Hi, welcome to the post-Christmas Special!


As expected, more holiday games arrived a bit late for Christmas Special and so we can play them now - as every year - and they are good! Amajeto excells with the third Xmas game(!), definitely not worse than the two precending (if not better). In Akatsuki no Yado's game you're probably a bit confused Santa who messed up presents and now needs to figure out their recipients. Then comes lovely Neko Donut game about ghosts, and the WE closes Rinnogogo's shorter game, New Year greeting card to their games' players.

Have a good time and enjoy!


16 presents

The third Amajeto's game in holiday season 2022 doesn't differ much from the previous ones. The graphics is really good looking and raisies the level of playability, puzzles are quality and clever, and hints aren't vague. Enjoyable game.
The cursor isn't changing, save option, one ending.


Present for You

presents.pngIn Akatsuki no Yado's game you find yourself in a corridor with seven doors. You can enter six rooms, and in each room is a kid dreaming about a present - you have the presents already but don't know which belongs to whom. Childrens' dreams are coded and to unlock it, you need to solve a puzzle or two in every room.
The cursor is changing, no save option, one ending.


Unmask

The ghosts are turning things in the house upside down, hiding them or letting them look like something different, and your goal is to discover all abnormalities there. To move around the house, click and drag the games screen.
The cursor isn't changing, autosave, one ending.


Doll House

Rinnogogo game is on a shorther side this time because it is meant to be a greeting card for the players. It's sweet and tender as all their games, and you are supposed to explore four rooms of a doll house and solve several nice puzzles, and feed a cat.

Unmask can be a little finicky with clicks.

I had particular problems with a ghost hiding in the leg of an easy chair and the one hiding as a flower in the head of the dinosaur skeleton.

You might have to click more than once to get these to register.

If you have trouble with the Open switch in Doll House:

While it appears that you would click on and drag the switch to open it, you merely need to click on the raised part. If it won't throw, you've still not done something.

Make sure you've removed the screw on the bottom floor.

Thank you!

That was my final ghost.

Fun game. Awesome find, writers!

Another great game from Amajeto, but I do hope they don't start in with those sliding puzzles (like those old "Traffic" puzzles). Those seem to be pretty universally unpopular.

When trying to find the solution for the green bar graph puzzle:

Take a close look at the wooden train.

But not too close a look—taking in everything is a mistake!

Only one of the train cars contains four trees. Focus on that car.

The center car has four trees, each with a clearly visible height.

The four trees have apparent heights of 4, 1, 3, and 2. So use 4132 for the heights of the bars in the green bar graph puzzle.


I'm putting in an early Santa request for next year—I want a Dismantlement Christmas tree from Gam.eBB!

I'm stuck on the black and white grid

I see the 9 letters on the shelf clue and I see the tablet clue.

I also see that "dog" and "cake" are letters in the shelf clue.

It looks like the blocks are supposed to be selected to spell these two words.

So out of the nine blocks, seven of them should be selected leaving two not selected.

But no matter if I select the seven letters as black or white, it doesn't work.

So stuck.

Figured it out:

I was on the right track. You don't spell dog only cake. Dog is white so c a k e remains white and all other squares are black.

Last one - the one asking for the 3 shapes.

The puzzle is asking for 3 shapes. There are three different clues, two with 4 shapes and one with 3 shapes.

I thought that maybe the car clue was the solution. Nope. Then I thought maybe use the shapes not in the car clue. Diamond, circle, triangle. Nope.

Then I thought maybe count the shapes in all the clues.
1 Diamond
2 stars
2 donuts
2 triangles
2 squares
3 circles
That means nothing. I tried 1 Diamond and 3 Circle and tried brute forcing the number 2 spot. Nope.

This one is not making any sense at all.

Mistake in earlier post regarding shapes. There is only 1 triangle not 2, and 1 Diamond. Now it is even more confusing.

Thank heavens for the video walk through just below the game.

The shapes puzzle.

Don't ignore the cat. It has 3 question marks too, but not for solving.

Note that the car has 3 shapes to match the 3 question marks on the cat and the puzzle.

This is where I could not make a connection.

Car is three letters. So is cat. Next spoiler tells what I missed. If you have figured it out by now, don't click.

Assign a letter to the 3 shapes for car - C=star, Donut=A and R=square. But you want to spell CAT. T=Diamond.

Lovely game and a joy to play!

Glad you got it figured out, 4red3s! 🙂

Your hint really helped. Thank you!

Also there are more than ghosts to find. There are shapes that are hard to see. I found 4 of these. They look like the shape that is made when you find (I think 4 of) the ghosts.

Very cute and sweet game. :)

'Twould appear that I don't know how to spell HOUSE. Ah well.

I really enjoyed Akatsuki no Yado. Some puzzles took some thought to figure out what was needed.

For the final puzzle"

the symbols spell out what the picture is ie for the xmas tree: Diamond = T, Square = R, Circle = E, Circle = E. Write the letters for the picture under the symbols for each picture. Eventually you get enough letters to spell CAT which is the one you have to guess!
