Good shooter game, i just think the santa claus difficult was kind hard, but good job, keep studing and doing even more games!

I somehow did not expect the boss fight. I was all like "this isn't too hard", and then - bam - santa!

Nice little game. Eventually enemies start spawning too fast, though, and with the rate of fire on the gun, you can't keep up. The art style was...uh...interesting to say the least.

The game is quite simple, but also difficult. You'll often find that you just can't shoot fast enough to be able to kill all the enemies that are coming at you. You really don't have a choice but to take some of the damage. When you get to the boss, you have no way of knowing if you are even damaging him until the game suddenly throws up a pop-up saying you won. There needs to be a boss health bar, or some visual feedback when you damage him, like maybe he'll flash briefly.

Simple but intense game ! It would be even more fun with more content (different weapons, enemy animations), and the sprites would look better if their edge were better cut. The sounds are discreet but effective. Nice work !

Pretty simple, but the harshness of the audio makes it a bit tough to go very far

Nicely done! Two items I noticed; first, by the time you get all four, or even three different enemies coming, your shooting rate is no longer fast enough to shoot all the enemies, so it's just a hope that your life holds out before the boss. Second, there was no feedback on damaging the boss, and since the hit box was large, it actually looked like my shots weren't reaching Santa so I thought I might not be damaging him. Other than that, nice entry.

It was fun to play, bit difficult but I won after a few tries. The player needs to know he
's hit something. I was sitting shooting santa for ages not knowing if I was even doing damage.

Simple and easy enough to keep interest and not being dropped. Not too long and not too short. Cool midget simulator. Positive expirience!

Here's a quick tip which will improve your game:

Change image_xscale of sprites when they move according to their direction, so that you can at least prevent the guy from moving backwards.

I like those wiggly legs aha. I wasn't sure I was ever going to murder father christmas, his bags just kept on dropping on my head! I flipped my lid when that first dragon came through the window. Good luck in the future! Potato Dog

Graphics were quite fun! But it was a little too repetitive. Not sure the theme was done too well here. Anyway, well done for taking part, and at least it had a Christmas theme!

I liked it! the boss was pretty hard.

Dec 14, 2016 @ 12:02am

The boss is probably impossible...
And that walking animation :D

I figured out how to beat santa, just move with the rhythm of christmas so the bag don't hit you. bad santa! This game reminds me a bit of my previous LD entry. Good job overall!

Nice entry! I really enjoyed playing this, it has a very good learning curve and the controls are intuitive. The boss is pretty easy once you figure out the pattern, but thats not meant as a negative thing. Good job!

Good start. Keep going.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:00am

You should try improving the hitboxes on Santa's bag attack. Also, please implement weapon upgrades.

Pretty hard, a bit more work and it will be really good. Background music would be good.

Quite simple, obviously needs a lot of polishing, upgrading mechanics, graphics, audio, but already is playable.
