Discount Santa Saves Christamas

by tinykidtoo - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The game has three levels and is mostly working, it is a platformer with a twisted christmas styling. The web client seems to be broken and I am working on a fix. But this might not come that soon as it is the holidays. Hope you enjoy playing.

I like the idea of santa having to navigate a deadly obstacle course. The game gets real hard at some place and sometimes you have to guess about where you are supposed to jump to which can be frustrating,

Fiendishly difficult but worth persevering with! Some of most fun I've had out of all the games I've seen. A very well balanced platformer, my favourite kind :) I loved Santa's face when jumping.

Yeah! I won! :D
I enjoyed it a lot! Nice mechanics, very smooth. Also great job with level design, it is very hard to beat. Good job!

One friendly advice: you should make the game more accessible to the people; since it was made in unity you could post a web version or at least seperate downloadable version to reduce download size. It is a good game, it would be nice if more people checked it out.

I'm not a huge fan of dark takes on holiday themes, but none the less its a pretty solid game.

The perfect collisions are kind of tedious but it's a hilarious game, I like the idea of subjecting santa claus to mayhem. Could really use a few more different kinds of obstacles.

Don't really see the theme connection and the physics were a bit floaty, but otherwise a solid platformer with above average level design.

Quite hard--the jumping is super floaty. One small thing you could do to give some more polish is to change Santa's scaleX (-1 or 1) based on the direction you're moving so it feels like you're changing direction.

The face is hilarious -- need a "HO HO HO" sound effect to go with it.

Well, it's a nice platformer, though the gravity feels a bit weird. A bit low on different amounts of obstacles but that's fine since it's just 48 hours after all.

Nice platformer, the controls are bit floaty but feel better then other submissions I've played.

As other reviewers have said, the gravity was slightly too low. I liked the part where Santa threw up blood.

Way too hard for me, but I liked Santa's appearance, especially how he seemed surprised every time I jumped.

The jumping needed a bit of practice, but thats ok.
Nice work :)

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.
