A Christmas Blackout

When it comes to Christmas, some people aren't happy unless they go all out and blind their neighbours with dazzling lights and decorations, and if you were to, say, encounter A Christmas Blackout right as your house was about to be judged to win a decorating competition (to win all you can eat gingerbread, no less!), why, that would be the worst. Possible. THING. So help our heroine in this short holiday point-and-click adventure by Carmel Games as she tries to get the lights back on before the judging committee has to go. Just click on things to interact! The icon will change depending on whether you can pick something up or otherwise fiddle with it, and clicking an item on your inventory will make sure it tries to be used with the next thing you click on. It won't take you long to light up the night, though one puzzle may be a little unintuitive, so let's just hope she shares some of that sweet gingerbread victory with us! I'm probably not going to ask if she doesn't, though. You do not mess with people who go so far as to put up Christmas wallpaper.

Not a bad game, but not their best. Some of the spots you need to click on are really hard to see and one of the times you get you'll have a hard time understanding where is goes...

It's not that the game was tough, it's just that

I walked back and forth and searched every pixel to find the specific chunk of snow to put in the kettle. That location is too close to the entrance of the house. Additionally who wants tea made from the snow on your sidewalk? Use tree branch snow!

I second Infant Tyrone.

Why doesn't she have a sink in her kitchen? What does she do on a dry summer day? Go all space station and purify her urine? It seems like the writer has never seen/used a kitchen. That's not how you make tea, and it's much easier to light a burner without anything on it. Images of Fred Mertz and Ricky Ricardo pop into my head.
