This is a game I wrote 10 years ago called Sint '99, and now ported to Flash.

Description:

Platform game about Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas), collect the presents and cookies in each level and deliver them to the right chimneys before dawn.

Each chimney is marked with a number (number of gingerbread cookies needed) and a color (color of the present). Sinterklaas can carry lots of presents behind him, but he can only drop the first one into a chimney.

Sinterklaas must deliver all the presents and cookies before dawn. If he also collects all remaining cookies, there will be a bonus level.

Sinterklaas' quest over the roofs is very dangerous: the old man will not survive a high fall. Don't touch the sharp TV antennas and be careful for the mean birds, they will try to steal the cookies and presents. But it's not like a saint to kill birds, so leave them alive.

Also, there are chocolate letters, collect the letters S, I, N and T for an extra life.

Move with the arrow keys and jump with Space.

awesome

I wasn't expecting to find a game about sinterklaas on newgrounds
but the lack of soundtrack made it a little bit dull, try looking for good music in the audio portal (maybe you can even find something sinterklaas related)

gameplay flaws

Sometimes when you jump you jump into a bird flying down that you couldn't have possibly seen, the view needs to be 50% larger.

Birds must really hate Santa

Or Sinterklaas, depending on which country you're from.

I like the fact that you literally die when you don't make it before the time is up and Christmas had arrived.

At first, I couldn't get understand how to get up to the roofs in the first level. But then, there's a variety of ways. Tree branches, the lamp post (especially at the end of that stage), and even Mario-stomping birds will get you up there.

Then, there was the aspect of delivering presents to the correct color chimneys. The fact that you couldn't deposit a present in your chain just because it wasn't the first one really made things a bit of a memorize-a-route kind of thing.

Just a few things.

I hate random bird attacks, all because the screen doesn't pan up fast enough. Especially when you're doing superjumps off lamp posts and such, only to get hit by a bird that was hovering offscreen.

A minor correction: it shouldn't say "Hurry, It's getting lighter" when the morning is approaching. It should say "Hurry, it's almost sunrise."

Two missions? I thought there'd be more to it. How about rescuing his reindeer or something like that?
