The game closely follows the same plot as the film. One major difference is that the Ebeneezer Scrooge puppet plays a much bigger role. He is the game's main villain whose main goal is to keep the children from believing in Santa Claus by stealing their tickets and throwing them off the train.
The game is broken down into six chapters, which gives the player the opportunity to explore areas like the train and the North Pole. The player controls Hero Boy in every chapter.
The game was first announced by THQ at the E3 convention in 2004. The PlayStation 2 version has EyeToy support. A Game Boy Advance version of the game, developed by Tantalus, was also in development.
Most versions of the game received negative reviews except for the PC version, which received mixed reviews.
