Present Panic


Released: July 2001  Developed by Supanova Software
Story: (quote from developer's webpage...external link)
 "Santa Claus is in trouble! The elves have gone on strike and spread all the
  presents for Christmas around Santa's factory in the north pole.
  Santa must travel through eight areas of the North Pole manufacturing plant
  and recover all the presents in time for christmas day! "

 A button makes Santa jump, and B button makes Santa run.
 Santa can jump farther while he's running.
 There's not only "time limit" but also levers and wooden containers.
 They makes the game trickier.
 The difficulty itself is higher than general commercial GBC games.
 If you're an enthusiast for both xmas and hardcore platformer,
 this game are recommended for you !

 it becomes nearly impossible after you earned more than 600 points.
 But don't forget that you can carry up to 5 gifts at once.
 Too simple game, huh? Remember, the game was created in only 2 days in the same year
 GBA hardware released. Superb !!

Released: Janualy 2007  Developed by Thingker Studios
 This game won the 1st place in Drunken Coders Xmas Coding Competition 2006.

 Clem is a retarded elf who loves presents. You have to guide him to all presents not to fall
 down from the platform. He would continue to walk unless he get a present / "stop" tile /
 bombs or be stuck in front of the ice block. There are teleporters, too.
 Cute and nice game for xmas.

Santa saves xmas


Released: January 2007  Developed by
 This game was created for Drunken Coders Xmas Coding Competition 2006.
 
 Control your Santa and pick / throw snowballs.
 You can also jump and change the range of snowballs, however,
 actually you don't have to do, I think.
 Only you have to do is getting closer (to avoid enemies' snowballs) and defeat enemies.
 Nothing happens even if you guide Santa to the right of the map. Sorry, nearly unplayable.

Santa's Skidoo Scarper!


Released: January 2007  Developed by Paradise Games
 This game was the 6th place in Drunken Coders Xmas Coding Competition 2006.
Story: (quote from readme file)
 "It's the night before Christmas Eve and Santa is running late! Never again will he order the
  presents using online shopping! The delivery men have lost them all and left them all over town!
  Quick! Get collecting those presents on Santa's trusty Turbo-Skidoo and get Santa home

It seems a bit hard to play the game on SNES console. Tiles themselves are well drawn.

 Xmas Coding Competition 2006.   Story: (quote)

Well-done designed maps. There are many big enemies and boss. Recommended.

Christmas Pong


Released: October 2008  Developed by Jinroh DEV

 This is a Xmas themed "Pong" game, very classic arcade game in 1970s.
 A yellow ball appears from a xmas tree, which doesn't have collision detection.
 ...So, it is just "Pong" game.
 You will get boring after 2 ~ 3 minutes at most.
 I promised.
 It would better if the game has background(s) which we can feel xmas, though.

Clem the Retarded elf 2: Blind Elf Walkin'

 Highly recommended more than previous "Clem 1" .
