Instead of normal bowling pins, you are challenged with knocking down the elves at Santa's workshop.

The graphics aren't the greatest, but the colors are reflective of the holiday season. A long lane has been set up at Santa's factory, and you are in control of the ball. Presents adorn the sides of the lane, and it looks like a large fireplace at the end where the elves stand. When you knock down the elves, you might hear a few choice words and phrases, as the elves aren't happy about being bowled over.

You'll see the ball at the forefront of the screen when you play. There isn't an option to see Santa or your character, so you must manage the ball without someone in front of you to see where the ball is going. You can adjust your horizontal starting position, moving the ball left and right. Your starting position determines the area of the lane where the ball should go once it's rolled. The red ball can have a mind of its own sometimes, seeming to travel across the lane to knock down no elves or as many as possible.

You can also change the speed of how fast you roll the ball. Ball speed can be the most important control to master. If you roll the ball fast and in the center of the lane, then you'll be able to knock down more elves. However, if you only have a few left to knock down, then you want to roll a bit slower so that you can get the precision with the lane. The elves can get a little impatient while they are waiting for you to roll the ball. Sometimes, the controls are a bit too sensitive, which means that your ball ends up going somewhere else in the lane instead of where you intend for it to travel.
