*originally made for Ludum Dare Jam 25*

From the makers of the 2011 smash hit, Holiday Havoc, comes another classic Christmas title boasting retro pixel art, catchy chiptune tracks, and shockingly addictive gameplay! Underground Pixel is proud to present its latest Ludum Dare entry... Holly Jolly Pyromaniac!

Some of Santa's elves are planning to revolt... and rather than have a calm and rational conversation with them about it, he'd rather play the role of a villain this year and blow their houses up with explosives! Traitorous elves live in green houses, and loyal elves live in purple ones. Don't take out your own forces! Compete with your friends on the leaderboards! Who will claim the #1 spot for themselves?

This game has it all! In the jam's 72 short ours, we managed to pack in panicking elves, a deranged Santa Claus, GOATS, and more! This game can now be all yours for the low, low price of FREE. So play now! Now. Do it now. Are you playing yet? Why not? Stop reading this message. PLAY IT NOW!!!

loved the music a lot X3
and the graphics too ^^

turns hard more forward on the game, i still love it ^^

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense why the elves are revolting or why they would all live in brightly decorated christmas houses while the "good" elves lived in normal bland houses. Would've made more sense if you said "Santa hates crappy christmas decorations." Nicely done for the short time limit, though.

Swell art, and anything with goats gets a thumbs up from me, but the gameplay is sort of bland, and the music gets a tad repetitive! Rare to see such high-quality pixel art on this site, but I wish the game were more fun.

Nice, good job on the pixels and how they move, great music fun to play when your bored

Dig the style, but this really needs more gameplay elements to be any fun. You can just sorta zone out and press X when you see something green until you get bored and lose on purpose.
