[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - All Santa's reindeer have caught the flu and cannot fly, it's nearly Christmas morning and Father Christmas has bought an old circus cannon to launch himself through the air. That's the premise of this free mobile game, Crash Bang Christmas, - launched by one-man independent games studio, Jazzlebags Games.
In this platform puzzler, it's up to you to fire Santa out of his cannon, gather all the presents and successfully deliver them through the chimneys before Christmas morning. Deliver all five presents on each level and Santa gets himself a nice mince pie.
"Santa has always been a bit of a Luddite and from what I've heard he is also very distrustful of the postal system," says Andy C Watson of Jazzlebags Game Studios. "So when the big guy approached me asking for help I knew we had to think fast. I had an old cannon lying around that I'd drawn up in Photoshop a few weeks earlier for Ham Sandwich - a piglet stunt performer that I'm currently working with - so we figured with a bit of training Santa could use that to take to the skies. It looks like we were right."
