You could sell this one, it's complete. I've finished my first straight play-through, where I try to solve the puzzles as they come. Jumping up one square then to the next as in level 9 is rather difficult. It does seem to be easier when moving but it's still hard. I wouldn't change anything, though. I think it's a good balance between the time allotted, presents to deliver, and challenge.

The clock does get to be a pretty big factor some times. Many times I've ended the level with less than 200 ticks and haven't really had a chance to look at the level. It's a reminder to keep moving and the game is Santa's Delivery Rush. I'll have to make a note of the levels I'm struggling with, maybe add a few hundred more ticks to those?

Level 6: just finished with 238 ticks left. It was a bit of a rush! Teleport should require a step or two away before it teleports... more
        • Also glad to hear there hasn't been any super game breaking bugs found (yet.. :D). When Santa is in "Bender" mode (blend), the enemy passes by him and he completely disappears. This has to do with how I handled drawing the screen. I only draw when the sprite moves and it has no knowledge of what... more
