Let’s Play! The Official Father Christmas Game (Again)

Ho ho HOHGODNO

In a way, this is cheating because I’ve used this game for a Friday Let’s Play once before. However, that was six years ago and in that time Java has become a naughty word, the world has moved on, and the embedded emulator to actually play it has long since become unusable.

The game is still terrible. Just look at the inlay!

“Save the Children”? Presumably from “Santa” there.

Anyway. To “win” you have to rebuild The Official Father Christmas Sleigh, and find all The Official Father Christmas Presents. Presumably you then have to avoid getting drunk on sherry and diabetes from two billion mince pies.

Imagine you got this for Christmas one year. Urgh.

Controls: QAOP and Space. Or you could close this page and do something else?

The emulator used is Qaop/JS – a rather spiffy HTML5 Spectrum emulator.
