Pinch Ol' Santa 2 is a good example of an easy Christmas-themed time waster, perfect for a short break during work.
You look through your window, out of your room at the roofs of a town somewhere in Switzerland. As you admire the lamps and the scenery in general, you see Santa. And there he is, running across that roof on the left of your window.
Looking at Santa you get an idea: Maybe if you pinch him now, he will lose a parcel or two which you then can take for yourself. You open the window and start to Pinch ol' Santa.
Pinch ol' Santa 2 is released as PinchWare. See the ReadMe for further details.
Pinch ol' Santa 2 runs on OS X 10.1 or later. It runs fine on a G4 processors or a Pentium running at at least 1 GHz (and subsequent hardware). If you happen to have a G3 or a slower Pentium, Pinch ol' Santa 2 will behave a bit hesitant but runs nevertheless.
Good sound system is optional but definitely worth it.
