The elf swarm at the beginning caught me by surprise ;)

Pretty cool game, and pretty fun I love the little Santa gif. Did run out of snowballs though, so maybe add a few more snowball pick-ups in but overall really fun.

This game is okay but it could of had more and it could be better.I didn't find it challenging cause i didn't get hurt by the elives snowballs if you were to change that then it would of been alot more fun

Sweet little game you have here. Although its easy to get trapped in a corner by an elf swarm.

This was nice. Simple and well enough executed. There just is no challenge. Set the the elf balls to give some damage to Santa and you have a small, decent and challenging LD game in your hands.

I really liked the zoom effect, the controls are simple but I felt they were really responsive for what I wanted to do.

This does not follow the theme at all.

It was super tense at first, until I realized they couldn't hurt me. Not very challenging but has potential.

Hi there, I'm so sorry you found my game while I was getting the servers online again! I'm gonna play pretty often, so if I'm not on just try and catch me on twitter (@Mach60KAS). Thanks for the patience! :)

Huh. The elfs can't actually hurt you! There's some good ideas here, keep at it.

Those're some mean, vicious elves :P

Was there any sort of conflict or interaction? I picked up all of the items, dispatched all of the elves, and nothing happened. This seems like you ran out of time, there is a lot that just seems to be missing here.

Seems a little unfinished. If you came up with a mechanic that would make use of the zooming effect you could have an interesting game on your hands.

I'm gonna be having nightmares about elves for the next week. I was surprised that the elves couldn't hurt me, is Santa a ghost who has yet to move on? I fear for Christmas.

Anyhow pretty good effort - no crazy bugs though a win condition would have been nice. Keep it up!

Cute game, fun to play, wish it had more depth in gameplay though. also this has nothing to do with the theme, unless you could explain it.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline.

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.
