Christmas Tale HD

November 23, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

A simple story with tons of interactive elements to play with ...

This is a unique and very interactive read & play title with light animation and some great features. It includes a countdown clock that shows the number of days 'til Christmas and even a 'wish list' you can fill out and email to Santa (or anyone else). Unfortunately as a free app it includes a banner ad at the bottom, although an in-app purchase can turn this off. There is also very little connection between the interactive elements and the story, but children are unlikely to complain as they find hundreds of images that bounce, make noise and generally amuse.

This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
