The North Pole is in trouble and only you can save Christmas in ELFSQUAD7! Go solo or team up with family and friends (two-player local for PC, four-player for Xbox Live Indie Games) in this co-op holiday adventure as you wrap toys, stuff Santa's sack, demolish freakish un-toys, and battle Kevin - the haywire toy-building robot of the North. This is retro gaming at its most festive, so ready the milk and cookies...it's time to save Christmas! (The PC version of ELFSQUAD7 is exclusive to the Indie Royale Xmas Bundle for the 2011 holiday season!)

I really don't understand what you have to do in this game... Can you explain it, please?

It's all about hitting toys with your gun (to wrap them) then collecting the wrapped gifts as they fall. You only have so much time (usually around 40 seconds) to do this, so getting more time (by grabbing Sundials that randomly get placed around the level) is also important.

When you have 4 players going it feels a bit like a holiday version of "Super Smash Brothers", only you're saving Christmas, not beating each other up.

Still lots to do, but this shows off some of the progress that has been made in the last few weeks.

+ Player now gets less time, and has to manage collecting gifts with collecting a Sundial that appears throughout the stage, resulting in a "Racing Game" feel (hitting checkpoints for more time).

+ Breakable Arena: Does the player shoot through those blocks to get a gift or do they keep them intact if they need to grab a future Sundial? Plus it's always fun to smash things. :)

+ New guns: Spread and Bubble gun implemented.
