Don't touch my gifts!

by nov1kk - Jam Entry

This game is a platformer shooter, with different kind of weapons and monsters. But there's one thing that most games don't have, a hook!
You have to defend the Christmas' gifts from evil monster that try to steal them.
There are infinite waves to be played!

Remember to use 'B' to open the store and buy more powerful weapons!

Well, I managed to get to wave 12, it can get really difficult over time. I think the enemies and weapons are well thought out.
The only gripes I had: I always tried to jump with W instead of Spacebar, and the shop doesn't pause the game between waves, that's why I got overrun by enemies once while shopping.

Nice game, the hook mechanic really adds to the game
wish i could shot in any direction

Got to wave 11 before dying. Fun stuff, but using the grapple to reach the top felt a little stiff on the controls. Great job!

Game was pretty fun. I really liked the hook and the shop. Adding music would have made the game much better but nontheless, it's great!

haha pretty good, got to lvl 15 then i died because i was to long in shop

ps.: little cheat, hook the top platform so that your weapon is a bit above the middle platform, then shoot with the bazooka, you will hit lvl 12 with ease :D

Fun game! Good item and monster variety! The hook was cool but not all that useful.. A higher jump would have worked the same. But still, It was working pretty good.
Good job!

Good game play i like. For people who have not qwerty, (azerty or bépo) using arrow would be a great improvment :)

Fun start - aim doesn't seem to work for gun

@billrizer: you don't aim with weapons, just shoot left or right, that adds some difficulty :D

@friken you can use the hook (right click) or use the recoil of some weapons

Interesting but sometimes the enemies don't take damage!

@paperweight probably you're shooting at the yellow ones, the tanks! You have to shoot them to their face, if you shoot their back it won't damage them

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.
