The sequel to the original 2009 festive release, Christmas Island 2 has been a very short time in the making. I've had to rush the release a little in time for Christmas, so I apologise for any scrappiness.

Christmas Island 2 utilises a "grid based" platform engine, inspired by o3's Super Awesome Adventure Extreme, by Nick Kraitch. You control the central protagonist (Santa, of course) on a journey that takes him into some strange places. Christmas Island has evolved, graphically, from the first game.

The game can be quite hard in places. You may not also always know what to do, or where to go next. Sorry about that. At least this is quite a small game (but bigger than the prequel!)

Happy Christmas!

NB: The platform engine is unconventional; you don't get full "free" movement. Left/Right moves Santa around. Tap Shift to perform a small jump. Hold Shift down to do a longer jump.

Wow nice game!

Thanks! Merry Christmas!
D/L now!

I do wish it were more of a traditional platformer though. Why not release a flash version too?

There is a reason why its not in Flash

I got annoyed by the annoying bit. The game
I remember this control method from that Super awesome adventure extreme. (I didn't read your description until just now )
I wonder though, would it be better to have a long jump on one button and a short jump on another button? Having the different jumps on one button makes it harder to do what you want than it needs to be.

Always nice to see stuff from Chris. Now bloody make MSD2!

I didn't see anything in your description that explained why it wasn't flash?

You can convert module music to MP3 and stream it from a CDN if that's your problem. Hosting is cheap with Rack Space.

I don't have the Flash runtime

Is there a special way to get klik games to run in Windows 7? All it does is pop up, play music, show a white or transparent screen and then stop responding.

Do you mean this specific game Brad or klik games in general?

I got up to the "Room of mystery" I think it was called? Then I realised it is midnight and I should sleep if I don't wanna be a zombie at work tomorrow. I like what I played though. My only criticism would be that the jump button is a little too responsive after you land and I sometimes ended up jumping again as soon as I finished a long jump without meaning to. Also (given how much I died) I think the death sequence could have been a little shorter I wanna have another go at it later in the week though, especially since I am quite convinced there is a MSD2 demo concealed within somewhere!

Fair enough criticisms

I probably won't address the jumping issue but I will look into it should there be a Christmas Island. Same for the death sequence (didn't think it was that long though?)


Thanks for the feedback!

Chris, every time I play one of your games I wanna make another platformer!

I like this a lot - particularly the unique jumping mechanism, which sets it apart from the hundreds of more generic platformers out there

My only criticisms would be that the learning curve is a little steep, and it would be nice to have some signs giving hints and gameplay instructions - for example, there's nothing to tell you that you can hold down the jump button when bouncing off a spring, in order to jump further - you just have to figure it out by trial and error. Oh, and I'd like a save/load feature.
