If a book is judged by its cover, game's judged by its graphics.
Speaking of visuals in Holly - a Xmas tale, I should say the game features colorful and gorgeous hand-made graphics that makes it look like a good-old Disney Xmas cartoon. Bright, and eye-pleasing toys as well as adorable Santa, elves and the main heroine will surely delight kids and make grown-ups recollect their childhood.
As for the gameplay, Holly: A Christmas Tale is a hidden object game. Easy and absorbing Ispy levels mix with spot-the difference ones. Brilliantly delivered comic stories that you encounter between the episodes just add more dynamism to the Ispy gameplay.
According to the storyline, Holly who works as a shop assistant at a toy store is to help Santa save Xmas and deliver gifts to kids from many parts of the world.
In each location, you'll have to play all possible variations of Ispy games. On some levels you'll be asked to find the objects listed to the right of the screen - just like in traditional hidden object levels. Sometimes, you'll be looking for hidden toys in the rooms and closets when the lights go out and you'll only have a flashlight at your disposal. When in Africa, you won't be able to communicate with local children, and thus, you'll have to find out the gifts they want by the signs on the wall! But the most interesting level is when you'll have to find the bags with the symbol of a specific country.
Holly: a Christmas Story is a high quality game with gorgeous handmade graphics, terrific sound and sheer variety of mind-benders that all your family members will like.
