It’s Christmas season once again! Everyone gets ready to celebrate the holidays, and the protagonist Holly is no different.After leaving work for the last time before the holidays begin, Holly embarks on a tale that everyone can truly relate to - the story of someone who just wants to commemorate the season of happiness the best way they could.
The story in Holly: A Christmas Tale Deluxe begins with her cleaning up her store. This is the first chapter of the game, and is played out as a Hidden Object game. In the first level, you are tasked with removing all objects in the Puzzle that are not toys. This one is kind of tricky, but that’s only a taste for the things to come in the later levels of this Hidden Object game.
You could also encounter Match 3 games and Memory Games in between each level.
Just like most Hidden Object games, Holly: A Christmas Tale Deluxe also features Hints that can be used to pinpoint objects that are hard to find. You start off with three Hints, and these will deplete and not recharge until most HO games. If you run out of Hints, however, simply click on the “?” icon and this will open up a Match 3 game.
What you need to do is to drop specific objects to the bottom of their columns. When you succeed in doing that for all rows, you get two more hints that you can use. This is a great feature; Hints are very useful because you can’t really be sure that you breeze through all the puzzles in the game. You’d need help, of course.
There is another way to gain additional hints: you’d have to look for three acorns hidden amongst HO puzzles. The Hint number automatically increases by 1 if you do that.
To keep the story flowing, each level features a short scene that shows the dialogue between Holly and one of the supporting characters in the game. These cut scenes tell you what you can expect from the next puzzle.
For instance, in the second puzzle of the game, the manager gives Holly a list of toys that have been ordered by customers. This then becomes your task, which you solve through Hidden Object puzzles.
The story in the game is quite easy to follow, and even gives players like you the motivation needed to go through the entire story. After all, you would want to see how Holly celebrates Christmas, wouldn’t you?
