Whoo hoo. My first game of 2004 since Mr Stumps Dentures - released in February. That's a long time if I do say so myself. Anyway.

To get into the spirit of Christmas, I spent a few hours today (24/12/04) working on this little game. It's a Zone Runner-esque platformer, in which you control Santa as he has to avoid everything and collect the presents. There are ten levels full of challenges.

You start off with three lives. But, however, unlike my Zone Runner games, there's a timer ticking in the form of a bomb. If it reaches zero, you lose a life. Once you figure out the level designs you'll probably have no trouble in beating it, and you most likely won't come back to the game again - but I thought I should make a little something for the Christmas period and I hope you enjoy it. If you don't enjoy it - tough!

ok chap,like the simple graphics, the jumping makes it so much harder,and the music change and the 2 second pause :| but it alright,as far as i got it looked like the levels were getting rather tricky

difficult yet addicting
Posted by The Chris Street 24th December, 2004

The engine is based on a basic platform engine tutorial I submitted at the Clickteam forums.

That jumping is wierd....
Posted by Joshua M. 24th December, 2004

Hmm, the jumping is weird, not natural. But then again, it does make the game interesting and hard, you'll need timing with these jumps! Great game. Circy are you addicted to thick line graphics? XD

wow this feels kinda like another game I played one time

The jumping sort of lags, and you cant jump on those elf dudes but i gave it a thumbs up :-).

Nice work, but the resolution change kind of messes up on my computer :\

it's an annoying game.
Posted by AndyUK 27th December, 2004

just like zone runner 1 and 2 In almost everyway, The only differences i can see are the gradual jump and the main character is about 100 times larger than Circys average character size. nice.

Dammit, ur game messed up my puter and i had to force restart it because i couldnt reach any restart buttons.
Posted by Teapot 29th December, 2004

Nice, but that jumping is plain stupid.

Circy's really showing some range here with this game, folks

And you're STILL on the ban list, Dustin.

I tried to get it running, but it locked up when it went to fullscreen. I had to shut it down manually from the task manager. Sad too... it looks really good. :-(

if it locks up, then it might be an audio problem. Ive had problems with my games in the past. Press CTRL and M to disable the music.
