♪ Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree ...


Christmas Games Collection


 Have you ever seen xmas games?
 If you have played games on consoles(eg. SNES or Mega Drive),
 maybe you could come across very few xmas games.
 But actually there are many xmas-themed games released so far.
 Here I'll show all titles for retro computers/consoles I know.
 CD32, one of retro consoles, allows you to play many titles
 which were released for Amiga or ZX Spectrum originally
 after you could add floppy disk drive to CD32 console.
 Fortunately homebrew/freeware titles appear one after another in recent years.
 In other words, we can enjoy and feel xmas atmosphere
 every xmas season comes.



 Ah,
 don't forget to decorate
 beautiful xmas ornaments
 in your room please
 before you start the game.
 (Lol !)
