Disney’s A Christmas Carol – the game, not the movie – is being released to tie in with the movie of the same name and to be available to gamers just in time for the holiday season.


Of course, pretty much everyone knows the classic Christmas tale by Charles Dickens called A Christmas Carol. And almost everyone is famili8ar with that grumpy old character named Scrooge. Well, Disney’s A Christmas Carol for Nintendo DS draws a whole lot of inspiration from the original Dickens story, while the movie seems to be a bit more interpretative.

The game lets you explore the supernatural adventure that Scrooge himself takes when he’s visited by three extraordinary Christmas spirits during the holiday season. It takes the form of a point-and-click adventure, kinda like a hidden object, mystery or puzzle game. You play the role of the Hand Of Fate and go through the story by exploring each scene and interacting with the characters to trigger the next event.



All the in-game dialogue and descriptions are actually written in that old-school Charles Dickens style. Plus, there’s a ton of additional content that comes with this game, including the full Dickens novel in its original form, an advent calendar, a sing-along collection of five Christmas carols, 14 unlockable mini-games and a “pass the DS” multiplayer feature for family play.

Depends. For story, probably The Walking Dead. For single player gameplay then probably Skyrim. For multiplayer gameplay, Lego Marvel Superheroes. Yeah I know the last one was aimed at a younger audience but I liked the open-world gameplay and the fact that players could fly around to wherever the hell they wanted, playing as whatever character they wanted to be and they had a choice of whether to stick together or not.
