Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Evil Santa

by popica23 - Jam Entry

I made this game using Game Maker.

The idea of the game is that you have to collect all the apples to be able to defeat the fake evil Santa and save Mrs Claus, so both of you can go to save the real Santa.

The music and most of the graphics I took from the internet.

Controls are:
arrows - movement
space - jump

Jumping repeatedly while holding the button is a bit of a faux pas, but I like the jump handling and the control response is nice and tight. Interesting concept. Santa is terrifying. XD

OK, I REALLY SUCK AT PLATEFORMER GAME. Nonetheless, the game's a fair challenge given its capacity. The level design seems thought to FUCK WITH YOUR PERCEPTION (I'm really bad at plateformer T_T).

Thank you all @MrJoshuaMcLean first I made that if you hold space it would jump once and after that stop until you release and press again, but it bugged at some point and didn't have time to repair it, because of work :( @OuichesDoctor to be honest, I was scared that maybe I made the game too easy, and thanks about telling me about the level design, next time I shall try to make it better :D @Sujisan thank you, simple and hard is what I aimed for this game

This isn't really difficult. I finished it in the 2nd run.

Lacks content and replayability. I'd expect more from a Jam entry.

Simple little game in time for the season.
The lack of WASD movement had me confused a moment, but arrow keys work just as well.
It's pretty basic in pretty much everything which is alright depending on how it is executed.
I did play and I did enjoy it for the most part and that's all that matters!

I might say u tried. And I honestly dont know what to say next. There is so much things that are missing. U might try to do level generating, randomize "mob" spawning, add timer so players could challegne themselves by beating own time and so on.

This games fulfill it's simple objective very well, and I enjoyed for that. Well done and keep making games!

Hey, I liked the game.
It has a really minimalistic art style and at the beginning it's hard to get into the game. But overall not bad!
And please go and try out my game!
