About Trigger Happy Christmas

Breaking News... the elves have gone bad, again, and are trying to ruin Christmas by stealing all the presents. They've hot-wired the sleigh, which is flying around uncontrollably, spilling its contents all over the place.

Santa is running hither and thither trying to gather them back up again but, quite frankly, he's had his fill of the thieving blighters. Time to dust off "Olde Persuader"!

He's not alone though. While trying furiously to bring the sleigh under control, Rudolph is also on hand to supply Santa with the a few more 'persuasive' tools. You know, like flame-throwers, grenade launchers... that type of thing!

Flame-throwers? It Is the season of good will, isn't it?

Err, yes of course. I don't see what's not in the spirit of the season with dismembering elves... hmm, okay good point. Well, to make up for it, you can send electronic Christmas cards to your friends from the game. That way, you even save the cost of those little bits of printed card people usually send.
