Play as Santa and collect the presents in order to save Christmas from being ruined!
Santa’s Christmas Cracker is a game much like Mario, except you play as Santa Claus and you collect presents instead of coins and the enemies are toy soldiers and snowmen.
The graphics are simple and clean to look at, as is the case with most games of this genre, and the only bad thing about them is the snow – which is constantly falling. Usually you see the snow fall in the background and it is nice to look at. Occasionally, you might get one or two falling in front of you as a nice subtle visual treat. However in this game, it's a constant blizzard in your way as you try to play.
Apart from that, the game is quite simple. The controls are easy, the character is manoeuvrable and jumping on the enemies is easy to do. One thing which is a little annoying is you only have one health. Meaning if you get hit just once, you have to start at the beginning. Couple this with the blizzard and it's quite frustrating.
The music is nice and Christmassy, and the sound effects do not offend. So it wins on that level.
Overall this is a great, cool little fun game made difficult by nearly blinding conditions during game play. Unfortunate, but true.
