Take on the role of an experienced detective and get carried away by a winter adventure amid frozen lands. Find hidden motives of the antagonist and save Santa Claus from a false conviction in this seasonal Hidden Objects adventure.


For the Yuletide Detective there is no busier time then the winter season and this year proves it like none other. As Brigitte Woolf you're seconds away from sinking in your cozy armchair and chilling with a cup of cocoa, but a visit from Mrs. Santa changes your plans.

Not only was her husband accused of an extremely callous theft, but Santa himself became a victim of a thief. The unknown perpetrator took away his voice and left him in despair.

In the face of such wickedness and such an aggressive attack on the winter spirit, you have no other option than to put down your book and cozy blanket and get on with some splendid detective work with a magnifying glass in your hand. Especially since you will meet lots of people from magic and myths - the Snow Queen, Jack Frost and Krampus.

• Play as Brigitte Woolf - the Yuletide Detective!
• Use your wits and smarts to solve almost 30 puzzles!
• Get to know the colorful menagerie of magical characters!
• Visit 35 picturesque winter locations in pursuit of the perpetrator!
• Find evidence of Santa's innocence!

Fun game

It is long enough so that it is not over quickly like some. I like the holiday atmosphere and that it doesn't have too many really nasty characters. The difficulty level is satisfying. Fairly easy but requires time and patience.

Really Fun

I am addicted to ALL Artifex Mundi hide and search adventure games. I buy them all, even this Xmas themed gem. It's not too sophisticted but has great special effects and an interesting story line with cool locations. Many of the mini games are very fun and not too challenging. Highly recommend. I rarely leave reviews but I had to leave one on this game because I think it's very underated.
