Here's a bloody fun Christmas holiday surprise for all our chums here on Newgrounds!

It is the year 2020 and the spoiled children of the world have gotten greedier with each passing year. Santa couldn't take it anymore, so he killed himself and now all the children are raiding the North pole to find out why there aren't any Christmas presents this year. Santa may be gone, but Mrs. Claus is still alive and she's EXTREMELY PISSED OFF at how all the kids couldn't give a damn about her late husband. Now, the time has finally come to make the children pay the ultimate price for being on the naughty list!


Arrow Keys / WASD = Move
Mouse = Aim
Left Click / Space = shoot
P = Pause Game
M = Mute

***NOTE*** We've now set it so the game gets exponentially more difficult. Once you've collected all the medals and made it past level 25, see how long you can last and compete for the high scores, because the enemies will get much stronger and faster from that point onward!

Hope you all have a great holiday season and thanks for playing our game! Big thanks to Tom and Newgrounds for the continued support of our game projects! Have fun painting the snow red!

nothing more fun then killing kids


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great in 2010, still great 6 years later. Nothing says the Spirit of Christmas like murdering bad kids with rocket launchers, machine guns, land mines, metal blades and much more.
I'm surprised though that I had trouble just getting to level 25 back in 2010 but now I managed to get to to that level and beyond without dying once, not a big deal for others but it was interesting that I managed to get better at this game by not playing it for 6 years.

Best Christmas game ever.

Wow! This game is much better than Kung Fu Santa. Don't get me wrong. I like Kung Fu. It's just you've improved the control responses now. Plus I get to kill bad kids. Great job!!!! ^______^

This game was alright. I miraculously had no problems with lag, but the controls and mechanics are what got me. For starters, the cursor (at least, the default Windows cursor) is white. Much like snow. This made it difficult to see where I was supposed to be shooting. Even while the whole screen was red, with all the things that were going on, it was hard to see my cursor anyway. Speaking of shooting, it was very hard to aim due to the fact that I needed to focus on both aiming with the mouse at some obscure location and evading enemies, not to mention positioning myself to fire, since there are only 8 directions!
The upgrade system is nothing new. In fact, it's a step down from most other "hold the line" type games I've played. Typically, there are more upgrades, they cost more to buy, and you can buy a repair for your "tree" or a heal for your character. After roughly round 15 (and that's an estimate), I had maxed out everything and was just seeing how far I could get.
Then I picked up so many 1-ups that, after around half an hour, I'm still going.
Also, the mine launcher was suicide to pick up in the later waves. The range was so short, that you essentially need to close-combat specific enemies in the middle of a lynch mob.
Other than that, I had a bit of fun with it. I think I'm gonna just stop at wave 30, though.
