Angry "smiley face" isn't part of holiday spirit
The game premise is somewhat of a stretch: you match up rows and columns of ornament bulbs by sliding them, and in doing so, earn money to buy merchandise to sell in a store. Your customer is a smiley face on the left side of the screen that begins to grow impatient, and then angry, if you aren?t playing fast enough to buy that merchandise.
Sliding the rows and columns of bulbs to get matches wasn?t bad, but for me it got very repetitious. The tie-in to stocking a store just really didn?t seem to work. And it was definitely not in the holiday spirit to have a smiley face frowning at me because I wasn?t playing fast enough. This wasn?t for me.

Cracked Christmas Balls, Lumps of Coal and what else is there?
Ok, so strike one for me because I thought this was a regular shop that sold gifts and not a Christmas shop. Yes, that matters. It's July 1 and the Christmas music eventually drove me batty because it's 100 degrees (at night) and humid and miserable.
In any case, this is the most unusual match 3 game I've ever encountered. You not only make match 3 or more of the same colored holiday balls, but you don't swap, you have to drag the rows and you not only can make them a ROW of 3 or more but 3 can take the shape of an "L". Go figure. There was NO explanation of that one. Then, there are cracked balls, lumps of coal that NEVER go away and customers to keep happy (so feed them treats) and a daily dollar amount you have to reach but it's NOT a time management game at all.
This was probably the most boring match 3 game I've ever played but, go ahead, give it a whirl, it just might be the gift you've been shopping for.

SALES GOALS NOT MET?
I've NO IDEA how a person is supposed to meet the sales goals when I CLEARLY sold ALL 3 items and there were NO MORE items left to sell.
In addition, with the smiley face turning grim, I STILL received a 3 1/2 point (out of 5) customer satisfaction rating so what in the world is this game looking for?
