App-vent Calendar - day 11: Nightmare Before Christmas (Symbian)

There are ludicrous amounts of Christmas-themed apps coming our way this festive season ranging from Chrimbo countdowns to elf-themed video greetings and yuletide fireplace simulators. However, here at Pocket-lint, many of our fave apps are games (step forward, Angry Birds Seasons) and the surprise behind today's door is a fine choice for all the Nokia owners out there.

This neat little game is based on Tim Burton's classic Halloween/Christmas stop-motion animation mash-up. Christmas is in jeopardy as Santa's presents have all been stolen and it's down to Halloweentown's popular Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, to get them all back.

The game offers a whopping 100 levels of puzzles for you to grapple with as you battle against witches and skeletons to find the stolen presents. Along with the Jack, you'll also come face to face with plenty of other Halloweentown characters too. This is one of those apps that is going to become very addictive, very quickly.
