Sneaky Santa

by sikosis - Jam Entry

You are Santa. Get the presents, deliver them to the tree and get out through the door without being seen or heard (bumping into furniture).

If a parent gets you, you lose a gingerbread man. It's Game Over when you lose all three gingerbread men.


Sneaky Santa requires a Mouse to play. You control Santa by Left clicking the desired location. You can hold the left mouse button down for an "arcade-like" action.

Some of the totally bonkers things going on in this game are actually quite hilarious! p:

The glitchy effects mostly add to the humour, but there is once place where it gets in the way of the game, and that's when holding the mouse button down and the character is at the center of the pointer, and starts glitching around. Should've had a tolerance value there. Ended up with me either having to be on the move constantly or just not using the hold feature, which was a bit sad since I preferred it.

Audio is fun too, and the music is nice. The graphics fit nicely with the weirdness. Might have not worked out as well with a different style. Simple, but no problem seeing what anything is, except perhaps for one thing—I wasn't sure whether the pillow on the armchair was a present that I was supposed to pick up, which got a bit scary since it was on a piece of furniture!

Good ramping up of difficulty tho eventually I got stuck and just couldn't clear the "prayer" level even after several replays. Sorry to disappoint you in case there's some fancy ending I'm missing. p: I hope I'm still eligible to rate and comment!

Funny entry. c:

very good game, best one I played so far! I really like the Santa model and that they beat Santa up when found out. Best thing about the game off course is the "merry christmas" sound when you deck the tree. keep up the good work.

Controls are lacking a little tightness, but overall, cool game!

That was entertaining and very fun to play. The additive room was good, mechanics were good. Game was intuitive to play and difficulty had a nice increment. I hope you continue development.
