It’s that time of year, friends! The house is filled with greens and reds, the music channels all start dropping the Wham, Buble and Mariah, the fridge fills up with eggnog and we gorge ourselves on fruit mince pie. It’s such a special time of year!
We love the season at DDNet, and one of the best things about it is that it’s also the perfect time to catch up on some games. When you’re not juggling parties and gatherings, it’s a slower time for work and it’s easier to steal a bit of time on the side to play something new, or finally get through that game that you stalled on.
Each year at DDNet we run a “games of Christmas” list, that works just like an advent calendar. We count down to Christmas by sharing one game recommendation for the season each day. Crank up the Jingle Bells and get into the spirit of the season with these!
Day #8: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge (Read our review here)
As we often talk about with this kind of countdown, multiplayer-friendly games is a big plus around Christmas time. Being able to get family and friends together to wallop one another and/or “work together” is a great, fun way to make any gathering a good time, and there are few games that have done that better this year than TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge – a brawler that reminds us all of that game that we all loved playing in the arcades.
It can be played through in just a few hours – which is, again, perfect for the Christmas party experience – and thanks to some excellent, bright, and vibrant uses of the property, every second of it is entertaining and exciting. Sure, it’s not the deepest game you’ll ever play, but when you see people’s eyes light up at the sheer button-mashing fun, it’s hard to be too critical.
Deck the halls with pepperoni!
