Christmas Eve Crisis review

FREE

Manufacturer: InterAction Studios

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

With apologies for posting this a day early, Christmas Eve Crisis is a fun game in which you get to help Santa make his deliveries.

Help Santa recover from a sleigh accident and make his deliveries in time in Christmas Eve Crisis, a fun game for all the family.

It's Christmas Eve, and Santa's having some issues. His shiny new sleigh malfunctioned in midflight, scattering presents far and wide. Your task is to guide Santa as he searches for gifts and delivers them to the correct houses. See also: Group test: what's the best game for PC?

Christmas Eve Crisis is another holiday-themed game from the makers of Piggly Christmas Edition. You guide Santa through a side-scrolling landscape via arrow keys, navigating various obstacles as you complete the tasks. The animation is very nice, and the music is pleasant. It's an enjoyable diversion, for sure, and appropriate for children.

InterAction Studios offers Christmas Eve Crisis for free, probably to promote its other games (you must click through a series of ads when you exit the game). It's definitely worth a download, though. Casual games and older children will enjoy its challenges, though it might prove to frustrating for small children.
