This game isn't bad, but it's lacking some polish. It is super easy to get stuck especially because you can only jump one block high. the dropper are is also far to fast to allow you and time to strategically move boxes meaning that the entire game is just not dying.

Like the presents and character. :) Game could be a bit more responsive though. Feels like you're already dead when you see a package falling on your location. File size is a bit weird how it's so huge.

The idea is great, but it is a bit hard to play. I would have like a possibility to lift and move the presents. But the christmas atmosphere in the is super great. So overall well done.

This is an okay game, I like the concept behind it. If you put a little more time into it I'm sure it'd be great.

It's a good idea, maybe the gameplay needs more mechanics to works fine.

It's a very good concept. Now the gifts falls way too quikly since it aims to have a puzzle aspect. Just trying to go to a gift you want to move and already there's two more gifts that changes your plans. Just adjusting this little parameter will make this game almost perfect.

I got stuck way to often, but other than that I think this is a clever concept and festive too!

Great Art, gameplay could use some work.

This was quite a fun game concept but I do think that it is probably too fast to play strategically and instead you can only try and prevent blocks from getting trapped. It would be a lot of fun if the elf could carry gifts and move blocks that were under other presents :)

This remembered me a game I played when I was a child. It's a quite fast and sometimes it's very dificult to avoid those falling christmas presents. But I liked it!

The classic gameplay works well, but maybe some extra twists like immovable presents (like you said in the to-do list) will make the game more appealing to play.

Nice concept but gameplay needs some polish. Presents fall too fast and you can get stuck easily.

After an incredibly long download, I extracted and played this. I must say that I did enjoy it... audio and graphics were great. With a little work, I think it can be improved to allow you to move some of the presents to better positions... sometimes they drop and cannot be moved.

Nice concept and really funny little game. The music change was unexpected, I loved it !!! Graphics are also really good ! Great job !

My high score is something like 526.

Dec 22, 2016 @ 4:41am

Nice little game. Game gets a little difficult because you have to rely so heavily on random chance. I think it would be really cool if you added a Super Mario Bros 2 style lifting and carrying mechanic for the presents.

The game is quite hard but really funny. I like when the heavy music start to play, it makes me laugh. Maybe, the present should take more time to drop.

Nice tetris clone, but is hard to control the moving of the cubes. But for a jam entry, is very very nice, congrats! :)
