    On the cover it reads "The Original Christmas Classic". So my best bet is this DS title does nothing other than playing the tune "Santa Claus is comin' to town".

    This is based on the "TV" christmas classic of the same name, which was a stop-motion animation first aired in 1970. The DS game "Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer", released last year, was also based on a TV show from 1964. You have to be of a certain age to appreciate the classics. :P They're still aired around christmas time every year on TV, if you look around.

    Nevertheless, the Rudolph game was crap, and I guess this one is, too.

    What? :blink: I'm sure you meant shovelware. Vaporware doesn't exist. You can download or buy this game, so it's real.

    Quote from wikipedia: "Vaporware is a term in the computer industry that describes a product, typically computer hardware or software, that is announced to the general public but is never actually released nor officially canceled."
