DOES MAD SANTA EVERY SHUT THE FUCK UP
I can only get to 90% with mad santa because He keeps dropping presents, If i try to avoid them i get hit by a mine, I fi try to avoid the mine i get hit by the presents
Well, I have to say it. It's boring. I can't get into the game and it is way too fast. It just dosen't have a good base of concept. It just needs a story. Slow it down a bit, too.

Very hard to play and makes no sense..
I agree with Dibbs
The game is just too fast and while you can get a little better at it the game is still frustrating and there are parts that are impossible or screw you up completely, not to mention there is too much happening in the game at once, the graphics are nice and the music is nice though.
... Well... Sorta...
So... I'm playing the game and as I'm flying along at blazing speeds, suddenly I'm faced with a conundrum. How do I avoid this situation without getting smacked by a mine or some other weapon the enemy is firing at me? Occasional failure is understandable, if not necessary for a real challenge, but 9 out of 10 times i find there is no way around this predicament, get slowed just before the finish, and fail. The portals are particularly useless I believe. especially when you have a power-up, such as a shield (in reference to the 'Santa race') with said portals and just because a teeny bit of your head touches the top, or a single toe touches the bottom, you are flipped with no power-up. But all that aside, what REALLY bit me was you could be cruising at 1 kilo-per-min for at least 10 seconds while the enemy flies by you waiting to get an apple (which would direct you into a mine anyway and slow you down once more) or a ring which seemed to be shielded by several, inescapable mines. I also found it confusing that despite my best efforts I could not defeat the 5th boss. All the other bosses were defeat-able, but the 5th one... I don't know. It's abilities to not only pummel you while beneath it, fire rockets at you from behind with no ability to tell when it's coming and even if you DID avoid it, it destroyed the rings in front of you. What? Well that... sucks... It was quite amazing however, flying by at 60 kilos-per-min and having simple routes of rings, and, for the most part, a mild challenge for bosses. Maybe I'm just God-awful at this sort of gaming, but I find that it is quite impossible to go even remotely close to scotch-free in a level. If you go for a new one, I'd say try throwing in either an ability to speed yourself up (not equal to the ability the rings do) or a minor projectile of your own protecting you from others. I don't think that either one particularly lowers the difficulty all that much, as you'd have to aim the projectile, and the constant pushing of a key to increase your speed lacks the power of a ring. Hope this review was helpful. Overall, frustrating at points but mostly a joy.
