Robo Santa vs. The Naughty Boyz

So I made a game for another Christmas-themed game jam over at itch.io . It fits my typical mold (and started off as a One Hour Game Jam game), so I figured I would post it here as well. I hope you all enjoy it. :)

The Naughty Boyz are fed up with always receiving coal in their stockings, so they plan to shut down Santa's coal-mining operation so he'll have no choice but to give them gifts for Christmas.

There's only one thing to do while Santa's takin' care of business all around the world: DEPLOY ROBO SANTA!

Hold off the Naughty Boyz as long as you can, by throwing candy at them!

--CONTROLS--
ARROW KEYS: move Robo Santa
Z KEY: hold to launch rapid-fire candy canes and peppermints
X KEY: press to lob a chocolate orange

Avoid their snowballs, and don't be pushed off the screen by the obstacles. The more Naughty Boyz you stuff with sweet treats, the higher your score!

Robo Santa's grey skin initially gave me more of a Zombie Santa vibe.

Zmobie, Roobots

Follow your bliss, sergiocornaga. Follow your bliss.

Also: nice scores so far, y'all! :)

I'm glad I was able to save

I'm glad I was able to save santa by giving naughty children candy.

Those naughty boyz sure get plentiful by the end, but by then they don't have time to defeat the factory before santa gets back, so I guess it's okay.

This one feels nice! I like Robo Santa's face very much.
