This is the first of what is currently a Cornish trilogy from Peter Edwards. It was published in 2012, followed by The Piskie in 2013 and Mermaid Bay in 2014. All evoke feelings of what it is like to be in Cornwall, through the range of outdoor and underground locations used, pictures of actual locations and subtle sound effects. I’d recommend tackling these games in their order of writing, though perversely I worked in the opposite order! The Enchanted Glade starts in what was an actual hotel in Cawsand (the Old Ship Inn) and ranges over a wide variety of locations in a relatively compact space overall. As with all Peter Edwards’ games, attention to detail and careful searching are important to completing the game though it is possible visit almost all locations with very little effort. Overall, this is an excellent game, in an excellent series, and I strongly recommend it.

Very clever game. One thing stops me from giving five stars, and that is the forest mechanics. While in the forest, going east and then back west does not take you back the same way, instead it sends you to an entirely different section. Another game which I hated, called ZORK, had a very similar problem, although it was for the whole game, while this is just in one section. otherwise, it was perfect.

I love the puzzles! They aren't very tough but they make you think. Most of them are pretty straight-forward. Overall, a great game!

Fun, but very difficult. Looks like you put a lot of effort into it! Well done. I like it. It's very descriptive, and entertaining.

WOO! So fun!
I love the puzzles by this author! ^___^
The map and interconnecting puzzles are very well done. I appreciate this tidbit, too.... if you become stuck, look for helpfulness within the comments - and leave a question yourself if needed!!

Just finished the game and I loved it! A puzzle at every corner, some challenging (but just require thorough exploration and trial/error). Now to head over to Mermaid Bay and see if I can figure that one out!

This game has fantastic potential. It does the 'you woke up and have no idea what happened' thing better than most games that rely on such a mechanism, the blending of fantasy and reality makes for a unique experience, and there's something solemn about the town being abandoned (yet, there being an ice cream man around--I love it!) Again, I have all sorts of nice things to say, but the reason I couldn't give this a higher score is because I found most of the puzzle solutions much veiled, even after reading some of the hints posted on this site, to the point that I had to put the game aside.

With that said, I think this is a good game, and I accept the possibility that maybe I'm just not appreciating the challenge enough.

Another great game...lately there have been some excellent ones on this site. I loved the fact that it was a fantasy that was in this world. It was fun, challenging and the added effects and pictures really complimented the game. Great work! I will admit to needing to read the comments before I could progress at times... :)

How great to have a game set in a genuine location, and one that I have visited in the real world. However, just a couple of days after starting to play I was appalled to hear on the local news that The Old Ship had been destroyed by fire. I'm so sorry. Apparently the cause of the fire is still not known: I hope it wasn't an angry wizard -- and I hope Peter hasn't lost his favourite watering-hole. That aside, the game is as involving and well-designed as all Peter's games, with satisfying puzzles to solve and for the first time I managed nearly all of them without help: I just needed a teeny hint about the lolly stick (thank you Sue for asking the question). A lovely game with lots of atmosphere.
