I meant to mention it earlier this month, but now probably the best time to post it anyway since we'll be slowing down our updates for the holidays: Pixeljam has released a Christmas-themed follow-up to its super addictive Flash game Mountain Maniac.

In Mountain Maniac Xmas, the same crazy, hammer-wielding guy is terrorizing towns by slamming huge boulders down a mountain pachinko-style, except now he's rampaging against Santa Claus and his minions.

In between stages and Abominable Snowman battles, you'll fight gingerbread mean, Santa's elves, reindeer, and more, all with chiptune arrangements of holiday songs playing in the background.
