Santa Sling

How can Santa Claus deliver presents so fast?! It’s a highly discussed dilemma but one way is by using a big, magical sling and he’s aming for the chimneys.

In the Santa Sling VR game, you will be the great slinger of Santa and you will do the job of delivering presents right from Santa’s sleigh during its flight over a Christmas-themed town.

Unfortunately, this game is only for those who own a pretty powerful computer, and the HTCVive Headset and Controllers.

The computer requirements start from a configuration with an Intel i5-4590 equivalent or better CPU, 8 GB of memory, Windows 7 SP1 or later OS, Nvidia GeForce GTX 970, AMD Radeon R9 290 or equivalent graphics cards and 1 GB of free space.

We know you’re the best snowball fighter so you will definitely finish the game and then…you will finally discover Santa’s darkest secret.

The game also has a PVP mode so you can also compete with your friends. Let’s see who is going to own the leader board!

Santa’s Special Delivery

In this title, you’ll track those who have been naughty or nice. As expected, good boys and girls get gifts but bad boys and girls get poop from Santa. Yes, this game may not be appropriate for all ages, but it’s quite fun to play.

The gameplay is quite simple: You can take control of Santa’s sleigh and steer the twelve exploding reindeer to deliver Christmas presents. In each city, there’s someone who has been so naughty that the only gift they deserve is a load of poop down their chimney.
