"Award-winning learning provider, Sponge UK is using its expertise in multi-device elearning games to create a fun festive challenge. The Plymouth-based company has launched a new Christmas game, Save Santa!

Players take on the role of an elf who must find a way through a frozen underground world, collecting presents, dodging yetis and defeating rocket-powered penguins, before locating Santa and freeing him from the clutches of an evil Jack Frost.

It’s the eighth year Sponge UK has released a complimentary Christmas game instead of sending Christmas cards.

Louise Pasterfield, Sponge’s Managing Director, said: “It’s become a bit of a festive tradition and Save Santa! is our best ever Christmas game.

“There are six levels to conquer, spike traps to avoid and baddies to defeat. It also has an interactive leaderboard displaying the top ten high-scoring players, and you can also tweet your score from the game.

“It’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our clients and everyone who has supported Sponge in the past year. But as you would expect it’s also a learning opportunity.

“Creating the game allows our team to try out new ideas and further hone their skills in game design and development.

“As games become more important within workplace learning, I believe it’s good for people who don’t normally play them to expand their knowledge.

“So whether you’re an instructional designer, learning consultant or L&D manager have a go and see if you can save Santa!”"
