On The 23rd Day Of PlinXmas!

Evening. So I hope none of you are too bummed that tomorrow is the last day of the PlinXmas Advent Calendar. It's been a fun month and I feel like my days of not updating frequently are behind me.

To make sure you always have something fun to occupy your time over the plinxless days ahead, I am bringing you the festive edition of the Plinx Arcade. A pile of fun holiday themed games.

First up is Super Santa Kicker which is a nifty physics game where you try to launch ol' Saint Nick into a series of chimneys, navigating obstacles on the way. I really love this game. The music, sound effects and ragdoll animations made me chuckle and the puzzles are very well put together. So play it!

Next is an adorable little game called Snow Day. You play a young lad running backwards and forwards launching snowballs at the clouds in order to keep the snow falling so he doesn't have to go back to school. Daww.

Ok, moving on to... umm, weirder pastures. This game is called Santa Hair and would be entirely impenetrable if not for it's simplistic puzzle solving. It won't be immediately obvious but the goal is to give Santa a haircut, but along the way you'll help out a cat policeman, find a motor for a monkey's boat and poke some eggs. Listen, yeah, just play it and click about. You'll figure it out.

Lastly, remember when Santa had that epic guitar battle with the Grinch and emerged victorious? No, me neither but that is the story behind the next game. Now Kris Kringle is off on a pole-to-pole tour, rocking out. Put simply, it's a Guitar Hero clone where you play metal covers of Christmas classics. Play it: Santa Rockstar 2!

What do you call people who are afraid of Santa?
