[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Hero Bears: Christmas Capers (the game is called Help for Heroes: Christmas Bears in the UK) is a new snowball, Santa and snowman-themed game in the Hero Bears series.

“After the games playing public showed their incredible support of Hero Bears, we thought the best way to say thank you would be to release a new version for Christmas. It’s free, it’s just as fun, and it’s the most Christmas-y game this side of Christmas NiGHTS on the Sega Saturn.” said Pete Williamson, co-director of the game’s developer Supersonic Software.

Hero Bears: Christmas Capers lets you help out real Heroes and have snowballs of fun at the same time! Run as far as you can, tapping and swiping to avoid festive failure, and help the Hero Bears run their frozen little paws off!

Jump over doves, slide under fences, leap over giant snowballs and dodge Christmas-y catastrophe in the greatest obstacle course you’ll ever run! Can you guide the Hero Bears through acres of traps, complete the challenging missions and score sackfuls of points?

• Endless Christmas fun!

• Cold blue skies, snowy ground and Christmas decorations add to the challenge

• Swinging bears, flying birds, giant snowballs all get in your way!

• Complete all 90 missions!

• Unlock all 18 achievements!

Hero Bears: Christmas Capers was created by the amazing folks at Supersonic Software and brought to you by AppyNation in support of Help for Heroes.
