and other supernatural critters have it easy, it’s obvious you haven’t played Intenium’s latest brain-boggling puzzler Elven MIsts, wherein the inhabitants of Elvenland lie trapped in magical slumber. The trick to freeing them: Using your noggin to create linked pathways between magical nodes that overlap with the enchanted buds in which these poor sprites are imprisoned.
Sporting attractive sound and visuals, as well as a catchy play mechanic, it’s the sort of title gamers of all ages and genders will be drawn to. The only question we have is how long they’ll choose to stick around, given the overall laid-back pace at which the outing operates.

Two play modes – Arcade and Relaxed (which removes all time limits) – greet you at the start, with the former being by far the most engaging choice. No matter which you pick, you’ll move along a board game-style map attempting to successfully complete individual scenarios, traversing additional squares as you beat each challenge. All levels are, of course, self-contained, and begin with shimmering, gossamer-winged pixies flying onto the board and nestling within flowering blossoms. Your goal is, of course, to rescue every one. How to do so? Simply lay down pieces of varying shape and size, which look similar to Tetris blocks (left-click to place, right-click to rotate), in such a manner as to cover the squares on which they’re located, while also connecting two magical portals. Do so, and these blocks dissolve while sprites fly free amidst an eye-catching sprinkle of faerie dust.
The catch being as follows: The squares from which each block is formed can’t overlap one another, and each shape boasts different coloring. Therefore, you’ll have to take care to create pathways composed of similarly-hued shapes slowly but surely, placing down blocks while being mindful of the fact one can only tell what one single shape is coming next. (Upcoming shapes/colors are completely randomized.) And, of course, the fact that rocks, blocks and other predefined obstacles limit the amount of space that you have to operate in to start with. The trick then is to slowly, but surely make useful connections. Still, you’ll constantly have to decide whether to play it slow and low with smaller links, or try for big payouts stretching across much of the play field, at the risk of potentially walling off escape routes and painting yourself into a corner.

As such, the game will leave your brow constantly scrunched, if not drenched in sweat. Although it sports 92 individual levels, and you’ve only got 5 lives to complete all (in a nice touch, it’s actually possible to skip certain stages by sacrificing a life), excitement rides shotgun to aggravation here. Certainly, the more colors and obstacles – e.g. brambles, which burn down when adjacent squares are successfully used to link two nodes – added, the more tense the action gets. But while bound to engage existing fans of the puzzle game category, it’s hardly the sort of mouse-mashing affair liable to attract newcomers to the genre.
Nonetheless, the presence of various bonus items, which randomly appear for a limited time and can be collected by placing a block over them, does help keep things hopping. (Think magic wands that let you remove colored blocks, universal bricks, etc.) And, of course, even closet geniuses will need several days to complete the adventure. This being the case, those who just can’t get enough slow-to-simmer brainteasers can’t go wrong adding Elven Mists to their collection. Enthusiasts who prefer their cranium-crushing outings a little more lively or capable of inducing cardiac arrest, though, are encouraged to instead sit this one out.

Conclusion:
Don't let the older graphics put you off this excellent matching color game. It starts off super easy with only single coloured Tetris style block shapes being available, but as you progress more colours are introduced, and make the game a lot more challenging. If you enjoy Tetris inspired games and love matching colour games, this is definitely worth a download.
Despite having been over exposed to such arcade games over the past 15 years or so, I've really enjoyed playing Elven Mists for short coffee breaks over the last week, in between my usual game fare (e.g. The Elder Scrolls Online I've approaching 8000 hours of game play on my main ESO account, Unreal Tournament (free pre-alpha version), Generation Zero (absolutely enjoying this one at the moment), Men of Valor a 16 year old favorite of mine, as well as cooperative play with friends I met on this site with such games as Left 4 Dead 2, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Killing Floor and Dead Island: Riptide with several other old games thrown into the pot such as ArmA 2 and 3 (not so old), Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 2, Vietcong, Battlefield Vietnam, and several indie arcade games (mainly breakouts, tower defense and shmups)).

My problem is the same as the others. There is no way to pause or stop the game and pick it up from that point later. It even restarts if you try to check any of the options functions. It seriosly needs to be fixed because it's otherwise a very enjoyable game.

I have the same problem as others - each time I start the game I go back to the beginning - surely there must be a way to avoid that? It's a pity if not - because the game is a bit different and I'm enjoying it so far.

Can't install it. Pop up saying "successfully activated" but no setup actually runs. Windows 10 64 bit, AMD Ryzen 3 Mobile

I've got the same problem. Regardless of it saying I can continue the game later, it insists on restarting from board one each time. Maybe because I was playing on relaxed mode? Anyway, there's no way I'd ever play 92 boards straight through, and playing the beginning easy levels over and over is ridiculous.

Only had time to try the game for a few minutes. Cute, different from what I've seen here before. Thanks so much. Something to play with when I run low on feeling productive. :) and thanks Whiterabbit for your dedication and wonderful game reviews.

I like the game, but it won't save my progress. Every time I open it up I have to start at the beginning again. Have no idea why--it remembers my name, but back to the beginning I go.

How do I continue the game from a later stage? When I click on "Quit", it says that I can continue the game later by clicking "Start" in the main menu, but actually it makes me start from the first level again, and all the other levels are locked, even the ones I completed earlier.
