'Tis The Season for Giving

It's that special time of year again, time to crown the Prince of Presents, the God of Giving, the Baron of Bestowal. Compete against your friends to bring joy to the world through incessant present pelting. Watch out for naughty kids though. All they deserve is a nice big lump of coal.

I liked the art in this, everything was well drawn and fun to look at. The music was pretty good as well. Didn't wear out its welcome, even after hearing it for a while. My only issue was how hard the kids were to hit at times. Good job on this, it was fun.

Thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed it :) And to answer some of your questions, gifting back-to-back does in fact give you a multiplier! It's really the only way to get a high enough score to get some of the unlockable characters. My personal high score is 16100 :) Also more levels and powerups are in development, so stay tuned for updates in the future!

You're quite welcome. Yeah, I did finally catch on to the multiplier after playing a few more times and managed to get about 7100 points. I like the unlockable characters and the option for extra skins for each.(Didn't notice that feature until after recording.)

I'll definitely try to keep an eye out for the updates. This game seems like a fun time.
