Hohoho, it's time for a new/old bontegame! I didn't get to make a Christmas themed game this year, but I dusted off this one from some years ago that I had to release in a rush at the time.

I optimized it and also updated it to support any mobile browser too, so you can also play it on your phone or tablet.
Enjoy Pixels for Christmas: It's almost Christmas, so get all the golden pixels to get a nice surprise! And no there is no map, it would spoil the ending ;) Merry platforming!
