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 everyone. 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 colouring. 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/colours 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 pay-outs 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 colours 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 coloured 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 colour 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.

After installing Elven Mists, and I guess MyPlayCity games in general (judging by their installer), the game required admin-privileges to RUN the game (not just install), so NO THANKS! :-(

But if you can't save your progress in Relaxed mode? I've read all the comments, & don't think I missed any workarounds...

That's a definite thumbs-down for me. So, unless I get really curious, I'll pass on this one.

Never mastered tetris, but this type of building, which is not to avoid a sudden ending, but, essentially is to effectively connecting puzzle pieces, might be something I can master. At least finding it interesting and challenging so far. Graphics are fine for me, but that's rarely and issue for me unless there are visibility issues. To me, almost everything but playability and replayability are just window dressing. Don't buy items for the boxes but for the content. The music is just a tad "electronicky", but I didn't play that many video games back in the day to be burned out on that, and the music otherwise seems appropriate and reasonably innocuous at low volume. And this can certainly be played without it. The story adds nothing. Might have been interesting if they added fog effects or fire from the volcano, but maybe later on there will be some direct correlation, but likely not. Again, not essential, but, then why even distract players with it? The relaxed mode non-save option is unfortunate. I feel for those people, though I'm a timed player. I like that extra challenge.

Something different to add to my game library. Thanks GGOTD, MPC, Intenium, Whiterabbit, Sallorbear, and the other fine members of the community.

I got this game when it was given away before, and I really like it, except for one thing. I generally play relaxed mode--I don't like the tension of having to beat the clock. But if you play this game in relaxed mode, you CANNOT save it. When you leave, that's it. No way to come back and pick it up where you left off. A major negative in my opinion.

I go back to play this game occasionally. It starts out on an extremely easy level, but there are some difficult levels later. In the arcade mode, you can cheat if you are running low on lives, or if you run out of space to play the next block. Ordinarily you continue the level that you left off by pressing Start - Continue. So, if you find yourself in straits, you press Menu - Quit Game - Yes - Back which takes you back to the main menu where you can again press Start - Continue which starts the level again without losing a life.

You can end each level by only getting rid of the 'flowers'. But I like to get rid of all of the original blocks and gather all the coins and burn up all the hay before exiting. As long as you don't get rid of the last flower, you can play until the time is expired for maximum points.

Today's game is a puzzler set in a fantasy style / magical type world. You may think your Tetris skills are good here but instead of getting lines to rack up points, the way you clear the level depends on your strategy where you put the pieces on the board at.

It includes a tutorial at the beginning of the game when you start a new user so I would suggest looking at it real good before starting the first level. Once you get the hang of the gameplay, it becomes easier to play.

For beginners I would suggest the relaxed mode until you feel comfortable on how the game plays.

Other than that, it's a fun little puzzler and it's small in size too for those of you with not so much storage on their computer.
