I haven't seen a game like this before. The unique goal of resupplying the elf while also leading the horde of children to the elf lead to a very thoughtful gameplay experience! I would say I might have had more fun if Santa was a little faster but still great idea nonetheless!

Thanks! I didn't really have enough time to balance his speed and stuff but I hope you still had fun :)

Cute graphics and wonderful music!

Developer(+1)

Aw thanks a ton :). It was hard trying to split my time between art and code so I'm glad you liked the art. I didn't make the music but thanks for playing and rating :)

I like the idea :) a lot.
The trees are annoying thou. Good luck !

Developer

Yeah I wanted to do the tree colliders manually but I use the tile map asset in unity and could figure out how to so I had to just use the auto collider. Hope you still had fun though and thanks for playing :) 

Loved the idea and gameplay! The trees' collisions were a bit frustrating though, i was caught between two trees too often

Developer

Yeah I couldn't figure out how to manually do the colliders on the trees. Thanks for playing though hope you had fun :)

I like it, the idea of controlling two characters at once is very cool and it works quite well.

Developer(+1)

Thanks a ton! To be honest I was starting to doubt my game because I thought the two person at a time might feel a bit clunky but I'm glad you liked it :)

The idea of controlling both characters works really well and is fun to play!

Developer

Thanks! Initially I wanted to go for a thing where you controlled several elves like a necromancer type of thing but I didn't realize how long art would take me. I'm glad you like it :)

At first I thought it was elven bandits trying to kill Santa! I was running around for a minute when I realized they were just children! I then finally realized I should read the instructions and deliver presents with the elf!

I love your Santa + Elf design, they're very solid looking pixel art! Good job! Also, props on polishing it to have a menu and getting the whole High-Score system also put in there!

My little brother said the same thing about the kids looking like bandits lol. I'm glad you liked the art and hope you had fun :)

I like the concept of this game. Definitely quite creative, and fun to play.

At first I thought wow this is way too hard; since the santa moves slightly faster than the elf, and the kids move slightly faster than the santa (?).

Then I tried to instead move the santa to the elf, and sometimes make big U moves and got 17 points.

Developer

Wow thats a pretty good score. Sorry about the the difficulty i didnt really have enough time to balance things. Thanks a ton for playing and reviewing my game though hope you had fun :)

Took me a bit of time to scroll down on the screen, maybe info about the control scheme on the front screen? I assumed that it was that we have to deliver to elves and avoid the children. 


It's pretty good, I'm happy with the score I got, I feel maybe swapping the control schemes for santa and the elf would be a good idea? It feels that the "weak santa" is more nimble than the elf, though he's very slow.

Oh yeah I was planning on putting the controls on the screen inbetween the  menu and the game but ran out if time thanks for playing though hope you had fun 😊
