Bah, humbug! With a recession currently biting at everyone's wallets, the tale of A Christmas Carol is perhaps more relevant than ever in the long dark winter. People feeling the pinch - particularly City bankers only getting fifteen times a usual person's wage instead of twenty times - are more likely to be saving what they can, and many employers could be accused of Scrooge-ism.

So with Disney re-imagining the Charles Dickens classic, perhaps it's time we all had a little bit of a visit from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, and learn about how to be happy even in these dark economic climes. This game from Sumo Digital takes you through the journey of Ebenezer Scrooge in the form of a point and click adventure, guiding the penny-pinching old geezer through his many supernatural episodes on Christmas Eve.

The genre of game suits the Nintendo DS well, with interactive stylus play, and you can use the other features of the handheld to blow and shout into the microphone to influence game play. During your adventure, you'll find over 10 single-player mini-games that you can pull, shake, drag, rattle and tap your way through, and if you have a friend you can play a "Pass the DS" multiplayer mode so you can solve puzzles together.

With some immersive animated cutscenes that play out like a storybook, and a detailed cartoon presentation that will appeal to audiences of all ages, the tale of A Christmas Carol has never been so beautifully recreated. Join Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Marley and other familiar characters as you see the true spirit of Christmas.
