Gas Tycoon Christmas Edition pipelines full of fun

Spoiler alert! Gas Tycoon 2 HD: Merry Xmas is a free diversion from the stress of family, presents, budgets and politicians ruining Christmas by doing absolutely nothing while we go broke. If you love connection puzzles you can lose yourself entirely in hundreds of puzzles. Even the complete Gas Tycoon 2 HD, which only costs a dollar, is a Best Buy

So already I can hear people complaining that I would give Gas Tycoon 2 HD: Merry Xmas a Best Buy rating because the name Xmas takes the Christ out of Christmas.I have to answers to that. Since many Roman crosses were actually two posts grounded in an X-shape, it could be argued that Xmas puts the cross back into Christmas when all the nativity scenes leave it out. So there.Besides, check your Bibles. There was no Christ in Christmas. He was just the baby Jesus. He didn’t become Christ until all those judgmental people decided they were better off with him dead. 1 Then he fooled them, showed back up, went to heaven and became Christ. But those holidays would be Easter and the Annunciation (which we don’t even celebrate).So double there.The one thing I learned as a Baptist Preacher’s Kid (BPK) is that you don’t argue with a Baptist. Even a lapsed Baptist who turned Episcopalian. Arguing will get you nowhere even if you’re right. Which, in this case, you aren’t.What you can do is get off your high horse and download Gas Tycoon 2 HD: Merry Xmas for free.The game concept is simple. Connect one or more power sources to all of the Christmas ornaments so they light up. Unfortunately, the wires for these ornaments are very much like the lights you stored last year. They’re all tangled up.

The game is simple. Connect all of the pipes to the ornaments. Figuring out which connections work can be frustratingly challenging. Fortunately, you can switch back to easier puzzles on a different level.

This may sound easy but it isn’t because the wires are all disconnected and they have to connect in the right path and order. Even worse, there are lots of loose bits of wire that no longer connect to anything. You have to figure out which bits of wire work and which don’t.At first it’s easy, but after a few puzzles you have to run wires around the side and through the top. Some wires have multiple outlets, some only one. Some power sources have multiple outlets and others have only one. You may have three power sources for ten ornaments or one for a couple of dozen.Nor will you run out of puzzles. Gas Tycoon 2 HD: Merry Xmas has seven levels with more than fifty puzzles in each. I have yet to complete a single levels and I’ve been playing with the game for months, waiting for an opportunity to review it. Some puzzles just have to be set aside for a few hours or even a few days.

You can lay rail road track, or resurrect zombies. The complete version Gas Tycoon 2 HD has Christmas, Halloween, Winter and underwater modes as well.

You don’t have to settle for the Christmas version, either. For a dollar, you can download the full version of Gas Tycoon 2 HD. The puzzles don’t change but you can change the game setting from Christmas to railroads, pipelines, deep sea diving, islands in the sky and zombies. The full package even includes a Halloween version. I recommend you simply pay the dollar up front. You’d be surprised how a puzzle you can’t solve in Christmas mode, suddenly makes sense in zombie mode.

Jenny Manytoes rates Gas Tycoon 2 HD: Merry Xmas

Jenny Manytoes would make biscuits all over Gas Tycoon 2 HD: Merry Xmas. If there’s one thing cats love it’s reaching into Christmas trees and disconnecting the wires between the Christmas lights. That and knocking down ornaments and climbing into the tree until it falls over. Now you can train yourself on how to reconnect all those lights Jenny and her friends had so much fun with.

1Remember: God forgives people. People don’t forgive people.back
