Santa doesn’t just magically make presents appear in your rooms or under the Christmas tree on Christmas day – he’s out there all the night before, rushing around on his sleigh and getting into scrapes with local air traffic control operators.

Santa Dash from inLogic attempts to capture a little of that manic rush on Christmas Eve, with the player taking control of Santa as he desperately dives over chimneys and rooftops in a bid to get all the presents to the children who deserve them.

It looks like a festive version of the iOS and Flash classic Canabalt, only with fewer city-destroyed alien invaders and more good-cheer.

Santa Dash should be flying onto the well-behaved Java gaming portals later this week.
