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!

Thats a lot of Christmas red

(the blood I mean lol) Pretty fun game but I will have to agree with the others. Aiming needs to be better- more free based. Other than that. keep up the great work!! :D


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Really addicting and fun but the aiming system could use work.

Pause noise (@Ultiran) + Full review!

The pause sound is from SMB (Super Mario Brothers) On top of that, well I enjoy the game a lot and hope to see more from you. it reminds me of the arcade games like Metal Slug. The art is good, in fact, my favorite kind of games are 8-bit or 32-bit or however many bits you are using. The upgrades are helpful for sure, I have played some other games where some upgrades between levels are pure shit, but not in this case. The music is nice and festive, like any Christmas games should. The references are funny, like the fat kid acts like a boomer, in the way that he explodes and sends projectiles flying towards you. Uhh, what else?... The concept is hilarious, and I like all the blood-stained snow. I would likely play this again, and again, and again. So the playability is good. Plays kind of like firefight mode in Halo games like ODST and Reach. It is very effective type of game, but still remaining quite simple. I like how you can move with either arrow keys or WASD or left click or spacebar to fire your weapon. The pause sound is also a good reference, it seems like you put an ample amount of time into this truly great game, I can't say anything negative about it because I can't find anything negative with the experience of playing it. It is sort of like a minigame but a very good time waster for sure. Another good thing is, the way the kids attach are diverse and they are not all kids with melee weapons like a hammer or the sword, lightsaber, claws etc. They have inner tubers among their ranks! Ah, I found something negative! Note that that can be some of the most useful feedback: You only shoot in eight different directions, I want to shoot in 360 directions, one for each degree. The monotony of it all is a downside as well, other than that, 5/5 10/10! Thank you!
