Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Grinchmas! is a holiday game that allows you to play as "Mean Grinch" or "Merry Grinch." Mean Grinch flings snowballs at the houses of any noisy Whos down in Whoville to keep them from singing and playing music. Merry Grinch flings presents to the houses of the Whos. There are two modes in each. The first is Classic Mode, where you rack up as many points as possible before running out of noise tolerance or time. Challenge Mode has a variety of goals to meet. There are easy, medium, and hard difficulty levels for each activity.
Is it any good?
GRINCHMAS! is fun and playful, but don't expect to be engaged in deep game play. After all, lobbing snowballs and presents doesn't require all that much brain power. There's a bit of challenge in aiming correctly, but you can just as easily fire off as many snowballs as possible to aim for a high score. Merry Grinch has to match the color of the present to the house of the Who, but it's still not all that difficult to do. This is a fun little holiday app about flinging objects, in the vein of Angry Birds -- just a whole lot easier. It is one that the whole family may want to try out.
