Ultimate Reindeer Adventure

by NanoidGames - Jam Entry

Christmas is approaching. Nature is covered with snow and you can even feel the pleasant scent of the pine trees. But one of Santa’s reindeers fell into a deep and icy hollow. After a busy workday, give yourself a moment and get in the mood for Christmas. Help the desperate animal to find its way back to its master. Use Santa’s presents but beware of the naughty goblin’s bombs.

Watch our how to play video:

What a cool idea. It's like the whole donkey-in-a-well story where they keep pouring in dirt to bury him but he keeps shaking it off and climbing. The main downside I see is that the wall is very high for a first challenge. Players need to be rewarded earlier than the end of the game to be motivated to rise up to that challenge. I think if it was a series of progressively higher walls leading up to this one I would have climbed to the top. As it is I only made it almost 3/4 of the way there. Still a really neat game though.

Good looking game. I like the mix of 3d and 2d. The UI was a little weird, the controls were slightly offscreen :/ But it played well and has a nice christmas feel :)

Cool artwork, makes me feel more beeing in xmas time. Some little problems with the gameplay, but this is well done for a 72h prototype. Merry christmas man!

Good graphics, fitting sound and nice game play. That you also put a "How-to-play"-video on youtube is great.

Very well done and happy x-mas!

It's a cool game. Lovely animation and music. Lucky the goblin don't throw so many bombs.
The game play has problem with behave of the gifts boxes.
You can't exactly control the placing.

Well made!

Cute with a nice Xmas atmosphere. Block handling felt somewhat uneasy.

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.
