Santa Claus in Trouble (2002)

by CDV & Joymania Development

Christmas is coming (sooner or later), so here we have a nice seasonal game for you:

In "Santa Claus in Trouble" you have to help Santa to pick up all his lost presents and save Christmas for the children. So you have to run through a 3D winter wonderland, avoid the evil trolls, jump like crazy to catch all the presents and reach the exit in time to go on to the next level.

Published in 2002 by Joymania and CDV, "Santa Claus in Trouble&" is still the best freeware Christmas game you can think of. There are excellent graphics, nice x-mas tunes playing in the background and the game is challenging for kids and adults as well (first few levels are easy, but then it gets really hard).

This game was so successful, getting more than 3.000.000 downloads, that CDV published a commercial sequel of it. If you want to know more about it, please visit the official CDV site.

  • eMTe :
    Almost forgot about this one. Christmas is coming, so it's time to remove dust from it. Still best Christmas game Ive played and a mustplay for upcoming time of the year.
  • Scythe :
    Give this to your kids for Christmas. It's not exactly a brilliant platformer, but when you need a seasonal game, this is one for (you guessed it) Christmas.
  • Chroelle :
    Plyed it, and loved it. Silent Night playing in the background so softly that I didn't even bother me, and I really hate x-mas carrols.
    The game is one of the best holiday games ever. And it is going to be on this site for free download.
    Now we have seasonal games for Easter and Christmas. Keep them coming people.

  • Dizi :

  • Railwaymodeler :

    /Me downloads to play. :)

  • eMTe :
    I played this game about 3 years ago, it was added together with a couple of other minigames to one of gaming magazines. Didnt know that it is freeware and suddenly found it (I wasnt even sure of the exact name). Hadnt time to check it again, but back then it was superb.
