The Perfect Tree Spruces Up the Holidays


Stargard Szczecinski, Poland - Polish game developer Anawiki Games today announced the release of The Perfect Tree, a Christmas-themed Match-3 title. Based on the classic Christmas tale of the same name, the game tells the story of a lonely little pine tree and the player's efforts to help it become the perfect Christmas tree.

"We've wanted to do a casual Christmas game for some time now," says Anawiki owner Roman Budzowski, "so when I discovered this charming story about a lonely tree and all the animals of the forest helping to decorate it and turn it into the perfect Christmas tree, I decided that this would be the perfect theme for such a game."

The Match-3 portion of the game is fun, relaxing, and highly polished. Levels are completed by making matches over certain target squares, and feature a variety of obstacles and bonuses. However, it's the progression between the levels that distinguishes The Perfect Tree from other games of its ilk.

Atthe beginning of the game, the player is presented with a bare pine tree in a wintery scene. The focus of the game is in decorating the tree, using a variety of bulbs, lights and ornaments which can be purchased with Stars, which are the both the game's currency, and measure of performance. Stars are earned by performing such feats as chaining together large combos and beating levels in rapid time. The stars are then spent in between levels to purchase decorations for the tree.

The Perfect Tree is not Anawiki's first seasonal creation. This fall, the company released a Hallowe'en-themed installment in its popular Runes of Avalon series. "We've found that there's a high demand for seasonal games," says Budzowski, "People get excited about the major holidays, and we had good results in trying to capture that excitement with Spooky Runes. We're hoping that The Perfect Tree will be similarly well-received."
