Crack the nuts, Nutcracker! Strategically crack nuts in order to reach 10,000 points before the time runs out! Stack combos (crack the same type of nuts consecutively) to win!

Featuring a live performance by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Not KNP, but I just had to make a holiday game for the Kart!

Features an interesting

I found myself cracking the

I found myself cracking the bombs on purpose because even though it put my score in the negatives, I enjoyed watching that number get bigger. I like how the disincentives were so extreme that after one mistake (or experimentation) I had to decide "Am I going to spend the entire game working to get back to my starting score? Or am I going to see how deep this hole can go?"

On a particularly slow day

On a particularly slow day at work, I worked up to 10,000 points and won, then cracked bombs until I was at -10,000, then worked back up to 10,000 again using macadamia combos.
