“I might not have heard of it before, but now I’m drooling.” Kotaku
“… Drawn: The Painted Tower, a charming game with an enigmatic setting, a game of haunting beauty that defies easy description – a game that does not easily fit into the convenient pigeonhole of either “Adventure” or “Casual. This game is in a class of its own…. – it is poetry.” Just Adventure
“it is unlikely that any gamer will be disappointed by this wonderful little game.” Adventure Classic Gaming

Big Fish = Big Sleaze
Sure, the games are well done, but beware if you get a new device or new computer. This game, plus three other Big Fish titles I purchased on sale in 2011 can no longer be RE-downloaded, even though I purchased them. Apple said they cannot do anything about it because that is the way Big Fish implemented these "in app full game unlock" features. Big Fish said, Apple has my records, so they cannot do anything about it. I have a few hundred iPad/iPhone programs, and I was able to Re-download all of my programs when upgrading to new devices, whether in iTunes or the icloud. The joke of it is, I am able to actually leave a review which is proof that I own it (plus I presented Apple with paid history), yet, the program thinks I've never unlocked the full game when re-download it. I already went through helll with "Puppet Show: Mystery of Joyville", which charged me $4.99 and I already purchased it. You would think the program would detect a previous purchase like all the rest of the programs with in-app purchases that I own, but no, not this badly implemented payment system. The later Big Fish titles have a way of not running into this problem - but BEWARE -- a lot of the older Big Fish titles (such as Drawn The Painted Tower) do not! I now lost my purchase on four big fish titles.
Annoying game, technically and in design
Story line has a decent twist with the magic paintings, but too often when exploring a painting, especially the bottom, clicking on a spot exits you from the scene. Over and over. Also, about a third of the puzzles have a completely random solution (some of which I hit on randomly--whoopee); note, for example, Friend or Foe, where the solution is to set the tiles in the gate so that the griffon and one lion have green eyes, and then you exit the painting and pull on the "Friend" lion's whiskers in an arbitrary order (found this on a walk through, not my own ingenuity). Voila! You're through the gate.
I'm at a loss as to why this game is rated so highly. Have played other Big Fish games, such as the Awakening series, which are not as artsy as this one, but at least have logic to their puzzles.
After writing this review, I'm downgrading the game from 3 to 2 stars--analyzing the experience of playing it has increased the dissatisfaction. Doesn't help that I just finished playing Myst, in which all the games and the story line make sense, and you know that if you simply think hard enough about a problem, a reasonable way to proceed will eventually come to you. And Myst has beautiful graphics.
Enjoyed this game greatly! One of a kind-nothing I've played comes close to the superb music, graphics & puzzles. Some problems: red rock for paint was hard to find; stone circle puzzle was difficult to understand because I didn't realize slabs could be switched among the 3 circles, and the Griffin window puzzle went by too fast because I accidentally solved it in less than 5 moves and didn't get a chance to see what I did! Also, the end went by too fast. Didn't spend enough time looking on the roof before I continued play & the game was over. Nonetheless, the game played smoothly & I never had any problems with game play during the entire week I played on ipad1 with ios 5.1. Hats off to the programmers and developers- a cool fantasy classic.
