Christmas Wonderland

 

Christmas Wonderland IntroHave you ever heard an English Christmas carol that enumerates a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas called "The Twelve Days of Christmas"? First published in England in 1780, it is still widely popular. For example, last year the iPhone 3G sang the song with modified lyrics in the TV commercials and this year in The Simpsons episode "The Fight Before Christmas", where a "Muppet"-like Simpson family with Katy Perry sang their version of the song, "39 days of Christmas Days". Actually Christmas Wonderland is based on the lyrics of the carol. Playing the game you'll have to collect all the presents given by the true love during all the days of Christmas. And if you don't remember the list, don't be sad — the game starts with this wonderful song.

 

 

Christmas Wonderland is a combo of hidden object scenes and different puzzles. You'll have to spot the differences, insert the candy canes into the locks in the correct order, match the two of a kind and much more.

 

Christmas Wonderland Toy ShopThe introduction part of the Christmas Wonderland might be skipped, but personally I enjoyed listening to the carol, telling that "On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me 12 Drummers Drumming, 11 Pipers Piping, 10 Lords-a-Leaping, 9 Ladies Dancing, 8 Maids-a-Milking, 7 Swans-a-Swimming, 6 Geese-a-Laying, 5 Gold Rings, 4 Colly Birds, 3 French Hens, 2 Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear Tree". By the way all the music in Christmas Wonderland is really nice as it's full of the holiday spirit. After the carol ends Santa appears to tell you that all the gifts were scattered all over Wonderland. He wants you to find not only the items due to the carol's list, but also some other toys and animals in order to bring them to the kids in time. Have you ever wondered how Santa prepares for the Christmas? It's your time to get to know!

 

Christmas Wonderland MarketYour adventure begins at the Santa's office. Actually the game is not of the adventurous kind. It's more of hidden object scenes and different puzzles. You'll have to spot the differences, insert the candy canes into the locks in the correct order, match the two of a kind and much more. At the same time the game is rather static — there is no interactions or walking back and forth and looking for something to be added to your inventory.

 

Leaded by Santa Claus you'll visit different locations such as workshop, toy store, roof of the houses and finally the rooms of the kids, where the presents are awaited. You'll have to help the Santa's team making the presents, loading the sleigh and much more. And all you need to succeed is to be attentive and careful finding the objects! Sometimes you'll have to be pretty smart in order to understand that when you're asked for American Football you have to find the ball used in this game.

 

Christmas Wonderland Dining RoomThough the puzzles are not at all brand new, I wasn't annoyed with them, as everything in the game is about the Christmas. Don't get me wrong, but if the game had any other theme, I'd probably grumble that its developers failed to make an interesting game. But the fact is that the developers made the great job creating a real atmosphere of the holiday by means of good artwork and nice music. And sometimes it can work out! Christmas Wonderland is right the case.

 

Hardly progressing through Christmas Wonderland will be hard for you. But if you get stuck be sure that the hint button recharges fast. It looks like the big Santa's sack and when it is all blue you can click it. Besides the items mentioned in the carol will be sparkling, if they are in the location, so that your eyes will catch them easily. All the puzzles are shippable. And personally I skipped some of them not because of their complexity but mainly because of their humdrum. On the other hand, tastes differ. So maybe you'll like the puzzles.

 

Making long story short, Christmas Wonderland is not really challenging especially for the experienced HOG-players. But if you still lack some Christmas mood, that's right what you need!

USA wants Julian Assange head, they treat him like a terrorist, but the nembur one terrorist in the world, which is called MONSANTO (GMO poisoning food to poison all peoples around the world) and which is from the USA is still free!!!!! instead of harrassing a man who post true news cables on the web, USA and Europe Gov's must arrest big terrorists like Monsdanto (and/or poisoning vaccines factory) as the charges against such terrorists like MONSANTO are the following:Crime against humanity,Poisoning peoples,Poisoning hearth and biodiversity.USA and Erurope suppose to be develloped and human right countries>>> big lies, because they are popisoning us and our children with their Genetic Modified Foods, as many scientists said before they get harrassed or murdered to shut them up .Same thing for the pollution, USA and Europe pretends to find solutions, but it is a lie of big petrol compagnies>>> why don't they builds Hydrogen cars ( as invented by MR Paul Pantone, and then he get incarcerated // or magnetic powered cars engines like the Bedini', minato' or perendev' engine, again someone which is (was) called MR Troy Reed has built such cars, and want to sell them, but he got killed .. hem hemmm! killed by who?, I let you think by yourself: Gov's and Petrol companies),(find infos about these issues on youtube.com , care2.com , wiibeez.com , gmfreeireland.org .. ..So why not to arrest the real terrorists, the real powerfull firms and persons which put our life in danger, and kill slowly (rapidly i must say) the earth instead of harrassing with fake cases peoples like Julian Assange.Please share this post or copy and paste it for peoples knowledge and information about what's happening! before this post get deleted by ..(I let you devine)

I have also been slowly lsiong my muchness (on a side note, Johnny Depp is an awesome Mad Hatter). When I went to college I sorta got stuck in that rut. I dated the same girl until just recently that would constantly dump me and I'd always go back to her. She'd always treat me like crap. I guess I was really just trying to hold onto something that had been gone for a long time.In high school I had friends and we'd go on ridiculous adventures together. I enjoyed the thrill of this so much. We still talk about doing these things all the time, but when we get together all we do is sit around. I feel like I've lost my creativity (or muchness if you will). I have started to miss them so badly that I can hardly imagine living the rest of my life without them. I'm a senior in college right now and I enjoy it and I'm happy, but it's an empty happiness. I'm on the cross country and track teams here. Running has become like a business and it's only enjoyable when I do well, not just going on a run with friends like in high school. While in high school the team and I were like family, but anymore my college teammates seem distant. I have one really close friend here and we hang out all the time, but it's not really exhilarating like it used to be. Don't get me wrong, he's one of my best friends, it just feels like something is missing. I don't want to lose everything I had and felt as a teenager.Sorry I don't have a solution to your muchness problem, I just figured it's nice to know you're not the only one out there. But if you find a way to get your muchness back I would love to hear it.
