Customer Reviews


This game has a lot of charm, and that's basically what got me to download this. The overall idea is very simple, which is catching gifts. But there are also 3 modes, that keep you playing the game an extra 5 minutes at the most. At best this game could be a mediocre time waster. I think this game has so much more potential. It needs something to spice it up! It's a shame, because the artwork is so nice. I hope there will be more updates in the future, like different maps, obstacles, challenges, and upgrades. Anyways for now, it's a cute little pick up game.

Cannot remember when was the last time I played a 8-bit game

Should be more than 7 years... Time passed too fast...

Works with iPhone 3G & iPad 1

All iOS devices supported & 100% free... Cannot request anything for more
