The team that brought us the 2014 Ahhhhhhhh-pp Apes Halloween Contest User Choice winning app, Halloween Campfire Stories, as well as Rock, Paper, Wizards!, ZebraFox Games, delivers with a new Christmas themed app: Present Danger. Present Danger brings a little strategy and a bit of chance to the table this time around. Players open a potentially endless string of presents, each of which contains either an item or an enemy. Items can be both good and bad, and each offers a plus or minus to the three stats (HP, ATK, DEF) that players must maintain and grow in order to help defeat monsters, including the fearsome Krampus.
Overall, the user interface is festive, easy to read, and responsive. There are several cleaver weapons including a snow globe hammer, egg noggin’ hammer, Christmas tree shaped sword, and an igloo shield. Old friends from the Campfire Stories app also show up as plushies including Felipe and the werewolf. The interface is crisp as is the game play and the items are fun to see, as are the enemies.
The replay value is quite high given the random factor of the game. It remains exciting to see what is going to be in that next present. It is also nice to have a leader board as it makes replaying for a high score enjoyable and something to strive for. Finally, the random spawning of the creepy Krampus keeps players on the edge of their seats.
Overall, Present Danger is an engaging holiday game, with professional artwork and user interface. The app is certainly worth a download and will likely consume quite a few of players’ free hours this Christmas season.
Krampus is coming with his army of Christmas minions. In Present Danger you must search through piles of presents to arm yourself with gifted weapons and armor in preparation of Krampus’ grand entrance. Feast on food to boost your health, collect weapons to increase your damage output, don ugly sweaters and chainmail to bolster your defense, or sell everything and watch your pile of gold grow. Perhaps you’ll get lucky and come across a golden nutcracker from Santa to boost all your stats, or maybe you’ll be so unlucky as to come across a golden Dale plushie from the loathsome Dale the Salesman and have to make the choice between losing a chunk of your compiled gold or your fine tuned stats. Part luck, part strategy, Present Danger presents unique game play, a holiday theme, and a little bit of Krampus to cramp your style with surprise visits. Play again and again and have lots of holiday fun!
