The evil Santa has escaped his frozen tomb and sent an undead reindeer to destroy Father Painbringer and the Ghoul Academy. Celebrate Christmas with everyone's favourite priest as he decks the halls with explosions and bullets.

Here's a brief but fun little Christmas game to mark the start of the Xmas season. For those who've played the first Ghoul Academy ,you'll be familiar with this game and should get a laugh out of the Christmas twist on the old classic.

Controls - Arrow Keys to move ,look up and look down
X - Fire weapon
C - Jump (tap to double jump)

If only I could spend my Christmas doing this.

I'm a fan of the original, and this didn't disappoint me, in fact, I greatly liked this game more so then the first. I love the Christmas theme and diverse enemies- they give a genuine air of originality to this game instead of looking like a fancy repackaging of the first like many game designers have a habit of doing around here, the music made the game a little more fun and light-hearted, and I've noticed you've made the game noticeably easier then its predecessor, but it was still a moderate challenge; all of which give you a solid 10/10 of ten from me. Keep up the good work, I really hope this becomes a series.

Sincerely Michael Christian.


now thats what i call a dead christmas


Taken the platform game to a new level. Way to be, huge selection of power ups. All my fives r belong to this.

Brilliant review - glad you liked the powerups ... much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to play this, seems to be getting very little love so far!


But for some reason, my ghoul meter never fills up so i'm stuck on the first level. Despite this, i find this to be a good game. Keep up the good work.

hechaos responds:

Hey Glitch, thanks for the review! I'll take a look at that and get a patch up.. haven't seen it before but it should be an easy check/fix. Thanks again :)

It's Christmas

What a good time to shoot Santa Ghouls, Well done on a good seasonal game. As someone underneath does not appreciate how difficult these games are to make I suggest they find out. Merry Xmas in advance!

hechaos responds:

Hey thanks MarkySpark.. season's greetings to you too. Not sure what that first reviewer's problem was... clearly had some issues. Just a light hearted xmas game ... not everything has to be super epic extreme Modern Warfare 7 ;)

Cheers again!
