Gift Wrapped – Holiday Time Waster

Gift WrappedOoh, a holiday-themed Time Waster that doesn’t suck! Gift Wrapped is a great Flash hair-puller from Nitrome. The premise is thin and actually doesn’t sound that promising–you have to find your gifts among the pile of wrapped presents by shape alone, based on the picture shown in the box at the top. At the beginning the game is really easy and I was prepared for a letdown. However, it gets harder fast, as first it starts changing the orientation of the wrapped presents and then adding more similar-shaped gifts to the pile and using more of the same giftwrap patterns, all of which make it harder to find the gift you’re looking for. You start out the game with 30 seconds on the clock, which steadily ticks down, and bonus time gets added for each gift you pick correctly, and when your time really starts running out is when the hair-pulling begins. Like I said, I wasn’t expecting much, but Gift Wrapped turns out to be a pretty fun, addictive little game. Post your high scores in the comments–I’m only up to 470.
