So addicting

If you have a lot on your mind and you want to be distracted, this game is perfect! Although it's a game that you have to play after your kids go to bed. Not only do they want to play with you but it's not a game that you can pause, and remember where you were when you get back. Other than that, if you have a long drive and want to make the time fly, this game is perfect for that also. I finished it on our drive from Washington to Georgia and the drive seemed like such a breeze (no, I was not playing while driving, I was the passenger, lol). I really wish there were more levels after all of the item are on the level, it seems like you only get to play a couple levels when you have achieved all the items for that level :(. Don't worry, I'm not saying this to give it a bad review, I'm saying this because it's so much fun! Thank you for your awesome Emily games, she gets me through bad times sometimes. :)

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! Did you know that you can make additional player profiles for the kids? On the game's main screen underneath Emily's Christmas Carol, you'll see "Click here to change player name..." Clicking on that will bring up a window where you can Add and Remove up to five different profiles. You can always switch back and forth between these profiles. They will each have their own progress and they can even have different difficulty settings. :)

I hope that you continue to enjoy the games as much as we enjoy making them!
Kind regards,

I have been a fan of the Delicious series for a couple of years now and I think this might be my favorite entry to date! Watching the game come to life throughout the design process was simply wonderful and made the final result all the more enchanting! From the art to the lovingly-orchestrated festive music, Emily’s Christmas Carol is undeniably filled to the brim with character and warmth. While this entry is heavily entrenched in the story of the previous entries, I would recommend this to anybody looking for a festive time management game and an endearing story, even if they’re not familiar with Delicious. Keep up the fantastic work, GameHouse!

I loved this game from what I can recall when I first bought it. But, my oh my How times have changed! Let me see if I have this correct...I pay $10 plus tax to unlock a full game. Yet, I’m still subjected to watching long ads before AND after every, single level? Got it! Message heard loud and clear. GameHouse games have changed to this format permanently. I have downloaded three games that I have previously purchased, that’s $30 plus tax just on those games (not to mention that I have purchased every single genre of GameHouse games as well) and EVERY one of them bombards me with ads or requests to purchase GameHouses monthly subscription or both. I’m done. Uninstall, moving on, more money in my pocket, less money for you.
I used to feel like you truly cared for your customers, I definitely don’t feel that way any longer. I was a huge fan of your games but, I can’t support this anymore. It’s not like any new games are coming out for the little guys that don’t spend $120 per year anyway, despite all of the promises.
