I do wish a few extra commands were supported, especially those that rewarded exploration. Itís not terribly important that PUT PRESENTS UNDER TREE isnít understood (since the required method is easy to figure out), but it would have been cool to get festive (or even silly) responses to my attempts to chat with Rudolph, pet the family dog, or even (I'm such a Grinch) steal the tree.
IF vets wonít find any challenge here, but itís a pleasant couple of minutes. There is no heavy narrative, no mystery to uncover, and no serious danger to face. There are a few cute moments, and then itís all done.
I really enjoyed the straight-forwardness of this game. Usually, when I play a game, there's some combination of actions I have to perform, and by the time I've looked at the hints, I usually feel like, "That doesn't make any sense!! How on earth would I have ever figured that out?!?" but this game actually makes sense as far as what the player needs to do.
That being said, I wouldn't have minded a bit more of a challenge to this game, either, or maybe just a bit longer of a game. However, I am 35 years old, and I gather that this game is targeted towards much younger players, so I understand its brevity.
All in all, I'd just like to thank the author for creating a game that I was actually capable of completing without any help. So, thanks!! :)
