Here's some festive platforming fun to get you all in the spirit. Johnny Platform Saves Christmas is the sequel to Craig Forrester's Johnny Platform's Biscuit Romp and is packed full of retro-style platforming with a Christmasy theme.

On each of the game's 100 levels, your job is to collect the coffee, destroy the robots and get to the exit. Easy to beginning with, it gradually becomes the platformer from your nightmares, in which precision jumps and timing are the difference between saving Christmas and becoming Christmas dinner. Johnny receives an extra life for each 16 cups of coffee he drinks, and a checkpoint is saved every 5 levels.

It's great fun, although a few levels here and there break the barrier between challenging and frustrating (I'm looking at you, level 23!). Well worth investing your hard-earning MS Points on. Grab it from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 240 MS Points ($3).
