A Christmas-themed horizontally scrolling shoot-'em-up. Santa is attempting to make his annual gift-delivering journey while battling renegade pixies. As Santa and Rudolph journey over seasonal landscapes, the pixies attack with presents and bombs. Santa can retaliate by throwing his own presents at them. The game is divided into three main sections: Lapland, the Atlantic Ocean, and present delivering.

Another game, also named Santa's Xmas Caper and with a title screen identical to the Commodore 64 version, was released by the same company for DOS and Amiga some time later. However, that game is different; it is a side-scrolling platform game.
