Yuletide Legends: Who Framed Santa Claus by LynxMinx

Truthfully I didn’t feel instilled with Christmas spirit after a horrendous year and my mother’s unexpected death six weeks ago. Yet this magnificent little gem by Brave Giant Studios changed my mind, and made me feel somewhat better as I played the game. It might not have been as complex a game as most of us are used to playing, but it had a certain “je ne sais quois “ that definitely unlocked my “inner child.” It doesn’t matter how old you are; it’s how the game makes you feel.
This game had exquisite graphics, gorgeous cut-scenes and characters with backstories. The HO scenes had an interesting variety, and in keeping with the Christmas theme, were marked by sparkling ornaments instead of regular stars. The puzzles and games weren’t novel, yet they were enjoyable. Each location had a plethora of tasks to accomplish. This game was fast-paced and I found the gameplay addictive. Inclusive of the bonus adventure, it was a lengthy and wonderful game. The quality assurance was excellent; no glitches to report. I loved this game and it made me take an interest in Christmas once again!
Merry Christmas everyone! Remember that Domini should release a Christmas game on December 19th. Happy gaming!

Wow!! Worth It!

These games have been getting so short, I completed one from Elephant Games in 90 minutes so I decided to time this one. The main game took me 3 hours and 12 minutes. That doesn’t even include the bonus chapter which I have not played yet. The game was a little too simplistic for my taste, definitely felt like I was playing a game meant for kids, but they are so hard to come by these days I’m grateful for a new game even if it’s not perfectly my style. Love the Xmas theme, collectibles, graphics, and the length of the game.
