With Christmas coming up I always like to dig into my collection of stuff and see what I may have missed Christmas-related.
This year I ran across a little gem, titled Special Delivery for the Atari 8-bit line (also on C64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum). It's an arcade-style game where you play Santa trying to collect and sneakily deliver gifts before you die or the night ends. And the A8 version is easily the best version, in my opinion. Wish I had heard of this sooner, it's great for 5 minute plays, reminds me a lot of a 2600 game with a little more added.
I made a review of the game for my weekly review show, Lazy Game Reviews, which you can see below. I'll be looking at Xmas games each week this month. Any comments are welcome!
Special Delivery for Atari 8-bit Video Review
My question to you guys is this: are there any more Christmas games you'd recommend - for any system? I'll be looking at more with my video reviews this month (Holiday Lemmings, Duke: Nuclear Winter, Christmas Jazz Jackrabbit) but what about some others? I really like these "Seasonal" games because, well, they're just so odd. Even if the quality of some of them I've seen isn't always up to par.
Oh and I say "retail computer games" because I'm not referring to the many hacks of games (such as Santa's Boulderdash, which isn't bad)
