Santasm 2 is a decent platformer by Radix featuring character customization, that is if you manage to collect enough coins to purchase the required parts. Elves are preparing to take over the world, and there's nothing that Santa can do about it as he is turned into a toy right before strangling Phil the mastermind.

With a bit of resolve, you set out to upgrade your parts and storm Castle Claus in an attempt to end his evil plan once and for all.

There's not a lot of levels and they're pretty short, but you do get to choose three of the five available stages to play in any order. Press the control key to shoot, and tap the shift key to jump.

The objective is to reach the pole at the end of each stage. If you happen to lose all your hearts, there's a chance that you could continue so long as you have in your possession enough coins to build a new toy.

Some parts bestow new skills, such as the ability to fly or hover. These attributes are indicated by the boxes below the toy parts, displayed in the customization menu.
