CNET Editors' review
Unless you buy this program, it serves more to annoy than to amuse. Christmas Breakout Screen Saver depicts Santa running back and forth with a paddle, bouncing a ball to break three rows of candy canes and ornaments. Once you move the mouse, you get to play--for a minute. After approximately 30 seconds, a nag screen pops up, blocking your view of the game. You click to close that screen, but it leaves a gray box that you must play through until the demo quits to the desktop in 10 seconds or so.
Settings let you turn music and sound effects on and off. The difficulty levels actually just control how fast the ball moves. The ZIP file installation adds two extra icons to your desktop, which remain after uninstall. The program's uninstall shortcut leads to a text document that directs you to Windows' Add or Remove Programs Control Panel. Considering the demo limitations, we find it hard to recommend Christmas Breakout Screen Saver.
