Deck the Halls!

Christmas is just a few days away... and while Santa is out on a trial run in his sleigh, the evil South Pole Troll and his army of Penguins invade the North Pole!

On the way back to his workshop, Santa is blasted out of the sky by one of his very own North Pole defense cannons and is sent spiralling far-off into the distance.

Now Santa must find his way back home, defeat the Troll, and save Christmas!

(Xbox Controller):

On Windows, we recommend using an official Xbox controller for the best experience. Although any controller using XInput should work, we can't guarantee the button mapping for non-official controllers will always be correct. There isn't yet an in-game button mapping screen, so please consider using another software, like JoyToKey (https://joytokey.net/en/), to map your controller's buttons to the keyboard assignments below if your controller isn't compatible.
