SANTA'S DELIVERY is the ideal game for children of all ages (4-94).


Santa has a busy Christmas Eve. Delivering all his presents to the girls and boys whilst negotiating hazards such as slippery ice-covered roofs, wandering snowmen, snowballs and melting icicles.


A multi-level game with superb graphics and arcade action.


Santa leaves home laden with presents before daylight breaks. To save time and to make sure children don't see him, he drops the presents down the chimneys. To do this, position him over a chimney and press <SPACE>, then go on to the next house by jumping the gap between the roofs.


Some of the children leave Santa pieces of Christmas cake and Plum Pudding to help him on his way. If he indulges in these it will increase his "Belly Bonus" and if he manages to drink the glass of sherry which will eventually appear, his "Belly Bonus" will increase his score at the end of the screen.


As you progress through the game, various hazards will appear - snowballs that need to be jumped over, melting icicles and moving snowmen that need to be avoided.



After the main program we have included a seasonal screen compilation and festive music feature with a name key option.
