Santa's Reckoning

by firebelly - Jam Entry

Santa has made a new decree. There can be only one good person left on Earth. And that person is SANTA. Use your epic Santa Power of Gifting to obliterate all life on Earth. Collect cookies, milk and avoid all life. Also there are robot Santa that shoot coal and candy canes for some reason. Tis the season. TO KILL.

That's the Christmas spirit! :D
Fun times, it's only a little bit too easy to stack everyone at one place, but it's still fun.

@JakubKoziol I hope to spend some more time this weekend and keep it interesting. I need to add some bosses and more interesting level progression.

@psychomonster If you look closely, they expand with every present until they explode. And leave behind cookies and milk!

To kill people with gifts was a cool idea, I like it. The game is funny ! :)

Jan 6, 2014 @ 11:12pm first I had to figure out what I really had to do even though there were instructions before the game started. Kids were coming from EVERYWHERE...had to stay on my toes. Overall, I think that I would play it again.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
