Santa Clause is coming...

I had to rush this to get it out on time, because I'm leaving to go shopping. This game was inspired by my previous game panda slaughter. Same concept, but much more neat looking.

- when you first play, there's a bug that skips the menu. This doesn't affect gameplay at all.

- Global variables do not reset (just reload the page)

How to play:

Run around (WASD) and throw presents at baby gingerbread people (Space)

awesome game man! you should teach me that mouse point- shooting technique

larrynachos responds:

Sure man! I don't know how to code it in flash (I use construct 2), but it's probably the same principle. I'll message you it later.

Not a bad game but not for me

larrynachos responds:

Yeah, I was kinda bored of it myself. Just needed to get it out.

The game is alright; it's not too good or bad. It's very simplistic, which isn't necessarily bad, but it is a tad bit boring. All you really have to do is rapidly tap the center of the screen and you'll get a bunch of points; I feel the game could be a bit better if several things were altered slightly.
The first thing you could do is make it so the Gingerbread Men came from more than just one angle, so that players have to aim. A second thing is the aesthetics; the look of the game. If you drew the images (in Paint or Photoshop), it might have a less 'choppy' look to it. That, and adding a small bit of animation to it would help; have Santa throw the presents instead of having him stand still when they fire, or have the Gingerbread Men move their bodies as they walk.
Now, as I said, this is not a bad game; it could be better though.
Have a Merry Christmas.

You know, this isn't to bad for something "half assed". The animations on the characters are nice, and it functions well, but it's a bit boring without any enemy type or audio.
I do wish that the screen didn't run on for an eternity as well, it takes away from the game, and you can't really see what your hitting even when you score points.

Believe it or not, It's fun to play man!
I really had fun! The only problem I had with t was it was a little repetitive.
But there were nice colors/graphics and VERY nice music!
Good job!

larrynachos responds:

I was going to add a lot more, but I ran short of time. Thanks!
