There may be just the smallest of windows for Dionous Games’ Watch Over Christmas to make a mark, but after previously releasing on PC and Nintendo Switch, it’s now time for the point-and-click madness to unfold on Xbox. There’s a chance this will be the most Christmassy game you will play this year.
Sold as a point-and-click adventure with a modern-day twist, Watch Over Christmas arrives on the Xbox scene to deliver a tale; one that focuses on Cisco, a 12-year old boy who is the only one who can save Christmas. See, old Santa has been kidnapped and without him, Christmas just does not happen. It’ll be up to you to find the big man and ensure the magic sweeps across the globe.
Priced at £14.24 from the Xbox Store, Watch Over Christmas works story-driven angles, adds in classic point-and-click elements and provides enough exploration and puzzle solving opportunities to ensure you’ll be playing it from here, right over Christmas and possibly beyond.
With no less than sixty superbly drawn backgrounds in place, an original score to aid immersion and a certain special companion to help you along, we’re not sure there’s much to dislike about what Dionous Games have put together. If there is, we’ll be sure to explain all in an upcoming review.
