Gift Hunter is a free Windows 8 Christmas Game app. In this game, you have to collect more gifts by hitting the bubbles that contain gifts. Also, Santa himself will appear in the game sometimes. If you are able to click on Santa, you would be able to save the 5 lives that you are given in the game. But, if you are not able to click on Santa, then one life is taken away. If that happens 5 times then your game is over as all your lives depend on you clicking Santa when he pops up.
Seems easy enough!!!!!!! Well here comes the interesting part, apart from the gifts, the bubbles may sometime contain skulls. If you hit the skull by chance, your game would be over.
The game also gives the option to share the score you have made, using the option that appears after the game is over .
The game can be played with 7 different themes. The game uses good quality graphics and background sounds. Gift Hunter is freely available in the Games category of the Windows 8 store.
