If you can name all the reindeers, or know Santa's actual postal address (hint, it's in Canada), then chances are, you are a big fan of the holiday season. Of course, you don't even need to know those things to be a fan of Christmas –and if you are reading this game review, then you probably are one. And that is great, because the fact is that this game was designed for people who love and enjoy the holidays, this Big Fish Game's Christmas Wonderland.
What is Christmas Wonderland 3?
This is a hidden object game. Now, if you are a fan of the genre (or at least have played a few HOG's before), then you already know what to expect. But for those of you who have not, here is all you need to know about this type of games.
Hidden object games (or HOG's), will present players will a list of items to look for. Then your task will be to scour the screen to look for these items. More often than not, the screen will be filled with busy, detail-heavy content. Lots of objects, confusing colors, and many little things tucked away here and there. It takes both a keen eye and a lot of patience to be able to sort through the content in order to find the stuff you are looking for. Once you find and item, just click on it and look for the next.
Once you succeed in finding all the items, the game proceeds forward with the story (if there is a narrative) and then it leads you the next set of hidden objects to look for. In between, some games present players with additional stuff to do like galleries to unlock contents for or minigames to play around with.
