Day 1 of the 2018 Pico-8 Advent Calendar!

Thanks for checking out my entry for our community "Pico-8 Advent Calendar"!

It's a simple "race the clock" arcade game, with the goal of delivering as many presents as possible before sunrise. The entire game only lasts about a minute, with the idea that you will play many times, and try to beat your previous high score.

This just scream pure quality. The music is so catchy and the artwork's great and the multi-layered snow flakes look fantastic. Took a minute to get the core concept but it's fun, too. Favorited.

Amazing! I can feel the impact of running into a chimney and squashing all the reindeer.

I love the little game-over music. That's a nice touch.

it has a very nice feel to it; great job to all involved!

It's fun but some of the chimneys are too high for me to react to. Otherwise it's really fun!

Here's my high score for anyone who thinks they can beat me! (221)
