Twisted: A Haunted Carol
Merry & Spooky Fun
I love Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, so I snatched this right up . . . This is mostly a kid's game, I think, as the hidden object scenes & puzzles are fairly easy . . . The story is an interesting take on Scrooge & Marley & the Christmas spirits, & consequently the game play requires quite a bit of going back & forth in time - but you really can't get lost . . .
The art work is crisp & lovely, even though the living room scene & the church are recycled from a similar Christmas game . . .
Overall, a fun, untimed game to play with the kids . . . !

Enjoyed this game
Lots of hog with some travelling between that is easy to follow. For those of us who are adventure challenged (lol) this is the game for us! Its a game that does not require alot of brain power but is just plain out fun. I bought it today after trying out the demo. And for the price, it is well worth the $$$!!!
And its a holiday game, so to speak..so can add this to the seasonal games I have bought!

Spooky side of Christmas
If you are familiar with the original Christmas Carol story you probably know everything about old Ebenezer Scrooge and his partner Jacob Marley. In this game you are a ghost of Marley.
You had found some of your partner?s dark secrets and for that he killed you. Now, with some help from the famous Ghosts of Christmas future, present and past you must seek your revenge and stop evil Scrooge.
For me the game was ok, I am not that excited as I expected, but I had a good time. Graphics are clear and done nicely, but sadly there was no voice overs and music was nothing special. Storyline was easy to follow and in some pats I found my self pretty interested in whole adventure. You have no map in the game, also there are no modes, and you have optional tutorial at the beginning. Hidden object scenes were mostly easy with no interaction, and puzzles not so much challenging, because of that my opinion is that this game is probably better for younger gamers. Big minus is the length, I personally prefer games which takes more hours to finish.
Over all, this game is nice, definitely not a waist of time, especially if you are looking for relaxed game with not so much challenge and mind breaking puzzles.

The Christmas theme of this game is the reason I bought it, the game was OK, nice plot, nice story line, I enjoyed very much.
But, I wish it was longer, I guess the ending means is more to come.

Good Game, Bad Ending
I enjoyed this game. It was a good "filler" game, not too long or difficult, but still fun. HO scenes were clear, objects easy to locate, puzzles were fairly simple. I was really enjoying the game and at the end when I thought we would have some interaction to get even with Scrooge for all his evil deeds, the game switched to a cut-scene. It was not a good ending at all, it could have been done much better. Over all a good game.

A Christmas Carol with a haunted twist
We all know that Ebenezer Scrooge was a bad tempered miser who hated Christmas, so the age old story of a Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens goes. But Scrooge a murderer!!!!?. Jacob Marley is dead at the bottom of the stairs with a knife in his back compliments from his partner Scrooge. The ghosts of Christmas present, past and future insist that Marley take his revenge on Scrooge and make him pay for the misery he has instilled on the locals and to make Christmas a happy occasion. A novel twist to an old story. The presentation is quite good and the story easy to follow. The dialogue is interesting and to the point revealing what must be done. The graphics are quite good, clear and colourful in the main but some areas and scenes are a tad dark as a macabre and eerie game might suggest. The clock puzzels which are used a number of times to travel between times are all the same and the hidden objects are not too difficult in fact rather easy most of the time. In my opinion a good game, well presented and well executed, I really enjoyed it and recommend it.
