Christmas Adventure: Search for Santa

Darned elves trying to steal our Christmas

Score : 6.5 fair

Storyline: You play Tom and you have to find Santa since he is lost, and after you have find him, you have to make sure that Christmas can be celebrated.

Map and graphics: The map is small and not very detailed. The background is plain white, probably to imitate snow. Several graphics are new, such as Tom (and the other ones that look like him), the evil witch, the reindeer and the houses. They are, as the author states, not realistic. The way the reindeer walks is funny to look at.

Music: Christmas songs of course! Those set the mood nicely.

Good: There is humour in this short D-mod.

Not so good: There are no borders what so ever, which is always very annoying. The inside of houses do not have any borders either, which is also annoying. The doors are replaced by some stones, which is fine, but since there are no borders, it takes a while to fiind the exit. There is an extra folder in the file (with an extra dink.dat file) so you can not immediately play it, but have to move the folder first – this could be confusing for newbies.

Overall: A little Christmas D-mod that is not very difficult.

Fit for: Anyone who likes Christmas!

Hmm, it's propably a D-Mod.

Graphics. They are just so HUGE... but you might get a little confused because it's like Dink with his hardiness moved a meter away. But let me ask. There was a really good (compared to the other graphics) Santa Claus there, but for some reason, it was not used in the D-Mod.

Music. There are only 3 MIDIs... but I doubt you'll pay much attention to them.

Sound. Well, when you think about it, there are no sounds, as there are no sources where they could come from.

Map. The "can I go there?" farce. The map is blank white, either because of laziness, or because it's snow. I think it's the 2nd.

Story. Find Santa Claus. Then have a fun Xmas. That's all. Really. That's all. (Oh well, I bet you didn't expect much more anyway)

Humour. There is humour. As pretty much always.

Overall. A good D-Mod to play if you have about 10 minutes of time.

My first review

Graphics: Yuck! Plain graphics made with paint or something. Walking looked bad also. 3.5

Map: It didn't have any borders, so I had to try every place to know is there anything or not. 6.8

Plot: Santa is somewhere.. Find him! 8.5

Music: Not saying anything, because I have no sounds

Humor: 9.0

Overall: An easy and kind of funny DMOD.

.:The search for santa:.

Plot.Tom got to find santa

Graphics.heh the graphics were cool, they where not the best one but they were funny playing with.

Midi the midis was good and it was enough with three midis for a litle D-Mod like that.

Overall.A nice litle D-Mod

This is a funny D-mod, with some funny new graphics.The music is OK, but the background is solid white.The storyline may hear little bit naive, but lovestory bethween Tom and Witch was kinda freaky...
If you have couple minutes to take from you life, this is good for that.:\

Hmmm, a romp of sorts. Play this around Christmas time.

Graphics: Yep there’s some new stuff here, and as the author says (apologises for) they are large and crude, but they do get the job done.

Map: Very small

Music: with a Christmas theme

Gameplay: It’s very simple, minor plot thing with Tom getting it on with a witch just before Christmas, but I guess his goodwill was extended.

Overall 7 out of 10

A Christmas Dmod by Sharp.

A Nice little Dmod about the joys(??) of Christmas.

The Good: Sharp’s heart was in this Dmod, she made a simple little adventure, in which you could save Christmas or not. There were several funny spots, and I got a good chuckle from playing the game.

The Bad: OK, the characters were nothing to write home about, BUT that was the point of the game. Very simple and sweet.

Overall: A very enjoyable romp. I wish my grandbabies were still here, as they could have played the game. Thank You, Sharp
