For the past 2 weeks or so, I’ve been working on a simple game to celebrate Christmas this year. Christmas came and went but I was unable to finish the game up in time. Due to my timing misjudgement, I was unable to get an actionscripter in time to help me out with the codes for my game. Even though it is just a really small game, it sucks having to put the development on hold.
A brief introduction about Stealin’ Christmas. It is a top down shooter and tells the story of how the Grinch started obsessing over stealing Christmas every year after being bullied constantly by Santa Claus when they were still in school. The player will control the Grinch in the game.
Below is a collection of pixel art and animation that I have done for the game:
Enemies are based on old-school toys like the monkeys from ‘Barrel of Monkeys’. I had plans for those hippos from ‘Hungry Hippos’ but had to cut them due to time constraint. When defeated, the enemies will shrink back to their toy form and explode like fireworks.
