Help Santa to create a path to walk through the maze and find a key that opens the exit.

Blocks can only be pushed if there is a block's worth of space behind them and nothing immediately ahead of them.

If you push a block over the ice, the block will sink and leave open water on the level, where Santa can sink if you are not careful.

Other hazards include ice which prevents Santa from stopping until he goes past it. Falling through holes loses one of your 3 lives, so think carefully about your steps.

On your way, you can collect stars, Christmas ornaments, and gifts for extra points.

The game has a password system to load already-played levels.

The game is tested on real hardware, TheC64, and VICE emulator. The game will run in PAL and NTSC modes, but it's not optimized for NTSC.

I very much like it.

Ideally there would be more levels with a nice puzzle design (clever and sloppy ones) and some music (not too distracting).

One of the few games I played through multiple times.

Hey Jani, thank you for your awesome games! 
I love this puzzle games a lot and like the level codes. Please go on coding games for my beloved Commodore 64. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Fun little puzzle game, recommended! Took me one afternoon to play through it, which was quite a suitable amount of puzzling; it still tasted good at the end. :-) Clever level design, flawless implementation.

Thanks, glad that you enjoyed this game.
