App description: !!! Attention - free until Nov 30th !!!

What a peck of trouble! The prototype of the fully automatic sleigh X-M-2008 had a malfunction during its maiden flight and dropped Santa pretty ruggedly to the ground. Now the sleigh is straying around in the snowy night and loses all the gifts!

Control Santa along the street by tilting the iPhone and collect the lost gifts to deliver them to their assigned houses! Keep the simple rule in mind: Wrapping color has to match wall color and ribbon color has to match door color.

Be aware of the available time per day, because X-mas is near and the gifts need to be delivered!

Beat the highscore with hidden combos and score multipliers.

Controls
Walking: Tilt the iPhone sideways
Pick up a gift: Tilt the iPhone away from you
Deliver a gift: Tilt the iPhone towards you
Jump: Lift the iPhone peppy

Santa is able to carry three gifts at a time. But three big gifts are too much for him.
If at least four gifts are stacked in front of a house, the score multiplier will increase.

Controls take a bit to get used to at first but it's actually kind of clever.

I imagine so. It's the lifting of your iPhone peppy that I suppose trips most people up. Some just aren't lifting peppy enough.

Also, why do the screenshots say "Tilt away from you to deliver a gift to a house," while the description says, "Deliver a gift: Tilt the iPhone towards you"?

I dunno. Seems like the tilt controls were shoehorned in there just for the sake of novelty without any real reason not to include a D-Pad.

I think it was a cell phone game ported to iphone pretty early on (the game is over a year old) that has at least been recently optimized of OS 3.

I hadn't previously caught that you could jump and can only imagine peppy tilting means a sudden jerk?

Must have missed it last year in the first annual glut of gratuitous holdiay-themed games. (Although this one does look pretty. I've just got a pet peeve with games that needlessly stuff tilt controls in there when another control method would work better.)

Well, I understand peppy tilting can often lead to sudden jerks...
