Christmas Combat: seasonal characters battle it out in a classical 2D 1 vs 1 beat 'em up!

Controls: Arrow keys to move, A and S to punch, Z and X to kick, A + S for special when charged.

Each character has strengths and weaknesses.

This game marks the debut of gavD's new Versus Effect 1 on 1 fighting game engine. You cannot change the controls in Jingle Ballistics, but future VE games will have this facility.

very nice

very nice, and unlockables are always a good way to let everybody play longer than 2 minutes. There was only one problem. I think that if you play without 'cheating' (repeating good attacks),the is normal too easy and hard is too hard. But whatever, it was very good!

gavD responds:

Yeah, difficulty is tough to gauge in this kind of game - we tried to make it a bit challenging without relying on cheap tricks like super tough enemies with massive life bars.

Nice to see you reply to your reveiws.

Thats always good to see. Especially since this is on front page.

It was quite good, i unlocked the Toy. But as the previous reviewer said, repeating strong moves will win always (eg. Frotsy's big punch).
Most fighting games have that problem so nothing serious. Well done, and keep up the good work!

People find this review helpful!
gavD responds:

I think that if people have taken the time to post a review, I should take the time to reply. It's polite, I guess!

Good game but short

Was a pretty good game but if you figured out a pattern could win on hard without getting touched. Toy was too easy to win with too. But not bad played through it twice.

gavD responds:


Yeah, it's beatable using cheap moves, future VE games will address that.

to hard

this is to hard next one make it easyer now i do six a bit a fighing games but you make the hits to hard

gavD responds:

Do you mean give the character more life?

I removed the "Easy" mode from the game because it was, well, too easy. Future Versus Effect games will have an Easy setting.
