Play if you dare one of the oldest online Christmas games made for the internet. Don’t be fooled by the fact it first appeared in 2004 and the graphics look as if they belong in a museum and the music drives you mad after half a minute – so how can it be any good? It’s all part a devious plan to get you to play just ‘one’ game, to prove to yourself that games have come a long way in the last ten years.

And when you emerge two hours later wondering where the hell the time went and realizing that your boss standing behind you, only then will you begin to understand the meaning of ‘addictive’ and how early online game-makers understood that with limited graphics it was better to keep things simple, so simple that it somehow tuned into the childhood area of your brain and made you smile as you played. Over and over again.

So why not try it out, what could possibly go wrong? The rules are simple.

Try and launch Santa over the chasm and get him to land as far as he can on the other side.

Click on the catapult with your mouse and hold down until you get close to the chasm.

Then click and hold down the mouse button again to adjust the power of the launch.

Finally let go of the mouse button to launch Santa. Simple, eh! See you in two hours.

Oh, and if you beat the office score of 350-4 please let us know.
