Charles Dickens' classic holiday story is given a revolutionary 'steampunk' look by PadWorx Digital Media Inc, the company that created the groundbreaking App of the Week 'Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition.'

You will not only witness Ebenezer Scrooge's personal transformation through 130 pages of lovingly abridged text, but for the first time you will become part of the story through breathtaking and interactively immersive graphics, music, and sound.

Whether you're traveling through time and space with Scrooge and the spirits of Christmases Past, Present, and Future, powering up and manipulating an assortment of wonderful steam powered devices, or just marvelling at each chapter's unique page-turning contraptions, 'A Christmas Carol's' steampunk-style animation, illustrations, original score, sound effects, and hidden Easter eggs of bonus content will draw you into the story's unforgettable lessons of darkness, despair, joy and life.

The design and execution of PadWorx's 'A Christmas Carol' is so innovative that it has been directly endorsed by the Dickens family. That's high praise, indeed! And in keeping with the holiday spirit, a portion of all sales will be donated to charities around the world.

'A Christmas Carol' is the second title in a series of new, interactive eBooks created for iPad by PadWorx Digital Media Inc. Built from the ground up on PadWorx’s proprietary game engine, this revolutionary vision of what an eBook reading experience should be creates the definitive user-driven experience through text, animation, video, gameplay-like elements and touch screen technology.

Surprised by no-free upgrade

This may be a worthy book but I don't like the $5 upgrade charge that caught be by surprise. I won't buy again from this publisher.

Could have done much better

I agree with Aquaman2, this is nothing compared to Dracula. For Dracula, there's almost surprises on each page, and you could just feel the great effort they took in making it exciting & enjoyable. It seems like they just put the steampunk effect on every page here so that they don't have to do much else, or be innovative, as they were with Dracula. I feel like they were just rushing to get this out before Christmas, and didn't bother to put much thought into it, as they did with Dracula. Dracula was worth the price, not this one. This is a boring and disappointing read, can't quite bring myself to finish reading it.

C'mon guys! You did well with Dracula, keep up the good work!

4/5 stars

The latest update made this app great.

This was a decent app when it was first released, but some of the interactive features were unresponsive and frustrating. This seems to have been fixed with the newest update though. I still want to swipe at some things instead of tapping, but I'm glad the features are responding now. Great app.
