New Game: Christmas Time Heroes
News posted 25th December, 2010 by Jon Lambert  
It's Christmas time everyone! And not just Christian Christmas, but SECULAR CHRISTMAS! That means Santa, cookies, and presents, and boy does Strife have a present for you. It's his entry into the TDC Christmas Competition, called Christmas Time Heroes! 'Tis a game of nice style and gameplay, with enough variety and pleasant music and graphics to interest me enough to make a news post. And you all know that doesn't happen a lot. ;)

Comments from Strife: The date is December 24th. A group of explorers and peacekeepers known as the Spectrum Force have stumbled upon a mysterious blue moon, and it appears to have ties with the Christmas holiday. Upon reaching the surface, they learn that a civil war is about to begin between the spirited Fawnful and the jealous, militaristic Rednoses, who are being led by a man known as Lord Sled. The Fawnful are on the losing side, and it's up to the skills of Indigo Sun and Violet Star to balance the scales and figure out what's going on. Can they stop the fighting in time for Christmas?

Sheesh, I sure hope the judges don't judge the competition without looking at the other entries, too.
Posted by Strife 25th December, 2010

I was actually expecting a news post that lists all of the games submitted to the Downloads section so far. Granted, less than half of the entries have been uploaded to the site, but still, no love for the rest?

In any case, glad you like it, Jon. And thank you, Ark.

I'm still waiting to try some of the other games, there were a few that looked interesting, but that might just be an issue with some of the contestants (maybe they think the judges are submitting them?).

Take it easy, Dogzer. ^^"

Completely unnecessary. Next time is a warning.

Hmm... good pixel art, but the shading seems sorta random, like you just randomly placed the pixel. I don't see a reason for most of the pixels to be the colours they are (darker pixels where there wouldn't be shading, for instance). Gameplay seems solid, though!

I love it. Although I must be retarded I cannot pass Mission 2 =(

Jacob - Yeah, my shading can be a little weird in spots, especially without time to refine it. Thanks for the thumbs-up on the gameplay though. ^^

Renato - You can only destroy the key capsules with your Down + Jump move as either character. The first capsule is in the bottom-right corner of the stage. To reach the second one, go up from where the first one was and use the mushroom springs, then head left into a pit below a sliding platform.

Oh I always do, but then I die after I go up the yellow platforms the enemies respawn when I am waiting on my yellow gauge to go up to heal =(
