Santa Run - New Xmas Game
If you've been in the Game Factory recently you'll know that I've been creating a new xmas game for the Amiga AGA over the last 7 days.

Last night the game was finished and so you can download it now via my itch page.


Here's a video link...




Santa Run is a free Christmas game that was created in seven days for all Commodore Amiga fans.

Control Santa as you leap from roof to roof and deliver presents down the chimneys.

Santa Run is a score based game, if you reach the end of the street you will have completed the game. A nice greeting awaits at the end of the game.


Commodore Amiga A1200 or above, real hardware or emulated. The game comes on an ADF but the files can be copied to run from Workbench. The game requires a joystick or control pad in port 2 of your Amiga if running on real hardware.


Starting the Game

In the Title screen you can push Left for easy mode and Right for hard mode.

Easy mode you will be given 150 gifts to throw into the chimneys and 10 special Elf jumps.
Hard mode you will be given 100 gifts and only 5 special Elf Jumps. In hard mode you get more points for reaching further into the game.

Push Fire button to leap from one roof to another. You can jump when not on a roof but doing so will use up a special Elf jump. Use Elf jumps sparingly to avoid not landing on a roof.

Push Left and Right to throw gifts into the chimneys.

You can building score multipliers by chaining gifts in to the chimneys without missing.


Any monetary donations will be split between the developers evenly.

Merry Xmas everyone and please enjoy the game.
