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!

game doesn't like me

I've played through this game currently at lvl 26, upgraded everything and done all the other requirements for medals, yet I didn't receive any medals. =(

*sigh* oh well, general I'd say it was a nice game. the only thing that pops in my head that would have been a nice improvement to have an option to use money to fill the hp bars. because from what I understand the hp bars only fill up when they are upgraded or mrs claus is killed. that's generally okay, until they're both maxed, because then the only way to completely refill them is to die.

found a glitch at lvl 26

i can send you screenshots but pretty much at the beggining of the level it said stage complete so i had unlimited scatter ammo and no weapon drops... it made the level easy but i'm just saying it glitched out and you may want to find what caused that if you want the screenshots for proof i have them backed up on a flash drive because i'm random like that... oh yeah clearly since i'm at lvl 26 i've enjoyed your game, like the theme and the overall gameplay is pretty smooth...

Fun enough game

This game was pretty fun, I really enjoy the 8-bit style, but if you're going to try to make a top-down shooter like this you need to be able to aim in all directions. The mouse to aim and shoot doesn't work. Sometimes I'd click outside of the game and accidently pause it. A previous review said to use WASD to move and the arrow keys to shoot, and I think that is a good idea. This would also sort of help the 8 bit feel. Another annoying thing was how the kids moved way faster than the bullets. 6/10

BAd movility

Haaaa, you set bad the movement instruction instead of make her move when a key is pressed you stated that she moves when a key is being pressed, for some reason this makes that she doesnt move some times even if you keep the swad pressed.
