My Dad's the Grinch - Ludum Dare 28 Game Review

A Christmas game! How were there not more of those? Ludum Dare did run pretty darn close to Christmas, and Christmas was in the ratings period! Much like new Christmas songs, good Christmas games are hard to come by, so it's a double bonus that My Dad's the Grinch (by @MatthewVroman) is so much fun!

Be careful or you'll only get ONE present!
The game gives you 8 different gifts, randomly chosen from a bit more than the 8 (replays will have new items mixed in so that it's not just the same game over and over). Your goal is to figure out which present is which using the sizes of the gifts (some are small boxes, some are wider and some are taller) as well as your four tools: shaking them, weighing them, getting a hint about it or x-raying it.

You have a limited quantity of each of these, so use them carefully and remember what's what later on!
Of course, the more you get right, the less gifts there are, so it becomes easier and easier! The game is a blast to play, super simple so anyone can play it, and definitely something a grinch would do to their kid. You should definitely play the game here, and you can check out the game's Ludum Dare page here as well.
