Holly: A Christmas Tale Deluxe
Great Christmas Game!!
The 60 minute trial doesn't do it justice. Just needed to adjust brightness on my computer, then had no problem locating the gold pine cones. Unique mini-puzzles, gameplay, awesome graphics and absolutely love the festive music and storyline, relaxed challenge. I don't think anyone could refrain from tapping your toes to the music. My favorite Holiday Game ... 5 Stars! Merry Christmas everyone!!

Great game for All
Got this game and played it all the way, throroughly enjoying it. Grandkids came and play it also. You can actually find everything if you're not looking for a 30second gratification. And it is a wholesome game for all. Several puzzle games to break up the HO scenes keeps it lively.

Not As Easy As It Looks
Music is good, objects hard to find (especially gold cones), but a fun, and somewhat challenging game. Played the demo in 55 mins. Seems longer, so good value. Lots of "find the differences" puzzles with NO skips. Can get more hints by playing match 3 whenever you have 0 hints. All, in all, a good seasonal game. Story is simple, but nice. Its a buy for me. No excessive clicking penalty either!

Super cute holiday cheer
This game is super cute. Great holiday pick up. Hidden object scenes are bright and cheery. Extra bonus items, candy canes and santa doll are a great addition. I recommend this game to cure any holiday blues!

What a fun Christmas theme game!
We didn't even finish the demo before we purchased. There are many levels of "we don't want to stop playing" fun! We haven't finished, but from what we have played the story is nice and the music uplifting. There is a variety of games. So far, there have been hidden object, match, find a number of objects and find the difference. From the map, it seems we have quite a few more levels to go and we have only played for about half an hour. This will be a nice break during the sometimes hectic holiday season!

Fun game for adults ...not for the little ones
Most of my games are HOs but this one is challenging even for me. Heaps *and I mean heaps* of objects all over the place. Most are on top of each other so it's quite tricky to spot them. Those gold acorns or nuggets are so well hidden...well done! If you like HOS try this challenge!
Lots of colours and bright happy scenes which is a nice break from the dark HO games. And yes as the others mentioned the music gets you in a cheerful happy mood.
You get HOS, mini games and puzzles which makes you think - so lots of variety in one game. Yes I recommend this game but it's not for the little ones they will struggle with this. Or chill out and sit beside the younger children; enjoy the game with them.

Good game but not good on the eyes
The game itself is fun. The graphics and sound quality is also good, but like some of the other reviewers comments, finding some of the hidden objects is difficult because (a) some are very small and (b) some are too well hidden.
Now if you have perfect vision then points (a) & (b) probably not occur, but, be warned all you fishes out there that wear glasses. This game is not good for us!!
Because of that I didn't buy it.

Played Again and Again
This time of year, this is my go to holiday game. I've played it so many times; I can usually complete the whole game in a couple of hours. No worries, it will take the first time player much longer.
Is this game overly complicated? No. Is it a bit child-like? Yes. Is it just plain holiday fun? Heck yeah!
Help Holly save Christmas through various puzzles such as HO scenes, jig-saw puzzles, spot the difference and a few varied others. In one, you'll have to select the correct Santa bag for the country he needs to deliver it too based on the bags decor. A previous reviewer complained about the constellation puzzle, and after having solved it numerous times, I will tell you this; place the large stars first (drag and drop to their spot) and as you add more stars, the outline of the reindeer will become more and more prominent, thus making it easier to place all the stars on their correct spots.
No voiceovers and cheery holiday sounding music. Very cartoonish graphics.
This is just one of those games that an adult can sit back and sail through and a child can enjoy a bit of a challenge and some holiday magic. It's not overly challenging, just simple and fun for the whole family.
