Another Year, Another Video Game Made With Christmas Lights

Out to prove that last year's Guitar Hero-style game made from Christmas lights was no fluke, Ric Turner is back again with Snowball Blaster, an arcade style game where you're tasked with helping Santa Claus avoid getting hit.

26,000 lights spread across 128 channels are controlled by a PC and the basic objective of the game is to dodge incoming snowballs, which land in one of three possible spots. Each game adds another 1/2 cent to Turner's power bill, and he says that there's a huge light show if you manage to defeat the game (so far, no one has) And, as in previous years, you can turn into a specific FM station to hear sound effects, and a quick tutorial on how to play the game.
