Mr. Splibox: The Christmas Story
Is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas as you read this? Who cares! Fire up Eyesteam's physics puzzle platformer Mr. Splibox: The Christmas Story, and then leave it on the title screen while you dance in your chair to that infectious music for a minute or ten. When you're ready to play, you'll discover X-Mas World has been overtaken by the wicked Snow Boom, so it's up to Mr. Splibox to save the day again. Move with [WASD] or the [arrow] keys, but Mr. Splibox can't jump, so you need to absorb the tiny Spliboxes (don't worry, they want to help) by pressing the down key, then tapping the up key to spawn them beneath Mr. Spilbox to boost him up. You can only build as high as you have Spliboxes to reach, but you'll find more to help as you go throughout the game. You can even throw Spliboxes at far away things by standing next to them and pressing [C] or the [spacebar]. Just watch out for enemies... use the Spliboxes to fight your battles for you, though with spikes, timed switches and more, you'll need quick reflexes to pull everything off. Mr. Splibox: The Christmas Story isn't substantially different from its predecessors, but it looks and sounds great, making it a fun little game whether you have eggnog in your fridge or not.
