Great little Christmas-themed game for the family; we had a few technical issues (ours, not theirs!) which caused us to take far too long to do this but really good fun.

Santa and the elves has disappeared. Can you find them and save christmas?

Nicely drawn images with click through puzzles. A bit of humour and some good easy puzzles. 

Our biggest regret was the navigation! Even though this was built on telescape, there were no 360 degree images and it wasn't clear when what your co-players did, also effected what you could see. With just two players we kept stepping on each others toes - closing down windows while the other player was trying to solve a puzzle - closing their view too. It was nearly impossible to solve a simple jigzaw because we kept getting hold of the same puzzle piece and dragging in different directions (when we rate this illogical - this is the part we mean).

Outside knowledge was needed. Quite easy, but that just meant that it actually didn't have any value - it is dangerous to assume that every culture would know these things AND if you knew, you didn't even feel clever. Would have been better to leave this part out. 

We really liked the puzzle in the toy factory - usually we don't like anagrams, but this was quite easy and still a bit clever in how it became visible. The reindeer puzzle didn't make sense to us. Too many ways to read the clues. Luckily the hint function worked. A few math based puzzles as well. Nothing difficult.

The humour was toilet based. The acting was nice. Great story to build a bit of holiday spirit.

This was a fun telescape game.  There was one frustrating thing at the end that I think was just a glitch, but overall it was a a fun Christmas game that put us in the spirit.

Four of us played this game together at the same time. We had lots of fun due to the varied puzzles and challenges. Excellent graphics with extreme detail in every scene. Loved playing this game at home to get us in to the Christmas spirit.

Really enjoyed this immersive family game, we all really got involved and worked together. Loved the graphics and music, left us feeling very Christmassy! The actors were brilliant and gave the game an extra special touch!

Oh what fun!  A lovely  and cheerful presentation with some humor.  The puzzles are easy - so ideal for a family.  But just because the puzzles are easy doesn't mean you'll be finished in a flash, it's a fulfilling game with story and very cute visuals/videos.  I love the combo between actors and graphic art.  

We did experience some type of glitch in the game, however, the creators responded very quickly and were able to get us back on track in no time, so we were still very happy with our experience.
