Great Adventures: Xmas Edition
Do not waste your time
This game was a minor challenge, but it was super short. I expected that I had passed the first level, when I had actually won the entire game.

I loved this game but it was too short.
I loved the game but it was too short. I found myself wanting more. Once I beat the game I turned right around and played it again. I somehow wanted something to change or be different the second time around. Would love to see more of this.

I purchased this game 2 yrs ago and finally got around to finishing it off. Was a nice break from the hidden objects or match 3. So it's more for kids but I had fun.
No walkthrough but discovered it is like great adventures lost in the mountains, there is a walk through for that so I suggust you use that.

best for a kid
I like this game but for the amount of play it isn't worth paying full price unless you have kids that plan to play it. I am in my late 30s so it wasn't the best for me.

I loved it - great use of a coupon!
If you have the other great adventures game then it is a LOT alike but if you really loved it and wanted more then I recommend this to you. It's a cute sims meets adventure task game by the developers of lost souls:enchanted paintings. I know I got at least 3 hrs out of it as I don't like to use the hints (but still used some) and I got all the achievements. The achievements are just different things you collect throughout the game, the butterflies and ladybugs fill up the greenhouse and the bones for the dog is your limited hints. Every 5 bones you get a hint and they are limited so don't use them too often.
In the demo you find that you can only see rooms once you unlock them and that's what you do throughout the game. By various means unlock doors and areas searching in each to find everything you need.
You can decorate the christmas tree and outside. There are two playable characters that you switch between and if you find one can't do something try clicking on the other. Just click and drag them to where you want them and then click on the item you want them to use.
There are a handful of minigames (6 ?), but it does have a skip button on it if you are stuck but it is very slow to fill.
There is an objective button which you can hide, along with a combine button but you can just click and drag items in the inventory to combine them.
I do find you have to scour each new area as it's hard to get all the bones and extras and can easily overlook things to interact with. Look through windows to make sure you get everything.
I just love these games as it's like the sims but with more task objectives. I like that concept and love that it's different, although it is very much like the first game.
A cute, not too hard - filler game, something to use a coupon on.

Save your money
This was way too short of a game. It took me less than 2 hours to play all the way through. It is pretty much the same as the original game as well. I wouldn't recommend it.
