Merry Christmas to all of you, although if you are reading this it is probably a day or two after Christmas but none the less I hope you’re in the Christmas spirit today. Today I bring you a game that is the result of two classics coming together to make a new Christmas tradition and it goes by the name of Mega Man Christmas Carol.
That’s right Mega Man plays Scrooge here as he is taken to meet and defeat his Christmas ghosts. It truly is a Sci-Fi tale for the ages – although absent of Tiny Tim – and with its distinctly Christmas scenery and music you cannot ask for much more really.
Mega Man Christmas Carol is a boss romp, in which you have no levels to get through but you must instead just face off against these four ghosts. A lot of time and effort has been put into this game to really make it feel like the Mega Man games of old, keeping much of the charm and dynamics that made this series such a hit.
Average play time – 15 minutes
Mega Man Christmas Carol is not for the faint hearted as the difficultly level here is rather high. It’s a novel take on a classic Christmas story and therefore one that must be told on Christmas. Can you save Mega Man’s Christmas?
Be sure to play Mega Man Christmas Carol here. And I hope everyone is having a great Christmas holiday.
