The game looks really good! The art is clean, it's pleasing to the eye and everything goes together :)
The button to validate the "Settings" looks like a "reset" button. Not really intuitive :(
The BGM is great, but I feel like the SFX is not completely related to the game. It would have been nice to have different SFX for each weapon, and an SFX for the hurt/die moments.
Short, in game, with visuals. That's a proper tutorial for me :)
The game has great potential, but I found it a bit too frustrating. Maybe because I'm really bad at aiming.
I don't know if it's linked, but the game crashed when I (possibly) died.
You can click the "quit game" button while in the settings menu.
No problem on that point, that's completely in theme :)
Hey, thanks for the constructive feedback, appreciate it a lot! The 1.0 version has some game breaking bugs that mess with the feel and also some stuff that should've been polished more. We just released a 1.1 version that was updated post-jam today that fixed a lot of stuff and I hope also touched on all the problems you had with the game. The player hitbox in 1.0 was bugged sadly, the guns you can pick up have a decently big hitbox and the game counted that as your hitbox when you held it.
Nice art and the voiceacting was great. Enjoyed the multiple different lines the game started with. I did encounter a bug when retrying the game the healthbars stopped working. Overall though well done nice entry :)
Thank you for checking it out and for the feedback! Yeah the UI was bugged in the jam version, we just released a 1.1 version post-jam with the fixes for that and other bugs.
Nice game, the art was great and the soundtrack amazing! I felt like the hitboxes were a little off, and also it would have been nice to have an audio cue for when you took/dealt damage.
Thanks for checking it out and for the feedback. Most of those things have been fixed in the 1.1 post-jam update!
Art, audio and movement controls are excellent. I just wish the weapon usage was more satisfying (bullets feel very slow and unresponsive at times). Overall a pretty good experience :)
Thanks for checking it out and for the kind words! Yeah we addressed all those things in the post-jam update which we'll be uploading soon, those were definitely pretty big issues for the feel of the game.
Really nice art assets and the music is good. Hitboxes seemed a bit off because it wasn't always obvious why I took damage? But otherwise enjoyable :-)
Thanks for checking it out and for the feedback! I just figured out the hitbox for guns when you pick them up counted as the player hitbox so your hitbox would turn insanely large when you held a gun. Will fix this for a post-jam version!
Fantastic artwork and music. Shooting could maybe have a bit more feedback, like sounds or effects when the bullets land, as it felt a little light. I encountered one bug where I died and hit try again and both me and Santa were then invincible. Overall it's a very solid entry!
Thanks for checking it out and for the feedback! Yeah the feedback is lackluster due to running out of time sadly. We plan to add that to a post-jam version. Restarting bugs out the health UI, but health still works.
Big funny and swag
thanks sebby <3 and thank u for playing ily
Pretty good game! I liked the concept and the execution is also quite nice for the time frame. I especially like the artstyle and the sinister Doom-like Christmas remixes. Voice acting is also a nice plus! My only issue is that there isn't enough visual feedback when you hit an enemy / get hit (think screen shake, freeze frames, flashes, etc.), so the game feels a bit less impactful than it would otherwise. Maybe something to consider for a post-jam version / if you ever make a game of this type again. Cheers!
Thank you for checking it out and for the feedback! I agree the player feedback is awful and needs to be more. We plan on fixing the bugs for the post-jam version, may also work on the visual feedback!
This is fun, love the art, all the different guns. Very good! Well done!
Thank you for checking it out!
Very good artstyle. The gunplay feels a little bit wonky and can be improved upon on. My favourite gun is the full auto. Without it the game, I think, would be too hard. Overall I had a pretty good damn time.
Thanks for checking it out and for the feedback! Balancing was done a bit late due to Santa taking a lot of time to work properly, sorry for the guns feeling a bit wonky!
Well done with this game, as others have said the art, voice, and music are all great and the fight was not too easy. My only problem is that Lewis seems to have a big hit box or maybe it's the elves' bullets? I just would notice him getting hurt when I thought a bullet would go past him, but great job nonetheless
Yeah I'm afraid we ran a little short on time when it came to balancing and we overlooked the hitboxes of the candy canes and santa's projectile. Thanks for the feedback and for checking it out!!
A fellow top down shooter admission! Absolutely love the art and the demonic Santa!
Thank you for checking it out!
Visuals are gorgeous and music is awesome.Gameplay looks pretty polished.Its amazing how you guys pulled this off in 2 days! Great work!
Thank you for checking it out and for the feedback!!
cool little game, but for some reason the hitboxes on the projectiles seem to be either massive or very small, I noticed that especially with the cane that the elves throw that it "hits" while I was thinking I was going to avoid them. managed to get a mutual K.O. with santa on my first run.
Thanks for checking it out and for the feedback!
I liked the game but what is the surprising element. I am too dumb to understand maybe 😊😂
Thanks for checking it out, the weapons you get are a surprise and that santa is evil was supposed to be a surprise as well. We planned on a short intro where he was nice at first and then when you tell him what you want he'd turn evil.
Cool assets, loved the intro music.
Hey, cool game! At some point my bullets became invisible, but that's not a huge deal gameplay-wise. What's the surprise, that santa is evil?
Hey, thanks for checking it out! All the weapons you get are a surprise (random) and that santa is evil yeah. We were planning on an intro where santa was first very nice but then turned out to be evil.
The art is amazing! So is the voice acting~! A great game!
Please check out my teams entry!
Thanks for checking it out! Love your game as well!
Holy cow that art is amazing for a one man effort! And the gameplay is solid too! I got really close to winning, but upon retrying Santa appeared to be immune. Besides that there isn't much to criticise, amazing work!
Thank you for the feedback and checking it out! I'll pass it on to your artist! Yeah the retry button is a bit glitchy sadly. Restarting the whole game should make it more stable.
