The holiday season is in full swing, and now that we’ve entered the month of December, it’s time to get into the spirit of the season.
Developed by mDecks Music, this game is a delight and, if you’re a puzzler, you can’t go wrong.
Concept and Gameplay:
After reviewing iPhone and iPad games for a few years now, I’ve grown to enjoy certain genres I otherwise wouldn’t think twice about. Puzzles are an example, and Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music features many of them.
Essentially Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is a very large compilation of assorted puzzles, from guessing Christmas songs via a sound byte to solving picture puzzles.
One of the very unique things about the game is that it’s progressive, meaning players don’t get to choose what kind of puzzle they want to solve. Instead, you must chain-play through puzzles in order to reach a high score.
As far as the puzzles go, there’s a pleasant mix of simple and complicated levels to solve. Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music seems to get more difficult as you progress through puzzles, which is perfect for those who like scaling difficulty.
I found myself stumped on the zoomed in picture puzzles a few times, but there are hints that’ll help you if you can’t solve the puzzle.
Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is a fairly straightforward game, but there are a few things that help separate it from other puzzles. First, the game allows you to easily stop playing no matter your progress, and you can resume at your last puzzle with no penalty to score or the like.
Seeing as this can definitely become a marathon game, this is a feature I was really happy to stumble upon.
Also, as I mentioned above, Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music includes hints and boosts for players if they happen to get stumped on a puzzle. The game is pretty generous with hints when you first start playing, but if you run out you can purchase more via the in-game store.
Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. In terms of value, Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is definitely a lot of bang for your buck. The puzzles are fun to solve, and best of all, there’s variety.
If you’re looking for a game that’ll get you into the holiday spirit, Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is definitely one that shouldn’t be passed up. I highly recommend it if you’re a fan of puzzles.
