Cool game but it is too hard from the beginning. Nice concept overall

Fun game, I liked the quirky art and animation. It's pretty challenging but still enjoyable. Nice work!

I'm not sure that the game fits to the "One room" theme of this jam. But overall it's quite good submission with very energetic music and cool art styles.
Good job!

Good setup for the humor, but it needed more Santaur in the actual game.

Haha, really funny game with really fun and well done graphics. I especially like the snowman and the polar bear (reminds me of Brian from Family Guy for some reason).

It takes a few goes until you get the hang of how the game works. But once you do, all five levels are super easy, you just build three rows of sniper elves and nothing can touch you.

I found it frustrating that when I was in building mode and I clicked a floating star it would build what I was building under the star.

Overall great job on humor and audio ("There is no time like Christmas time" ...I had to laugh :P)

Ok, I finally beat it!!
And omg, where did you get all the Santaur jokes? I recognize some as Chuck Norris ones :)

This game is hilarious. Loved the graphics and audio. Sometimes clicking the stars will put down defences where I wouldn't want them. Also I had no idea how much anything cost, so it was kind of hard to manage my resources.

Yeah, pretty hard.
But you get an extra point for knowing Chuck Norris Jokes ;)

Well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
