Just play tested 1.1
Sun Jan 7, 2018 5:48am

It plays pretty nice! The requirement that Santa be on the downside of the jump to defeat an enemy will catch a few people but you're consistent about it so once they discover it they'll figure out how to handle it.

I kinda like the ability to jump in mid-air. (Run off a platform, then press space.) You could add a level or two where that move is required to get the bonus present.

  • Updated Santa's Christmas Rescue with bug fixes from Puckdropper as well as other fixes. I also included a 16-bit DOS exe file to run from Dosbox or an actual vintage machine. In full release after... more

        It's halfway through January, but that doesn't diminish the sentiment any!

                We know you and holidays... they just kinda pass and you're like "hm... maybe I should post on the NEMB happy holiday" and 15 days later the idea finally gets to your finger tips.

                      I have a concern wondering how much longer these forums will still be available and hosted. They're only run by two people and the site hasn't had any changes in at least 10 years. With people moving ... more

                          When they made the ad portion, images were generally smaller so the scaling wasn't a big deal even on dial up. Now almost no one uses dial up so even though the images sizes have grown, internet... more

                            Larger images are bigger. (I feel like this needs a citation needed.) If they're feeding an extra 5KB on every image, that's thousands of KB they don't need to be feeding to everyone on the internet. ... more

                              Wow, that's quite a large photo for being so small. I bet a JPG would do that in 10KB. It's kinda annoying waiting for it to load. One thing I've got to wonder is why my browser seems to reload it... more

                                  whatever the units are. The worst part is that they're using HTML to shrink the image, and that's been a no-no since HTML came out!
