Good fun running around throwing snowballs at elves. The environment was excellent, looking down on a snow covered town and forests from a mountain is great. I seemed to run for a while without any elves appearing so maybe a clearer route to follow would help. Overall a very good effort, kids would love this game!

This is stunningly beautiful: graphics = extremely talented to do all this in such short time!! As its unity, try to release a webplayer version. Amazing job.

Freaking fantastic!

The game looks fantastic. I didn't found the game very challenging, but I sure enjoyed the fight with the santa claws and the reloading system. The theme incorporation is not that original though. Job well done!

love it! beautiful level design, good voice acting for elf. (only seal the out-of-bounds area so players don't fall off the world and it's all good!). Love the detonation of the presents(holiday confetti). Would love to see more levels or different scenarios on where this is going.. Awesome job!

Really quite amazing to have put this together on such short time. You really need to put up a web-version though so people will play it. Also, WASD is not very left-handed-on-laptop-friendly. You already have arrows mapped so it would be a small effort to put reload on right control or similar.

Wow, for such a short timespan, this is a really good-looking game. It wasn't too clear what the candy-canes did, though (they didn't always boost my health), but apart from that it was pretty fun to play. Consider making a web build in the future too, it's extremely easy with Unity!

All this in 72 hours? Well I'll be damned! D:

Nice graphics and gameplay

Really great scenery.
The controlls are smooth. Music and Soundfx are very nice too.
It's abit difficult , I would have loved to play abit more hide and seek with santa claws, but the other evil elves constantly destroyed me ;)
Very beautiful job, kudos to your team :)

Fantastic game. Great fun and superb graphics and music. Just a shame you didn't pay much attention to the theme.

Probably one of (if not "the") very best games here. Fantastic job.

Beautiful looking game! Would LOVE full gamepad support!

This is a great game. Its is very polished. I like the theme of the game and I like the story of the game. The animations are awesome and the environment is breathe taking. there is no one way to beat the game and that is what makes me want to play it even more. I don't think it is a hard game to beat but it is challenging. The sounds make the game that more fun too.

Beautiful looking game. Hard to play on a laptop without a mouse thou. Great job in just a short amount of time.
