Description

Little Red Riding Hood is the second title in the series of games inspired by the tales of the Brothers Grimm. As the game mechanics are the same as the first game, the challenge is to bring some nasty revisions to the original storyline. Starting from the light theater the entire story is told, followed by six gameplay sequences where the events can be revised and finally the new take on the tale is shown in full in the dark theater.

The fairy tale for this game is well known. It is about a little girl, Little Red Riding Hood, who is sent by her mother into the woods, with a basket, to visit grandma. She meets a wolf and while the little girls strays off to pick some flowers, the wolf eats the grandmother and disguises himself to eat the little girl. When they are both eaten, a woodcutter comes by, slays the wolf and frees the two.

Not only is Grimm disgruntled that most people live on, he also what kind of mother sends a girl into the woods and what poor eyesight she must have not to recognize a wolf. Next to the familiar parts of the story, a certain gameplay sequence also takes place inside the wolf's belly. Unlike the first episode, this one is not free to play forever but only for the first 24 hours.
