The game features 4 lengthy levels with a boss fight at the end of each one. You must hire and customise up to 9 reindeer to carry Santa to victory.
Each reindeer can be equipped with 1 weapon and 2 passive upgrades ranging from increased rate of fire to shield piercing shots and beyond.
The reindeer gain stat increases with every level they clear, these bonuses are wiped out if they ever fall during a flight.
The player can unlock weapons/perks from each level by completing 4 goals, these items are necessary in defeating the increasingly difficult enemies ahead.
