Just thought I'd start this thread up, it plays a bit like subway surfers where your switching between three lanes with a swipe and jump.
Don't think there's a better game to get you in the Christmas mood it's got the music from the film and the locations are all real locations in the uk.
I'm really enjoying it, but I am a sucker for Christmassy things.

I think the Snowman is a beautiful story gorgeously illustrated. Just not that interested in playing an endless runner based on it.

Edit: you know what? I'm going to check it out.

Yeah, thankfully last year's app is still in my download history. That was a thoughtful, fitting treatment of the source material.

Pasting it into an endless runner bursting with IAP, not so much. I mean, come on: swipe to jump in a flying game?

You seem like it, but what seems spooky is all that stuff about collecting data from your devices for channel 4.
