I thought it was a pretty funny game. Good job on it. The concept is pretty simple, too, which makes for a nice game.

Really nice idea! I found it a bit hard with the limited options you could choose but other than that I thought it was really thought out. Nice one!

Overall a very smooth experience. The music got a bit repetitive after a while. Some hints seemed not to be that useful to me but the reason could also be my lack of sleep ;) Enjoyed this a lot!

Definitely the best game i have played so far :D Well polished, complete and bug-free. GJ

Very smooth and polished game. I enjoyed playing it. Not sure how well it fits to the theme though.

Great little puzzle. Although a bit too easy if you know what you're looking for.

Woaw, awesome graphics.

Simple game, but I played it with a big smile !

Nice humor and graphics. Good job.

How do people make games this pretty on 48 hours?
17. Dec 2013 · 05:44 CET
Very fun! Maybe a little too easy :P Great job!

Neat idea. I was able to get all 8/8 after a few tries.

A bit too easy for me, but would be nice for kids.

I found the hints to be a super awesome system! Also, nice humour sprinkled throughout.

Great level of polish, keep it up!

The polish on this, especially the menus and screen wipes, is really impressive.

Funny game, good job!

Really interesting mechanisms and gameplay. This was fun. And funny. The X-Ray is kinda overpowered, though xD
Managed to open all presents but it seems some of them change after each play, so that's awesome. The graphics are great, and everything feels very polished. Then only downside would be that the theme's implementation is very loose. The text in 'about' pointing to the theme was funny, though xD

I thought I was going to have to crack open the word document for this document what's in what present...

Awesome! This was a lot of fun and a great idea. Very nicely done!

Great game! It was hard as hell at first, but when I figured out just how one should play it, it became more like memory game and less like frustrating-limited-resources kind of game. And that's where the fun begins (it gets too fast to almost too easy, so after the initial few times replayability is limited).

Couldn't bring myself to give 5 stars for graphics, but otherwise 5 star all the way. This game is original, funny, used the theme, fun, and I couldn't break it at all. Great job!

This is awesome, really well polished and designed. Nice animations and I love the art style! Rated highly. :)
