Following Laird's example on Impulse X,  here is my short review of Christmas Carol and The Ghost of Christmas Presents!

[size=140]Review[/size]



[size=140]Score: 9/10[/size]

Brilliant stuff, sounds like a great game and one i really want a bash on..

Seriously need to look at my Intellivision and try and fix it or buy another one.

Don't forget that the ROM is available for free.  The cartridge game makes for a great collectible (and playing it on the Intellivision console with overlays and all enhances the experience), but you can try it out on an emulator.

Check out our Christmas High Score Championship page for more information:

Without the console, I guess that's the only way you can at least get a taste for the game. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

I hear you.  If you get your Intellivision to work, I'll be more than happy to sell you a cartridge copy of the game. :)

In the meantime, feel free to check out the ROM.  I packaged it 3 ways: by itself (for power users), in a Windows emulator bundle, and in a Mac OSX bundle.  The bundles come with nice installers that set up everything, so that you don't have to play with configurations or missing libraries.

I will be playing it through emulation when I go to PR for vacation so I can compete.  ;)  Glad you like it.
