Christmas is an attractive topic for many filmmakers to create meaningful and fun films. Also, it is suitable for video game makers to bring exciting experiences to players. Therefore, based on a film of the same name, the developer Behavior Interactive made a great game named The Grinch. You have the opportunity to enjoy new challenges on Chrismas day. However, Instead of creating a great Christmas day, players will support Grinch to disrupt this happy holiday. At the moment, The Grinch is available on four gaming platforms, consisting of Sony PlayStation, Sega Dreamcast, Game Boy Color and Microsoft Windows.
In the content, The Grinch has the same plot as the movie. Grinch did not like Christmas due to unhappy stories in his childhood. Besides, at the foot of Crumpit mountain, the town Whoville is bustling, and everyone is preparing for the holidays. Grinch was planning to ruin the town’s Christmas Eve. He began to check the blueprints of his machines and chose a good machine to use. He dropped the machines in many private areas of Wholand, including the downtown of Whoville. Therefore, Grinch had to move around town to steal gifts or Christmas trees and collected his drawings.
In the game, players will control Grinch and explore around Wholand. There are five separate areas where players have to explore to perform the required tasks, including: Whoville Municipal Dump, Whoville, Wholake and Whoforest. Besides, there are 24 missions to complete, and the players have to skillfully control the character to complete the challenge.
To conquer 24 levels, players will have to collect enough 68 drawings and destroy 3,000 different Christmas gifts. However, destroying gifts and collecting drawings will not be simple when they appear in many different locations. Therefore, players will have to constantly move around the designated area, explore around and overcome some available obstacles. However, the missions will be interrupted in case the Whos discover the Grinch’s actions.
With the Dreamcast version, The Grinch has 3D graphics and a smooth image system. The visual details are relatively easy to see and not as blurry as the PS platform.
