Wow, talk about eye strain! This game reminds me a lot of the Big City games (I have them all) and the ones with the park rangers (can't remember the name of those games). Very much the same with piles and piles of stuff to look through. Extremely small items and colors are blended into the background.

I did like the collectibles though. You had to find the items in the 12 Days of Christmas. What took me a minute to figure out was that you had to find that many, e.g. 5 gold rings, 6 maids a milking, you get the idea. Again, extremely hard to see. The only collectible I found fairly easy to see were the candycanes.

Even though I like the "no brainer" straight HOP type games now and then, and this one could have been a great game, my eyes just can't take the strain. I had a headache very quickly. Good luck trying to find things.

As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. A lot of people have far better eyesight than I do, so they will find this game to be quite fun and just what they are looking for. Too bad, disappointing and not for me. Thanks for the reviews.

I read that almost everyone was having problems with this game. I guess still having Windows XP does have its perks. I had absolutely no trouble with this game. It is the most recent in the series and though I don't have them all, I liked this one. Some Items are rather hard to see but it is worth the look. Twelve days of Christmas collectibles, candy cane collectibles, reasonably easy games (believe these were really designed for the younger gamers) but enjoyable even for us oldsters. I love the theme. Christmas is my favorite time of year and these and the Nutcracker games are my treat to myself. I hope everyone can get the bugs worked out as this is a nice, enjoyable game for the season. Merry Christmas to everyone in the pond! Remember, Jesus was a fisherman, and he is the reason for the season.

I don't usually like HO games, but enjoyed the first 4 of this series. I must say that I agree with dancemom1 that some of the scenes are extremely difficult - items crammed together and objects virtually impossible to see. I had to use the hint button quite a bit, but will play it again to see if it is any easier!

P.S. I have played it again and found it just as annoying. It is now deleted!
