What does Santa do all the time, during the 364 days before every Christmas night?
He does absolutely nothing but eating tons of greasy food, sitting by the fire.
Month by month, he gets so heavy that his poor reindeers could never draw the sledge, not even by a single inch, with the old fat guy and all the gifts onboard. And even if they could, what about sticking into chimneys?
So Santa needs to get back in shape (well, almost) in no time, and what's better than practising some sweat-soaking winter sport?
Extreme snowball tossing, maybe?
Go Santa, hold tight that bulky snowball, run breakneck and shoot it the farthest you can!
Rules are simple and easy to follow.
When the countdown is over, tap furiously on the action key to gain speed.
By reaching the first checkpoint (you'll see a sign with a red/yellow arrow painted on it, next to the trees, and a red/white stripe placed on the ground right underneath the sign) the speed you achieved will be sustained automatically from then on, and an aiming arrow will popup next to Santa.
Press and hold the action key to aim: the arrow will raise when the button is pressed, and quicly lower if you release the action key. Try to get the optimal angle in the same time you reach the final checkpoint. By reaching the end of the course, Santa will toss the snowball: the throw will be influenced by both the speed you gained in the first part of your run, and the aiming angle chosen in the second one.
CTRL (default key): action
K: change action key (keyboard / joypad)
M: music on/off
