Basic Story

You play Wendell, Santa's personal assistant. The big night is tonight, but there are a few problems that have to be taken care of first. If any one of them goes unsolved then it could mean having to cancel Christmas altogether this year. That is simply not an option, so it's your job to make sure that everything is taken care of in time.

Overall Thoughts

This is a great game. As is always the case with A. Bomire's games, it is well written, hot, and free of bugs. The story and puzzles merge together to make an enjoyable and believable game (unless, of course, you're one of those lunatics that think Santa Claus doesn't really exist).

Puzzles/Game Play

There are a lot of puzzles in this game, and if you are one of those people who don't like to have to work a bit to get to the sex then this is probably not for you. The puzzles are not terribly difficult, but they aren't exactly easy either. The main thing is that they make sense within the world that the author has created, and when this is the case, solving puzzles can be an experience
that adds to the overall enjoyment of the game.

Sex

The main sexual interest is Mrs. Claus, and what a hottie she is. Things between her and the big guy have been a bit strained lately, due to the fact that his interest in sex has been absent in recent months. Well, if he isn't going to take care of his wife, then someone has to, and you're just the elf for the job.

A. Bomire builds the sexual tension quite nicely throughout the game. Although there is no actual sex until the end, there are a few experiences along the way that will keep your motor running.

Once you have saved Christmas, and Santa is safely on his way to deliver presents to all the little tykes, then it is time for a little alone time with the missus. Joining her at her cottage, you are treated to a very nice little scene that can play out in multiple rooms and includes more sex than most men (or elves) could hope to have in a night. But it doesn't stop there. It seems
that the Claus' have quite the little pad under their cottage, and who is waiting for you there but Sara, a friend of Mrs. Claus who has come for a visit.

If you liked what happened upstairs, you're going to love this as you proceed to do both ladies all over the underground love nest.

Technical

The thing that always impresses me about A. Bomire's games is not only that they are free of bugs, but that he tends to do some fairly complicated things, and they are still free of bugs. There are little details throughout, like description changing slightly depending on what rooms you're in, that make the game seem not just clean, but polished.

Extras

The game has a very interesting way of adding some multimedia to the mix. With the correct login and password for the in-game computer system, it is possible to bring up a couple of 'videos' stored on the system. The videos are actually a series of still photos with a running commentary of what is going on in the video. They read like illustrated stories, and are pretty damn hot in their own right. Once you access the system, there is also an option to skip past all the puzzles and go directly to the end of the game. So if you are the type of person who doesn't like puzzles all that much, you have the option of just solving this one, and then skipping the rest.

Final Thoughts

To repeat myself, this is a great game. It has a nice story, good characters, logical puzzles, and hot sex. If you haven't played it yet, I highly recommend it. Don't wait, download it and play it now.
