Christmas Gaming: Santa Hanta (PC)

You can download Santa Hanta here (It’s a German site)

If you’re not in a festive mood or you’re already sick of Christmas, here’s the game for you: Keep the Santas in this game from delivering their presents. The game uses the Moorhuhn-(Crazy Chicken) principle but instead of shooting Santa you have to throw snowballs at him (or rather them). The further they are away the higher your score when you hit them. You can collect bonus points when you shoot a Santa Claus while he’s delivering a present after knocking on a door which results in children screaming. Apart from shooting Santa you can also shoot Yetis that appear from time to time. ANother fun addition is that if you throw the snowball at Santa’s feet you can cause a small snowy explosion blowing Santa away. The game itself is obviously repetitive and only consists of one level but there’s motivation in trying to break your own highscore. The graphics, however, are quite nice. There’s festive music playing in the background which sounds like some elves have produced remixes of famous Christmas songs. It’s a fun little game for those of us who want to let off some festive steam.
