Christmas Adventure: Candy Storm
Great for beginners
this game was way to easy and I only got 18 mins on the trial, that was a joke. I would have likely bought the game if the trial had been the hour that they say it is. I just don't buy games that don't give me the full trial. A little boring, didn't grab my attention in the 18 minutes I got to play it

Very Short Game
This game is cute and fun, the graphics are not as crisp as some others, but it is very short. Much shorter than other games of this type. Not really worth the money.

Far too short...
As a soft release this was ok BUT only got 30 minutes of trial, and after buying it only had an hour of play time left. Had I got an hour's trial, would only have got 30 minutes for my money.
Only 4 different scenes to work with, which wasn't really great value for money.
It was ok; too many HOG scenes really and they were very easy . Could have been a much better game with longer play time, and more places to visit.
No choice of modes, but luckily only real sparkles were to highlight HOG scenes.
Quite a few items were misleading in HOG scenes, as obvious major bad translations! 'a plummet' was a scales weight #not a plumbers plumb line# as an example.
Music got a bit annoying at times too.
Felt it was made on a tight budget, and 'devs' just because it's Christmas doesn't mean that anything with a Christmas theme will do.

For Beginners Only
Based on the Demo:
This game was very true to the holiday theme but I just couldn't find the will to play for long. Due to the simplicity of the HO scenes and the lack of a complicated story I would say this game is perfect for beginners who want a fun time.
The HO scenes had many objects mislabeled and the logic of the use of different objects was lost on me. Also, certain specific actions had to be completed before the game would even let you into different areas of the same scene. Even without the tutorial (which I skipped) the game held your hand and walked you through everything.
It's not a bad game...it's just geared for a younger and/or inexperienced player.

I had great hopes for this game. For one, it isn't demonic and dark. Secondly, the subject is one of my favorites: Christmas! Couldn't be better, right? Not. I have played HOGs for years but this has to be up there as one of the most frustrating games I have played. I kept thinking 'what is wrong with me that I can't find what I need?' I felt like a total idiot and first-time player to HOGs. For example, when stuck and a hint is needed, the only help you can get is direction to the scene where you need to go. That's fine and I expect that BUT the game does not seem to know what you have in your inventory that is required to complete the scene it is directing you to. If you have not collected inventory items needed to complete that scene and advance, you are out of luck. All you get is repeated dialogue. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this game. I wanted to give it the old college try but after 30 minutes I gave up. It was not worth it. I wish I could have given this a 4 or 5 star review simply because I would like to see more 'light' HOGs but I would be dishonest if I rated it more than what I experienced. Oh well... on to the next one and hope for the best.

Completed this game in about 2 hours, it was a nice game but lacked any challange, the game was over before it had really began.

This was a very boring game, wished that I had not wasted a free game coupon on it, but glad I didn't waste money on it either.
