Christmas Adventure Candy Storm is a hidden object mystery game that is heavy on its Christmas theme. In it, you take the role of a rushed parent that, on their way home from buying a last minute present, is thrown into a Christmas adventure filled with snowmen, spirits and candy!
Gameplay wise, your main objective on each stage is to collect the required items to continue. Sometimes you might need to combine items that you already have, other times it might not be so obvious.
There are simple things like getting a shovel to remove snow, as well as more complicated things like getting a cog to complete a mechanism, so then you can continue on to do a puzzle. These puzzles are varied and very entertaining, and a nice change of pace from the regular gameplay of looking for items.
There is another Hidden Object mode that might be hidden in plain sight. To unlock these places, you first need to know what you are looking for. Then, certain areas open up where you can take a closer look, whereas a high quality image of the place is shown to you, with a clutter of items to go through.
In order to clear these stages, you will be given a list. Once you click on an object shown on the list, it disappears, and you have to clear every item listed.
Some objects might require further interaction, like opening a drawer or something like that; these objects are specially marked so you do not stress yourself looking for them. Once you clear these stages, you are given a single useful item from the lot.
As the story progresses, you might need a different item from the same stage you already cleared, so keep in mind where you found it so you can come back easily to it.

There are plenty of things that can aid you on your journey. Firstly, there is your journal. Every mystery game protagonist has one. This is not only useful to get your bearings in general, since you might be confused as to where to go next. It is also useful in cases where you might leave the game for a slightly long period of time; instead of restarting the game if you are lost, you can just read the journal.
You can also count on the help of a friendly sprite, a spirit creature that looks like a ball of light that follows you around. This creature guides you to your different objectives, so you always know the main thing you are trying to do. But it will not guide you through the specifics, that is up to you.
If you need more detailed help for the moment to moment gameplay, you would need to use the hint feature located in the bottom right corner of the screen. When you click on this icon, it will show you where you need to go next to progress on the stage, so you always know that you are standing on the right spot.
This useful feature recharges every minute or so, giving you a chance to think about the puzzle or section you might be stuck on instead of just relying on hints.
The art style of the game is incredibly beautiful, filled with colorful scenery and playful visuals. The setting and tone of the game is reminiscent of the feel of classic Christmas stories; this is not a religious tale, this is about the spirit of christmas as a holiday for the family.
And of course, about presents. This makes all the visuals very childlike, but in a good way. It has all the quality one can expect out of this genre of games, with all the colorful and playfulness that comes with the thematic. You have toys of all sizes, candy that never rots and magical creatures to stumble upon; the game is really a beauty to see.
Christmas Adventure is a fun classic game in the hidden object style, with plenty of Christmas spirit to get you in the mood for the coming holidays.
