Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost of Christmas - 8-bit/16 colors Arcade (INTELLIVISION) game

It's nearly Christmas, so to give you that Christmas feeling we have a nice little game for you to play. The game is called Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost of Christmas for the Intellivision console and is an 8bit/16 colour arcade title for all the family.

Guide Carol who is a blonde lady elf, through the maze-like caverns to pick up all the Christmas presents while avoiding her enemies. Along the way, pick up candy and magical snowflakes that award you additional points and help you on your adventure.

To save Christmas, you must guide Carol Greenleaf through all eight stages of her journey. The adventure concludes once she collects all the presents the Evil Snowman hid in the Frozen Ice-Cube Caverns. Carol reaches a new stage of her adventure every two levels. Each stage introduces a new cave for Carol to explore.

If the Evil Snowman catches Carol, he freezes her, stopping her adventure right in its tracks. Santa then has to use his magic to thaw her back out again! Santa will always thaw Carol back out, but will only give her so many chances to complete her mission.
Carol will work tirelessly to save Christmas for as long as Santa asks her to. Santa will whisk her home to safety, though, if she gets frozen too many times.
In order to play the demo, you'll need an Intellivision console, paired with a Cuttle Cart 3 or similar adaptor; or an Intellivision emulator to run the game in your PC.
