It has become an annual tradition to patiently wait for the annual release of Christmas Stories. This year, Elephant Games brings back Christmas magic with A Little Prince. The Royal Wedding of Prince Edward and Rose was going as planned until an evil witch broke in and cursed all the guests, turning them into animals and household objects. Do you have what it takes to stop this madness and break the curse?
We love magical these Christmas Stories games are. Although this latest installment features more fairy-tale elements than usual, the game still remains as enchanting and as Christmas-y as its predecessors. The storyline does not break any bounds, but paces at just the right speed and with its charming characters, manages to be interesting enough to have us following along.
Again and again, Elephant Games executes the cheerful holiday spirits to perfection. Each location is filled with colorful Christmas ornaments and lavish special effects. The cutscenes are equally stunning, especially with the excellent animations and the realistic character movements. When it comes to the music, Christmas Stories: A Little Prince features a variety of pleasant traditional soundtracks that will sure get you in Christmas mood.
The gamepaly in Christmas Stories: A Little Prince is very familiar, but that does not mean that it is not entertaining. Despite the hidden object scenes that we thought were a little basic and the puzzles that could have used some more complexity, we enjoyed every minute of the game. We also appreciate that there are so many clickable “hot spots” in each scene, virtually every single element of the scene interacts with you upon your click – these are some really nice touches that enhance the experience of the game.
Christmas Stories: A Little Prince has a standard HOPA length of around four hours and the bonus chapter should take experienced players at least 50 minutes to complete. Other features in the Collector’s Edition include a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, screensavers, replayable hidden object scenes, replayable puzzles, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, and a secret room.
If you want to get into the holiday spirit a little early, Christmas Stories: A Little Prince is a beautifully-executed game that will help you do just that.
