Boxhead – Santa Edition (iPhone/iPod touch) is the holiday version of the bestselling game Boxhead – The Zombie Wars. In this fast paced action-shooter, gamers play as Santa armed with a wide variety of destructive weapons.
At the start of the game, players can select their battlefield as well as the level of difficulty and game mode. There are three difficulty levels: casual, hardcore and nightmare and two modes: survival and last stand. In order to move Santa around, simply use the joystick on the left. The gun is fired by tapping on the button on the right. A green energy bar floats over Santa’s head to let gamers know how much health he has left.
Gamers work hard to survive waves of zombies who are fully dressed in Christmas spirit. Along with zombies, there are also evil elves and dangerous snowmen who are ready to take down Santa. What makes the game so challenging is that the stronger Santa gets, the stronger and more abundant the enemies become.
Players advance and collect weapons and upgrades as they successfully kill enemies. These upgrades can be viewed from the pause menu along with the statistics.
There are an arsenal of weapons to use as well as traps and gauntlets to help set up a defense. Players start off with a pistol and gain new weapons and power-ups by killing enemies. The weapons range from a shotgun to C4 explosive packs. Weapons are displayed at the bottom.
There’s plenty of strategy needed to play Boxhead – Santa Edition. Players must determine whether to play offense, defense or a mixture of the two to create a tactic that works best for them.
Boxhead – Santa Edition is similar in many ways to its predecessor. The controls are hard to get used to at first, but that’s often an issue with most iOS shooters. It seems to play well, but it could use more weapons and levels especially since it was released last year. The game is long overdue for new content.
Overall, if you haven’t checked out Boxhead – Santa Edition, it’s worth adding to the holiday collection. It’s completely free for the holidays and normally costs $1.99. You’ll find yourself going back and playing just one more time to climb the leaderboards, and that in essence is what makes this game so much fun.
