SantaRacer updated, snow in the forecast

SantaRacer

If you're looking for a simple, fun Windows Phone game, take a look at SantaRacer. The game was recently updated to version 2.0 with a new game engine under the hood and improved graphics that include snow fall.

SantaRacer has you guiding Santa and his sleight up a hill collecting presents and avoiding flying rocks along the way. If you hit a rock, you lose a reindeer. Run out of time or reindeers and the game's over.  SantaRacer is a fun game to pass the time with and has a bit of challenge.

SantaRacer

You control the sleigh by tilting your Windows Phone up or down. Tilting up sends Santa towards the top of the screen, tilting down sends him closer to the ground.

You have one minute to see how many presents you can collect and start the sleigh ride with three reindeers. As you collect presents, you earn points and bonus time. If a flying rock hits your sleigh, you lose a reindeer. The game ends when the timer runs out or you lose all your reindeers. Your scores can be shared socially or submitted to the online leaderboard.

As flying rocks enter the screen a warning sign will appear to give you an idea where the rock will enter the screen. The further you survive, the faster the pace becomes. There are also bonus presents that will make you invincible to let you run through the rocks without getting a scratch. If you lose a reindeer, every so often you can catch one running up the hill to recruit. This can be a little challenge as the game speed increases.

SantaRacer is a fun game for short bits of time and does have an addictive quality to it to keep you coming back. Animations and graphics are nice and the game is challenging enough to keep things interesting. If you're looking for a fun game to play while on the way to Grandma's house this weekend, take a look at SantaRacer.

There is an unlimited free trial available for SantaRacer with the paid version running only $.99. You can find it all here at the Windows Phone Store.
