I Hate Santa review

I found the game to be different in a good way, yes i know wave shooters take a lot of flak lately […].
The aiming mechanic, looking to aim at targets, I find refreshing, it has been about spot on for aiming. The Dodge feature is a nice touch also.
There seems to have been definate work put into the game, runs well ,looks good, and its stable.
Some days one needs something that isn’t a hyper reallistic shooter, dashing for cover and gunfire all around. Instead, pelt elves, with snowballs.

You can purchase I Hate Santa for only $2.99 from Steam.

Meanwhile, I hate Santa also got an update that makes the game even better and more fun to play. Here’s what’s new:

  • Achievements support
  • The game ending has been polished to make the plot less obscure following players‘ feedback.
  • The jet pack dropper has been improved. If you manage to hit them, you’ll in for a nice surprise. Several attempts may be necessary as this is not an easy task.
  • The visual glitches on game tips  and leader board have been fixed.
