App description: ** The 2011 Christmas Favorite is back for '15. Updated and WhamBambified! **

Christmas 2011 saw the first news of Occupy North Pole protesters attempting to shut down Christmas. Early reports are coming in of elf operatives spotting occupiers nearing Santa's workshop. Reinforcements are headed to the scene as well.
Elf Suit up!

The critics of the controversial Frostmaster BL19 Sleigh will be eating crow tomorrow...
- SEE the CC-9000 Peppermint Chain-gun
- HEAR the 130mm Snowball SAW
- FEEL the ground pounding Coal Cannon BFC-22Bravo

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to man the blazing guns on Santa's sleigh as makes a last ditch effort to keep the workshop running and the gifts on schedule. Saving Christmas is up to you - will you gun the sleigh tonight?

And while you're saving Christmas
-Amazing magical north pole art will give you warm fuzzies as you blaze your way to Christmas Eve.
-No actual elves or occupiers were harmed in the making of this game.

If you loved Zombie Gunship or any of those other AC130 games, then this game will be kinda OK.

Curious, What would you see a light version doing. We made it one level survival mode.

I'm buying this. I got Zombie Gunship for free the other day and have had way more fun with it than I expected, so I'm happy to pay for this version.

Edit: This is survival mode only as mentioned earlier. You start with all weapons, there are no upgrades to buy, etc. kind of a bummer. On the plus side, the hip-hop Christmas music on the title screen is awesome.

Santas Giftship is meant to be a fun and inviting pick up and play high score type of game. We hope to add a lot more in the future and you'll see a lot coming from us!
