Santa "Dr. Jones" Claus in: Christmas Shaft
Created for the DC Xmas compo, this is one of the best games I've ever made. It doesn't look like much, but it will have you playing for hours trying to beat your highscore.

You play the part of Santa who is stuck in a mine shaft with the spiked cieling collapsing on you. Try and stay alive for as long as you can by jumping on the platforms and not falling off the bottom of the screen. The red platforms will drop your health by three, and the blue will restore your health by one.

The game is all about addictiveness. Once you pop, you can't stop. This will be the highlight of your coffee break for months.

* Great gameplay
* Annoying christmas music
* Weird sound effects
* Difficulty levels
* Easy to learn
* Impossible to master
* All original graphics
* And so much more..

Take a look at the screenshot below, then download. Heck, why look at the screenshot when one can download right away?

Be sure to throw an eye at the extensive readme for more info. Bye for now!

PS It placed third in the compo... (And now the download is fixed)

Good game, I agree Jason, it should have won the competition.

I agree. I love it.

Now, since this will get dates very soon, you should make another version with another character, with it going sideways instead
Posted by Nioreh 5th January, 2003

Hmm, sideways. Naaa, dunno. Maybe I'll do a non-christmas version though.

I Agree with you all, it's a great game. Very addictive. Is there an online highscore? If not, what are everyones highest scores?

It's a fun game but it's pretty hard. That Santa Claus sprite is hilarious!

Yup, as soon as I saw todays "reviews column" I immediately thought "Wong Chung Bang" Its a good game, my highest score so far is 548

At last. Thanx wong. Now your'e my first choise for a new admin. Hehe btw, the "bug" that you can guide santa off the screen is left in the game because I thought it was cool. The cool thing is that it really doesn't matter. I got an e-mail a couple of days back from a guy who got 1800 feet. He played in "Normal" though. Normal is for children, and men who just got their ears ripped off...

I got 1,738 feet on Hard <-)
Posted by Nioreh 27th January, 2003

Hehe, then you must have noticed that I quit writing messages at 1600 :P
