Senile Santa, cute kids & ruthless Rudolph

by Pol - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Stupid senile Santa miscounted the presents, and now there's only one gift left for four kids. Sure enough though, they will figure something fair and lovely out. Kids are wonderful.

Even though it's only good for about 30 seconds of game-play it rates well..

Excellent. Doesn't really feel like much, but when I think about each category, it really maxes them out.

Awesome! I freaked out when I first saw them jump on the poor kid but soon got the hang of it. :)

At first I had no idea what was going on, but it quickly became hilarious. Good job! Once the kids start beating each other up, though, maybe let the player know they can go see Rudolph for help, since he was inactive at the start.

Very short, but awesome! Amazing graphics and animations! And lol, dat boxing Rudolph.

Sometimes, just letting the kids resolve their own problems in the other tab just works out. No need for Rudolph all the time.

Dec 25, 2013 @ 2:55pm

Super funny! Well done.

I love the graphics and the idea is pretty original. I wish there was some more interaction.

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.
