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!

fun at first

once you get to level 18 its ass. as fun as it is at first the game is so repetitive at later levels, a boss fight would have been great to spice up the game since there are so may options, but its generic. power ups, well the good ones anyway, dont last long and are very unsatisfying. Its not that the game isnt good, but its too boring at later levels, nothing new is added to make it fun, its just run around and spam. so if a boss or two were added, maybe better powerups and not so boring game play, it would be better. another thing is the music, CHANGE IT UP! its very amusing at the start but a new soundtrack would have been nice. just make some improvements to the aiming. it can be a real pain when moving and shooting

It was okay, I like the retro styling, and the fact that this is a defense game, but the biggest downfall for me is the aim. You can only aim in 8 fixed directions. To accurately aim at a target, you'd have to move the character rather than the pointer.

it seems that people now think that they can jus make pixlated art and its a good game, but this proves that wrong

Pretty good...but one thing...

Love the fluid and quick motion, yet have no "sliding on ice" like most games with speed (why would they do that anyways? It takes more programming too). And also the upgrades and crazy plot. But there is one (and another little one) thing that bothers me, and costs a lot of stars, is who you could only shoot in 8 directions, unlike most point n' click shooters, and the arena could be bigger. Fix this (easy to fix) component and you'll have my 10 star, 5 Pico face thing, favourite...and everything else. :D

Great Idea, Poor execution

This could've been so much better if Mrs Claus could shoot in all directions, in stead of just eight. The game just becomes too chaotic after a while, when you have to be mindful of not only avoiding enemies and making sure your mouse is aimed right, but also if you are in position to hit your target.
