Light Up Christmas Brings a Little Festive Cheer to Your Device
Hot on the heels of his update to the hugely popular Four In A Row HD, XDA Forum Member mocelet2000 has developed another original and addictive puzzle game, this time with a seasonal twist entitled Light Up Christmas.
The premise of the game is very simple. There’s no power reaching the newly decorated spruces, and it’s up to you to make sure it gets there because after all, a Christmas tree without little flashing lights is basically just an ordinary tree with stuff hanging on it. Right? Simply tap the tiles to rotate and move the power lines around, and route some juice to that tree.
It sounds simple enough, and to start off with it is. However as you progress through the 140 unique puzzles, they quickly begin to become a bit more difficult, especially when you’re trying to power multiple trees. This isn’t just an existing game with a some tinsel and a few baubles thrown on it either. The developer wrote this from scratch, and made it available for the bargain price of £0.00*, think of it as an early Holiday present.
*Prices given are in GBP, exchange rates may vary.
