Christmas Games Collection


Have you ever seen Christmas games?
If you've ever played console games only (such as SNES or Mega Drive),
you would rarely come across a Christmas game.
However, there have actually been many Christmas-themed games released in the past.
Here are all the retro computer/console games I know.
One of retro consoles, the CD32, allows you to play many of titles released for Amiga
or ZX Spectrum after you add a floppy disk drive to your CD32 console.
Fortunately, homebrew/freeware titles have been released in recent years.
This means you can get into the Christmas spirit every Christmas season.



 Oh,
 don't forget to put up
 nice xmas ornaments
 in your room before
 you start the game.
 (Lol !)
