Works fine on IE11. That was fun, timing is everything when it comes to swinging at the reindeer.

Graphics are quite nice and the reasoning for why he's killing the deer's is funny! easy controls and runs smoothly. Great job!

So much cuteness!!

Dec 10, 2014 @ 4:28pm

Really nice, I think the controls are solid, the difficulty levels up a great pace which makes it very replayable, the parallax effect with the score and text in the background is amazing. Great touch that you can only axe things when the axe is actually swinging in front of you, so that also needs a sense of timing. Very well done, it all keeps an even level!

Confirm doesn't work with Chrome/W8.1 combo.

With W8.1 It works on IE11, lol. As they said in their ad -
IE Sucks... less.

Wow, the game starts moving really quick really fast! That's not a bad thing, though, the sense of movement feels great! It took me a bit to realize that the axe animation had just to be playing to deal damage, I thought at first that the axe itself should hit the reindeer.

Nice graphics.

You must really hate reindeers.
My sore is 140.
Works well in IE11.
Oh and I really enjoyed it :)

Haha you get easy stars with that introduction :D The game is a bit too simplist sadly, I want more way to slaughter these $*#@% deers ^^

I will make special version version for you, my friend.

Nice graphics and animation.

Dec 20, 2014 @ 8:57pm

My only problem is that the axe attack is a little non-transparent. To explain: take Robot Unicorn Attack as an example: when you do your dash attack the attack starts immediately and it's clear exactly how long the invulnerability lasts for. With this it seems like I have to predict when the axe will reach it's peak swing. I'm not sure if that's the case, but that's what the animation makes me believe. Other than that, the game's terrific.

Lol. Mega-addictive game. With some issues and bugs, yes, but is nothing compared with the fun I had playing this. Absolutelly stunning!! Really, awesome. Congratulations. Something so simple but so addictive... :D

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
