The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

A christmas present for my girlfriend.
She liked it, so maybe you will.


Story:

It's christmas eve and Aida is meeting her boyfriend outside the local cinema, though he doesn't show up. So she first smokes a cigarette and then decides to go and search for him. This takes her on a journey through time and space, all the while not learning any cheesy christmas lesson.


- Meet the amazing main character Aida!
- Two different endings.
- Open ended gameplay with different paths you can finish in your own way.
- Moderatly funny dialogue.
- Bizarre minigames.
- Classic point-and-click style of gameplay.
- Gore (Of course, but not too much. It is a christmas game after all.)
- Learn of swedish christmas traditions. (No elfs or other americanish styled christmas characters.)
- A game made out of love for another person (quite freaky if you ask me).
- About 5-6 hours of gameplay.

AGS Panel Review

"An interesting take on Christmas, you take on the role of Aida who is looking for her boyfriend and ends up having to save Santa. The game actually gives you quite a bit to do as long as you can look past the sometimes strange puzzles and quirky bugs, although some may find the minigames too unforgiving."

I have to say, the start of the game did not look too promising, but it does progress into quite a charming game. There is nice animation and music, some tricky yet manageable minigames.

It's not an award-winner, but for what it is, I think it does rather well :)

There are hardly any games that are cute while still showing lots of gore. This game succeeds in that. The graphics are nice despite the weird walkcycle and the music fits the various scenes. However, the best part of this game are the puzzles. Sometimes tricky, sometimes easy, some minigames but always fair.
