In Christmas Crisis, Santa has fallen sick this winter holiday! Ms. Claus has been cooking some of her most powerful chicken soup, but even that's not powerful enough to cure Santa from his perilous cold! He won't be able to make his first deliveries until much later than usual -- but that is TOO late to deliver ALL of the presents!

You and other elves have been chosen to help make up for Santa's missed time! Fly over cities and drop presents down chimneys. Maintain a 70% success rate to save Christmas! Watch out for planes - you don't want to crash!

Christmas Crisis is a great freeware arcade game for Mac more...

I thought my meaning was clear: I thought it was silly for a developer to release a Christmas game in mid-summer. In early August I want to think about Christmas about as much as I want a case of the clap, Christmas is tough enough to deal with in December.

This game has you running (or flying) franticly trying to get a present in as many chimneys as you can. The controls were fairly clear and I could at least use them. However, I find the game easier if you use the mouse for shooting presents, as you can aim everywhere within the circle.

Speaking of the circle, if made me think that if a plane touched it, I would be over. My guess is that you may run into this problem. If this were to be updated, make the green circle more transparent.

The graphics looked as if they were pulled off the web and the sound as well. Not a problem. The Christmas music and the other music, which I presume had nothing to do with Christmas but just sounded good, were at least not a cacophony, but weren't majestic masterpieces (obviously).

There isn't much difference between the levels except for increasing difficulty. Why not make power-ups or speed boosts or anything? Maybe a hidden plot?

It would be a nice kid's game if it weren't so hard for me, a twenty-year-old. I barely got through by level 6.

There's a guy down the street from me who keeps his Christmas creche in his front yard year round (mainly because he's too stoned to remove it), and every time I walk by his house I get a bad case of the willies. When I see something like this when August is still in single digits and the temperature outside is in triple digits, I have the same reaction. Im sure this is a great game, well designed and fun to play, but why oh why, mister developer, couldn't you have held off releasing this until maybe Thanksgiving? Why can't you try designing a game called something like The Grinch Who Stole Labor Day?

I have absolutely no idea what you're even saying...
My guess is that you don't like Christmas? You like Christmas on time? Or late Christmas? Probably my second guess...

Oh, be nice! It's not like there won't be more Christmases. Just think of it as ... uh ... extremely early.

This is a fairly fn game, but it is in my opinion a bit too hard, the first level is a mad rush and it's still fairly dificult to beat... Or maybe it's just me.

Also there isn't any clear instructions about what you are meant to do, it took me a few tries to even find out what you are meant to do.

But other than that it's pretty good, it just needs some of the gameplay issues resolved.
