Scribble Preceded by Gift Wrapped Followed by Frost Bite

Gift Wrapped is Nitrome's first mini game, released on December 1st, 2006[1]. In it, the player must find an item from a group of presents within a time limit. The game starts with a time limit of 20 seconds and increases by about five each time a present is found.

The game was made a Distributional Game, and was one of the twelve games made available when the Distributional Games page was launched on August 25th, 2011. Gift Wrapped is the first winter game and first mini game, and the eighth game made by Nitrome.

Trivia

  • For the first 120 points, the present will be in a different coloured wrapper.
  • All gifts except the candy cane and ring have a counterpart that tries to trick the player into clicking the wrong present.
  • Nitrome described Gift Wrapped as a time waster.[2]
  • The timer used in this game is later reused in Pest Control. This can be noticed once it reaches 10 in Pest Control, it starts clicking to 1, the same way the timer in Gift Wrapped does.
  • Upon Frost Bite being released, the entire game box for Gift Wrapped on the front page of Nitrome.com was removed, with no way to access the game except through direct URL. A few years later it was moved back to a games related section.
  • The in-game music was made by Q Music and is a remix of Jingle Bells, a famous song used for Christmas.
