Play through 5 different games, all connected as one in this Christmas extravaganza of a game.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all, we present this game as our present to you.

****If the game LAGS, press "q" to change the quality (in game only)****

UPDATE v1.1! Made a small adjustment to the trophies menu so you can see what you need to do to earn a trophy, just rollover the ? (also grayed out the ? icon)

Can you earn all the trophies? That's the real challenge of the game. It saves the ones you earn though, so don't feel obligated to earn them all in one sitting (Although you need to play the game all in one sitting, you can pause by pressing "p")

I recommend lowering the quality if you're on a slower computer. Press 'q' in game.

This is my first big AS3 game. It was both a pain and a joy to code.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas.


unique game

One of the most unique games and a great idea to base it on the well known nutcracker - the music makes it a joy to play . My first 10/10 on newsgrounds


One of the better games on here. The music was of a quality I have not heard in a while. The fourth level is hard, but beatable. The boss is pretty fun too.

I am awed.

This game was nothing short of magnificent. The gameplay was flawless, the controls weren't difficult to get the hang of, it had it all. Plus this game was not too easy (for me anyway...others might disagree), and I realize that the trophies will be impossible to get after seeing what you need to do to get them. I also liked how the game went with the music, only I was too busy playing to realize until the Fence Jumping level. All in all a great game, keep up the good work!

Great Xmas Addition =)

Great graphix, original idea, multiple gameplay variations, fun, lots of replayability value (eg trophies)
At some points the game was either too slow/ too fast. Too slow when the first cutscene was supposed to play, and too fast when riding the horse became a matter of mashing the button.

Great job guys, overall I loved it =)

10/10, 5/5
